St Hilds School Visit


Went on a visit to St Hilds to try out some really exciting English, geography, science and music lessons.  We learnt a few songs and even spent some time in a planetarium.  Oh, we also had a fantastic two course lunch.  A great day.

Year 5 are working with Dyke House College on their iAspire programme.  After a visit to their school where we looked at all sorts of different careers, this week their staff visited us and we looked at what skills engineers need.  To use those skills we tried to build a tower that would hold the weight of a golf ball.  We had a wide range of levels of success.  To see some photos either head to the gallery link or click the photo below.

All across the school we took pat in Safer Internet Day 2017.  As well as lots of discussion and watching videos, we decided to tell people our safer internet messages in emojis.

Can you work out what they all say?
