Book Swap & Happiness

by Miss Addison

This term, the children in 5PA have been working with a volunteer from a charity called Global Action Plan on a project which they feel is important to them. 

Some of the children created the Star Readers group to promote reading for pleasure. This afternoon, this group held a book swap event for all of the children in Year 5 and Year 6.

Every child got the chance to pick a book to take home and keep! It was fantastic to see so much excitement and talk about reading! 

Here is a small selection of the photos from the event: 

Another group from 5PA called Diamond Happiness create compliment cards to help spread happiness in school.

They designed and made these cards before handing them out at the book swap event!

It was a fantastic afternoon and so lovely to see everyone in Year 5 and Year 6 happy and smiling.

Jodrell Bank Trip!

by Miss Kenwell

On Wednesday, Year 5 went on a fantastic trip to Jodrell Bank.  During our visit we got to take part in a lot of different activities all about space!

First the children explored some of the different interactive exhibitions. They were able to investigate the different planets in our solar system, explore how the telescope at Jodrell Bank works and even tried on some spy outfits.

We were also lucky enough to take part in a fantastic science show all about physics which included some really fun experiments such as creating a fire tornado, launching a super speedy bottle rocket and using an infa-red camera!

Finally, the chidlren got to visit the incredible Space Dome. In this huge cinema room we were taken on a journey through space to look at the different constellations. We explored where they got their names from in Ancient Greece and even got to travel to Saturn.

Have a look at the pictures to see what else we got up to!
