Y5 Visit a Local Food Bank
Year 5 visited the local Food Bank in January and it was such an eye opening and interesting trip. We saw where the food that we had donated at Christmas is stored, how it is stored and how it is then distributed to people. We even got to have a go at putting dates on some of the items!
It was such a great opportunity to see how this amazing organisation works and to see just how hard people work to help it run smoothly!
The child from each class who earned the most Dojo's in Autumn term was rewarded with a pizza lunch. Well done!

We were very pleased to see the amazing work that has been created at home by the children of Robert Bakewell. The children were allowed to create anything they wanted so long as it linked with their school learning and it could be in any form they wished.
We were amazed by the creativity and dedication that each child has shown and as a result it was extremely difficult to choose a winner.
Our winners are:
1st - Olivia & Zara;
2nd - Archie;
3rd - Kate.
Well done to everyone that created wonderful work for us to share, and thank you to everybody at home for helping.
