Year 2 pupils have been fascinated by the life story of Mary Seacole, particularly her resilience in overcoming challenging situations and her contribution to the nursing profession. Pupils have completed excellent work that shows empathy and understanding.
Over the last few weeks, the children have been finding out about Remembrance Day. They have been learning about why Remembrance Day is important and why it is commemorated. Each child made their own poppy. The poppies were displayed on the classroom window. Here are some photo of our lovely displays.
Over the past week Y3 were set a project for their home learning afternoon task! After starting our DT project in school Y3 took home their designs and were challenged to make a Roundhouse from anything they could find around the house! Take a look at our amazing models.
Year 3 have been learning all about the Stone Age. We imagined we had travelled back in time and had to scavenge for our food just like they did in the Stone Age. We had to decide what would be a threat or an asset to us. Some things could even be both! This week we have designed our own round house and gathered materials that we could use to build one. Keep your eyes peeled to see what we create.
There are some great upcoming Live Forums on Khoot for young people and parents to access during October at http://kooth.com/

We can’t wait to read your stories!
Our KS2 children made some cards for WW2 veterans. We wanted to thank them for the sacrifices they made for us and the courage they showed in fighting for our country.
Children from our Nursery had a fantastic time celebrating VE day with their families!
Last week our Year 3 children completed lots of research at home to learn all about VE Day and what this day means to Britain. They wrote poems and designed posters to share their pride in our country and honour the men and women of WW2.
They even made fabulous decorations to help celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day on Friday. We are sad that we could not celebrate this important day together in school but we love seeing all your hard work at home! Thank you to everyone who has shared their fantastic work with us, it really does put a big smile on our faces to see it!
