Week beginning 19th May

The Year 5 football team played in the semi finals of the Millennium Cup this week against Priory Park Junior School.  The team won 3-2 with goals scored by Fin, Jack and Lewis.  The team have now progressed to the final of the cup.  Well played Fin, James, Mack, Edward, Charlie, Jack, Lewis and Henry – good luck in the final.  Thank you to the parents who helped with transport to and from Priory Park.

Year 5 and 6 had their Viking Day this week.  Everyone had a very entertaining and interesting day learning about Viking food, Viking writing and making Viking shields.  We ended the day with a battle out on the school field.  These are quotes from the pupils about their day:-
            “I liked making a shield, however I preferred Viking writing”.
            “I enjoyed all of it but the best part was the battle at the end”.
            “I really liked when we designed our shields but the best bit was the battle”.
            “I really enjoyed the whole of the Viking day, the best bit was writing in Viking”.

Our Year 5 children visited the Safety Zone which is based at St Neots Fire Station.  During their visit the children were given advice by local police officers and PCSO’s, representatives from the Fire Service, Environmental Health, Road Safety and St John’s Ambulance officers on personal safety. It was an enjoyable and informative afternoon for both the children and the teachers who accompanied them.
