Highlights of our year so far…

We loved learning all about different countries during Cultural Diversity Week! 5LD thought the Italian food was the best in Year 5. cheeky

We can’t keep still! P.E. and Games are our favourite lessons, we’ve been learning lots of key skills. Take a look!


Our topic ‘Up, Up and Away’ really inspired us. We have researched, made and evaluated lots of aircrafts to see which is the best. 


After our trip to Techniquest, we got stuck into our project!


We’ve got lots of exciting things planned for our last half term of the year, don’t forget to check back and see what we are up to.
