  • Tuesday 6 October 2020 WORLD WAR II NEWS REPORTERS We have discovered that Year 6 are all budding news reporters! On finding out about the Evacuation from Dunkirk they held a press conference during which the posed challenging questions to a returning soldier, Winston Churchill, a brave fisherman and members of the public. They then worked incredibly hard on producing some outstanding news reports with a good depth of detail, dramatic language and a an appropriate style. This was a big project! Well done Year 6!

  • Wednesday 30 September 2020 Great Fire of London Historians As part of our project about The Great Fire of London, we have been learning about artefacts and the important role they play in piecing history together. We started off the learning by bringing in an object from home that we would save from a fire and using our presenting skills to talk about this to the class. We found out that most of our objects were special for similar reasons- they were sentimental, our favourite toy or made us feel safe. You can see pictures of some of our precious things below:
  • Tuesday 29 September 2020 Getting to know each other What a successful start to the year we have had in Nursery! All children are settling in well and learning our class routines and expectations.  It has been a real joy to get to know the children and their interests. We have been up to so many different and exciting activities including making our Christmas cards (!), playdough, painting, construction, small world and imaginative play, starting our PE lessons, Library day and music sessions with Mrs Johnson and much more – phew! It is also really lovely to see so many children coming in so enthusiastically and independently.  A big thank you to all parents for being patient with us as we learn all of your names and faces and also for ensuring that all personal items are clearly named. This has made things much easier for us all and is very much appreciated!  We look forward to a year of fun, laughter and learning.
