Sincere thanks to everyone. We really do appreciate all of your support.

Year 5 Spooky Snacks

A big thank you to the children and parents who supported Class 5's Spooky Snacks Stall at the end of school today. The children in Class 5 have worked incredibly hard to prepare and make the food and use their knowledge and understanding of money to sell their products. Please check out the Year 5 gallery to see fantastic pictures of our terrific treats: Frankenstein angel delight, boo-nanas, Dracula denture, apple owls and doughnut and pretzel spiders. Well done Year 5!

Year 5 pupils were given the opportunity to participate in a Bikeability course, the course enabled children to learn about road safety and they had to apply this knowledge to cycling around the local area under the supervision of trained instructors. Children completed a 4-day course and at the end of the course they were assessed by the instructors and told if they had passed the programme. The majority of the children did! Therefore, today in assembly Mr Steggall handed out bikability certificates to every child in Class 5 because each pupil had got involved with the course. Well done Year 5 this is a super achievement and the instructors were very impressed with you. What a great scheme to be part of!

Year 5 visit to Ironbridge

Year 5 enjoyed a fantastic day, exploring the Victorian town -  Blists Hill at Ironbridge. We dressed in Victorian costumes and participated in a Victorian school session, where we wrote on slates, were told off for putting elbows on the desk and even had to have our hands inspected!  After lunch we split up into small groups to explore the Victorian shops and businesses. Some of the places we visited included: a chemist, a bank, a wood-shop, a cottage and a locksmith. Of course we had to stop at the sweet shop too! We will do lots of follow-up work about our visit to Ironbridge in class, especially now we have experienced a little bit of what life was like for Victorian children. Here are some photos of our visit (please see the Year 5 class page for more photos):
