Year 6 visit to SafetyWorks!

Lego League Champions

On Tuesday 7th February, a team of ten Year 5 and 6 children headed to Nissan to compete in the First LEGO League competition.

The competition was made up of four parts: Robot design, Robot games, Innovation project and core values. The children completed each of these parts of the competition, clearly demonstrating our school values. Their resilience and collaboration skills were put to the test and they absolutely shone despite the challenges they faced!

As the day progressed, they worked together, improved and strategized to do the best they possibly could – and they succeeded!

The children came first in the innovation project where they gave a presentation on an idea to help the energy crisis. Their enthusiasm and engagement was clear and they gave an absolutely brilliant presentation! Worthy winners!

The LEGO League team were thrilled with the resilience, teamwork and kindness the team showed not only each other, but the other teams on the day.

Feeding Families for Christmas appeal.

 We just want to say a huge thank you to all of our families and staff for all of their kind donations towards the Feeding Families for Christmas appeal. It was certainly very heartwarming to see the huge pile of donations and we know for sure it will spread some festive cheer amongst those families who need it. 

A special thank you to Lara Scott and her husband from Hartford Fire Station who helped take all of the donations safely to the packing centre in Kingston Park. 

Thank you to Emily, Mason, Lily and Jacob from Year 4 for their appearance in the picture too. :) 

Thank you so much!!
