After carefully drawing colourful rockets and creating a textured moon the finished works of art were complete. Everyone has been very impressed with how effective they all look and how very different they all are.

The children worked in pairs to create fish and other sea creatures out of plastic rubbish. Bottles, crisp packets, cartons and bags were transformed into colorful fish, octopus and jelly fish ready for a display in the school corridor. Mrs Newman shared a presentation about plastic in the ocean at the start of the afternoon which helped make the message clear!
All the children worked together in their house teams to celebrate the royal wedding. There was a very British theme to the activities which included playing cricket, singing at The Proms, baking union jack jam tarts, decorating wedding cake and painting plates. Everyone wore their party outfits for the day and staff brought in their own wedding dresses for all to admire.
