For Comic Relief, Year 5 did a Superhero Car Wash to raise money. Everybody in Year 5 dressed up as any superhero and had their own sections of staff cars to clean. In those groups we were put into groups of 3 to wash our assigned cars. We then gave out donation cards for the staff to complete on how well a job we did. In total, we raised an amazing £324.90 for charity.
A huge well done to all of Year 5 and a special thanks for the kind donations from the staff members too.
Year six have recently made pillows in design and technology: they had to come up with a design to do with World War 2. The children decided to either complete 2, 4 or 6 boxes on their material. When they had their design they transferred it onto their pillows and then used back and running stitch to sew around the pictures, words and letters they had drawn. Once they had completed the sewing they were able to colour in their designs with fabric crayons and pens. Finally, they stuffed the pillows and sealed them up using blanket stitch.
Year 6 recently went to Fairplay House for their residential. The children tried all the different activities: archery, caving, big swing and woodland games. We also completed a night walk which was rather scary! The children had great fun and really enjoyed their time their. Here are some photos and videos.
