Today we took part in St John's Amublance's 'Big First Aid Lesson', we joined them live to learn about treating burns, calling for help and helping a choking casualty. We also learnt how to approach a casualty, check for breathing and put them into the recovery position. The class would love to show-off their learning to willing volunteers at home!
How do we see things? Today we started our new science topic of 'light'. We used string to demonstrate how we see things. Ask your child to explain the process to you using the keywords 'light source, reflect, object' and 'straight line'.
Although I often recommend games to you, so many more can be found on this fun and challenging website. Take a look around to discover lots more interactive games - I'd love to hear which ones you've been enjoying at home.

Four of our year 5's joined children from eight other Loughborough schools and had a great day out where they made land buggies, struggled round an obstacle course blindfolded and generally did the school proud with their conduct. Aiyana and Phoebe were members of the fastest buggy crew. Peter and Rocco starred when giving instructions on the obstacle course.
