Due to the ‘Beast from the East’, we celebrated  World Book Day a week later. Despite snowing again, and most schools around us being closed, most of our 27 children managed to make it in, and wear their World Book Day outfits. We had lots of fun competing against Year 5 in the World Book Day Quiz! After break, we designed our own book covers – in the Harry Potter style – for our stories with Flashbacks.

World Book Day (1)

As part of our Topic ‘How has Britain changed since 1948?’, we visited the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford. We were able to explore technological changes, visit the Wonderlab – where we could explore the effects of light and sound, enjoy a 3D film all about the International Space Station, and even have an ‘explosive’, practical Science lesson all about light!


On Monday 15th January, a group of our children took part in a Maths problem solving day, at Blakehill Primary School, with Year 6 children from other schools in the local area. They had a fantastic time solving a range of tricky practical problems.
