This week year 6 went to the Imperial War Museum to learn more about their topic of World War 2. They were totally amazed by the historical artefacts throughout the museum. One child said, "I was lucky enough to meet a man named Peter who had fought in World War 2 and his father fought in World War 1. He told us a few stories about what it was like back then!"

The whole year represented our school beautifully and have a fantastic trip. Big thank you to the Mums and Grans that came with us!

This week Year 6 have been learning all about Remembrance Day and why it is so important that we never forgot. During the week they have had the chance to explore why we have memorials, hold a two minute silence and why we wear poppies. Today they led the Key Stage 2 assembly and shared some of their learning.

To end the assembly,  the children did a beautiful reading of 'In Flanders Field'.

This week Year 5 had an exciting writing session with a very famous author named Cliff McNish. Cliff has written a range of children's books including 'Going Home', 'The Doomspell' and 'My Friend Twigs'.

He  introduced us to some of his famous stories and how he manages to create new and exciting characters for all his stories. We then had a go at creating our own- it was great! Thanks for visiting us Cliff!
