5MC were able to show off their physical capabilities this week during the Year 5 and 6 Sports Day. It was fantastic to see the children showing great sportsmanship and also showing a competitive edge! They loved representing their houses and I know it was a day that the children very much enjoyed! https://vimeo.com/251753615

Today, 5GA took a walk down to the riverside to observe the different boats that travel past the school. They were surprised to find that the most common type of boat was the hotel shuttle boats. They discussed how carrying out the survey and different times may have given us different results. Well done 5GA!

Whilst resisting the urge to eat the Pocky Sticks (which some children found particularly challenging in itself), they were […]
