Future Poets!

Year 6 have been working hard all week on their World War One inspired poetry. We wrote our stanzas on strips of paper and mixed up our classes for a feedback session. We will be redrafting our poems after the half term break in preparation to share them in our class assembly and at the Blackley Forest Remembrance Service on 11.11.23.

War Horse

Year 6 are loving their first class text of the year: War Horse by Michael Morpurgo. These children did a brilliant job of sequencing the story so far. We wonder what will happen to Joey now that Captain Nicholls is gone? Will Albert join the war effort? We can’t wait to read on and find out!

A Special Visitor!

Yesterday year 1 witnessed something spectacular. They saw a real life alien called Beegu and her spaceship! The poor creature seemed very confused, but luckily the teachers were on hand to help fix her spaceship. As a way of saying thankyou she also left the year 1 children a very special book to read in their class.

Y4 gratitude jars

This week, we read our whole-school book, The Invisible by Tom Percival, and discussed the main themes of the text including ‘poverty’ and ‘community’. We then created gratitude jars and filled them with all the things that we are thankful for including family, friends, education and our health. Finally, we had a lot of fun decorating our jars. Well done Year 4 for a great start to the year!
