Friday 20th December - IT'S CHRISTMAS!


Mrs. Daniels and Mrs. Shorthose would like to say a huge 'Thank you' for the kind and generous cards, gifts and well wishes for the festive season. 


Instead of buying individual gifts for our class this year, we all had a discussion about buying/donating a charitable gift instead. We browsed the 'Unicef' website for possible ideas and the children voted for a vaccination pack (as seen in the photograph below). We have purchased this as a Christmas gift for the class and are very proud of their kindness and generosity! We're really glad that we can contribute to something positive for people in need.


Merry Christmas and all the very best for the start of 2020!

Tuesday 17th December - Carol Concert


'Thank you' to all of our family and friends who came to support us with our Christmas carol concert this afternoon. It was very chilly on the playground but we had lots of fun. 

We sang 'Jingle Bell Rock' and now feel very Christmassy!



Tuesday 17th December - William Allitt Trip


We all enjoyed our fantastic trip to William Allitt secondary school today. We had a tour of the library and familiarised ourselves with different kinds of books and other literary media such as DVDs. We worked in teams to solve a puzzle, which was a map of the library! 


We then had a brilliant English lesson with Mrs. Tissington in a big classroom. We studied the poem 'The Tyger' by William Blake. Mrs. Tissington told us that this was a Year 7 lesson - and we rose to the challenge! As we worked through the activities, she said we were giving her GCSE students a run for their money!


We were so proud of the children in our class who showed just how hard they work in their lessons. Their VIPERS skills and understanding of different text types really shone through. They were knowledgeable, confident and mature. 


We all enjoyed the rides on the minibuses too! 


Thank you to Mrs. Lundman and all of the staff at William Allitt for helping us arrange the visit and for making us feel so welcome.
