Our Collective Worship and Jigsaw Themes

This term our Collective Worship theme is "FRIENDSHIPS" and our Jigsaw theme is "Changing Me".

Year 6 had a fantastic time at Hill End last week. The children: had a barbecue, went on a nature walk, toasted marshmallows on a camp fire, celebrated a couple of birthdays, stayed up very late, got up very early, ate breakfast, did some bush craft and finally attempted a challenge trail. What an incredible trip! I'm incredibly proud of all of them.

What a fantastic Sports Day! I was so proud of my class today for being such great sports and for their excellent effort. It was lovely to see them supporting each other no matter what colour team they were in. Well done to the Yellow Team, who were ultimately victorious.

World War II Artefacts

Mrs Silverwood brought some real World War II artefacts into class for the children to see and even wear.
