Wow! This year has really flown, we can hardly believe we are approaching the end of year 5! What a good year it has been. Some of our personal highlights are....

> Mrs Rowe enjoyed working with John from Monkton Nature Reserve, "receiving a message from the International Space Station was simply out of this world!"

>Mrs Stow's highlight was having spear wresting matches with a real Viking spear. We really showed off our muscles! 

> Visiting the Turner Gallery and seeing amazing artwork by Katie Patterson.

> Watching each and every one of our amazing year 5 children achieve.

> Mr Miller really enjoyed our practical lesson about the digestive system. Can you remember this experiment?
