Pens Down Day

We all had a great day on Friday during our annual Pens Down Day. Year 1 to year 6 were mixed up into groups and experienced a range of activities, which all promoted communication and teamwork skills. Activities included orienteering, Karaoke , problem solving, drama, making music and trust games.

The Terrible Tudors

We have been busy learning about the Tudors in year 4 and doing lots of art work and DT. Have a look at our lovely clay Tudor Roses! We have also dressed ourselves as rich or poor Tudors. Can you spot any familiar faces. Coming up soon- our Tudor Portrait Gallery!


Last week Y6 went to Thornbridge. Despite the odd shower we had a fantastic time! The kids were great and even though they did get a little dirty they always had a smile on their faces.

Well done Guys!!!
