The drawbridge started to open: it fell. My brother began running behind the fearless soldiers – we were running as fast as we could. It was dull so it was hard to see anything.

We enjoyed wearing our jumpers today! Thanks to all the staff who provided us with our dinner and helped us make our xmas hats!!
This afternoon, year 6 made a replica Chichen Itza out of cardboard and sugar cubes. The children enjoyed working in groups and showed great resilience! Well done, year 6!
This week our WOTW goes to Lily for writing an impressive diary entry as a character from a video. Well done, Lily!
Today we got the opportunity to watch the production at Hylands. It was a fantastic show put on by the pupils and our year 6’s were very respectful and have a wonderful afternoon!
I hope it has given some of our children the aspiration to want to be in our summer production!
This week in year 6 we have been giving out pen licences! Megan, Phoebe, Willow and Averie are the first ones to earn their pen licences based on their consistently, joined, neat handwriting! I look forward to handing out more pen licences over the next few weeks!
Friday in year 6, I gave Freddie and Alex the opportunity to show off their amazing Computing skills by teaching the class how to use transitions on Keynote. The boys really grasped the challenge and enjoyed leading the lesson. I am looking forward to giving the children in year 6 more opportunities to showcase their skills in class.
