  • Junior Maths Challenge

    Published 05/06/19

    On Tuesday 30th April, Year 8s who are in set one for maths , Year 7s who are also in set one for maths and a few set one year 6s, took place in the Junior Maths Challenge. The Junior Maths Challenge is a very demanding test, which is full of long, detailed questions that all carry a lot of marks. Unlike other tests, you can lose marks if you attempt a question and get it wrong. Your mark doesn’t really matter because it’s not like a test that will determine your sets for anything; it’s just a challenge to get your brain thinking… A LOT! It is very hard. Good luck to anybody that takes part. Let’s hope we can get lots of bronze, silver and gold certificates!

  • Crafternoon Tea

    Published 05/06/19

    On the 3rd of May, Mrs. Cheape hosted another Crafternoon Tea. Several parents turned up with their kids to have an afternoon of crafting. It gave the GEMS pupils and their parents an opportunity to show off their crafting skills while having fun. There were several things to do; canvas painting, bag painting, decorate a mug, create a hedgehog book and sewing squares. The people who went to the Crafternoon Tea were given tea (obviously), coffee and biscuits while they worked on their crafts and chatted to their family and friends. The Crafternoon tea was, yet again, a success and the people who went had lots of fun and £200 was raised for Love Quilts UK.

    Published 05/06/19

    The big battery hunt was launched in a KS2 assembly by members of 5SL . We have given out boxes to all of KS2 which we would like them to fill with spent AAA,AA, C and D batteries. The members of 5SL have researched about landfill sites. Land fill sites are not only ugly but can hold up to 4000 elephant’s worth of batteries. They also leak toxic acid into the air causing our planet to be polluted.
