The children enjoyed being outside and discussing the symbolism of water. They wrote down different ideas in chalk and then washed them away, leaving the two that they believed were most important.

The class used different equipment to measure area and perimeter. Outside, we used the measuring wheels.

The children have been really enjoying their tag rugby this term.

The class enjoyed using water colours and were representing the different aspects of Spirituality.

Once again, the class were superb in their Children of the World Assembly.

We were very fortunate to visit the PIETY Centre. After a lovely long walk in the sunshine, we were treated to a great tour and information session by Hichem.

We were very honoured to be sung the Muslim call to prayer. 

The video link explains the story behind the prayer and Hichem singing.

All the class enjoyed their 10 minute circuits with the Olympian High Jumper

We were visited by Raina this week, who told us all about Islam. 

Welcome Back !

This term, our topic is all about the Anglo-Saxons.

We will be making a Saxon village, singing songs, performing poetry and much, much more.


Be ready for Digidog!

As part of our ongoing commitment to e-Safety, the children will be bringing Digidog home this year. Every week, a child is selected to look after him, to show how they keep safe when using technology at home. Some pictures and brief words would be great and we can showcase the

'Digidog Diaries' here.

School Council Elections


The class thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the democratic process last week. They all thought about the skills and qualities needed as a School Council member and nine children bravely put themselves up for election.


The children had a maximum of 30 seconds to pitch their reasons for being elected.


Waiting patiently, the class voted at the class Polling Station by placing an X against the name of one boy and one girl. 


The outcome of the vote was announced at the end of the day once all the ballot papers had been checked. There was only one vote between the winners.


Watch the videos as the drama unfolded through the day!

Games and P.E.


The class have had a very active start to the term and we have been lucky to get outside to play some games and start developing tennis skills.
