The pictures from our visit with Lucy Turner are eventually ready to view! We tried spotty dogs, mountain climbers, push ups and star jumps and it was exhausting! Well done to every single person who took part and tried their hardest. We were extremely proud of everyone!
This week the whole school has celebrated Art Week. Each year group focussed on a different art movement. We each learned about a different art style, some famous artist and create our own piece of fantastic art.

Year 5 were so excited to launch our Mars rover competition today. After learning about Space in Science and writing descriptions of our own Mars rovers in English, we are using TinkerCAD to design our new Mars rovers in Computing. The top 3 designs from each class will be printed into a model using a 3D printer – we can’t wait to see the final products!
In Science Year 5 have been learning about Earth and Space and therefore we were excited to take part in Mars Hour today! We are becoming experts as we are designing rovers with programmable Lego in DT and writing about Curiosity in English. We enjoyed taking part in the Robokids activity to find out even more about what life might be like on Mars. We found out that the first person to visit Mars is thought to be in primary school now, perhaps it will be one of our pupils!
We were lucky enough to have a break in the wet and windy weather to go outside and create a scale model of the Sun and the planets! We string and chalk to draw out the circumference and a metre ruler to measure the distance between them.
Inspired by the Maya and the artist Chris Ofili, the children have designed and made masks. They persevered with the Modroc and this week painted their first layer!
Yesterday, children were taught how to do CPR. They were absolutely brilliant and I am so very proud of them. – Miss Almond
Today we were able to spend our attendance stars from Autumn 2!
We had so much to choose from and enjoyed spending our well earned stars. Did you know we get a star for every full week we have in school? We were able to choose prizes such as; superhero masks, rubbers, zip bracelets, cars and so much more!
We are so excited for the attendance trolley to come around next time but for now, Miss Little has to rest her feet!
They’re here! The long awaited Thurston pictures!
It has been fantastic hearing about the adventures of our explorers, the amazing activities and that age old right of passage… jumping off the jetty!
As you’ll see by a lot of our pictures, if you give a 10 year old a camera, a selfie is inevitable!
We hope everyone had an amazing adventure, the pictures look brilliant!
