The children were very excited today, when Ben came in to showcase the Rocksteady band workshops. There was lots of clapping and joining in - especially when our superstars joined the band! Your child can sign up to band workshops on a Monday.
Check out the children rocking the drums, keyboard, electric guitar and vocals -
On Friday, the School Council worked hard raising money for Mrs Bird's London Marathon charity Rett UK.
They made and displayed posters, then sold their own home-made lemonade in school. It was very popular!
'It was actually really nice!' Hart
'It's a bit sour,' Tyler
From our non-uniform day and lemonade sale we are over the moon to confirm we raised a total of £425.99 for an amazing cause!
Thank you again for your support - we couldn't do it without you!
Year Four had a great time launching our Revolution topic about the Victorians. We found the strict classrooms intimidating (but fun) and really had to concentrate on our handwriting so we didn't make any mistakes. In the afternoon, we were lucky enough to see a steam train pass, before we became historians and found out about the Victorians by looking at a range of resources. We've had a great day!
'It was really funny when Mrs Bloomer was a strict teacher.' Thomas
'It was difficult to write with my right hand when I'm really left-handed.' Abigail
'The steam train was so loud! It went past really quickly.' Sofia
It's all GO at Gardening Club!

Year One are Helping the Hedgehogs!
In year one we have been learning about woodland animals and their habitats this week. We found out that hedgehog numbers are declining because their habitats are being damaged or even destroyed.
So, we decided to help our hedgehogs!
Today we designed and made hedgehog homes - thinking about all the features the homes would need to keep the hedgehogs safe, warm and camouflaged.
The children really enjoyed creating these super homes and they did a fantastic job - well done year one!
As part of reading our class book 'The Fatal Fire', we sat around our firepit to read the next part of the story. We put paper cubes at edge of the fire, imaging they were the houses in the story to see how the fire spread. It was fascinating to see how quickly the houses caught light. We wrote lots of phrases from our experience, such as 'lingering smoke', 'flames danced like ballerinas' and 'crackling like popcorn'.
Year one have enjoyed a super start to the new school year...
We have been exploring our school and writing information posters.
We have to learning about seasonal changes and looking for the signs of Autumn.
This week we’ve had an exciting delivery from the Jolly Postman! We can’t wait to find out more about him and his friends!😁
