This term’s learning


Invaders and Settlers

This week, children started a new science topic, recapping systems of the body and focussing on the circulatory system. In history, they looked at the influence of Anglo Saxons on place names and the meanings of these. Mr Beavis made a welcome return for the first cricket lesson of the half term and then Joe Roebuck, Olympic athlete, told us all about his amazing swimming career. With the A team footballers playing a tournament on Thursday and Sports Day on Friday, it’s been a very sporty week here at Bushmead.
