As part of our PSHE curriculum and linked to the celebration of the 800 years of the Magana Carta, Year 5 had the honour to be visited by Bracknell Forest Councillor Mr Marc Brunel-Walker.
He explained to us what his job is, how the council works and gave us some inside information of what Bracknell Town Centre will look like after the regeneration takes place.
The children listened very carefully and had the chance to ask their own questions to Mr Brunel-Walker.
We even were invited to visit the Mayor's Chamber in the near future! Watch this space!
To make learning French more interesting and enable the children to continue learning at home, we have subscribed to a languages website, full of games and fun ways to practise.
The website is http://www.linguascope.com/
(DO NOT share these details)
I would like to encourage all the children to use the website at home and make the most of this fantastic resource.

The children in Year 5 were taught about the government E-Safety awareness campaign using this slogan:
They then made some e-safety leaflets for the rest of the school, to act as a reminder about staying safe. Please click on the links below to see some of their efforts!
Following on from Mr Davies assembly yesterday, the children made Comic Strip versions of the four school rules to help remind the whole school community. They used a program called 2Publish+. Click on each thumbnail below to see their impressive work!
