Well done to Iris, Ellen, Evie and Elva who led the Worship Assembly on Immigration on Monday. There was audience participation with lots of interesting conversation.
On Friday 11 January Dahl Class had their class exhibition. In the exhibition we sang The Fresh Prince of Bel Air with everyone singing or playing an instrument. Then we had some wonderful musicians playing their instruments brilliantly. We also had a Kahoot! quiz which all the parents too part in. Polly and Izzy played the heads, shoulders hips game and Nancy and Phoebe demonstrated and played the Minute Game.
Elliot showed the parents how good his handwriting is and the parents all wrote beautiful on the whiteboard to see whose parents had the best handwriting.
Thank you to all the parents and carers for coming along.

What is Coeliac Disease?
Isabella has this condition and thought it would be a lovely idea to inform her class with an insightful presentation on the condition. Thank you Isabella for sharing this with us, if you would like to find out more please click on the below link.
"I wanted to explain to my class what Coeliac Disease was and do a presentation about it to Dahl Class, so that they understand a bit more why sometimes I don't feel very well and have to be careful about what food I eat and where it's cooked. We played games with people representing 'villi', which are in your intestines and work differently for people with coeliac. I threw tennis balls which they caught easily and then netballs at one of them and they all fell over; this represented what happens to the villi when gluten hits them.
We did some activities and Mr Wren's wife had made some gluten free and non-gluten free cakes to see if anyone could taste the difference. Hopefully they all understand a bit more now."
Goodbye and Good Luck Mrs Polo
We say goodbye and good luck to Dahl Class TA Mrs Polo as she leaves on 2 November to start her maternity leave.
We wish her all the best and look forward to meeting her new bundle of joy!
Pizza Express visit
The children had great fun at Pizza Express learning how to make pizza dough. They created their own pizzas to bring back and enjoyed eating them in class.
Good Luck to Lena!
