It has been a very busy week for the children with the launch of their new topics. Year 6 have been learning how to survive as cavemen and have been building shelters. Year 5 have had a visit from the Space Dome which filled the hall and has left them thinking about the universe around them. Year 4 have emersed themselves in live sketching of flowers inspired by the artist Henri Rousseau. Year 3 can tell you that the human body has 206 bones as they have launched their science topic with identifying and naming these bones.

Year 2 have had a mysterious visit from Paddington Bear who left a trail of distruction with abandoned marmalade sandwiches in the classroom! Year 1 dressed as fairytale characters for the day and have produced some wonderful writing. The Reception classes have had a visit from our ‘Lollypop’ lady and have been busy designing her a new coat that had to be waterproof, reflective and warm. Our Pre-school have been enjoying their nature walks around the school grounds.

After School Clubs

This term sees the start of even more after school clubs. Please ensure you collect your child from Cascades carpark.
