I can’t believe that we have come to the end of another Expedition and completed another fantastic final product. Our expedition for this term was ”How can a healthy lifestyle impact our body and mind?” We completed a history, science and DT case study. These subjects allowed us to explore how medicine has changed, the circulatory system and our cooking and baking skills. The children marvelled at the weird and wonderful things used to treat illnesses during the plague. They were even given the opportunity to gain a basic first aid certificate. During DT, they loved cooking and especially the tasting of the food. The children have been fortunate to have lots of opportunities to do hands on learning.
Our final product was to create an informative video for the public and as this was a trust product, we were all given a section to complete. Carcroft were allocated the mental health section of the video and I know this is a topic we spend lots of time on as we understand the importance of good mental health.
At the moment, we have been unable to confirm where this video will be played on a permanent basis but this is being discussed and negotiated. Once this has been confirmed, we will ensure that we inform you of this.
We hope you enjoy our Mental Health video for our final product

I can’t believe this year has come to an end but just like the children, I’m ready for the break in preparation for the next academic year.
What can I say about Crew Shields that I haven’t already said?
Crew Shields have shown many character traits that truly shows their level of maturity and how they have adapted crew and become a little family that looks out for each other. This year was tough at times but they have been resilient, mature and above all shown compassion, kindness and forgiveness. Amazing qualities to have and no doubt something they will continue to demonstrate in year 6.
I have been so privileged to have them as my crew especially after our time in year 3 was cut short. They have made coming to school an absolute pleasure. They’ve made me smile and laugh daily but also worked their socks off to be better versions of themselves. I am beyond proud of all their academic achievements but also their growth as individuals which are equally important.
I hope Crew Shields have an amazing summer as they have certainly earned it and I look forward to catching up with them when we return to school. Be safe and have fun!
We have managed to organise an extra 4 days of summer camp as the other two weeks have filled up so quickly. Please find the link below for Monday 22nd August – Thursday 25th August. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/382789011237
To thank the children for all their hard work this year, the Year 5 staff crew treated them to an afternoon of pizza and fun on the field. Mr Boswell and Mr Ibbotson very kindly brought in their pizza ovens, made the dough and prepared to make pizza to feed 50 children and of course the staff. I’m sure all the children would agree that they were delicious and much more enjoyable than a bar of chocolate.
The year 5 staff crew have been absolutely blown away by how hard the children have worked this year and all they have achieved. We know they will continue to achieve amazing things in year 6.
This morning Crew MI shared their final product from their expeditionary learning with parents. Thank you so much to all the parents that joined us, I know the children loved sharing the product with you along with all the work they had produced from the summer expedition. We are all super proud of what everyone has achieved this term. We also celebrated the children who have managed to get their work on display this term, some fantastic work produced.
