    Year 5/6 Chapel FM Broadcast on Monday 5th February, 2018 at 1.30pm.

    Year 5/6 have been learning about the Industrial Revolution this half term. As a way to show case this learning, we have arranged for some of them to visit Chapel FM to broadcast a live show on Monday 5th February at 1.30pm. Children and staff at school will be tuning in to listen and parents, carers and friends can do the same by visiting and clicking on ‘Listen Now’ on the Chapel FM website.
    Please note: this button only becomes available once the show is live. Don’t worry if you can’t tune in live since a download link will be sent out after the broadcast has aired.

    This term it's all about the Industrial Revolution for Year 5 and 6. Today, we dressed as Victorian characters and found out how children learned in a Victorian school. Dunce caps, nail inspections and the cane! Everyone looked fantastic. Well done Year 5 and 6.


     Autumn 2 2017/18

    A group of Year 5/6 children had a brilliant trip to UTC Leeds to take part in their week long project about Space. They were able to visit the Planetarium, talk to BBC astronaut Tim Gregory and spend time exploring infra-red light. It was an inspiring visit for everyone. Maybe they will be inspired enough to become the scientists of future space exploration?
