Today the children in KS2 took part in some skateboarding workshops. The workshops proved very successful and the children thoroughly enjoyed learning how to skateboard. It is another great way to get our children active and achieving their 60 active minutes per day. 
A huge thank you to Cosmo for running the workshops - the children are already asking when the next workshop will be!

Survival Snacks

Year 5/6 have started looking at their next topic 'Natural Disasters'. In DT the children planned, made and evaluated their own survival snack. The snack had to be: long lasting, tasty, nutritious and energy boosting. Once the snacks were made, the children were able to taste each others snacks and rate them against the brief. Mrs McSweeney then came in to taste judge the finalists in true 'Bake Off' style!

Odd Socks Day

What a fabulous array of Odd Socks we had in school today! This is a day to celebrate the fact that we are all unique. It is a key part of Anti Bullying Week.
Here are some of the year 5/6 Odd socks on display in the hall during their Active 30 session.
