We entered the Rolls-Royce Engineering Design Challenge 2015. This year our brief was to design, fund and build a cable car and tower building. We are delighted to announce that we were placed FIRST on day 1, Saturday 6th June. Congratulations to our wonderful winning team - we are very proud of you all !!
Today the Reception children had an opportunity to see behind the scenes at Tesco! We visited the warehouse, delivery area, fridge, freezer, bakery and deli. They then used their shopping lists to buy items for the garden party. The children were amazing, using their reading, communication and numeracy skills.

We would also like to thank Swarkestone Garden Centre for their kind donation of plant pots for our garden area.
Today we visited the National Space Centre in Leicester. There was lots of fun to be had, including launching our own rockets and watching a show in the Planetarium. Needless to say we were all exhausted after our adventure! A huge thank you to all of the adults involved. Take a look at some of our photos (captured by Mrs Oughton and Mrs Long)...
This afternoon we ventured out in search of clues hidden by Miss Kirkley. We had to look carefully at each photograph and walk to where the picture had been taken. We managed to identify lots of different human and physical features of the environment, and even had time for a play on the park.
As part of our ''New Life' topic we have been looking at what makes birds such a formidable branch of the natural world.
Today we are using our technical knowledge of birds, coupled with our creative engineering skills to create an object that can fly (glide). Of course, we are competing to see which one can fly the furthest...
