Black History Month


During Black History Month, Year 5 have been learning about influential Black Britons during their daily reading lessons. Lots of interesting questions have been raised and discussions have taken place as to how and why these people have been influential and the legacy they have had on future generations.



PROTECTIVE BEHAVIOURS (week beginning 19th October)


This week, all classes have been learning about 'Protective Behaviours' as part of our PSHE. If you would like to find out more about what we are learning, please take a look at the links below.

We have been researching layers of the rainforest and have created some brilliant non chronological reports (double page spreads). We hope you enjoy reading them just as much as we enjoyed writing them.
