Pupils in Year 5 have been creating their own businesses over the summer term. This culminated in the children selling their wares/services today and raising money for charity.
The exact totals are still being tallied up but they raised in excess of £125. After paying their investors and bankers, the remainder of the profit will be divided amongst the various chosen charities.

Throughout this week, some of our Year 5 pupils brought their bikes into school and took part in a cycling proficiency course. They all did really well, following instructions with care and enthusiasm.
Well done to those pupils who took part.

This morning Year 5 gave a very informative assembly about life as a Victorian child, the History topic they have been learning about in class. The children showed us how different school lessons were for Victorian children using role play (which included a rather regimented PE drill!) and telling us about their recent trip to the British Schools Museum in Hitchin. They also showed us their paintings of Queen Victoria.
Year 5 also told us about the ‘explanation texts’ they have been working on in English and their Science topic on ‘materials’. They finished the assembly singing a lovely rendition of ‘Silent Night’ accompanied by the Year 5 violinists. Thank you to Mrs Cross for helping the children give such an interesting assembly. Well done Year 5.

Year 5 visited Batford Springs today as part of their river study. They learnt about the chalk streams from Mr Randall, one of the Batford Springs Volunteers, and saw a spring from an underground aquifer. They had lots of fun investigating the depth and flow of the River Lea!
Huge thanks to our parent helpers Mrs Tinnion, Mrs Morrow and Mrs Martin who accompanied the children and helped with the activities.

At the beginning of term, Young Enterprise came to our school to spend a day with Year 5. Since then, the class have been setting up and developing their own businesses and yesterday they held a market in the school hall to sell their wares. All profits made are being donated to various charities chosen by each of the Year 5 business groups.
