Year 6: Codebreakers

This week, Year 6 have been looking at the secret codes used during WW2. They learnt about Bletchley Park and its role during the war as well as Alan Turing and how he cracked the Enigma code using his 'Bombe' machine.

Our own crafty cryptographers created scramblers, which worked on the basis of the Caesar Cipher, and had a go at cracking codes themselves. The children developed their problem solving skills and gained an understanding of how codes can be used to encrypt and decrypt secret messages.

It was fascinating fun and Year 6 are looking forward to creating their own ciphers next week.

Worldly Wise: Holi Festival

Powder paint, colourful decorations and fire: this week's Worldly Wise assembly looked at the excitement surrounding Holi festival. As well as learning about the fun that surrounds this festival, children were impressed by the acting of a number of our pupils who recreated the story of the festival's origin.

Remember to look through your Wordly Wise booklet to see what exciting festival we will be learning about next week.

Reception: Settling In

We have had a great time in Reception this week getting to know each other. The Elephants, Lions and Giraffes have already settled in so well. Children have had a really busy week exploring their classrooms, picking up routines and learning the names of their new friends. It's been wonderful to see their confidence begin to grow. 




New House Captains

Congratulations to all the children in Year 6 who ran for election for the prestigious honour of House Captain and Vice Captain. Speeches worthy of a presidential election were delivered during Thursday's House Meetings, making voting a tough decision for the remaining KS2 children; however, the votes have now been counted and we are delighted to introduce you to this year's, newly elected captains.

Every week, teachers recognise pupils in their class who have made an extra effort. These pupils are awarded the E for Effort cup in front of the whole school during our Friday morning assembly.

To celebrate the excellent behaviour and attitude of our pupils as they settled into their new year groups, many teachers presented the cup to their entire class. Representatives from these classes, together with individual winners, appear in the photo below.

Congratulations to all of our wonderful pupils for such a great start to the new school year.
