International Women’s Day

During International Women’s Day we celebrated influential women by creating posters and talking about why these women were special to us. Check out our pictures to see who inspires us. 

Three Little Pigs

The children have been very busy over half term creating some amazing things for our Three Little Pigs topic. They have been creating houses, writing stories and even running their own experiments! Very impressive πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

During Children’s Mental Health Week we talked a lot about how to keep our minds healthy, as well as our bodies. We discussed feelings and decided to make our own worry stones! ❀️

We have been reading one of our favourite stories ‘Owl Babies.’ We have been learning to retell the story and then using Talk for Writing strategies we wrote the story up independently. I’m very proud of the stories the children produced! Well done Poppies πŸ‘πŸΌ

We celebrated Chinese New Year by making dragons and trying some Chinese foods. We even tried using chopsticks! πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ 

Thursday 13th January

This week we have been looking at maps and symbols in our geography lessons. We had a lovely day today looking around our local area and finished the afternoon in the park 😊

Kingsley and Co Bookshop Visit


This week Year 1 and 2 children visited Kingsley and Co bookshop. This isn’t just any bookshop. It’s a magical bookshop and literary project based in The Strand complete with its very own time machine. The children took part in lots of different activities and even met the fantastic author Jude Lennon.  We made up our own stories, discovered a secret room hidden behind a bookcase and even got to choose a book to take home. We had an amazing day πŸ“š

Author Visit- Professor Elemental

This week we had a very special visitor. Author/ rapper Professor Elemental came to visit our school and helped us write some amazing raps. We had great fun and learnt how to rhyme and keep the beat. We then held our very own Poppy’s Got Talent and performed our raps. 


Poetry Day

To celebrate National Poetry Day on the 7th October we took part in lots of different activities. We had the inspiring author Paul Delaney visit and hold some poetry writing workshops. We also wrote our own poems, practised our rhyming skills and read some of the teachers favourite poems. 

This half term we have been learning all about Autumn. He have taken part in lots of Autumn activities and explored our school grounds looking for signs of Autumn. πŸ‚πŸ

Year 6 spent the afternoon with Year 1 in preparation for their Playground Buddy duties. We had great fun playing lots of different playground games and all showed great team work. Year 1 are very excited to have Year 6 buddies on the playground next week to support them during lunchtimes.
