Year 3 visited Dilston Physic Garden today to end our Science unit learning about plants. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the garden, completing the scavenger hunt and making our very own ointments in the Herbology House. Thankfully the weather was on our side, so it was a joy to sit and have our lunch in the “sitooterie”, before playing croquet on the meadow alongside a few games of giant chess
Year 5 enjoyed making pictures for our Partner School, Ecole Internationale Differdange, in Luxembourg.
Ecole Internationale Differdange is opening up some of their unsued buildings to provide a School for refugees from Ukraine. Year 5 have created pictures to decorate the walls in these classrooms to provide a positive and inspiring environment for the Ukrainian children.
We made pictures of our hands waving hello. Our hands can be kind, gentle, hard working and a support for others. We also included some inspirational quotes.
We are looking forward to hearing what our friends in Luxembourg think about them!
Thank you so much to all of the children that made egg-cellent entries for our Easter Egg Competition.
Please can we thank Morrisons, Tesco’s and Sainsbury’s for donating Easter Egg prizes.
Below are some of our prize winners.
We have been practising a range of food preparation skills in our Design and Technology lessons. Working in pairs, we have practised peeling, grating and cutting. We discussed how the bridge and claw cutting techniques can help us when working in a safe way. We are looking forward to putting our hard work to good use in the summer term, when we will be designing and creating our healthy sandwich!
We are very pleased to let you know that your generous donations at both the Mothers Day and Easter Services mean that £369.78 has been raised to help the people of Ukraine.
Year 6 have been really enjoying their new role in leading Celebration Assembly on a Friday afternoon.
Supported by Miss. Thompson Year 6 have been volunteering to lead and run our whole School assembly each Friday.
They are very confident speaking in front of over 200 of their peers and thoroughly enjoy talking to the younger children about what they have been doing and sharing their successes. It is great to see them really developing their leadership skills.
Well done Year 6! We are really proud of you.
