Welcome to Year 5 & 6!
We are made up of 23 pupils and our teacher Mr Mark White.
What a fantastic way to end last week, with our bakery sale for Children in Need! We had a great time making our smarties cookies on Thursday, and they went down well at the sale, so thank you for all of your donations!
We also had a great trip to Warwick Castle on Monday, with all of the children enjoying learning about the history of the castle and the battles fought. We had an excellent workshop looking at forces, in which the children were able to make paper aeroplanes and see how aerodynamic they were, before heading over to see the huge trebuchet and learn how it works. Unfortunately it is not currently safe to show a demonstration, but the children used their imagination well to understand how the mechanics worked!
The great trebuchet!

We will use our class page to keep you updated on activities and news throughout the school year…so watch this space!
