22/6/2021 - Art - Felting our seascapes!

17/6/2021 Cojo mission to build a boat! Sounds easy? Each team could only study and memorise a picture of the build for 10 seconds before having to create their own version from memory. Each team did amazingly well and only one person fell overboard so another successful mission under our belt!

9/6/2021 - Amazing art, in the style of JMW Turner. Find more information here:

8/6/2021 - We had an amazing PE lesson today, playing rounders with Miss Naylor. Each team demonstrated excellent teamwork and great communication, shouting for the ball when they could predict being able to tap someone out on their post. Batting, bowling and fielding skills were fantastic and I was extremely proud that everyone remained positive and continued to cheer on their team, even when they had been caught or tapped out. What a perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon! Well done lovely Eagles!

7/6/2021 - After sending letters back in March to our 'Dear New Friends' as part of the Literacy Trust's intiative to encourage the young generation to write and combat loneliness in the older generation, we were absolutely delighted to receive our replies today!

17.05.21 The International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia

Co-Jo Mission: ‘99% of success is built on failure.’ The team’s new found building skills have been noticed by some of the world’s greatest architects in France, where the Eiffel tower has just been completed. In this mission, teams must build their own freestanding super-tower to rival this great European building.

25.03.21 Road Safety Workshop

19.03.21 Red Nose Day

11/3/2021 Our first CoJo mission of the new 'Nellie Bly' unit. We had to study a world map and try to recreate it on the hall floor with the resources we had available! Good teamwork and communication were essential!

11/3/2021 - Q&A with Sian the scientist! We asked some very thoughtful questions and got some very interesting answers!

9/3/2021 - We all absolutely love our PE lessons with Miss Naylor. Today we did fitness and dodgeball!

Bikeability 5th and 6th November 2020

Well done to all of the Year 5 and 6 children who completed this two day training. I'm pleased to say that everyone who completed both days all passed! Excellent news!!
13/10/2020 DT- Making our own 'on the go' products! 

8/10/2020 - Self and peer editing

I have been really impressed this week with the Year 6 work in English. We have planned a persuasive letter to Harvey, one of our book characters, to convince him to believe in the power of Origami Yoda. The children have planned, written and edited their own and each other's work, making sure it gets better and better each time. Everyone has shown great communication skills, teamwork and lots of care to help each other make more and more progress in their work - well done Year 6!! winkyesheart

9/9/2020 British Values - Democracy


Today we discussed the meaning of the word democracy: the right for all of us to have our voices heard and contribute our opinions in order to make a collective decision. Well done Eagles for showing such maturity today with your thoughtful consideration when voting for our School Council members and Anti-Bullying representative. I was extremely impressed with the number of people who put themselves forward for the positions, showing that you really care about our school community and want to make a positive contribution. The winners will be revealed before the end of the week, so watch this space!

Record Breakers!

We had a fabulous first Geography lesson today, learning about Bear Grylls and Sir Ranulph Fiennes. We learnt that they have both broken world records so we attempted to break the world record for the longest long jump, currently held by Mike Powell, who jumped a whopping 8.95m in 1991! Sadly, none of us came anywhere near but we had a fabulous time trying! In the words of Sir Ranulph Fiennes though, we learnt that 'The key is to learn from your failures and then keep going!' which is the resilience character trait that we have been learning about. We also learnt the importance of teamwork during dangerous expeditions, being safe in the knowledge that you can rely on your team to stay together and never let you down. We tried sprinting to see if we could all keep up, then tried jogging to prove the truth in the our first Co-Jo mission title' If you go fast, you should go alone. If you want to go far, you should go together.'

Documentary making

Eagles class showed some fabulous teamwork skills, working in groups to write, then perform and film their own mini documentaries about how mountains are formed. 


We have all really enjoyed Athletics with Miss Naylor this half term. Well done to Lucas for achieving an 'ICP Sport Star' award! 

Let's Do The Twist!

While reading our book 'The Strange Case of Origami Yoda', we discovered that most of the children had no idea what 'The Twist' was! They certainly do now, even if some were too reserved to join in!

Design Technology - Spring Rolls (yummy!!)

The children have really looked forward to working with Mrs Grundy every Wednesday afternoon. This week they made some very professional looking Spring Rolls that were absolutely delicious, so I'm told. Can you believe, not one of them thought to save poor old Mrs Mee one of their wonderful creations!

Having recently studied 'The Eagle' by Alfred Lord Tennyson, and currently learning about mountains, mountain habitats and wildlife, we took the opportunity today, to write our own poems about the lammergeyer, after researching it yesterday. I saw some impressive vocabulary and wonderful imagery.

5.10.2020 - Geography

Eagles had great fun cutting and drawing around potatoes! We were in fact learning about how the height of land is shown on a map using contour lines.
