For our fantastic finish to gallery rebels we invited a textile artist, Tania Groombridge, in to work with all year 6. Tania introduced the children to working with hot wax pots and silk paints to create individual artistic letters of their first name.

The children were amazing in their ability to colour mix and control the hot wax with brushes on silk fabric. Each piece was completely unique and beautiful. Tania, who has worked with Secondary and foundation degree students was very impressed by the children's talents - well done!

Each piece is going to be sewn together to create a unique collaborative patchwork quilt, celebrating Year 6 2017-18. This will then be displayed in school for future pupils, staff, parents and visitors to enjoy and appreciate.

A huge well done to all Year 6 and a big thank you to Tania.

Yesterday, Thursday 14th June 2018 Year 6 walked down to Rushden to cheer the start of the national women's cycling tour from Rushden to Daventry.

It was a very exciting day and we took part in lots of fantastic activities - many thanks to all those who took part and helped set this up.

Year 6 were especially pleased when the total distances of the fixed cycling races were totalled as we came first and second! Well done to all, it was worth pedalling as fast as you could for 2 minutes, rest, then another for half an hour! Brilliant stamina.

Buzz, buzz, buzz was the sound of the children as they watched the beekeeper in awe. A busy start to our buzztastic science week, shared with the Infants.

The children were fascinated by the history of beekeeping in ancient times, through to now how fascinating a bee's life is. They especially enjoyed tasting the honey - collected fresh from the honeycomb that morning.
