Before half term, the Year 5 team set Hazel and Hornbeam children the challenge of running, walking or cycling as far as they could in the week's break to promote good physical and mental wellbeing. With our heavy and unavoidable reliance on technology since Christmas, we thought it a good idea to promote some time away from screens. Children were required to record their total distances and pass them over to their teachers.
Once we had all of the miles in, we decided to add them all together and see how far we had travelled as a collective. Our combined totals showed that we travelled a whopping 485.1 miles between us! This is the equivalent of travelling from Preston Primary to Amsterdam (via Calais and through Belgium), with a few miles left over! What an achievement!
Please visit Year 6 class pages for more wonderful examples of the work completed by the children this week.
Following the live life skills lesson on Friday, Daniel has ventured into the kitchen and cooked a curry and naan bread. Well done Daniel, a Masterchef in the making!
Reception Home Learning
We are delighted to see so many reception children embracing their home learning so positively. We love seeing your photos and receiving emails letting us know how you're getting on. Keep up the good work and keep sending in those pictures!!
Whilst the children at home have been busy, the children of key workers have been in school learning too. Today they explored their surroundings outside looking for optimistic signs of Spring and new life!
