The rain held off on Friday afternoon and year 5 enjoyed a lovely trip around the village. They visited the war memorial and church in preparation for their first History topic
Year 5 children at school today took part in a 'big' art activity where they recreated Van Gogh's 'Starry Night' using mixed media. They learnt about Van Gogh's life and looked at some of his famous works of art.
Then the children took one section of the painting and made it their own!
Haven't they done a fantastic job?

Last week we launched our exciting South Africa research project in English. Remember, don't wait to start and talk to your teacher if you're not sure what to do.
It was great to meet so many of you on Friday and I know that the children enjoyed you being there. I understand that they went on to have a fantastic evening, participating in the many exciting events that their teachers had organised for them and getting to know one another better. I’m sure I can speak on behalf of you all in saying a huge thank you to the teachers, kitchen staff and PTA members whose dedication and efforts make events like this possible. The positive feedback received, both verbally and in the feedback book that was circulating that evening, was much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to do that.
Due to the heavy traffic the London Trip will be arriving back at school at approximately 5:00pm. Please note that due to safe guarding you will be required to collect your child from the school hall.
We have now left London and are making our way back to school. The traffic is very heavy and we will update you again later with our time of arrival back at school
Another jam packed day at the aquarium and London eye! The children were brave enough to walk across the shark tank and ride the towering heights of the London eye. A fantastic day had by all...and it’s not even over yet!
London 2nd group have enjoyed a great 1 night sleep in the hotel, followed by a lovely breakfast this morning. We have spent the morning at the Wetlands centre learning about mini beasts and having fun on the adventure playground. We are now on route to the aquarium. :) All having a great time!
Wow! What an incredible three days we have had with the first half of Year 5. The children have had a couple of fun-filled, jam-packed days with so many activities, ranging from pond dipping, to riding the London eye, to walking across a shark tank in the London Aquarium...not to mention the delicious food which has been gobbled up! The Lion King was a huge hit- with the actors and actresses, dressed in costumes, walking down the aisles directly next to us! I'm sure the children will have told you all about it and will be talking about it for many days to come. A big well done to every single child on the trip, setting such a lovely example with their kindness and manners. We had compliments from the public and staff, everywhere we went! Now time for some well deserved and much needed rest! Miss Capp.
