Team Prestbury at the Cheltenham Park Run
Year 6 children have been learning about keeping our bodies and minds healthy and happy. On Sunday 8th March, many children ran or walked 2km at Junior Parkrun. Lets hope they develop healthy habits that last a lifetime.

Y5 Control Workshop
Children in Y5 took part in a computer control workshop run by STEMworks and supported by actual engineers. The children were challenged to build and then program their robots to complete a series of tasks for which they received points. The winning teams will look forward to a trip to GE Aviation to learn more about being engineers. Skills such as problem solving, team work and perseverance were on show from all the children to complete this tricky yet fun activity.
Y6 STEM Workshops - gallery here
Year 6 enjoyed their STEM workshops where they had to design and build themed carnival floats made from KNEX. All the models were judged and the winning pair of children will represent our school at a design event at Renishaw’s Innovation Centre later in the year.
Y5 share their knowledge of 'Forces' with Y2! See Gallery here.
As part of their science topic on forces, the children in Year 5 devised games that involved one of friction, air resistance or water resistance. To test these games out, the children in Year 2 came to the Junior School and had a go! Each of the games were run by the older children and scientific explanations were given to the younger children to help them understand what forces were at work.
Y3 Christmas Production of 'Straw and Order' - see latest gallery here.
An unusual property dispute calls year three into action! Our tremendous cast of actors successfully got to the bottom of what seemed to be a straight forward case. However, with the distractions of “mastermind” style game shows, dancing sheep and singing stars all seemed far from ordinary. Yet through the commotion that unfolded, the presence of a newly born Jesus made all clear to see. Our poignant message to live in peace and harmony with one another was successfully delivered through donkeys and cows. We are so proud of all the year three performances and all the hard work and dedication that went on behind the scenes. Over and out… BASE CAMP!
Open The Book - The Christmas Story!

Jonathan Jungle visits Y6 - see the latest gallery here!
Jonathan’s Jungle Roadshow visited Y6 on Tuesday and they spent a fantastic day encountering a range of rainforest creatures. They also learnt about so much science based on the animals’ habitats, adaptations, classification and reproduction. You’ll really enjoy these photos!
