Knowledge is Power!

Check out this amazing video made by a Year 5 child after they had seen the knowledge organiser for their current topic!

A really good example of how we hope the children across the school will use the information within the knowledge organisers to extend their topic learning.

Have a look at the Y5 Knowledge Organiser and then watch the amazing video to see how they are related.

Dressin’ Up for the day

Today is a school wide dressing up day! The children have really gone for it and look fantastic.

Year 4 School Journey

Wow! What an amazing time Year 4 have had on their residential visit to Grosvenor Hall.

We had great luck with the weather and the kids have really pushed themselves on a wide range of activities. Their behaviour has been good and the teachers are all really proud of the effort and courage that they have displayed.

The children have had a wonderful time and we are looking forward to a final set of activities before we board the coach home.
