Last week, Class 12 all gained a Cultural Experience Pledge by going on a school trip to Ulley Resevoir. We had great fun canoeing, kayaking and jumping in the water!

On Friday 1st October, Y5 enjoyed a wonderfully active morning at Ulley Reservoir where the children took part in kayaking and sailing. All of the children behaved beautifully and supported each other. We all had a very wet, but great time.

Year 5 enjoyed being able to work in groups again to learn about the human and physical features of Africa.
Children in Class 13 have been practicing their clay skills in preparation for making a clay tile featuring a clay invertebrate.

Year 5 continued their art project looking at life like qualities and real life proportions and used clay to create a habitat tile for their clay invertebrate.

Class 5 have been learning how to build strong dens and structures this week with our new den making kit. They joined material carefully to the crates with clips and worked as a great team to build some fantastic lion dens!
