Year 6 have had their first week of mindful drumming. The ‘Positive Drumming Project’ is going to be visiting Year 6 for ten weeks and teaching them about how to manage their feelings and keep calm in times of stress. They had the opportunity to develop breathing techniques and practice creating rhythms along with chants. The year group are very excited for Addy (the drumming teacher) to come back next week.

During Science Week, Year 6 were lucky to have a visit from an engineer who works for Primary Engineers. The children were tasked with designing an electrically powered vehicle that will be able to move in a straight line forwards and in reverse.
The children loved the opportunity to use woodwork skills in order to create a car chassis and set of axles. Their problem solving skills were challenged when they were told they could not glue the four main pieces of wood to create the chassis but were amazed to discover that some well placed triangular pieces of card were enough to create a sturdy base!
They are now eagerly anticipating finishing their creations.
Our fantastic new Sports Ambassadors participated in the Year 5 and 6 Dodgeball Festival at Shenley Brook End Secondary School this week.
The children battled well, came up with some great tactics and dodged lots of balls! The children did amazingly well and came third overall! We are so proud of you!
Thank you to the staff and parents who came and supported. We definitely had the best cheerleading squad!
