On Wednesday this week, Year 2 and 3 were lucky enough to have a special visit from Adrian Barnett, who usually lives deep in the Amazon rainforest!  He spoke to Year 2 about different habitats and how animals adapt to these habitats. Year 3's talk was all about the Stone Age where they discovered how humans developed over millions of years and how important the Stone Age is to our society today.

All of the children asked such great questions and learnt so many facts.  Many thanks to Adrian!

This week was a very important week for 2M as it was their class assembly all about The Great Fire of London. They spent the previous week learning all of their lines and the songs. On Wednesday, the children performed it to the whole school and 2M’s parents. They performed their parts with confidence and were so proud of themselves! 

Thank you to all of the parents who came to watch the assembly.

This Wednesday, Years 3 and 4 had a character creating workshop with acclaimed author, Cliff McNish. Among his wide repertoire of books are ‘Breathe’, ‘Going Home’ and the ‘Doomspell Trilogy’.

In his Year 4 workshop, the children had the opportunity to create their own characters for a story, ensuring their main character had a HUGE problem to make their story gripping! Everyone enjoyed the workshops and will be using the techniques in their lessons next week.
