Year 5 were invited to a German Breakfast Experience morning at Leesbrook Community Sports College in January. The year 9 students and teaching staff there hosted the event, which included a range of German language activities, and the opportunity to taste a typical German breakfast. Our students, (and staff!) greatly enjoyed their experience, and would like to thank Leesbrook for inviting them.

Our Book Fair and café event was a great success this year! We invited the whole school and their parents and carers to come for a browse of the fabulous books on offer and also to take part in a range of guided reading activities whilst enjoying a hot drink and some of our cook’s famous biscuits. Thank you everyone for an impressive turn out. Because of the impressive amount of book sales, our school were rewarded a staggering £700 to spend on books in school. Well done everbody!

23 Children from Year 5 have successfully completed their Level 2 Cycle Training with Cycle Derby. This included completing a theory test and a practical test out on the local roads.
Year 3 have been measuring and comparing different units of measure. We had to answer true or false questions about different measures then try to find the correct answers.
As part of our ICT topic, we have been working on giving and using directions using different types of directional language. We began by using a map and a car and had to use different directional language to direct our partner to a chosen part of the map. This lesson was in preparation for our ICT Textese Turtle topic where we have had to direct the Turtle using different directional language to make a variety of different shapes and patterns.
