Easter Egg Hunts and Balloon Race
The early Easter this year has given the school the opportunity for some fun activities, but it would not be complete without the traditional Easter Egg Hunt and Balloon Race.
Different clues were placed around the dell and field for all the classes. It was lovely to see Parents and Grandparents joining in the fun. A special mention to the many Year 6 children who supported some of the younger children.
After lunch everyone went out onto the field to release the many coloured balloons for our balloon race. I wonder how far the winner will drift this year?

All of the Home Learning models that have come in so far have been fantastic.
We have had various explosions and eruptions taking place from a diverse range of volcanoes
Some were more destructive than others and needed to be demonstrated outside of our new classroom. Shooting molten rock, bubbling lava, gases and ash clouds into the air.
Year 5 have produced some wonderful maths through art. They have been very creative in lessons. In their last activity, they explored parabolic curves. The children had to follow a pattern and join selected dots to create their design.
Year 5 have produced some amazing work as part of their Home Learning grid this half term – well done – you should be very proud!
The children have been busy designing, making, drawing, writing, researching and even baking! We have certainly enjoyed tasting the delights made. Keep up the good work Year 5!
On Wednedsay 12th March, Year 5 took part in a Tag Rugby Workshop. They had great fun and really improved their skills. Challenge Sports told Miss Esom what a polite and hard-working class Year 5 had been – well done children!
On Tuesday 19th November, the Happy Puzzle Company will be visiting our school to work with all the children. Children from Reception to Year 6 will take part in a Puzzle Challenge Day. Each year group will participate in problem solving and thinking skills activities which will also involve team building and cooperation.
There will also be a parent and family session after school between 3.40-5.10pm. You are warmly invited to attend. During this time, the company will have their Puzzle Shop open so that you can purchase items (perhaps even potential Christmas presents!) if you wish.
Many thanks to FOMs who have funded the majority of this event which will be a fabulous learning experience for the children.
I hope to see many of you there.
A big thank you to those parents who attended the workshop yesterday evening. I hope that you found it helpful.
Look out for further events! Please do tell us if there is specfic areas you would like us to cover.
