Year 5 | Jodrell Bank Trip

by Miss Kenwell

On Tuesday, Year 5 went on an amazing trip to Jodrell Bank to support our space topic in science.  The children were able to explore a number of different exhibits in the Planet and Space Pavillion where they learned about black holes, our solar system and even how Jodrell Bank was used during the Second World War.

Year 5 also spent some time in the Space Dome where they were given a talk about our solar system and looked at all of the different constellations in our solar system - they had fun trying to guess which animals the different constellations looked like!  They travelled to Saturn and Mars to explore the planets and looked at how the movement of the Earth affects day and night.

Finally, the children explored the outside area and investigated the 'Whispering Telescopes' and were able to watch the giant telescope move along the train tracks.

Have a look at the pictures below to see what the chidlren got up to!

Reception | An awesome autumn!

by Miss Campbell and Mrs Chatterton

This term has been so amazing. Filled with lots of learning and an opportunity for our children to showcase their talents. In our class, our school's ethos of 'All different, all achieving'  permeates the classroom environment. We are a rights respecting school and the children have a good understanding that they have a right to: learn, rest, play, be healthy and celebrate who they are.
