Merry Christmas! Nadolig Llawen!
Our first term together in Year 5 has come to an end - how quickly have those four months gone! Everybody has worked hard this term and have made a great start to life in Year 5. Let's keep up the good work in the New Year when we will be learning about Healthy Lifestyles to start the new term.
We hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas break - enjoy spending time with your loved ones, get a well-deserved rest and we hope that Santa brings you what you wished for!
Da bo chi!

On Tuesday 27th November, ten pupils were fortunate enough to visit IrvinGQ (an MOD supplier) to present their ideas from a recycling parachute project that was carried out before half term. Staff from the company shortlisted these pupils, choosing designs that were unique and innovative. They enjoyed a tour of the factory, where they were able to see the production of parachutes and completed the visit with presentations in front of a panel of judges. All pupils involved were incredible and should be extremely proud of their achievement. Their efforts were recognized by incredibly generous gifts from the company. We are very proud of you all, well done.
An Audience with Martyn and Jessica from IrvinGQ
This Autumn Term, the children have been involved in a STEM project with a company called IrviNGQ, who make parachutes and search and rescue equipment. They have been asked to design something that can be made from a used parachute. There will be five finalists (pairs) chosen by the company, who will be lucky enough to visit the factory, present their ideas to a panel of judges and see the making of the parachutes in action. The winning pairs will also receive a prize. Watch this space for the results of the competition.
