Throughout the year children have had a great time in all conditions planting vegetables and flowers, including their own plants and sunflowers.Gardening Club
Such a terrific 2 days! This year the children went to a new residential venue in North Yorkshire and got to try many new experiences. The children were involved with heating the centre and making their own beds, as well as zip-wire, low ropes, night walk (won by Team Victory), tree climbing, bush craft, archery and team building. The children were so well behaved and it was amazing to see them having such fun and trying new activities, like drinking 'Pine' Tea! The only disappointing time was when we left!Peat Rigg - March Residential

To supplement work done during R.E. week, both Year 5 classes visited a local temple to find out more about how Hindus practise their faith in a house of worship. They got to look at artifacts, try traditional clothing garments and learn about Hindu Gods and marital ceremonies.Temple visit - 21.11.13
To support work in Maths and learning about nets and 3D shapes and to link with our topic work on Space, the children have been using Techcards and other materials to create their own 3D space buggies.
