Our Harvest Festival was a joyful celebration introduced by our head boy and girl and Star anise class performed a poem. Rev. Philip Stevens came to say a prayer and give thanks for the food at harvest time. Thank you to everyone who contributed to our celebration, the donations of food will be sent to the homeless charity, Harbour Place.

Can I identify and represent the place value of each digit in a four-digit numbers?

The children had lots of fun today showing the value of each digit in four-digit numbers in a variety of ways. Miss Perrin set out a carousel activity with lots of different resources and the children had to use them to make four-digit numbers. We were able to make them very quickly by the time we had finished.

Can I create a freeze frame to depict a scene from a piece of text?

In Poppy class we are reading ‘The Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty. Jim (the street child) and his family are living in a room and their mother is sick and is near to death. Their landlord arrives to collect his rent but he is furious when he realises that have spent their last shilling on food. He is so angry that he tells the family to leave immediately. It is snowy outside and they have nowhere to go. What will they do and how will they survive?

After each group depicted their scene the class talked about how the groups had effectively shown their emotions through their bodies alone.

Learning about democracy

Today the school children voted to decide who the new Head Boy and Head Girl would be. All the candidates were very professional and prepared a presentation about why they would be perfect for the position. When we went back to class we set us a polling station where the children could choose their candidate and cast their vote. The children enjoyed having this experience and having a say on what happens at this school.
