On Thursday 1st October Year 5 visited St Clement Danes School to compete in this years Three Rivers and Watford Sports Partnership Tri Golf competition.
The class was split into 3 teams and they each played various games that tested their driving, chipping and putting skills. Everyone contributed to the teams success and they narrowly missed out on victory finishing second. A big thank you to everyone in year 5 for making it such a fun and successful afternoon.
To inspire their writing, Year 6 have spent time making Roman chariots. They worked collaboratively to assess the available resources and come up with their own designs. Outside, they used these resources to build their chariots designing their own creative tools. They will be using these chariots to create their own radio adverts to try to persuade you to buy their chariot. What do you like about the designs they created?

This week we will be learning about how to stay safe online (online means when you use the Internet). Years 1,2,3 and 4 have been given special challenges which they will discuss in class. Below is a brilliant video that will help you stay safe online and will give you something to base your discussions on. Years 5 and 6, the video will serve as a useful reminder for you too. Remember, if something online doesn’t feel right, stop what you are doing and talk to a grown up that you trust.
Dear Parents and Carers,
I received this email a couple of weeks ago from my talented colleague, Ms Foad, at Shepherds Primary:
Year 4 went outside to be creative with their maths skills. They worked together in small groups to completed some number problems using the natural resources in our area.
Some excellent communication and problem solving skills were on display and the results were very effective.
