Sharing our Core Texts
(2nd March 2022)
As part of our book week we had a very special assembly this Wednesday. Representatives from each class took the opportunity to share the book their class will be focussing on this half term. They went on to explain how their book fits into our whole school theme of ‘Saving our Environment’. It was a joy to see children sharing their enthusiasm of reading and looking forward to a half term packed with learning.

West End Theatre Experience
(28th February 2022)
Today we were lucky to have a special visitor as part of book week. Harry joined us from the West End Theatre Academy. He shared with us his time performing ‘The Railway Children’ (A book we will go on to read next half term). We then got our very own West End drama lesson, learning how to bring the characters in the book to life and convey their emotions to an audience. Here are some pictures from our wonderful afternoon acting.
Chinese New Year
(1st February 2022)
Today we were treated to a very special in class assembly by our classmate Amelia E. Amelia shared with us a very exciting part of her heritage. Each year is represented by a different animal from the Chinese lunar calendar, this year is the year of the Tiger.
We learnt how to give a new year greeting in Cantonese (kung hei fat choi), the food people eat during the day and the gifts (red envelops) that are given. Amelia even brought in some traditional sweets for us all as a gift.
