We had a very informative vist from two local Magistrates today. They explained to the children how the legal system works in our country and helped them all to understand what it means to be a good citizen. The children also found out about the implications of having a criminal record and why it is important to make sensible decisions and not be negatively influenced by others.
We have enjoyed a fantastic morning at Pocket Park, taking in the beauty of late summer, looking at reflections in the water and having a game of rounders! We are looking forward to getting back to school and creating some art work based on our time there.
Year 5 and 6 are delighted to announce that we have raised over £160 in our Big Bake cake sale. The children decided what they wanted to make in their groups and then spent time making their goods and advertising the cake sale around the school.
Hunts School Sport Partnership gave us two of their coaches for the morning to do some team building together. It was great to see the children growing in their skills, including communication, planning ahead and evaluating their performance.
At the start of this term in English we have been looking at the collective nouns for different groups of animals based on the book A Drove of Bullocks. The children have been writing their own narrative descriptions of animals and have begun to research animals of their choice to create their own book as a class.
