Term 1: Look what we've been up to!

Black History Month

Inspired by the work of Stormzy, Banksy & the BLM movement

In class today, we really focused our learning for Black History month. We started off the morning by discussing equality and what racism is. Using Stormzy as our well-known figure in modern day society, we discussed and debated whether we believe he should be Prime Minister. Would his experience with racism and inequality help our country become a better place? Or could he continue to use his platform to educate the world about the importance of fairness and kindness to all.


We then wanted to show our thoughts and beliefs about equality through art. Investigating the British artist Banksy, we have created some of our own pieces of art commenting on equality using his style as our inspiration. 

Quotes from children:

'Today was really good, we learnt a lot about why black lives matter and how people should be treated. We've also found out ways to stop people being unkind to each other. We are all the same.'


'I've really enjoyed today. It's been interesting to get an insight to understand how people have felt in the past due to racism and to now look at how we can stop this.'

Hi to all,

In case you wanted to work on your Verona travel guide, here is the PowerPoint (in a PDF) we used in class. Useful as a guide! I will be looking for more Romeo and Juliet resources this week so keep checking your class page and keep reading and writing. Try keeping a journal/blog throughout this time as one day it may be a useful historical document. I've already started mine! Feel free to send me anything you do and I'll share!

Stay safe and keep smiling peep Miss L :)

Wow! What an amazing Arctic Fox ‘Chill Out’ Exhibition


The children put together a thoughtful and innovative ‘Together & Wellbeing’ theme with children excitedly sitting with family members to share their exhibition experience.


The children kicked off the exhibition with a musical singing rendition of ‘Happy’ and then showcased their artistic talents of dance, artwork, pom pom and badge making demonstrations.  They also showed off their presentation and entrepreneurial skills and finally a chill out guide of meditation for the adults.


After, the children organised refreshments of tea, coffee and yummy homemade biscuits. It was a wonderful atmosphere where they chatted and presented family members with their current school work.


Thank you to everyone who came, we hope you enjoyed our ‘Chill Out’ Exhibition!

A taste of Mexico

Thursday 24 January


As part of this terms Learning Unit Theme 'Harmonious Habitats & Mysterious Mayans' we decided to make some well known dishes that originated from the ancient Mayans, including guacamole, black bean, tomato and chili salsa and pineapple salsa accompanied with corn tortillas.     


"The Mayans invented many foods that are still eaten on a regular basis. They were the first civilization to make corn tortillas, and they used their avocado crops to make an ancient form of guacamole.  The four staple foods in Mayan cuisine were squash, beans, maize and chili peppers, and they were often combined with meat or seafood. Squash, beans, and maize are often referred to as the "three sisters" because they provide all the necessary nutrients when eaten together."
