Welcome to the Habbit Factory

The Habbit Factory have run after school sessions at Mead for many years and are now able to reopen their community workshops in the MySpace Centre and the Salvation Army hall in Petersfield Avenue.

Year 6 swimming

 Dear Parents / Carers,

RE: Year 6 Swimming Lessons. 

Swimming lessons for Year 6 will begin on Monday 10th May 2021.

Swimming lessons will be every Monday morning and we will be walking to the swimming pool.

Children need to bring a swimming costume (not a bikini) or trunks and a towel. A swimming hat will be provided to them by the school which they will need to bring with them every week. If your child loses their hat there will be a £1.00 charge for a new one. 

All children are required to attend swimming each week in Year 6 as this is part of the curriculum. Only under very special circumstances would we agree to a child not participating and in this instance we would expect a letter from the parent/carer with a valid reason.

Kind regards,

Mrs Keen 

Year 6 Lead

Year 3 Build Pyramids!

Year 3 Build Pyramids!

As part of our current topic on Ancient Egypt in year 3, this week we learnt all about pyramids! After learning about how and why they were built and what could be found inside the pyramids, we had a go at writing our own secret message in hieroglyphics:

Paige's (NI) secret message!

After this, we made our own pyramids! Firstly, we coloured our pyramid nets in. As we had discovered that pyramids were made of sand stone, we made sure to use appropriate colours:

Tommy and Junior (NI) colouring in their pyramids.

Next, we carefully cut around our pyramid net.

After this, we folded and stuck our pyramids together:

Here are some examples of our finished pyramids!

Even though we had a short week at school, we still had lots of fantastic learning throughout the week. Congratulations to all of the Year 5 children that received certificates.
