Athletics competition

This morning we took part in the CM sports athletics competition to show our skills.

The colours were yellow, blue, red  and green. We had lots of fun doing the activities: long run, sprinting, javelin and long jump. They will add up to a score of  how many points over the year. The winning colour team will get a trophy. It was run by CM SPORTS coaches Nick, Jazz, Theo and Matt. We all tried our hardest because every point earned counts. We think it will be a very close score as all the teams are are great at sports and really competitive. However, it is about taking part and enjoying it that counts.

A day with a Viking!


Year 4 had an amazing day today with Sig the Viking. The day started with a quiz, finding out information from boards around the classroom. Then we sat around the campfire and  Sig showed some Viking objects they used in daily life. After break, we played the board game ‘Fox and Geese’ which was really fun but hard to win as the geese. The best part of the day was the afternoon where Sig showed lots of weapons and we had spear wrestles in pairs to show off our strength!

Viking assembly

Beech class were amazing in their class assembly today, presenting their learning about the Vikings from this term. They have been very busy in topic lessons and had lots to share! Mrs Attree and Miss Duncan are very impressed with how hard the children worked and how loudly and clearly the children spoke in front of an audience. Their confidence has really improved over the year.  Well done!

Viking bean cakes

Beech class had a fantastic morning with Mrs Attree and Mrs Bray making the Viking bean cakes. There was lots of careful chopping using our skills practiced last week, and accurately measuring to make sure the recipe was correct, using our maths skills.

We tried them this afternoon but it was a mixed reaction, with people either loving or hating them!

School Grounds Day

It was third time lucky with the weather for School Grounds Day!

We had a lovely afternoon painting flower pots to grow our own vegetables in. We have either chilli or pepper seeds and look forward to seeing how they grow over the rest of the term.

We then went to clear the flower beds and plant flowers and vegetable seeds.

Thank you very much to everyone who came to help!
