3 teams of 24 children from Year 5 took part in the Year 5/6 cricket tournament just before half term. They all bowled, batted and fielded and had a great day at The Glebe with a picnic lunch in the middle.


We learned about Guru Har Gobind in RE. Inspired by the story of how he used his cloak to help people, we created our own designs for a new cloak for him. We made stampers from unwanted rubbish. It was lots of fun.


We spent another exciting day at Nissan, learning about technology and engineering. We tried out some of the skills needed to build a car, and met some very clever robots.


Nissan hosted another fantastic day inspiring the children with a whole range of amazing jobs and future ideas for work. We enjoyed Lego car challenges, a tour round the training centre and seeing robots at work!  To finish we had a go at some of the production line skills needed too.


The children wrote short planet based poems and using percussion instruments (including their bodies) created a short piece of accompanying music to play along to their poem.  The aim was to ensure the sound and rhythm matched the mood of their poem and planet.  Their composition was then recited
