Year 5 Space Conference

YEAR 5 PROJECT

Year 5 took part in something really exciting last week. Thanks to some high-spec cracking laptops and wireless technology, (and the webcam supplied by Gary Jelks' team at Redbridge) they had a fantastic afternoon using the live simulation link/video conference to the National Space Centre.

Working in small teams they had to take care of a fair bit of research from the NASA website, finding out what it is like to be OUT THERE IN SPACE!!

Picnic on the Field.

On Friday 4th July we held our first ever 'Picnic on the Field'. We had a fantastic turn out of people - more than we had expected. The weather was really kind to use and families turned up with their picnic blankets and chairs to enjoy a relaxing, sociable afternoon. Children enjoyed being able to run around and play, whilst parents sat back and enjoyed the sunshine. There were plenty of food stalls including cakes and samosas, and game stalls, pin the tail on the donkey, splat the year 6 and of course face painting and henna hand painting.
Take a look at these photos to see what a good time everybody had!!
