Every half term, children are set home-learning tasks that link to their projects. Here are just a few of the inventive creations.

Parents from across all year groups joined us for a workshop aimed at developing parents' knowledge and skills as cyber parents.

The three winners all received vouchers for Waterstones bookshop where they can treat themselves to even more book fun.

Year 5 travel back in time (7 images)

To launch Year 5's project on the Vikings, they spent the day at Butser Ancient Farm. Here they learned about different aspects of life for the Scandinavian invaders and settlers. Children built a wattle fence, hand sewed using rhune symbols and decorated pieces of chalk by carving with flint then adding colour by rubbing leaves across their designs. They became archeologists, carefully digging up unusual items such as a handle for a cauldron and bones from farm animals.

World War 1 workshops (6 images)

To mark the 100th year since the end of WW1, children across the school were able to explore this significant time in history up close. They even saw a soldier's bible that saved his life when he was shot in the chest. Look closely and you'll see where the bullet was lodged.

Alongside these wonderful achievements, each class had a Star Learner focusing on being a Problem Solver as well as a Rights Respecting Champion. It was such a wonderful celebration of the hard work, great choices and fantastic attitudes our children show. Parents were also congratulated and thanked for their amazing support.
