PE lessons are on a Wednesday and Thursday, so please wear your full PE kit to school on those days.
Orphans of the Tide is the story of orphan Ellie Lancaster, entirely alone on the world following the death of her mother, father and younger brother, as she battles to prove the innocence of a young boy who washes up on the shores of her city in the belly of a whale.
A huge well done to Daisy and Oliver for receiving Special Mentions certificates. They have both demonstrated themselves to be independent and motivated learners! They are certainly ready for high school, well done to you both!
We have enjoyed a unique French Week. Focusing on Francophone-Africa, the children explored the geography and history of the different French-speaking African countries. They explored African culture through music and art too, particularly enjoying playing rhythms to the beat of djembe drums. Take a look at some of their fantastic work produced!
We have had a fantastic week exploring our theme: 'Valuing Ourselves and Others.' After finding out about the influential charity Just B, the children researched and planned ideas to fundraise and celebrate our wellbeing. Working in small groups as entrepreneurs, they created innovative and unique event ideas, ranging from a cinema afternoon and a magic show, to a bike race and an art project! Throughout the week they used their persuasive writing skills to great affect to write a speech about their event ideas. At the end of the week each group delivered their speech to the class, explaining why their idea would be the most successful. Well done to Liam and Louis, the creators of a magic show event, who gained the majority winning vote!
As part of Enterprise Week, the class also explored Natwest's web pages called Money Sense. They learnt about the different types of bank accounts; how to keep money safe and about how the use of money is changing.
It was a really fun week and we can't wait for our Enterprise Day soon!
We began the fun day by investigating numbers. There were a selection of investigations to choose from, involving mathematical concepts such as coprime numbers, consecutive numbers and the number 24. The problems were open ended and took a long time to solve: we loved the challenge! We then took the number 24, and used the idea of 24 hours to inspire us in our writing. We wrote a range of stories based around a 24-hour period, such as 'a day in the life of' and 'a mission to solve within 24 hours!' In the afternoon we explored the importance of the NSPCC and the amazing work that the organisation do for children all over the United Kingdom.
Look at the children’s fantastic egg competition entries. The children worked so hard to create a range of egg creations. From fish tanks to Pokemon, Harry Potter to an NHS appreciation display, all of our entries were eggcellent! Well done to all of the, and especially to our winner!

Cheetah Art Work
We worked carefully in pairs to produce these drawings of cheetahs. It was a challenging task to make sure the pictures matched exactly, but we had a lot of fun creating them!
As part of the festival, we studied how people around the world sustain food, and how homes in different communities are self-sufficient. We enjoyed exploring how we can be more self-sufficient in here in Harrogate, by growing our own fruit and vegetables, using refill stations, and not wasting food.
