Safer Internet Day
Mrs Radia kick started our week by introducing us to this year's theme: Inspiring Change
We looked at the importance of remaining safe and kind when using online platforms and group chats.
The children in Spruce had great fun preparing and making their soup. We learnt different cutting techniques and the importance of hygiene when cooking.
The children rounded their lesson off with an additional lunch by tasting their recipe.
Thank you to the adults at home who let us borrow some equipment!

Bletchley Park Trip
Wednesday 15th November
Year 6 were given the fantastic opportunity to go back in time and visit Bletchley Park - the home of the Enigma Code breakers during WW2! We visited the mansion and Alan Turing's office - he still had his coffee cup chained to his radiator! We had a tour and looked around the museum. Lastly, we had a workshop in which the children were able to use a real Enigma machine from WW2 - worth in excess of £300,000!
