Year 5 | Book Swap & Happiness

by Miss Addison

This term, the children in 5PA have been working with a volunteer from a charity called Global Action Plan on a project which they feel is important to them. 

Some of the children created the Star Readers group to promote reading for pleasure. This afternoon, this group held a book swap event for all of the children in Year 5 and Year 6.

Every child got the chance to pick a book to take home and keep! It was fantastic to see so much excitement and talk about reading! 

Here is a small selection of the photos from the event: 

Another group from 5PA called Diamond Happiness create compliment cards to help spread happiness in school.

They designed and made these cards before handing them out at the book swap event!

It was a fantastic afternoon and so lovely to see everyone in Year 5 and Year 6 happy and smiling.

Nursery | Look at our Christmas tree!

by Mrs Ridings

Today the children really enjoyed decorating our class Christmas tree.

We made our own decorations. We made gingerbread men out of clay and Christmas ornaments out of paper.

We made paper chains and baubles to hang from the ceiling!

Year 4 | Very convincing and persuasive speeches from Year 4

by Miss Dhanda

Last week, we started our writing unit on persuasive letter writing. To help us, we planned and delivered presentations on different topics.

We thought of three reasons to support our argument, planned what to say and selected powerful vocabulary to engage our audience.
