Class 4 had a fantastic time exploring under the sea using virtual reality (VR) googles. We saw the different layers of the ocean and the animals that had adapted to live in each zone.
Class 4 were very excited to meet our new friends in class today. We have decided to call them Bubble and Squeak.
Class 5 have started their journey into space travel by researching existing rockets and the Apollo Program, generating ideas, planning and making their own paper rocket. What a space-tastic start!
In Maths we have started off the year by looking at place value.
Class 5 have started their new Science topic of forces. They have started the year off looking at measuring forces in newtons.
Class 5 had a space-tastic time using virtual reality to look at the different planets, the moon landing and the Milky Way Galaxy.
We hope you have had a wonderful summer break and we look forward to seeing the children safely back in school on Wednesday 4th September.
The Way Youth Zone will be hosting a “Meet your future classmates” event at The Way Youth Zone during the summer holidays and we would love for your year 6’s to be part of it. The aim of the event will be to address any concerns or worries that your current year 6 pupils may have during this big but exciting transition from Primary school to Secondary school. They will get the chance to make new friends, engage in team building activities, be competitive with our fun and messy challenge as well as create an interactive art piece which will help them to settle into their new school.
The event will take place throughout the six weeks holiday and will cost 50p for your students to attend. Upon completing the activities your students will then be able to engage in the other activities that The Way has to offer until 8.30pm - this includes; rock climbing, boxing, dance, sport and many more. All they need to do is check the timetable to see when their new school will be meeting up at The Way.
Class 2 have been sewing some fantastic sunflowers as part of their DT learning. Well done, they are beautiful!
Class 3 enjoyed their visit to Wroxeter. They learned about the baths and Elsa was in charge of the Roman coins that we could spend while we were there.

Thank you to everybody who supported us at our PTA summer fair this year. We had a fantastic time.
Thank you to everybody who came to our Harry Potter gallery of work. The children had had a fantastic time during the week and this reflected well in their work, which they were all extremely proud of. We raised a fantastic £210 towards our year 6 residential selling butterbeer and cakes.
Thank you for your continued support.
Class 1 and 2 had a wonderful day at the Safari Park. We were very lucky to see lots of animals and we especially enjoyed the sea lion show! Super behaviour from all children and a lovely day!
We had a fantastic as Palmers Cross turned into Hogwarts for our Harry Potter week! We kick started our week with a traditional Hogwarts's sorting hat ceremony, and then made our wands ready for the magic of science to begin. Children had a lovely time making potions, growing gummy bear, learning about owls, making model Hogwarts, creating hovering wizard hats and sending secret messages. We even had fun cooking cakes, chocolate frogs and making our very own butter beer.
Year 5 have loved this weeks theme. They have enjoyed converting wizard money to muggle money and working out the cost of wizard items in Maths. In English, we have acted out a part of Harry Potter, planned and have written their own play scripts. Finally, in Science they have created their own Hogwarts out of junk modelling, that needed to include: a catapult, a swimming pool and a working drawbridge. The castle also needed to be earthquake proof.
Class four had a very exciting and very sticky day today! We have made foamy troll toothpaste and Butter Beer slime!
Class 3 have been getting stuck in to their Science Week learning. They enjoyed starting the week off by creating their own wands. Their latest task was to create giant gummy bears for Honeyduke's Sweet Shop. They even wrote a set of instructions so that others can make their own giant gummy bears.'
Class 3 enjoyed learning about how chocolate changes when it solidifies after it has been melted. Our favourite part was testing that it tasted the same!
Class 3 finished Science Week by exploring how they could make a CD hover. They worked really well as a team and we even managed to race our hovering CDs.
The sun made a welcome appearance for our KS2 Sports Day. Thank you for coming to support the children; they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
