Awesome Achievements - Rosa Parks

As part of their home learning, the Year 5/6 children have been working hard on a self-directed study about an 'Awesome Achievement' from black history. Sam chose to complete his study on Rosa Parks and has put together a fantastic presentation about her 'Awesome Achievements'. It is important to remember that 'Awesome Achievements' aren't always big wins but sometimes little steps that help to make big changes over time. Great work Sam!

Awesome writing!

As well as learning all about the first moon landings, Year 5/6 have been writing some short stories based on an image of a girl running through the fields clutching an egg. Here is Joe’s short story - I love how it builds tension and is full of descriptive language. The ending is very exciting!

Well done to Mia and Phoebe M for winning Michelle Jordan's radio competition! Michelle and I absolutely loved your 'Kids News' radio show packed full of comedy, news and weather!

Very exciting! 

Well done to everyone that took part - your radio shows were brilliant! It was so tricky to choose a winner.

A big thank you to Michelle and her teams at BBC Radio Berkshire and Oxford for setting such an exciting challenge and for all their hard work behind the scenes!

FS and KS1 Stay at Home Sports Day

Well done to all of the FS and KS1 children that took part in our 'Stay at Home Sports Day!' We are really disappointed that we couldn't host our usual exciting event, but it was lovely to see photos of so many children participating in their own home sports day instead! I was really impressed to see that some of our older children were leading activities and supporting their younger siblings too. 

Here is a selection of photos and videos of our event...

Virtual Healthy Active Lifestyles week

Well done to everyone who took part in our virtual Healthy Active Lifestyles week! It wasn't our usual fun week in school filled with exciting workshops, but I was so pleased to see all the lovely photographs of our children promoting healthy and active lifestyles. 

I loved how creative some of you were with your activities - some children went paddle boarding and kayaking with their household, others made fruit kebabs and planned healthy meals, some of you even attempted swimming lessons in your paddling pools! Brilliant! 

Here is a selection of photographs from across the week...

BBC Radio Berkshire competition

During HAL week, Michelle Jordan from BBC Radio Berkshire/Oxford set us all a challenge... to produce a 5minute radio show! Well we were overwhelmed by your fantastic audio clips and videos!
