What a fantastic day it was! The sun shone, there was lots to do, lots to eat and an excellent turnout. A big thank you to the PTA for organising the event and also to everyone who helped and supported the event.
We had 2 GB athletes visit yesterday. The athletes were Marilyn Okoro (800m and 4x400m relay) and Richard Buck (400m) British track and field athletes, both have represented GB in the Commonwealth, Olympics and World Championships. The day was very inspiring starting off with an assembly to get to know the athletes stories and then the children enjoyed a training session with the athletes.
On Friday 20th April, 10 Year 4 children took part in a football tournament. They all proudly represented the school showing great team spirit and great stickability. It was wonderful to see them support each other and enjoy the whole experience of taking part in a sporting competition representing the school.
Year 3 children took part in a fantastic Roman Workshop today, which provided a wealth of facts and knowledge to help contribute to their new topic “The Romans.”
Year 3 finished their Spring Term topic, Stones & Bones with a trip to the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences where the children were able to see up to two million fossils, minerals and rocks – lucky enough to even handle some of these ancient artefacts.
A trip to the nearby Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology also meant the children could examine local antiquities and archaeological artefacts from around the world – this was one trip that really ‘rocked!’
Throughout today each class has taken part in a fitness challenge including running or walking around a circuit for a set period of time. The children enjoyed dressing in their sports clothes. Thank you for the donations of 50p for this worthwhile charity. We will let you know how much money we raised as soon as it is all counted up.
