Trip to the National Railway Museum
On Monday 5th February, all of Year 5 and 6 went on a trip to the National Railway Museum in York, where they got to see some of the trains they have been learning about in real life.
The children were all very excited to see their topic really come to life. Children in 5P were particularly thrilled to see the Mallard, which still holds the record for being the fastest steam engine in the world, reaching an amazing 126mph. They also got to see some of the other engines they had been learning about, such as: The Evening Star; the 0-series Bullet Train; and a replica of Stephenson’s Rocket.
The children also took part in an exciting science workshop about how trains have developed throughout history due to man’s ‘need for speed’. Some children (and staff!) were invited to take part in experiments on the stage, the children all contributed to answering questions (which demonstrated their knowledge of the topic) and everybody came away having learned lots of new things.
All the Year 5 and 6 children were very well-behaved and a great day was had by all!
Inspire Morning – Moving Vehicles (D&T)
Thank you to everybody who came to our Inspire Morning linked to our History topic of A Journey Through Time.
The children worked very hard to design their vehicles, which were inspired by our History topic. They did really well considering the fact that they needed to make part of them from wood and that they needed to move. We were really impressed with the quality of the vehicles that were created during our Inspire Morning – the school hall was a hive of industry! People were sawing, gluing, painting, cutting, constructing and being very creative!
Thank you once again for supporting your child in this piece of work. We really hope you enjoyed it too!
Inspire Morning – Holes
Thank you to everybody who came to our Inspire Morning linked to our class book, Holes. I hope you managed to get a sense of what the children do in their English lessons and the high expectations we set.
The children worked really hard and the writing they produced on this morning was of a very high standard, with some excellent character back-stories being created.
Thank you once again to everyone who came and well done to all the children.
Roald Dahl Day
We had a super time celebrating Roald Dahl Day on Thursday 21st September. All the children really put a lot of effort into dressing up as their favourite characters from Roald Dahl’s books and they all looked fantastic!
We had a great morning making our tortoises, which were inspired by the book Esio Trot, and I have to say they are wonderful. The children worked incredibly hard to create their tortoises and they demonstrated some great team-working skills by helping each other throughout the morning.
