Class 3 have worked so hard to learn the story of The Great Kapok Tree. Through the process, the children have been able to imitate the language and structure that they need to write their own dilemma stories. I'm sure you will agree that they sound fantastic!
Year 1 & 2 enjoy learning about jellyfish. Super performance for the community.
Starting the term off with Poetry helps to develop creativity and builds a language bank for pupils. We hope you enjoy this energetic poem.
We are delighted to have Kate Long as one of our fabulous support staff. Kate is a real ambassador for reading and writing and a key person as we move forward with a year of raising standards in reading. Kate always says she would never have become a writer if she wasn't a huge reader, reading is key in being a successful writer as it aids creativity. Kate has written eight novels, a TV drama, articles for newspapers, short stories for magazines. Kate talks about how to become a reader in this clip.
Working together is an important part of learning you need to: listen to others; say when you don’t understand; be kind when you disagree; explain things to help others and be tolerant.
To be a successful learner you need to persevere even when you feel like the task is too difficult, this is when the real growth happens. You will have a true feeling of success when you conquer a difficult task. You need to: work hard; practise lots; keep going; try new strategies; ask for help; start again and take brain breaks.
Learning to learn takes discipline. This video is about how to manage concentration and give your self the best opportunity to learn. Learning takes effort.
The children were set with the challenge to make a video to show how we can make a difference. It is the simple things in life that make the world better for everyone. This was made for our Harvest celebration. We used the song Do Something by Matthew West and used his video on YouTube as inspiration. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
