Autumn Term 2019
During this term the children in Year 5 have been learning about Explorers and the world around them. 
They have taken cuttings of our "Cuddly Cacti" ready to sell at the summer fayre, and planted runners from our strawberry plants in order to create new plants.
We picked and cooked the apples from the trees in the school grounds and the children made apple pasties - even making their own shortcrust pastry!! 
We had a visit form the fire service who taught the children the importance of understanding about staying safe.
