As part of our topic learning about The Great Fire of London, the children used their interviewing techniques to make a news report video.

Mrs Oram is supporting positive play in KS1 and created some fabulous scavenger hunts on our playground. The children have loved them and can’t wait to start making their own.
We spent time outdoors today, feeling calm and relaxed. We really concentrated on 5 things we noticed, 4 things we could touch, 3 things we could hear, 2 things we could smell and 1 thing we could taste. We enjoyed sharing our experiences and ideas.
Today we celebrated our children’s successes during special mentions. A wonderful assembly. We are so proud of you all.
Feeding the chickens is an absolute joy, although they did get somewhat excited when we opened the gate! Luckily, we had kind assistance from some of the older children and we were able to give them clean water and checked they had plenty of food.
We designed and created a printing block today that allowed us to practise some relief printing in Y2 👍🏻😀
We love working with our Chinese partners as part of an international project. After exchanging ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ stories, we have learned about a traditional Chinese story called ‘The Three Monks.’ We learned the story in English, then the children were really enthusiastic about reading the story in Chinese. Watch our video to see […]
