dinoYear 6 are busy reconstructing dinosaurs as a timed challenge. John, our caretaker used our new jigsaw to cut out the pieces from MDF using a template. It took him ages! The children have worked collaboratively to follow a set of instructions and create a model dinosaur. The best time so far is just under 25 minutes.

In support of the campaign group ‘Brake’ we walked around the field today as a school. Our banner urged drivers to slow down to 20 mph in built up areas and around schools as a means of saving lives in any future accidents. It was wet and windy and our banner got a little soggy!Brake

During the half term, Year 5 created their own African Music using drums and other percussion instruments.  Some of the girls then got together and produced a dance to go with the music.  The results were FANTASTIC!!!   Look for yourselves.

Wordle: Charlestown primary


A wordle is a program that takes all the words off a website or document and then makes a pattern from them.  The bigger the word the more often it has been used.   I think this says alot about our school and our values.   Click on the picture to see the whole wordle.
