Thanks Giving Assembly

A huge well done to Molly who gave us a brilliant assembly to her classmate on Thursday all about Thanksgiving. As her family celebrate it every year, she shared a fantastic PowerPoint presentation and told them all about it.

Quarantine Question Time!

Does Mr Hadlow find it easier to teach Lynx Class or his own children and what is his embarrassing disco move! Can you guess what Mr Baker's favourite Lockdown Lunch is and what new skill has he learnt. What animal would Miss Braid like to keep as a pet in her back garden and is there a rainbow in her window? To find out, click on Mr Hadlow, Mr Baker and Miss Braid's Quarantine Question Time video as they reveal all!

Create a time capsule


We are in the middle of the most significant planet-wide event since The Second World War.  Our children are living through a period which will be taught in schools in years to come. And when their own children have 'show and tell' it's kind of both cool and humbling to think of their classmates looking back in time through items, photos and notes deliberately selected by us, right now, as being representative of our hopes and fears and everyday life in lockdown.

Oxford Owl: Free ebooks

Miss Braid has set up an account on the Oxford Owl website. The company that made this site are the people who publish all the "scheme" books we have at school so it will be particularly helpful for those of you that are on stage books. That said, the "e-books" on offer in their "e-library" are appropriate for those up to age 11 so you 'free readers' will find it useful too!


Get onto website using this link then click on "My class login" at the top of the page.


Log in using the username: Endowed Hedgehogs and the password: missbraid (Miss Braid originally set this up for her class before realising how many others may need this too!). You can browse the e-books by age range, series or theme. You can turn the pages just like in a real book, and even have a narrator read along with you! Such a great resource, I hope you get lots from it.
Please read Charlie's amazing stories and Patrick's fact finding Indian and Saxon Projects

TERM 5 Times Table Rockstars



Hello all of you Times Tables Rockstars! 

It's been four weeks since our TTRockstars Championship winners were announced and we've been keeping count of all the coins that you've earned since. 


This term's class winners are Lynx Class with an impressive 96,361 coins.


A massive well done and thank you from all of the Lynx Class goes to Lily who earned 45,712 coins on her own! An amazing achievement, beating some of the other classes' combined scores! This means that Lily is our TTRockstars Queen for Term 5. Congratulations Lily!


Kurt in Year 3 put in a valiant effort, earning over 18,000 coins for 2nd place and Stuart in Year 6 finished 3rd with over 12,000 coins. 


Well done to everyone who took part this term and don't forget to keep practising over the next few weeks! Perhaps the TTRockstar trophy can move from Lynx Class next term - it's becoming part of the furniture in there!

Illustration Masterclass

June 2019


Walliams Class would like to say a big thank you to Quinton (Mae's Dad) who came in to talk to the children about his job as a professional illustrator and artist.


Quinton is the Illustrator of New York Times Bestseller, and Children’s Book of the Year 2018 Specsaver’s National Book Award Winner, ‘Stories For Boys Who Dare To Be Different’, by Ben Brooks.

Also colourist for 2017 Eisner Award nominated 'Clean Room' (DCVertigo Comics).


It was an exciting and creative afternoon with the children learning about all the techniques he uses and creating their own self-portraits.



Pizza Fun!

Thursday 7 February

We had such fun making pizzas at Pizza Express on Thursday. We learnt how to make the bases, chose lots of yummy toppings and then once they had been cooked we bought them back to class and enjoyed eating them.
