BLAST OFF! The class were thrilled that this week it was time to make their very own rockets! The children designed their rockets last week; making sure to include fins, a body tube and a nose cone in order to make the rocket aerodynamic.  We were also inspired by our learning at the Winchester Science Centre last week.  This week we used a variety of materials and joining skills to bring our designs to life!

But, of course, the highlight of our week was taking part in the Year 1 Summer Super Sports Gala, hosted by Prep and led by all the fabulous sports staff.  The children were treated to an exciting carousel of sporting activities – cricket, rugby, tennis, athletics to name but a few – and competed with Year 1 children from Richmond Borough schools.  We were lucky enough to enjoy a glorious afternoon and we were all impressed with the sportsmanship displayed by our plucky Year 1 athletes!

Wishing you all a wonderful and restful half term.
