Exciting English in KS1

7th Oct 2020

When we returned to school in September, children in KS1 were excited to find a letter in a bottle from Jack and Nancy, our story characters from the book of the same name by Quentin Blake. They informed us that they had been on an unexpected journey to a faraway island, after being blown away when a giant gust of wind caught their umbrella! We wondered how the letter had reached us and thought perhaps one of the parrots from the story had brought it. Children have been busy learning the story and using it as inspiration to write their own journey stories.

We've had a fantastic start to the term in years 3 and 4 with our topic about the Stone Age.  We've learnt about what life was like in the 3 different periods of time within the Stone age: Paleolithic, Mesolithic, and Neolithic. We've made our own tools, drawn our own pictures inspired by cave paintings and created our own headdresses.

The Great Fire of London in KS1

13th Feb 2020

As a finale to our Great Fire of London topic, KS1 were excited to recreate the fire in Pudding Lane using the models we made earlier in the week. We were shocked to see how quickly it spread from the bakery (especially with the help of the wind)! Removing one of the models then helped us understand how exploding or pulling down the houses helped it to stop.

Year 3/4 music afternoon

Since September, half of the year 3 have been learning the violin and half of the year 4s have been learning the ocarina. It was lovely to perform to the parents before we swap the groups over and they move on to composition, musical appreciation and learning about the instruments of the orchestra. We look forward to the rest of the phase learning their new instruments after half term!
