English: Poetry, Creativity and Performance!

This week, the Year 5 Children enjoyed discussing and analysing Robert Louis Stevenson's poem My Shadow. With this inspiration in mind, the children worked in groups of twos to design and create their own shadows and stories. They were very excited to have the opportunity to narrate and perform their Shadow Stories to their class. We had some amazing adventures with super heroes, dragons, flying rabbits, football heroes, witches and magic cats!



Art: Pointillism

Puffin class have been learning the technique Pointillism. Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. Georges Seurat and Paul Signac developed the technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism.

Design & Technology

December 2021

This term Upper School have been designing and creating birdboxes. They started the beginning of term researching and measuring the technical details of their designs in their books. Mrs Hewitt with the help of a few family members cut and shaped MDF board into the correct sizes. The children then constructed and glued the designs and finally last week they were able to decorate the final project. Below are Magpie class with their designs.

Class Presentation on Climate Change

Eve and Clara are both concerned about climate change.  They created a PPT Presentation with lots of information and presented it to the class. It also included a section entitled 'What can kids do to help?'. The pair worked seamlessly together to raise this very important issue with their classmates, taking questions and making suggestions. I was super impressed with them both.




Starting from Monday 8th March, we will be returning to the below class arrival and departure times. Tulip class PE days are Tuesday and Friday, so please come in wearing your School PE Kit. 


Remote Learning Work

The children have brilliantly adapted to their remote learning lessons and curriculum work via Microsoft TEAMS. Mrs Gilbert has been in her class with those children in school and together they have all managed to interact and enjoy some lessons together.


It is obviously not the same as all being together in person, but lovely to see the technology working in practice!

Born to Run!

A huge well done to Connie who has taken up running and received a medal from Ms Butcher after sending her this message:

'On the 5th of Jan 2021, I decided to challenge myself and to try and run 5km. I did 18 training runs until I was finally ready, and on 2-2-2021 I completed my challenge and ran 5.37 km in 41.16 minutes. In all, I have run a total of 46.44km since I started. It was hard work, but I am very proud of myself and I feel stronger’.

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.'

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!
