Grand Prix Racing at Barlestone
In On 18th May, some of our Y5 & 5 children took part in a grand Prix challenge, with other local primary schools. They worked in teams to produce a K'nex vehicle and then took part in challenges to find out which car went the fastest and which went the furthest. We only narrowly missed the winners podium.
"It was great to meet children from other schools," reported Shane in Y4.
Creative Crafts Day
Just before Easter, the whole school enjoyed printing and stitching to produce leaves and animals for our Christian Values collage. The sessions were lead by local textile artist Mary Halbert. She was very impressed by the skills of the children and how well the older children supported the younger ones. "I did not know that I would make something so good," remarked one year 3 pupil. "I liked helping my partner in Hedgehogs' class," said one Y6 boy.
The collage is being sewn together by Mary and will be hung in the hall when completed.
