On 4th December, various members of the community were invited to join our carol service and listen to some Christmas carols with a mince pie. All the children sang beautifully and  everyone enjoyed it. Well done to Mr Collier, Mrs Barraclough and all those who helped.

Manchester Airport

There are some photos from our day below. I will be choosing our best recount of the trip and posting it on the blog within the next few days!

Year 5 Brazil Carnival Day 2017

Yesterday the children in Year 5 took part in a Brazil day and found out all about Brazilian carnivals. They made a flag and a mask and then tried some different fruits in the afternoon. They all made their own tropical punch from orange, pineapple and apple juice.

The sun came out too just like in Brazil 🙂

 

Here are some photos of our day.

 

What did you learn about carnivals Year 5?
