Young Mathematicians Award

On Wednesday, we had a great trip to Explore Learning, Kingston. Whilst we were there, we had to use our problem solving and reasoning to tackle different problems. We were also competing against other schools.

A massive well done to everyone that took part! Your resilience and determination was amazing to see and you should be really proud of yourselves!


It has been amazing to see so much enthusiasm from all of 5A this week! They have been really inspired by their learning and have learnt so much! This afternoon was a chance for us to open our doors to the community and be proud of all the learning we have achieved this week. Every child has taken part in history, art and writing activities that they have made individual to them. They all loved sharing their learning and knowledge with others, particularly family members so thank you all for your participation! Well done for all your hard work 5A!

This week 3C had the chance to visit the new health centre for our local area which is in the process of being built. With the help of several parent (and grandparent volunteers) we walked from Fen Street to the site where we were kitted out in safety kit including hard, hats, gloves and hard hats – very stylish! After a safety talk we were shown around the building.

We were led by Nick and his colleague who taught us lots of facts about the construction and planned layout of the the building which has cost nearly £8million to build and is due to be finished by June. The centre will include dentists suites as well as Dr’s examination rooms, a minor surgery room complete with a recovery room and even a cafe (with healthy snacks I’m sure). Ambulances will be available outside with a large car park for patients and visitors.

3C showed lots of interest and asked a whole range of interesting questions from “What are all the different coloured wires for?” to “How many bricks were needed to make the building?”. Willmott Dixon did a great job of answering all the questions and even the adults leant a lot from the information they shared.

At the end of the tour, the children were kindly offered a momento of the visit. Many chose a Keyring, while Mrs Kingsman opted for sharpeners. 😀

Thank you so much Willmott Dixon for the opportunity to visit. It was brilliant! 👏🏾
