Aiming High

During PSHE week we thought about our hopes, dreams and ambitions for the coming year.  We made models of ourselves and here we are with our flags telling what we are aiming to achieve in Year 5.

We have made a great start to the challenges of being in Upper Keystage 2.

Year 6 preparing party food for their Leavers’ Prom

Year 6 worked with the ‘Food in Schools’ company this week to prepare a feast for their Leavers’ Assembly. Since they had been studying all things European they decided to make Italian individual pizzas and then some delicious biscuits with the European country they have been studying carefully iced on the top! They learnt lots of skills along the way and finished with 2 delicious treats.

The start of ‘Keeping ourselves safe week’

Year 6 have been learning about the dangers of swimming in open waters, such as reservoirs, lakes and rivers. They  then presented the information in a choice of formats. They will be sharing their work with the high school that they will be attending in September.

Dragons Den: Success for Y6 and Y1

Anyone who came to Cale Green’s Summer Fair could not have missed our Dragon’s Den project: ‘Bags of Fun’. For £3.50 or £4.50 customers could get a wide range of goods, not forgetting those last minute presents for Father’s Day!

We were tasked with growing a business and were given £400 to support our project. By the end of the Summer Fair we had made a profit on what we’d spent! 16-06-2016 140741 18-06-2016 105516 18-06-2016 105518 18-06-2016 105523 18-06-2016 105525 18-06-2016 111347

The Radio 2 500 Word Story Competition

We have been working hard to write stories to submit to the Chris Evan’s show on Radio 2 for this annual competition.  At Cale Green, Year 4 have not entered before, so it has been challenging.  Here are a selection of stories that have been submitted.  I hope to add a few more by the end of the week – some children just need to add a few words to reach the 500 required.

Please take time to read and comment.
