Year 5’s trip to the stars

Year 5 had a visit this week from The Black Hole Planetarium. Everyone stepped into the darkness, inside the huge dome, to explore the wonders of space. We learnt all about the planets and stars and saw the constellations as they appear in the night sky. It was a wonderful experience, which the children won’t forget.

This afternoon, Year 6 learned all about physical and human geography. Using Google Maps, we looked at the geography around Cannon Park and compared it to two others schools: one in Cornwall and one in the Lake District. We thought about how the lives of those children might be different and similar from ours based on the geography.

Summer Reading Challenge

The Reading Agency and libraries are excited to introduce Space Chase, Summer Reading Challenge 2019; an out-of-this-world adventure inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

This summer children will help our super space family track down books nabbed by mischievous aliens! As they read library books, they will solve clues and collect special stickers to complete their missions folder. Can they find the aliens in time to save the day?

The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. You can sign up at your local library, then read at least six books of your choice to collect special stickers and other rewards along the way – all for FREE. There’s a website to add to the fun too.

The Space Chase, Summer Reading Challenge 2019 started on Saturday 13 July and ends in the first week of September.

If you join in with the Reading Challenge, please share your booklets with us in September so we can celebrate reading in our Friday Assembly.
