Year 1 were taken back in time and visited a Victorian school where they were taught by a Victorian teacher, in a Victorian classroom, whilst wearing Victorian clothes. They were given a short Maths and English lesson and were even required to write on a slate board. The children were then able to explore the Victorian town and experience what life was like for a Victorian child.
On Friday 18th May we celebrated the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle.
To mark this very special occasion, the children took part in lots of activities, from afternoon tea parties to art activities looking at British Values. In addition to this, all children took part in a competition to design a commemorative plate. The winners from each class will be given the opportunity to turn their design into a real commemorative plate which will then be displayed in school!
Here are a few photos from the day.
A huge WELL DONE to all of our Year 2 and Year 6 pupils who have completed their SATs examinations over the last two weeks. They have worked super hard and we are very proud of them.
On Thursday 3rd May the Animal Man came into school. We had a fantastic time looking at lots of different animals and learning about their diet, habitat and how to classify them with in the animal kingdom.
To help raise awareness of autism we all wore our brightest, silliest socks.
