Crew Jackson’s awesome art day

We have had an awesome day in Crew Jackson exploring different watercolour techniques. Our favourites were definitely the wax and splatter painting! Unfortunately the salt didn’t always have the desired effect on our work!

I can’t wait to see our final finished pieces later this week.



Year 5 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 5 next week to HARRY POTTER STUDIO TOUR (LONDON)Thursday 16th September 2021. 

We would just like to remind you of the following:

The coaches will leave school at 7.30am – please arrive at your classroom by 7am.

The coaches will return to school at approximately 7pm (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 

Crew Jackson’s awesome science day!

In Crew Jackson we have spent the day hooking into our first case study on Science. We have learnt so many new scientific facts about states of matter and irreversible and reversible changes. We had such fun being Exploring Eddie’s this afternoon with the electrical equipment and can’t wait to get it out again later in the week!

Year 5/6 Harry Potter Day

Year 5/6 have had an awesome day today!  They started the day selecting their house team from the sorting hat before attending Hogwarts for the day.  They attended a potions class, a transfiguration lesson, played Quidditch, made magic and battled their fears in a defence against the dark arts class!  I can’t wait to see the wonderful videos Mr Taylor and Miss Knowles are putting together……watch this space!

Crew Jackson’s marshmallow challenge

What a fun afternoon we had in Crew Jackson! It was awesome to see the collaboration and problem solving the children did this afternoon. We definitely had a crew full of Stickability Stan as they persevered despite broken spaghetti and tape everywhere!  We ended up with most teams having a structure that stood with a marshmallow on top despite only one completely free-standing. Well done to Summer,Evan, Sophie and Harriet you were well deserved winners!
