Music - look at our Music leaders - they had to keep the pulse and we had to follow their lead.

Empathy Day

In our P4C lesson this week we continued to look at racism related to our RE learning. We listened to the story "Let's Talk About Race." We had a lot of discussion around this and found the story very insightful. We agreed that we are all the same and we should always treat everyone equal. 

Take a look at our learning in our P4C book. 


Watch the You Tube video below to listen to the story. We know you will enjoy it.

Reading Award


A big congratulations to Niamh who has completed her book mark for super reading at home. 

We are all very proud of you. 


Please find the below the information from the SAT's Parents Meeting being held on Tuesday 7th March.7

Mrs Toshkezi 

Today in Design Technology Mrs Toshkezi gave us the challenge of building the strongest bridge which would have to hold a cup of coins.

About 10 minutes into our construction Mrs Toshkezi asked us to consider what was working and what was not working. We realised that the shorter the columns of the bridge the stronger it would be. We also thought about how the distance between each end of the bridge might affect the strength.

We discussed that our bridge needs to withstand forces pushing down upon them.  The bridge must be able to endure tension and compression.

Some of us where more successful than others. 

The strongest bridge built was by Mason, Ava, Brooke, Samuel and Denzel. 

Great job guys! 

Design Technology - Who can make the strongest bridge?

My stars this week are: Brooke for excellent retrieval skills in our Whole Class Reading lessons.

Well done Redwood. 



In English we are reading the story of Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo. Here is a link to the audio version that I thought you might like to listen to. This will help you with your writing this half term.


We are going to be writing a character description about Grendel so listen carefully to the way he is described in the story. 

What adjectives are used to describe him? 

What impression do you get about Grendel? 

What other ways could you describe Grendel? 









Our first class read this year is "WONDER."


Here is the Blurb. 

"I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse."



Want to get started? 

Let's hope so!
