9 May 2022
On Monday, Year 4 received a visit from a Viking warrior. It was really exciting hearing about Viking life. We learnt that they came to Britain on their long ships, built rectangular houses (using wattle and daub) and came up with rather vicious punishments. Luckily, the Viking didn't have his sword or it would have been even more scary!
Finally, we had our futures told via Viking runes - some of us had some very interesting futures foretold!

Year 1 were lucky to have Animal UK visit this week with an array of creatures for the children to look at and hold. The children saw a snake, tortoise, toad, meerkat and a tarantula. We all learnt lots about what they eat and where they live!
Silly Science Workshops Y1-6
29 Mar 2022
Children enjoyed the Silly Science workshops we had in school this term. Professor Nitrate, who visited our school ignited the children’s curiosity and taught them all about
elements, why molecules bond, the magic of lift and the power of pressure as well as experiencing explosions! They got to see how everyday items had an element of science. The excitement of science brought the children’s learning to life as they focused on science such as gravity, thrust, lift, pressure, chemical reactions, fire, molecules, and bonds and of course, explosions! Lots of children as well as adults enjoyed this engaging and interactive workshop!

World Book Day
3 Mar 2022
We had a wonderful WBD yesterday! This year children, and staff dressed up as a character from one of their favourite stories. Can you guess who they were? The best dressed character for each class won a prize. Alongside this, children completed World Book Day tasks in their classroom and took part in some fun activities. Early Years &KS1 created their Superteacher, and KS2 took part in The Masked Reader, where they had to guess which teacher was reading. It was great to see so many children sending their photos of themselves reading in unusual places; we have enjoyed looking at them! Thank you to our community for supporting the event.

Habitats Workshop - Year 4
11 Feb 2022
Last Friday, year 4 took part in an animal workshop to explore how they adapt to their habitats through adaptations and special features. The children enjoyed spending time with a 10ft snake; a hairy tarantula; a squirmy bearded dragon and a very cuddly (yet smelly) meerkat. The children learnt many interesting facts including that spiders cannot see and that snakes only have to eat one chicken every two months. Many children overcame their fears to touch the creatures and Mr. Curtis was very pleased that there were no frogs!
10 Feb 2022
As part of our English and Science work in Year 4, we planted 4 new trees on the school field last week. We learnt how to use the spade correctly and all children, with a strong show of strength, added soil to the plant the trees. We also had a talk about why they were important. The children impressed us with their knowledge of how trees provide oxygen: act as a habitat for different animals and act as a resource for us to make paper and build furniture. We are glad to see year 4 taking responsibility for making the world a better place.
