Children in year 5 had a fantastic time when the specialist teachers from Bikeability came in to support for 2 days. The children showed excellent behaviour, attitude, skills and ability, as they learned how to signal correctly and confidently cycle on the road. Well done year 5.

Our Harvest Festival was a joyful celebration introduced by our head boy and girl and Star anise class performed a poem. Rev. Philip Stevens came to say a prayer and give thanks for the food at harvest time. Thank you to everyone who contributed to our celebration, the donations of food will be sent to the homeless charity, Harbour Place.

Year 5 Hook Day

Star Anise class had a fantastic hook day, where we looked at how people around the world respond to natural disasters.

As part of our 'Extreme Earth' topic, the children researched a range of natural disasters (many taking place within the least year). We looked at the causes and effects of earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis and extreme weather phenomena. We then analysed the damage they caused to the environment and the impact they had on communities.

Following research, the children recorded news reports using a variety of recording equipment. It was an exciting day and the children made a fantastic effort.
