The children in Buzzard class were very excited to be back in their classroom today.  Thank you to everyone who has helped to make it a safe and fantastic learning environment. 

Dogs Trust Visit

On Thursday, Buzzard class became 'Dog Detectives!' for an exciting and very interesting workshop. Vicki from the 'Dogs Trust' was in school to delivery workshops on 'Behaving Safely Around Dogs'. During the workshops Vicki told us all about the work of the Dogs Trust, how they look after dogs, re-home them into suitable families and help owners care for their dogs. She also taught us how to behave safely around dogs to ensure that we stay safe as well. We learnt loads! We learnt that dogs don't like hugs because hugs are for humans. Dogs prefer to snuggle up to you instead. We learnt that if a dog is running up to us, we should throw away any food or toys we are holding, cross our arms over our chest and look away (our superhero shield). We should not run as the dog thinks you are playing and will chase you. 

This was a great workshop and we really enjoyed it. 

Welcome Year 5 2023

Thank you to those parents who managed to come to the 'Meet the Teacher' meeting this morning. It was lovely to meet you all. If you were unable to make it the PowerPoint that was shared is attached to this page. 

The children were very excited to see you and invite you into their new classroom. They enjoyed designing their Greek vases and were proud of the end results. 

Year 5 Design Technology

This term Year 5's DT project was creating a savoury snack suitable for a Greek picnic. Throughout the term we have been learning about seasonal produce, different types of savoury snacks, looking at typical Greek products and researching different recipes. We decided to make our own stuffed Greek pitta breads. All our work culminated in a DT day where we reminded ourselves about being safe in the kitchen and made our stuffed pittas. We all really enjoyed chopping, slicing and stuffing our pitta breads with our chosen ingredients. In the afternoon we got to taste and evaluate our snacks. We all had a great day and hopefully are going to make our snacks again at home.  Thank you to the parents who volunteered to come in and help us.
