Team Captain and Council Elections
This week we held our annual elections and council selections to choose our School, Eco, Arts, Sports, ICT and Reading Councillors. As well as this, many Year 6 children stood for election as Team Captains, in charge of organising and supporting their teammates from Reception to Year 6. This children prepared speeches and delivered them to their team, who then voted. Many votes were extremely close and all of the speeches were fantastic. Click here to read some of their speeches.

Goodbye, Year 4/5. Hello, Year 5/6!
It has been so much fun,
I cannot believe,
That this year is done.
You are all amazing,
And what a wealth,
Of knowledge you have,
Just believe in yourselves!
We said bye to Nathan,
And to George too,
That took us down,
To a small twenty-two.
In the Autumn term,
We had Remembrance Day,
Daniel and Ryan amazed us,
With their knowledge every day!
Year 5s worked with Ali,
Animations you made,
Lucas and Cierran were so talented,
In the Beacon, work was displayed.
At Christmas we had,
The whole audience scared,
By Robbie, Morgan and Maisie,
Don’t mess with the bears!
For performing Peace Child,
In the end Anna’s baby,
Helped the two tribes reconcile!
After New Year we waited,
For Ciara and Aidan to come,
They made it in Spring,
To begin having fun.
Your class assembly was awesome,
The show you did steal,
Stephen strutted his stuff,
In his dress and high heels!
Never off Lexia,
Ethan’s done it all,
Amy’s art was wonderful,
With her green screen waterfall!
The times table game,
Might get you a sticker,
But you’ll have to beat Annie,
She is so much quicker!
James is catching up,
Competitive they are,
But most improved is Liam,
On TT Rockstars!
With tractor facts galore,
Bradley has his nose in a book,
And have you read his stories,
If not, take a look!
Look after the CDC,
Ellie and Josh,
Keep it clean and tidy!
Y5s went to York,
Tom’s first trip away,
We had so much fun,
Kallie wanted to stay!
Dark skies with year 4,
Showed us we are all star dust,
To put on a great performance,
Martha and Ella I could trust!
Oliver’s dairy cows,
Supplied us all with ice cream,
After this year’s Let’s Celebrate
It was like a dream!
Thank you for the pictures,
The presents and the cards,
But the best gift of all,
Is knowing you are all stars!
Have a great summer!
Love, Miss Conroy x
Watercolour and Sketching Club
What wonderful, detailed work done in an after school club!
Rowan class planted their own potatoes. Finally, they were ready for harvesting. Look how many we grew!
We have been writing Haiku poems about the quiet area ☀️🌳🌷
Suspense Story Writing
Wow! This child is so inspired by our story, Room 13, they are writing their own story at home! All that effort certainly deserves... a head teacher’s award! 🏅👻
The Mist Part One
One night, I was on my regular 10pm dog run when I heard a noise. Not a pleasant or familiar noise, but something drew me to it... It got louder and louder.
I ended up in a gloomy, dark forest. After 3 minutes of running, I could see some greeny-blue mist. The mist got closer and closer, the floor rose like a ghost and BANG...
The floor exploded just above my head!
Next thing I knew, I was in a pit of mist. My dog Floss, a collie, howled like mad!

Year 5 took part in STEM activities based around the science topic Materials and their Properties. They took part in mini workshops about: liquid density, electricity, magnetism, friction and filtration.

500 Words 2019 Feb 2019
Rowan class watched BBC’s live lesson today to launch 500 words! Here, children are exploring different characters and settings and thinking about what type of stories can be created for different genres! We had princesses stuck in Egypt, a fireman trying to put out an underwater fire and pirates solving a parrot murder mystery!
Which materials make the best insulators?
Year 5 investigated which materials would be most suitable to build a den for a vole to hibernate in our quiet area.
Wet Playtime Readers
Well done to boys in Rowan class for spending their wet playtime reading to Year 1!

Ian Brealey visited the school to show us everyone can draw! The children were all really pleased with the progress they made with their drawings and they learned some really useful techniques. Ian is a great role model and very inspirational.

Varjak Paw Poetry May 2018
Varjak Paw has bravely ventured out of the Contessa's house and into the Outside. Suddenly, huge, metal monsters whizz past him... Could they be dogs?
Rowan have enjoyed writing list poems with powerful, emotive language to describe what Varjak saw and how he felt.
