    Linacre Woods Trip

    What a fantastic and muddy trip to Linacre Woods today for Year 6.

    The children loved a break from the classroom the extend their learning outdoors. They took part in a nature trail, measured the age and height of trees, worked on their measurement estimation skills and also completed a photography challenge. These photos will soon be used as part of a gallery where parents and children will be able to vote for their favourite in each catergory.

    BBC Filming

    We were exceptionally lucky this week to have a visit from the BBC. We have been selected by them to star in a documentary called ‘Super Schools’.

    The children were on best behaviour and their learning was as spectacular as always. 

    This week has also been Science Week with a focus around plastic pollution. We have completed several investigations including making bio-degradable plastic and exploring which material acted as a best filter. Tomorrow, we looked forward to completing our litter pick around the town to help encourage recycling  

    Great work Year 6 :)

    World Book Day and Eco Day

    What a busy week we’ve had in Year 6. 

    We started with Eco Day on Wednesday where the children learnt about the devastating effects of plastic waste pollution. We will continue with more work on this in our science week next week  

    We then had World Book Day on Thursday. Thanks to all those who made the effort to dress up and to those parents who were able to come and read with their children in the morning. The children took part in a mystery of the golden pen and were great detectives in cracking the codes to work out who had stolen the pen.
