With so much going on in the world right now following Euro 2020, it was delightful and refreshing to read Emily's Mr Men story. It is the perfect reminder that we are all imperfect, we don't always get things right, we are all different and unique but this is OK. It is Ok to make mistakes, it is OK to not always get everything right, it is OK to be human. A perfect reminder to #bekind.
Well done Emily!

On Thursday and Friday this week children can come to school in their PE kit. On Thursday, Mrs Thompson is holding a sports day event. On Friday, as an end of year celebration we are going to be playing some outdoor games.
On Friday we would like to provide a pick & mix, snacks (crisps, popcorn) & juice. All items will be individually wrapped to adhere to COVID regulations. If you would prefer to send your own snacks, please feel free. If you would rather your child did not have snacks, please email and let us know.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support this year, it has been greatly appreciated in what has been such a strange year. Stay safe and have a lovely summer.

Our Science unit for this topic was to learn about rocks and soils and how they are formed. Children participated extremely well with this unit considering much of it was completed on online learning! So, when we arrived back in school we had a host of practical activities to catch up on!
First of all, we used Starbursts to replicate the rock cycle.
Then, we used clay and plaster to replicate the fossilisation process.
Finally, we used our mummification instructions that we had written to mummify a tomato!
Coming soon....our end of year DVD!!
Keep your eyes peeled on our website & media to watch each year groups end of year DVD!
This month our Phase activity was a challenge set for children to research Earth Day 2021. They then had the choice of activities to complete; a poem, a poster explaining how to help, or to research an extinct or endangered animal. It was fantastic to see so many children participating from years 3 & 4 so a huge well done to those who did. Here is a selection of the work completed.
Earth Day Poem
Our planet is in danger
We need to help it stay alive
By picking up litter, remembering to recycle
The Earth will once again thrive
Walking not driving
The Earth needs to heal
To get better and be a safe home
For the elephant, human and seal
Follow these rules
Will help the world stay healthy
We all need to do our part
To make the Earth feel wealthy.

Axolotl Fact File
An axolotl is critically endangered because of pollution. They can only be found in Mexico City and there are only 700 - 1,000 axolotl's left which is not much left. It might be a big number but with humans and animals it is a tiny amount. They have an adorable permanent smile. An axolotl can regenerate limbs if it loses one. An axolotl is known as a “walking fish”, but is not a fish and is an amphibian, also related to a tiger salamander.

There are 3 types of sea turtles that are endangered, they are called greens, hawksbills and kemp's ridleys. The reason why is climate change has warmed up the sand where they nest. Also when they swim in the sea they get trapped by plastic bags and rubbish and die.

There are only a billion sharks in our seas. This reason is us and part of this is because of shark fin soup .Fishermen will catch a shark and cut off its fins and let it die .sharks are the one of the biggest ocean predators .so soon the ocean will become overpopulated and nat be able to provide a home for the sea life .
