What a brilliant start to the new term! Mr Sensible visited the school today to show us some circus skills. He worked with the children and gave them the opportunity to try: peacock feather balancing, plate spinning, diablos, flowers sticks, stilt walking, unicycle, trike and poi. As always the children were amazing and got the chance to showcase their new skills to the rest of the school at the end of the day.
Year 6 made the trip to St Peter's and St Paul's this morning for this year's Harvest Celebration. The children explained what happens to vegetables after they have been harvested until they arrive on our plates. They were very clear and finished with a superb rap. Great effort guys!
Our local MP, Robert Courts, visited Year 5 and 6 this morning to explain how a bill is passed through parliament. The children debated whether we should have P.E. every lesson. After much discussion, it was decided that we should have other lessons too.
As part of National Fitness day, Year 6 skipped non-stop for 10 minutes. There were a lot of red faces but we all felt a lot fitter for it!
Year 6 travelled to Oxford this morning for Junior Citizens. They learnt how to keep themselves and others safe in different - very lifelike - scenarios. The children were brilliantly behaved and a credit to our school.
