Firstly I would like to a big well done to Thames Class for organising and running such a fantastic Enterprise sale. All of the businesses worked hard to produce some wonderful products and stalls. I was really pleased to see all the businesses pull together to try and sell as many products as they could during the sale. I was also very impressed with how confidently they interacted with their customers and how they used a variety of sales techniques. Well done Thames Class!
I would also like to thank any parents and children who came and purchased items from the sale.
This week in Science we made straw rockets and then investigated how we could get our rockets to fly further. Across the class we investigated lots of different variable including how the number of fins, size of fins, shape of fins and the positions of the fins affect how far a straw rocket travels.
Last week Thames Class kicked off the Enterprise Project by developing our ability to work in a team. Each time was given some newspaper and where challenged to build the tallest possible tower using newspaper only.
Thank you to the Year 6 leaders who helped to organise and lead the Interhouse Athletics Field Events competition with lower KS2 today. Take a look at some of the photos:
This week Thames Class enjoyed sharing their experiences at PGL Liddington with the rest of the school and their parents, particularly their favourite memory. They produced some fantastic models and PowerPoint's as part of their assembly.

Well done Thames Class for a brilliant SATs week! You showed the Appleton Animal Attitudes all week! You were determined, resilient, took responsibility and worked together to ensure you could all achieve the best! Thames Class finished the week with some well deserved treats which included watching a film, ice creams, popcorn and a trip to the park!
We hope all your parents are as proud of you as we are! Well done and enjoy a earned break over the weekend!
