A special visitor to Year R
Today we had a visit form our local PCSO, PC Rutter.  He came in to tell us about how he helps People. 


PC Rutter explained that he made sure people were safe on the road and toured the local area to ensure that we are all safe.  He showed us all the equipment he wore and carried.


We had the opportunity to have a close look and touch and even tried on his hat.

 PC Rutter explained that he is able to use sign language and he uses this to communicate with people who are unable to hear.  He wears a special badge to identify this skill.


 PC Rutter then helped us to check our outside area was safe.  He made lots of notes in his notebook.


PC Rutter explained that the Police use cars, bikes, motorbikes, horses, boats and vans to get around.  Hopefully he will be able to bring his car to school when the building work has finished so that we can get inside.

Thank you PCSO Rutter, we learnt so much.

Investigating Chocolate

Which one is safest in my pocket?
Wispa? Twirl? Dairy Milk?

Mrs Warland challenged us to investigate how chocolate melts.  We all know that chocolate melts when exposed to heat even if it is just the warmth in our pockets!  

But does all chocolate melt the same?
We set about investigating with some very surprising results.
Why not ask us what happened.

Bear Grylls better watch out!


Great fun was had by all in Year 5 this week as we turned murky water clear with a home-made filter.

Watch out in our class assembly as we detail how we did this!

Rock and Roll in Years 3 and 4!

Yesterday, Stone Age fever took over Years 3 and 4 as we explored what it would have been like to live at that time. We created cave paintings on the walls and under the tables, made a fruit stew and carved Stone Age tools out of soap instead of flint! Take a look at some of the fun we got up to:

It's been a super start to our Rock and Roll topic and we're very excited to learn more about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age this term.
