Year 4 Wow Days!
On Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th May, Y4 children invited their grown ups in to help them to construct the automaton that they had designed themselves. The children's brief was to design and make an automaton with a British Values theme to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's 90th Birthday!
The May Pole
As part of our pupil's SMSC (spiritual, moral, social and cultural) values development, an assembly was held on the origins and traditions of the May Pole and festivals held on May Day. Together, we learned and sang a song about the May Pole celebrations, 'Dance on May Day'. Each year group came to the front of the assembly to dance around the May pole.
Children from KS2 competed against each other to decorate an Easter egg for their hardworking teachers!
Well done to Chyenn in Y6- the overall winner!

Eight Year 2 children were invited to join the Craft Club this term, where they practised their designing, cutting, sticking and sewing skills. They all made a hanging snowman and a standing winter tree to take home. They worked hard but also had great fun!
Year 2 Visit Tesco!
To extend our topic work on 'The Great Fire of London', Year 2 visited Tesco. We were keen to see what a modern bakery looked like and see what the bakers made.
Whilst we were there, we looked around the store and at the different foods. We also made a pizza and a fruit kebab to bring back to school.
Here are some pictures of us enjoying our trip!

Our Year 5 pupils recently had visitors to Henley Green for a WWII workshop.
The children made carrot cookies which they were then able to eat, and also made purses and sock puppets and these will be on display at the Far Gosford Christmas event which our children and families have been invited along to!
Below is part of a cookbook which has been produced with their brilliant ideas!
