We enjoyed dressing up as our favouorite characters for World Book Day.
Year 5 and 6 have been designing and making Anderson Shelters as part of their DT this half term. They have learnt how to cut wood accurately, use nails, screws and drills as well as preparing wood for joining. The children have had great fun designing a prototype model of their shelter before making them with wood and corrugated cardboard in a small group. We are looking forward to seeing the final product. Well done Class 5!

As part of their science topic, the children in class 4 investigated the colour of light using prisms and found that what we see as white light is actually made up of all the colours of the rainbow. The children then completed a colour wheel, using these colours, to see if they could make white light. Once they had practised the technique, they were happy to see that their experiment worked and had great fun at the same time.
On Thursday 14th February, the choir, along with five other primary schools, took part in a singing festival at Hetton Methodist Church. For many of the children it was the first time they had performed and they all had a great time. The choir sang An Interwoven Tapestry, all about the adventures you can have when reading books. They also sang Wills Wonderful Words which tells the amazing story of William Wordsworth and how really cool his work is.
All the schools sang two songs from The Greatest Showman, A Million Dreams and This Is Me. Well done to everyone who took part-it was a lovely afternoon and thank you to all who came and supported the children.
