Our Topic this term is
'Time Traveller'

Tick, tock, tick,tock... the hands o the clock never stop. From the moment we are born, from toddler to teen, middle age to elderly, time stops for no man.

Find out what happens to our bodies and brains as we grow older, and how do we cope with these changes.

How long does a human baby take to grow inside the womb? Does it take longer than an elephant calf? Or a kitten?

Take a good look at yourself... How has your face changed since you were a baby and how will it change as you grow older? Can you photograph it, change it, age it?

And what would happen if the clock struck 13? In 'Tom's Midnight Garden', he travels to the past. What an adventure! Imagine you could time travel too: where would you go and what would you like to see/ Will you head back to your past or into your future? You decide.

Tick, tock, tick, tock... the hands on the clock never stop!

Moving Up Day

It was that time of year again, where the children moved up into their new classes for the day, ready for September.

The children played a range of games, getting to know one another. Class bingo and also writing three sentences, two facts and one made up, for the other children to guess were personal favourites!

It was a lovely morning!



GPJ Competition

On Tuesday, children from Year 5 and 6 took part in the famous GPJ competition.

The children had to take part in 4 Sports consisting of: end ball, quick cricket, standing long jump and a relay race. The children gave a good account of themselves finishing 6th overall.

They also managed to record the highest quick cricket score, much to the delight of the children! Well done all
