Year 5 Viking Adventures

Year 5 were treated to a lesson delivered by their students on the myths and legends and gods and religion the vikings believed in.
The group produced their own PowerPoint presentation and then gave the rest of the class time to draw and find out facts about the three main gods.

Having designed their own Viking shields in DT and crafted their own Viking helmets in art, 5 Yellow went around the school raiding various classrooms for goods, including holding Mr Bolton and Miss Gladys to ransom and making off with a few bags of sweets they plundered from the headmaster’s draw.’


Early Years Fruit-full Thank You

Early Years children gathered on Thursday in order to say a special thank you to our workers who have transformed the Early Years playground from a plain site into an amazing and colourful play area. The current playground is enjoyed by children and teachers alike. The photos of the site both before and after works were completed were shown, and the children chose healthy baskets of fruit to express their gratitude to the team of fantastic workers. Thank you so much for the amazing work, and well done children for opting for such a healthy present.
