We had an absolutely amazing time at STEMfest at the Villa Marina on Tuesday. The children were impeccably behaved and really enjoyed taking part in lots of hands on STEM activities. Some of our favourite activities included playing on VR headsets, building a real suspension bridge and making and racing our own boats out of plastic bottles.

Well done to our Year Five school council representatives who took part in a sponsored beach clean at Douglas Beach on Thursday. Some of the more interesting litter we found included a plastic fish and a car key!

We have had such a positive first full week in Year Five and have got well and truly stuck in with our learning!

In literacy, we have been learning an extract from Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll. The story is set in London during The Blitz and we have been using actions to help us remember the words.
