We were thrilled to hear that one of our pupils was a winner in a competition from the author Victoria Williamson. Earlier this year, inspired by the character in her book ‘The Boy with the Butterfly Mind’, Victoria asked children to create their own weird and wonderful sandwich recipes. Jacob created the ‘Flutterby Butterfly Sandwich Snack’ and has been chosen to be included in a special sandwich recipe book. Well done Jacob, we are all very proud of you.
Children from year five started working on their Level 2 for Bikeability this week. The training involves going out and learning how to ride bikes safely on the roads near school.

Last week year five had the pleasure of working with John Kefala-Kerr , a composer. We used a range of resources to make music that could accompany detective fiction; having the focus word ‘mystery’ helped a lot. Some of the resources we used included: cornflakes, bubble wrap and plastic bags. We thought about the tone, pitch and pace of the sounds that we made and worked in groups to compose a range of sounds. Some of our sounds will be sued in the new exhibition at The Word. We can’t wait to visit to see if we can recognise our sounds.
Our first football match was awesome! Our team did really well and Kayden even did a backflip! The other teams were really good. We may have lost both matches, 1-0 & 2-0, but we tried our very best. The training was also intense, but we worked very hard! We are looking forward to the next matchday.
