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.
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 🙂
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!

We investigated air resistance by designing parachutes. We then tested our different parachutes on the school playground and kept it a fair test by using the same person to drop the parachute each time. We concluded that the size and shape affects the speed of the parachute and the more or less air resistance that it has. IMG_1085

This 3D virtual reality experience was amazing! Read More
