Our Spring Term topic is Frozen Kingdom and we have already launched our learning with a Polar Explorer's training day. We completed orienteering, strength, resilience and problem solving challenges before learning about how to create artistic light effects in our own compositions of 'The Northern Lights'. We look forward to showing off out work at our Polar Exhibition on Friday 14th February. See home learning page for this term's homework project.

Our evacuation to Whitehall was a great success. The children were resilient, brave and became more organised and confident by the end of the week. Climbing, stream scrambling and even abseiling - nothing held them back.

We look forward to sharing our achievements at our celebration assembly on Wednesday 29th January @ 2:15pm.

Many thanks to all those who sponsored the children for our Jump Rope for Heart event. The children were amazing and completed all the challenges smiles on their faces despite the weather. Feedback from the children suggests we may have raised over £500 for The British Heart Foundation. Sponsorship Money is due in by Friday 8th November.

VR Tour of the Circulatory System.

Surgery School Day

To launch our Blood Heart Topic, Year 6 became trainee surgeons. We learnt about the heart by dissecting a pigs heart. We explored blood by making a model in a bottle and we drew life-size models of the circulation system. The children were enthusiastic and participated brilliantly.
