Children in Need Day - Scavenger Hunt


We have been running around the school searching to lots of different things today on our Children in Need scavenger hunt. 



In PE we have ben doing gymnastics and practicing our climbing skills.

World Poetry Day


We had a whole school visit from the Poet, Paul Lyalls who shared some of his work with us. We then had our very own workshop where we wrote ‘What If?’ poems using everybody’s great ideas – we really thought outside of the box!

Brazilian Music Workshop


As part of Black History Month, we had a Brazilian percussion workshop. The class were taught how to clap rhythms, sing songs to a beat and finally play a samba on the drums. The pupils also learnt first-hand from Marcus what life is like in Brazil and where the country is located in the world.
