Red Nose Day
On Friday, we took part in raising money for Red Nose Day. We all came to school dressed in our red sporting clothes and took part in a skip into spring event. The Sports Leaders did an amazing job of organising and delivering a range of skipping games. The sports leaders gave out certificates to the children who demonstrated our Sainsburys Values. Those lucky children then got to take on the teachers. Who could skip the longest, the children or the teachers? Well done to the children, who came out on top!
Well done to everyone, we loved seeing your determination in our skipping events.
Thank you to everyone for their kind donations.
We have enjoyed learning all about Fairtrade fortnight in school. Each class has learnt about an important aspects within their PSHCE lessons. To celebrate the end of Fairtrade fortnight the Rights Respecting Champions organised and held a Fairtrade tuck shop.
We hope you all enjoyed your goodies!

Women in Science
In school we have enjoyed learning all about significant women who helped change the face of Science.
Class 1 learned about the first woman who went into Space! It was so interesting and very inspiring 🙂
We learnt all about Caroline Haslett.
Caroline Haslett was an engineer (someone who makes or works with machines and other mechanical equipment).
She wanted more women to be scientists and engineers and she believed that electricity could change women’s lives for the better and free them from exhausting housework. Caroline proved that women could do technical jobs just as well as men and could have careers in new fields of work.
Look at our amazing work ….
Class 3 looked at Marie Curie, who researched radioactivity and found a cure for cancer.
We looked at her amazing achievements and how she has made such a huge difference. We learned that she was the first woman to to win a Noble Prize and each made a PowerPoint to show what we had found out.
In Class 4, we looked at Ruth Benerito and her amazing invention of wrinkle-free cotton! She also created this cotton to make it stain and fire proof, making this cotton material ideal for using in uniforms of doctors and firefighters! Her work helped the cotton farmers continue to make money and has made our lives a lot easier today!
We worked in our groups to present what we found out about Ruth before creating some fact files on her.
