Photographs that changed the world!

Well done to all the children in years 5 and 6 for their tremendous hard work this term. They have been on a journey, exploring the development of the camera and how the world has changed as a result of iconic events, remarkable people and even several disasters!

Watch the video here to gain insight into their expedition and let them introduce you to the culmination of our journey: their rather impressive final product!

Marvellous, Mighty, Mini-beasts

This week has seen the start of our writing for the final product. We have worked extremely hard in pairs to complete different paragraphs all about moths and bees. 3HJ then critiqued each paragraph together and redrafted. The quality of writing throughout has ben phenomenal and all children have blown me away! We are so excited to reveal our products you all! Watch this space!

Crew Celebrations


Here’s the gang!. A quite brilliant effort from Ronnie who is this week’s superhero – he has really tried his best in every element of his learning.  Alas, we the turn to Evie and Evie.  The first has amassed a quite ridiculous 6661 coins on TT Rockstars over the last 7 days and the latter, has shown tremendous resilience and effort in dealing with a plethora of difficult math’s problems.  Well done to all and have a great weekend everybody.

Silent Discussions

This week we have experimented with ‘Silent discussions’.
The children had to decide whether a word was either positive or negative. In our silent discussion the children were free to move around the room and write their thoughts next to the word, enabling all children to have a voice.
3HJ really enjoyed trialing this method of learning and it will definitely be used in the future.

This Week’s Crew Celebrations

Congratulations to all our winners…


Here’s another reason to celebrate. After much deliberation, Mrs Ball and Mrs Watters settled on Will for this week’s superhero: a very deserving winner…

Congratulations to Liam for becoming this week’s Crew Rock Star by amassing an impressive 17 574 coins over the last 7 days – awesome work!

Further congratulations is reserved for Lois who was voted (by her Crew) as this week’s Children’s Champion. Check out some of the comments below that were given as reasons by her peers. Very well done Lois.

And finally, here’s a trio of Special Mention’s (Toby, Elisha & Georgia) for some quite superb jottings during a math’s activity. Yes, I went a little overboard with the stamps and stickers but you would, wouldn’t you?

Crew Appreciations

Well big well doe to Dalton for receiving the most votes when our Crew filled in their individual nominations for this week’s Children’s Champion.  One always feels that a nomination from your peers just means that little bit more…



Staff Crew – Identifying HOWLs…

If it’s good enough for our children, its good enough for our staff too… Everything that you are doing in class, we are doing too!


We have also be revisiting our Core Values that we set together as a whole community 5 years ago. Here we are unpicking exactly what it looks like to embrace our values and identify our own HOWLs – Habits of Work and Learning. HOWLS help us demonstrate how we are working to be the best version of ourselves or as we like to say, “Being the BEST version of ME!”
