GB Athlete

Today (14.2.19) we were joined by Brandon Mingeli a 100m GB sprinter. He spoke to the children about his athletic career, his background and what motivates him to keep training.

He has a race time of 10.58 which ranks him 2nd fastest in the UK.


GB Athlete Visit!

We have a very important guest visiting the children on Thursday 14th February to deliver an assembly to the whole school and some workshops to classes individually. Prior to the event the children will take part in a sponsored walk, jog or run around the playground, each class will be given 20 minutes in order to see how many laps they can complete. Every child recieved a sponsorship form and they have been ask to collect some sponsors for this event. The money that the children raise will go towards supporting the GB athlete that visits us and will go towards buying new equipment for the school. I am very excited to welcome our guest in a few weeks and I hope the children will have a very inspiring day! Thank you for your support – Miss Baker


In English this term we are looking at a visual clip called Ruin, this is an eight minute clip set in a fictional, overgrown, isolated envrionment. During this clip the children will create their own discussion text about the clip, in their discussion text they will use personification, adverbs and modal verbs, these have been our GPS focuses so far this term. They will also include for and against arguments and conjunctive adverbs to balance their arguments.


During our Topic ‘Properties and Changes of Materials’ the children experimented with mixing solids and liquids together to create a gas. The children used white vinegar, malt vinegar, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and a vitamin tablet. We observed the reactions between these substances.
