Year 5 had a brilliant day at Jodrell Bank on Tuesday.
As well as looking at the giant Lovell Telescope and
exhibits, they had some great immersive lessons.
The first session was in the inflatable planetarium where
they could explore the night sky and constellations.
The second session was our ‘Mars Rover’ challenge, where
each group had to design and build a system to safely land a space probe (or
‘an egg’ in laymen’s terms!)
A really great day, and even the weather was good!
Year 5 put on their amazing production of Macbeth at the
Zion Centre to great acclaim.
All their hard work paid off as they executed a faultless
performance which showed great confidence, skill and enjoyment.
All the children were buzzing with excitement, and parent’s
reviews were also glowing –
‘Wow! What a performance! It was flawless from start to
‘Watching our children taking part in such a big play and
fully succeeding was an enormous pleasure’
‘The cast of 2019 Macbeth were the consummate professional’
‘The play has been wonderful!! A brilliant performance of
