On Tuesday, Y5 and 6 had an exciting trip to Aerospace Bristol! We all had a great time looking around the museum, going on the last Concorde and a rocket workshop! Have a look at some of the pictures from the day below.

We are starting our new topic for term 3 which is called 'Stargazers'. During this term we will be investigating planets and learning all about them. We will be taking a look at the moon and how it orbits the Earth! We had a fantastic hook event and have a very exciting trip to the Space Aeronautical Museum in Bristol later on this term!
For our hook event, we all came back to school in the evening to do some stargazing! We were so lucky that it was such a clear night and we got to see so many stars and constellations. After stargazing, we finished the evening with some hot chocolate and biscuits. Have a look at some of the pictures of the event below.

We have finished off term 2 with a Christmas party for year 5 and 6. We played lots of fun games like musical statues, pass the parcel and a team balloon race! After our party games, we enjoyed some party food and listened to some Christmas music. Take a look at some pictures of our fun filled afternoon!

We are starting a new topic this term 'A Child's War'. This topic is all about World War 2! We had a fantastic hook day. During our WW2 hook, we sang songs which were popular at the time and were used to raise moral. We practised sheltering from an air raid and read letters from evacuated children. We found out about rationing, planned a menu and even made our own butter! It was delicious! We also learned how to put bandages on wounded soldiers. We all had a great time!
Have a look below for the Jigsaw Homework for term 2 and some other parent letters that went home at the end of term 1.
We are starting this year with the topic 'Hola Mexico'. This term we will be finding out about Mexico's history, location and climate. We will also be finding out about the Day of the Dead festival and why it is celebrated. We have already had a fantastic hook day where we leant all about Mexico. We made some pinatas and maracas! We also leant a famous Mexican song called 'La Cucuracha' and had a go making our own Mexican flags. Take a look at some of the pictures below!
