Year 5 – EXPLORE UNIVERSITY PROJECT

Today, we have been busy learning about university life. The “Explore University” project is organised by Keele University, Staffordshire University, University of Wolverhampton and Harper Adams University and aims to help primary school children understand more about university. The children were challenged to recreate many aspects of a university using lego. Year 5 showed great resilience, teamwork and imagination throughout the morning. Well done!

Author Visit

On Monday, we kicked off Children’s Mental Health Week with a visit from local author, Sarah Griffiths. Sarah’s stories developed the children’s awareness of emotions and the strategy of reframing them, as well as developing their reading for pleasure and encouraging them to write in imaginative ways.
