TT Rockstars is here!

This week has seen the launch of the new and exciting Maths website and APP TT Rockstars in school. TT Rockstars is a great way for children to have fun with their times tables whilst increasing their confidence. Children will be using TT Rockstars in school but we would also like to encourage children to log on at home and play along with their Rockstar.


All about forces

Today Year 5 were taught by students from Leeds Beckett University completing a carousel of activities all about forces. The children had a splashing time learning about water resistance, zoomed through their friction activity and then the sky was the limit for their air resistance investigation. Here are some examples of the learning which took place. On behalf of the children, I'd like to thank the students for a great day and for all their hard work!

Virtual Reality is GO in Primrose Hill

This morning the children travelled through Space, which is apparently only 100km away, through the Google Virtual Reality app. Both staff and children thought it was amazing - especially Miss Colman.

Y5C Planet excavation

In Y5C this afternoon it got very exciting, we had discovered a frozen fossil from an unknown planet! At first, many people thought it was just a snail. However, after using toothpicks to make it clear, we found a big shell. Y5C suggested that as there is a fossil on that planet, there must have been living creatures! Below, are some images of the excitement we had chipping at the mysterious, frozen fossil!
