Science week

As you can see, we have had a fantastic week full of new and exciting learning! Thank you to all of the parents who gave up their time to make it such a success, it wouldn't be possible without you.

World Book Day

The children all looked fantastic in their costumes and we had a fun-filled day of activities! Firstly, the children had to decorate a book mark with a prize for the best bookmark going to a pupil from KS1 and KS2 next week. Then I set the children a challenge of listing book titles that began with each letter of the alphabet-I was really impressed with the number of children that managed to complete this. We then headed to year 3, where the children paired up and listened to each other read.
After break the whole school gathered to show off their outfits and take part in a book themed quiz, led by Miss Lawrence. 
After reading some descriptions of much loved characters written by well-known authors, the children had a go at writing their own this afternoon. Like all good authors, they were encouraged to adopt a 'show, not tell' approach to their descriptions. Finally, we were treated to a story read in Spanish by Noa and her mum.
For homework this week, the children must tak…

Outdoor classroom

In English, the children are writing a story based on a short film called Alma-the main character who is a doll. Using this as their inspiration, the children went in search of natural materials in the outdoor classroom to create their own doll for the toy shop, the main setting of the film. They will use their creations to form the basis of a piece of writing later on in this unit of work.

French Day

After learning about the Eiffel Tower, year 6 enjoyed trying to replicate the famous landmark using spaghetti and sweets.


The value of the month in February is forgiveness and year 6 were chosen to complete a display board in the entrance hall to mark this. After looking at different stories of forgiveness in the Bible, the children wrote and illustrated prayers asking God to guide them in forgiving others. They thought really deeply about this and produced some excellent pieces of work.

The Gilhams

As I am sure you will know by now, we have been studying the heart in science this half term. On Wednesday, we welcomed Mr and Mrs Gilham who spoke to year 6 about the structure of the heart, how the heart works and the importance of keeping your heart healthy. The children then listened to each others heartbeats using a stethoscope and measured their blood pressure. A massive thank you to Mr and Mrs Gilham for giving up their time and teaching us so much.
