Our KS1 Balfour Beatty drawing competition winners!
All of the children entered the Balfour Beatty competition and had to draw either a 'house of the future' or a 'dream house'.
Everyone who entered received a prize, but Sarah and her team chose two winners from each class to receive extra special prizes.
The Queen is 90!
We will be celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's 90th Birthday on Friday June 10th.
We will be having a picnic lunch outside and decorating the playground in red, white and blue.
The picnic sounds great. There will be sandwiches, wraps and rolls, salad, crisps, jelly, ice-cream and strawberries.
Some of the money we spend will be coming out of school fund contributions.
At 2.30, we will be stopping to watch a special live broadcast on the internet, all about the Queen, called 'Happy Birthday, Your Majesty'.

FREE THE CHILDREN
5M have been involved in raising money for charity with Free The Children campaign. Earlier in the year the children travelled to Wembley Arena for WE day to celebrate their achievements.
During the year 5M have raised an amazing £926.74 for charity! The fund raising still continues and they are hoping to reach the £1000 target before long.
The children have decided to donate the funds to Macmillan Cancer Support, the World Wildlife Fund and to buy 3 or maybe 4 goats for the Free the Children campaign, supporting disadvantaged children across the world.
We are so very proud of all their hard work and commitment. Fantastic work 5M!
The Iron Man - A Visit from the West End Theatre Company
Children in KS2 have had a visit from a professional dancer from the West End Theatre Company this week. Each class had a short workshop with Sam, the dancer, working on the theme of The Iron Man, a story written by Ted Hughes. The children thoroughly enjoyed the challenge as the photos and video clips below show.
Free The Children
Class 5M have been involved with 'Free The Children' charity throughout the year. As part of their involvement they were invited to Wembley arena in London to celebrate We Day. The children made an early start as we had to be in London for half past nine in the morning! We listened to inspirational speakers, pop groups, solo singers and dancers. The children behaved as only Anglesey children can - perfectly! Here are some of the photos taken on the day. To find out more about We Day and Free The Children go to their website www.freethechildren.com and get involved!
