We have been amazed at the high quality of the home learning projects that were brought into Year 5 last week! It is clear that the children in Year 5 have been thoroughly enjoying their topic on Space and are definitely a creative bunch! We have had 3D models of the solar system, paintings inspired by space, quizzes made on the computer about the planets, games coded on Scratch set in space and even a sewn pin cushion of the moon! Here are just a few of the submissions!

Well done to everyone who entered our marble run STEM challenge over the last 2 weeks. Children, both in school and at home as part of their home learning, have clearly had great fun finding ways to move the marble. We loved seeing the different ways you all engineered solutions to control the speed and direction of the marbles. Hopefully, you all had great fun taking part. Here are some of our favourite designs from in school and at home.
A massive thank you to everyone who has taken part in our Big Make project last week! We loved everything that was shared from musical instruments, to art and pastry! Here is a selection of some of the fantastic work from last week! Well done everyone!
A challenge was set out last week for you at home to send a picture of a blue flower to Miss. Lovelock. This could be achieved in any creative way desired - photography, painting, drawing, model, cake - the choices were endless. Every picture sent was so wonderful, we thought we would share them to spread the joy! Here are your creations!
