Mr Speechly is leaving the school forever in less than 4 weeks. He is clearly upset to be leaving!
In Autumn 2, the Year 5 Otters went on a role-play trip to Hatfield House, in order to have an audience with Henry VIII in person. They had to learn a traditional Tudor Song - "The Hunt is Up" (please ask them to sing this for you). They performed this song to Henry and were, thankfully, not beheaded!! We were able to explore the grounds of the manor Elizabeth I lived in, and all students returned back to school suitably exhausted!
In Autumn 1, Year 5 went on a trip to Lea Valley, in an attempt to locate and identify Minibeasts within their natural habitats.
Additionally, we had a competition through the woods, using maps and compasses in order to find Orienteering targets. Mr Speechly's group (The Golden Jets) were victorious, however all groups performed very commendably.
