The whole of our academy, The Rivers MAT, took part in a day of activities following the theme of ‘bonfire’.
Each year group had lots of fun and everyone completed at least one science experiment. We shared photographs of amazing experiences with the rest of the schools in the academy and enjoyed looking at theirs.

No Pens Day Wednesday
At Cranham, we took part in No Pens Day Wednesday. This day was all about thinking of ways we can learn and record our thinking, without the use pf pencils!
Each year group took part in a range of creative and exciting activities.
Times Table Rock Stars Launch Day
To launch Times Tables Rockstars at Cranham, staff and pupils spent the day dressed as our avatars. From blow up guitars to crazy hair, everyone made a fantastic effort with their outfits.
In assembly, we held a staff and pupil challenge, battling against each other in hopes of achieving the best time.
