On Friday 4th March, over 50 Mums attended a tea party hosted by the pupils in Years 1 and 2 as part of our topic 'Queen for a Day'...

During this mini-topic, pupils developed many skills in DT such as designing and evaluating a product, sewing skills, collage and cookery skills. The children worked really hard preparing the party and it was areal success. The hall was decorated with bunting, paper chains and balloons; cakes and biscuits were served; poetry was performed and Mums were given personalised crowns and purses. We were extremely pleased that so many of you attended so thank you. It has been lovely to read such positive feedback about the event too!

On Friday 4th March we were visited by the team from the Bloodhound Project.

The BLOODHOUND Project is building a supersonic car that is designed not only to go faster than the speed of sound (supersonic) but to over 1,000mph (1,600km/h.
The pupils used the information they gained to build their own cars.

On Monday 8th February Year 5/6 spent the whole day as Victorian Children. A "really" Victorian teacher visited each class and talked about what it was like to live in Victorian times. The children practised handwriting, chanted their tables and recited poetry. Anyone making a mistake or not following instructions had to stand facing the wall wearing the dunce's hat!!
