Great fun was had during Maths Week on a maths trail around our school!
Games are a valuable, fun and interesting way of helping children to work together and to raise the level of co-operative consciousness within the class. 5th class had great fun partaking in a co-operative game of Pattern Ball during their P.E. lesson.
Singing for Climate Change
On September 20th , the day of the Global Climate Change Strike, the school sang this song together on the yard. The children researched ways that we can help save our environment and they presented their findings in class. The children spoke about recycling...using a washing line instead of a dryer...shopping locally...swapping plastic straws for metal straws...walking instead of driving when possible and many more ideas!

On Wednesday the 13th of November Fifth class attended an interactive science display, entitled "Dr. How's Sciences Wows".
Fifth class pupils were tasked with performing their own science experiments this week. Each group began with a question. They predicted the possible outcomes, gathered the materials, performed the experiment and communicated their results to the class. We learned a lot from each other.
