"Always treat others as you would like them to treat you" Matthew 7:12 "Shine like the stars" Daniel 12:3


Welcome to Newts - Years 5 and 6


As part of our science topic looking at the circulatory system, we got the exciting opportunity to dissect a sheep’s heart. The children had to identify the external features, including the major blood vessels, such as the aorta and vena cava. The children then carefully opened the hearts up and were able to identify each of the four chambers and components inside them. All children took part in the lesson and the experience was a real stand out moment in their science journeys.

We have been looking at blood and what cells different cells make up blood. We talked about what the different cells do, red cells carry  oxygen, plasma is the liquid that carries the nutrients and white blood cell help protect us against infection. White blood cells have a memory which help them protect us from infections we have had before and infections we are given vaccines for such as COVID19. We also made own blood using everyday objects to represent the different cells.

We created rainbow inspired artwork as a celebration of us all returning from lockdown.

Interviewing a WW2 Evacuee

The class had an opportunity to interview a WW2 evacuee, who was able to tell us all about his experiences during the war.


To finish off our first term  we had a game of  good old conkers together - complete with 'windmills', free hits, "strings" and the odd "stamps."
