Year 6 enjoyed their 1st of 5 sessions with British Cycling. Here they are riding their Sir Chris Hoy bikes which are all provided free of charge. Today the children focused on how to get on and off a bike safely, how to correctly fit a helmet as well as how to safely ride a bike. They particularly enjoyed showing their control when seeing who could go the slowest!
Well done to Year 6 who have shown maturity, perseverance and determination to succeed throughout SATs week.

During assemblies we are once again focusing on the 5 ways to well-being. Our first focus was 'mindfulness'. Here's year 6 creating their own positive vibes posters ahead of their SATs.
This weeks focus is 'connect'.
What an amazing day Year 4 had learning about the Ancient Greeks.
The children were transported back in time by Steve from Humph's Histories who taught the children a range of information about the Ancient Greeks including how they can find out about the past and how we can learn about the past by what was left behind.
There were lots of hands-on activities also that the children thoroughly enjoyed especially making and painting Greek shields, crushing grapes with their feet, solving the Archimedes Puzzle, exploring the different foods the Ancient Greeks ate and putting their teamwork to the test by exploring different battle formations.
A superb day of learning that will stay in their memories for many years to come.
Year 2 kick-started their final topic 'Inter-Nation Media Station!' with a fantastic Inspiration Day. They dressed up as news reporters and had solve the mystery of who stole the class hedgehog! After solving the mystery, they made news reports on the suspects and their alibis. What a fantastic day!
To mark Edward the Elder learning French for a whole year, we held a French Day on 25th March. Children and staff were invited to wear blue, white and red or traditional French clothing. Classes participated in a range of French themed activities including singing, playing bowls, French themed Easter Egg hunt and crafts. Children were even able to taste traditional French cuisine.

We had an amazing World Book Day. There were so many different characters in our classrooms - Harry Potter, Miss Trunchbull and even Cruella de Vil! We love reading!
Teachers swapped classes for story time - this was enjoyed by all! Here's Mrs Evans in her element reading 'My Bum is SO NOISY!' and 'Granny dropped her chompers down the toilet' to Year 6! They LOVED the props too!
We held our first pre-loved book sale. Thank you to families for all the wonderful donations. All classes visited and had the opportunity to purchase a pre-loved book for 50p. Year 6 were very happy with their new books!
Year 6 can't believe they've completed the HeadStart programme already! Special thanks to Duncan for the brilliant sessions. We will be sure to put our new skills around emotional well-being to good use!
Here are some photos of Year 6 from Number Day showing great resilience when exploring numbers!
