    06/05/21 - The Day the Chairs Quit! Today did not start like any other day. Today the chairs quit. They'd had enough of the terrible life they have been subject to over the past months and called a strike! The children arrived to the classroom emptied of chairs, save for the picket lines in the corners of the room. The message from the Classroom Chair's Association was clear - get your act together or we're gone for good! The children then had until break to plan and write persuasive letters to address the concerns raised by the Chair's Association and encourage their swift return to active service. It didn't take long before the discomfort set in and the children realised the support they'd be missing if they failed in their task. The stakes couldn't have been higher! Luckily, after an hour's writing and a little bit of editing, the Chair's Association were convinced their working conditions would improve moving forward, and all was well in time for Maths.

    26/04/21 - We had a very informative visit from PC Weedon who taught us about online safety, PEGI ratings and social media rules!

    22/04/21 - Happy Summer Term!

    Our new topic, ‘Raging Seas’, is both Geography and History based. In History, the children will be learning about the infamous sinking of the Titanic in 1912. The children will learn about passengers who sailed on the ship, and through this we will be learning about the lifestyle, attitudes and experiences of society at this time. We will also be learning about modern day Cruise ships, as well as about a famous person in history called Grace Darling.

     

     

    Have a lovely summer. Enjoy some family time together. Term starts for pupils on Monday 6th September. (Reception on Wednesday 8th)
