Autumn 2 Week 5

Year 5 has turned incredibly frosty this week as the classroom has been transformed into the Antarctic. Well done to the children who created snowflakes, penguins and landscapes- they look amazing. This has helped us to imagine and explore the life of Ernest Shakleton. Through our research, we have discovered the amazing life he led […]

Year 6 – 07/12/18

We have entered into Advent thinking deeply about what it is we are preparing for and how we can better ourselves for the Lord’s coming. A couple of weeks ago, the children worked in groups to prepare Acts of Worship to align with the Advent Gospel readings, and this week we had our first two […]
