Graduation

Massive Congratulations to all our 6th class pupils and their families who had their graduation tonight. We had a fun Zoom party and a trip down memory lane. We wish you all every success in Secondary School and beyond. Never forget how proud we are of you all.

Be The Best That You Can Be.

Virtual Sports Week

The Summer 2020 Target Table is designed to engage children in collecting their own data and seeing if they can improve
(with practice!) over the summer of 2020, on dates of their choice. The children could choose what aspects of their own sporting ability they would like to improve or perhaps pick a variety of tasks from a proposed list to practice throughout the summer. Follow the link for more information.

Virtual Sports Week

Have you ever measured your reaction time? There’s an easy way to test reaction times using just a ruler.

Reaction time is the time taken for a person to respond to a stimulus. For example if you touch something very cold, there is a slight delay between you touching it and moving your hand away, because it takes time for the information to travel from your hand, to your brain where it is processed and then a response started. Follow the link below to find out how to test your reaction time.

Maths challenge-Tables

A good knowledge of tables is crucial to success in maths. Why not take on this project for the summer and make your stairs more interesting!!

maths challenge-THE E PUZZLE

The aim of the E puzzle is to reverse the positions of the Green and Red counters in the bold grid.

There are rules of course to make it a challenge:

*There is no passing or jumping.

*Only one piece at a time can be in the same square.

You can use counters, coins, buttons anything you like.

Air Hockey

If you would like a new game to play then why not try air hockey. You can play it indoors or outdoors. Use old bowls, plant pots, tins or anything else you can think of to hit with. A beanbag or pair of socks will do as a puck. Use some pieces of wood, a broom handle or rolled up towels as the sides.
