As part of our Anti-Bullying Week, we all came to school in odd socks to celebrate our differences. We also worked as a team to run a collective 30 miles for Children in Need, supporting and encouraging each other equally!

We have been working in teams to build Victorian and modern shoebox rooms so that we can see how home life has changed over time.

The children have worked really hard to produce well researched and presented projects about the Victorians. Well done all of you!

What an amazing day we had at Cold Harbour Mill, finding out about how the wool is made and taking our job applications to Mr Robson, the mill foreman. He was a little scary but we learnt so much from him about what working in the mill would have been like.

We were visited by Charlotte’s family of tortoises this week. We really enjoyed holding them and finding out more about how they live and grow. Thank you so much, Mr and Mrs Philpots, for bringing them in.
