Reading buddies 

We read with our year 3 reading buddies twice a week and have enjoyed helping them with their reading. As our last 'big writing project' in year 6, we wrote mini-novels for year three. After lots of drafting, editing, illustrating and book technology we were able to share them with our partners this week! Year 3 loved them! 

World Book Day 

As part of World Book Day celebrations, Key Stage 2 enjoyed an online poetry session with the poet Ian Bland. We heard some of his poems, joined in with some and  learned how he wrote one of his poems. We found out about rhyming structures and syllable counts. Here are some photos from the session - you may recognise children from other classes as this was a whole school event! 

Japan Cultural Talk 

In our novel, Kensuke's Kingdom, Michael (our main character) meets a gentleman called Kensuke. As their friendship grows, Michael learns that Kensuke is from Japan and he learns all about Kensuke's traditions and way of life. We were lucky to take part in a cultural talk and workshop to find out all about Japan ourselves. 


During the autumn term in RE we have considered the question- 'What matters most to Christians and Buddhists?'  Having researched Buddhism through a quick on the draw task and an information hunt, we found answers to the following questions:

  • What is Buddhism and who was the Buddha?
  • What is the Buddhist Noble Eightfold Path and the four noble truths?
  • How do Buddhists express their faith? 
  • What is the significance of different Buddhist stories?

We worked in Kagan teams to present our findings on posters which we shared with the rest of school in sharing assembly.

Children in Need 2023- Thank you to our school councilors for organising a non-uniform day to raise money

Design Technology

In DT we enjoyed being challenged to make our own topic books. We investigated the best way to tie-dye our fabric covers so that we had multiple colours; we strengthened our spines using plaiting techniques and constructed our books independently. We are VERY proud of them and the learning within them! 

We also enjoyed food technology - making our Christmas gingerbread. As well as the cookies, we had to design and make our own packaging to keep them fresh! Take a look through our photographs; can you find the imposter?!

Christmas 2023.... 

What can we say?! We were awesome! We loved rehearsing, performing and working as a team. From auditions to final night; we were just AMAZING! Make a cup of tea, sit back and enjoying reminiscing with our two slide shows!
