Parental Engagement

 A big thank you to all the parents and carers who attended this event. The children thoroughly enjoyed the reading quiz where they had to answer questions on the authors, book names and settings of different children's books.


Year 5 have been busy designing and building their own earthquake proof structures.

They used several different materials to create them. Skewers, straws, blu tac, both large and small marshmallows and sellotape in the hope they would remain intact when vigorously shaken by the teachers.
