Life and learning

Upcoming School Trip

Next term we will be visiting the National Holocaust Centre in Newark and experiencing their ‘Journey’ tour. It is a fantastic experience and will be a great way to support our World War Two Learning.  The visit is on May 18th and we will be needing parent helpers so if you are interested in coming along please let your child’s class teach know as soon as possible.

Please remember that all children will need a packed lunch on the day.

What do you already know about World War Two? The journey is a story of a Jewish boy, called Leo, living in Berlin in 1938. Can you predict what life would have been like for him?


Super solar elcipes!

On Friday 19th March 2015, it was the solar elcipes at 9.41AM! To view safely, so that we didn’t become blind by the force, we used paper/card with a whole inside to watch the eclipes. We saw a cresant when we put it on the wall. The next full/total eclipes will be in 2090!

Kwik cricket and rounders event


We will be entering the Kwik Cricket and Rounders qualifiers during June, in the hope that our school can qualify for the Sainsbury’s Summer Games in July; this is due to be held at Yarborough Sports Centre and is a fantastic opportunity for your child to participate in a competitive sports event.  Last year the children even got to meet some British Olympic stars.

To give ourselves the best opportunity to qualify, I would like to run some training events after the Easter Holidays.  They will run on a Monday night, straight after school until 4.15pm.

If your child would be interested in attending these events please contact me as soon as possible via email ( or in person.  Once I have judged interest, I will let you know the training dates and times.

Thank you in advance

World Book Day

On World Book Day, all of the activities revolved around extracts from different books. One of the favourite sessions was spent in the studio – Year 5 created a class soundscape that reflected a spooky setting, using an extract from Harry Potter. The children matched the instruments they thought were appropriate and considered how they should be played to create imagery.

Year 5’s Brilliant Biomes!


Today, year 5 have been creating our very own biomes. We had to research about how the different plants and animals would adapt to the biome, so that we could accurately make it. We used the ‘Eden Project’ for inspiration.
