Friday 16th October

Today we are making the move from setting paper homework, to using Microsoft Teams.  For this week only the homework is also available below in case of any initial problems. 

School Closure Home Learning

Big Me Day

In March 2020, the whole school took part in a Big Me Week and raised money for Action Aid.  For a day the children came into school dressed as what they would like to be when they are older and visitors spoke to each class. Year 5 were lucky enough to speak to David Callaghan, Chair of Governors, about his careers as an electrical engineer.   

Henley on Thames Rowing and River Museum

In February 2020, Year 5 visited Henley on Thames Rowing and River Museum as part of their Geography topic on Rivers.  They took part in a variety of activities about the river and went on a walk about the Thames path. 

Athletics Finals

In February 2020, the Year 5 children attended the finals of the Athletics tournament held at Watford Girls Grammar after previously earning their place in the finals.  

DT Pots

Over January and February 2020, the Year 5 children researched, designed and made their own pots. 

Coding Workshop

In January 2020, Year 5 took park in a BBC Micro-Bit Coding Workshop run by Hertfordshire’s SETPOINT.  They learnt about real life uses for coding and had a chance to write their own code to program a Microbit which then controlled a series of LED arrays like you would see on the motorway to inform traffic. 

 

Cycling Proficiency

In November 2019, Year 5 children were given the chance to train for and pass their on-road, cycling proficiency test. 

Interhouse Tournament

In June 2019, the Year 5 and 6 children competed in the annual inter-house competition.  All 4 house colours competed in football and netball matches.

 

Water Ways Canal Visit

In April 2019, Year 5 visited Batchworth Lock and learnt about life on a canal boat, how to open and close the lock and the history of the canal. They also had the opportunity to go on a boat trip along the canal. This visit links to their Local history topic in the summer term.
