Children from Year 5/6 in school this week have been working on an enterprise project. They have designed and made a new sandwich product, including designing their own fillings, creating their packaging, and recording a short television advert to advertise their products. Enjoy some of the photographs of the last moments as children made their finished products.
The children are currently enjoying their residential trip to Kingswood Stafordshire.
They are enjoying lots of activities. These include Jacob's ladder, abseiling, environmental art, quad biking and many others.
We will be adding daily updates and lots of pictures to our Twitter feed and Facebook pages. Please follow the link below to see them.
On the last afternoon of the half term, the Year 5/6 classes opened their doors to welcome family and friends to our Crime & Punishment museums. The children worked on displays of information about crimes and their punishments throughout British history. They shared their knowledge with our guests,politely explaining their ideas and educating our guests on the gruesome events of the past.
During this half term, our first theme will be Crime and Punishment. During this unit we will be finding out about crimes - and the punishments that were issued for them - throughout history, from Roman times right up to today. At the beginning of term, we will be using an online world to explore a bank robbery in the Wild West, and using the witnesses evidence to write a newspaper.
Later in the term we will look at how the justice system has changed since the Romans came to Britain, as well as finding out about the 10 key periods of History:
Children in Year 5/6 got the new academic year quickly underway as four officers from Nottinghamshire Police joined us for the day. As part of our Crime and Punishment theme we will be looking at crime and punishment throughout history, so we started by finding out all about modern-day policing. Lloyd, Nick, Alex and Peter from the Nottinghamshire force showed us all about police vehicles, the resources individual officers use, and the teams involved in policing major public order events from football matches to riots.
What a fantastic week - in the final week of term, the Year 5/6 children put on an amazing performance of The Lion King for parents and children to enjoy. There was fantastic singing, great acting, drumming, and even a dew dance moves. A marvellous end to the year.
We've had a busy and great sporting year.
For those who missed it or those who want to watch again, please enjoy this video about the year we have had in sport!
