Click on each month to see what we have been doing in school this academic year!
Well done to our Year 5 'Speed Stackers' who won in an inter-schools competition at Neale Wade Academy on Friday 19th November! They arrived back at school with big smiles and a trophy to display in school!
Congratulations to our Year 6 Tag Rugby team who won both of their tournaments on Friday 12th November at Cromwell Community College. We are very proud of you!
Children in Years 1, 3, 4 and 5 enjoyed their Bushcraft Days on 4th and 5th November. Year 1 developed their Geography skills by exploring the field and plotting key places on a simple map. Year 3 learnt about how Stone Age families lit fires to cook their food as part of their History theme . Years 4 and 5 were given the opportunity to use maps and follow compass points. Despite the rainy weather on Thursday the children had a fantastic time. The classes that visited on Friday had a beautiful autumnal day to explore our outdoor learning environment!
Thank you to everyone who donated food items for Harvest Festival!
Lots of our Year 6 parents and children attended a SATs meeting after school on 5th October to discuss the work the children would do in school during the coming year and the expectations of homework for this.
Year 6 took a trip to Duxford Imperial War Museum as part of their World War II theme. They went to the AirSpace Centre, Land Warfare building, American War Museum, Air and Sea building, Battle of Britain centre and the Conservation in Action centre. They also spent time looking at the different tanks and vehicles used from World War I to now. They also enjoyed learning about D Day and seeing the 'Operations Room' used during the Battle of Britain.
Year 1 had a fantastic time at their Teddy Bears Picnic. They brought their teddies in from home and talked about why they were special. They enjoyed singing and dancing to the Teddy Bears Picnic song. They made teddy bear ears to wear and decorated biscuits to eat.
During September we held Phonics Meetings for parents in Year 1 and Year 2. There was lots of information on display about phonics teaching in school and how to support their children at home.
Year 3 visited Wicken Fen as part of their Geography theme this term ‘How have rivers shaped Fenland?’. This gave them invaluable hands-on experience and further their understanding of our local area.
Year 2 enjoyed their Wisbech Town Trail on 21st September. They learned lots of interesting facts about the Church, such as the importance of stained glass windows. The children were fascinated to see all the different buildings in our town. They compared old buildings (such as Wisbech Castle) and modern buildings (such as the Library) and explored the Market Place. Year 2 also visited Peterborough Cathedral as part of their themed work for this half term.
In aid of MacMillan Cancer Support, we held a Coffee Morning at Nene and sold cakes at playtime at Ramnoth. We sold the remaining cakes at the end of the day and raised £192 for this very worthwhile charity. Thank you all very much!
