Carrot cookies

As a part of our WW2 topic, Year 3 have been testing a recipe for carrot cookies. We worked together in our groups, carefully following the recipes and the end result was fantastic. The children really enjoyed tasting the crunchy, scrumptious cookies that they had made.

Sainsbury’s Games Gymnastics competition

On Friday 29th April, 2 teams from Freeman’s entered the Wellingborough and District section of the Sainsbury’s Schools Games in gymnastics.  The children had worked hard to learn the 2 set routines which they performed superbly, as well as fabulous attempts on the vault.  Congratulations to the Year 3 and 4 team, who came second in their competition, and to the year 5 and 6  team who won!  Both teams move forward into the county finals at the end of May.  Well done to both teams, such fabulous effort from all of you,  you were incredibly well behaved and so encouraging to your team mates and other teams too.  A special mention to the Year 5 and 6 team who were also awarded the determination award for the day.  year 5 6 gym girls year 5 6 gym competitors year 5 6 gym year 3 4 competitors year 3  4 gym

A huge thank you!

Wow! Thank you to everyone who has helped raise over £550 for Brain Tumour Research and Mikey’s war!  The children (and staff!) looked amazing, had lots of fun taking part in the hat inspired activities, and enjoyed some delicious cake too.

Mrs Graves has also had huge amounts of fun finding a different hat to wear everyday, thanks to Mrs Sadler’s challenge.

Thank you to everyone for supporting these amazing causes.
