Term 2

Sport Relief: The Timber Trail Mile.


Today, Friday 18th March at approximately 11:00am, Year 5 completed their Sport Relief mile. The Sport Relief mile was in aid of charity, to raise money for less fortunate people from around the world. Our Class representatives, Leisha Measor, Ben Mclean, Casey Shaw and Levi Warren, decided that Year 5 would complete a mile on the timber trail. Although some people fell, and shoes flew off, we never gave up!

World Book Day



St Hilda's Church.

This term we visited St Hilda's Church on the Headland. We learned about the Northern Saints and what they did to help the Christian faith. Did you know ... St Hilda was part of a synod who decided when Easter would be in the 600's. We got to dress up and paint pictures during our visit. It was lots of fun.  'I liked colouring in and learning about St Hilda' Melissa. 'My favourite part was working with Tony, he was really nice' Coral. 'My Favourite part was dinner!' Lewis.
