Building Bridges

As part of our Hook Week, the children built bridges to link in with our learning about the history of British rail. Each bridge had to hold the weight of a toy train! We had some really solid bridges – well done guys!

Crew Knowles become scientists!

Crew Knowles have enjoyed being scientists today and exploring some really tricky concepts!

We have looked at:

  • States of matter (solids, liquids and gases)
  • Reversible and irreversible changes
  • Elements, compounds and mixtures (including the Periodic Table!)
  • Scientific enquiries (electrical circuits)


We have investigated all of this today to hook us in to our science learning which will be coming up soon and I am very excited for!


Year 6 visit to Harry Potter Studios

Please find further information and details here:

Dear Parents, 

We are so excited about our first school trip as year 6 to HARRY POTTER STUDIO TOUR (LONDON)Wednesday 15th September 2021. 

We would just like to remind you of the following:

The coaches will leave school at 8.30am – please arrive at your classroom by 8am.

The coaches will return to school at approximately 8pm (we will keep you informed via text).

Please take into account the length of the day we will be out when packing lunches.  Children will require extra food in their packed lunch – eg. Cereal bar in the morning, normal packed lunch and a snack prior to leaving the studio plus at least 3 drinks. Pupils entitled to Free School Meals will be provided with a packed lunch from school including all above snacks.

Children need to wear their school jumper/cardigan and top, jogging bottoms / leggings and comfortable footwear.

We will have the opportunity to visit the Harry Potter Studios shop, we ask that children take no more than £20.  Please ensure that their money is in a named wallet / purse.

Children MUST NOT bring a mobile phone on the visit but they are welcome to bring a camera (they will need to look after it themselves).  They may also bring a book or something to do on the coach that isn’t electronic.

Finally, if your child suffers from travel sickness, please ensure that they take their tablet before arriving at school and then bring one in a named envelope for the return journey.

Yours sincerely

K Overson

Y5/6 Phase Leader
