- Rocket Cars
Race day! All of year 5 assembled at the safety line in eager anticipation to watch their cars race. The army inserted the rockets to provide the thrust and the children provided the loud count down and cheers.
- Listen to KCFM this afternoon.
Some of our children have been interviewed by KCFM. The broadcast will be 3.50pm this afternoon.
- Bloodhound - day 2
Year 5 began to sketch their initial ideas for their rocket cars. Children worked in pairs or groups of three to discuss and agree a final design – negotiation and compromise were key.
Preparations are under way to design and build the fastest rocket car. Y5 are working on the Bloodhound SSC project to combine science, engineering and maths in the hope of producing the fastest rocket powered car.
- All packed up and ready to come home.
Y6 residential pupils are on their way.

We asked our SEND children to complete a questionnaire to help us to understand their views, what they perceive as barriers and what support they find useful. Click on the link to see their responses and what we will change as a results. Pupil Questionnaire
Extreme Weather Arrangements
During extreme weather, when the site may be covered with snow or ice, we will only open the main gate on Bridlington Road and pupils will go straight into the school halls with their bags and coats. Pupils will then be collected by their teacher and escorted safely to their classrooms at 9am.
We would ask for your help in not bringing children to school before 8.50 where possible.
Should the occasion arise when we do not have enough staff on site to safely open we will make use of our text messaging service, website, Radio Humberside and Viking FM to make announcements.
