You may have seen this amazing film that was recorded on our school’s CCTV just as the clock hit midnight at the start of Christmas Day…

Well, at the start of today, things got even more exciting for Year 5 when Mr Payne arrived, holding the present that had been left under the tree – it was only marked for the attention of Year 5, wasn’t it!

We were all very excited to find out what was in the box – what could Father Christmas have brought to Year 5 that was so important??

We were AMAZED!!!  Inside the box was a small, perfectly formed and ready to fly DRONE!!!  Wowzers!  This very exciting surprise had the very useful impact of completely undermining the conversation that had been happening about learning within Year 5 (…!!) and all of the children started to chat excitedly about what they could do with the drone, what they could learn and how much fun they could have.  It looks like Father Christmas may just have changed the curriculum direction for Year 5 – hold onto your hats, it looks like we are going flying!!!
