A special visitor!

Today, Year 5, were excited to meet Dave Heyhoe. After writing remembrance poems for his dog, Treo, and attaching them to his memorial, Dave wanted to meet the children.  We loved hearing all his stories and how wonderful Treo was. We were told about how he was trained with a tennis ball and a rubber duck, as well how he helped in the war in Afghanistan. Some of us are reading Dave’s book “All about Treo”. It was so interesting to listen to their experiences and how they saved many lives. Treo was honored by receiving the Dickin Medal, which is the highest award any animal can receive whilst serving in the military.

Remembering Treo

The children in Year 5 have written poems in remembrance of Treo 63 DM. Treo was awarded the Dickin Medal (the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross). He saved a huge number of lives by sniffing out explosive devices in Afghanistan.

 

What a Wonderful Year!

Thank you for a lovely year and all of the very nice presents that I received. I look forward to having you all again for your last year in primary school. Hope that you all have a lovely summer remember to try to have time to read as much as you can and keep learning. See you in September! Miss Sowry 🙂

Bible Explorers Week 1

On Monday, Year 5 had our first bible explorers lesson with Beth from New Life Church. We learnt about some of the stories from the old testiment and we learnt actions

for each story .We really enjoyed it when Beth lets us dress up and act out scenes from the stories we learnt. It was a really fun way to learn about the bible and we can’t wait until next time!
