 September 2021

To celebrate Roald Dahl's birthday we swopped teachers and listened to a favourite story. It was great fun listening to many of Roald Dahl's stories and meeting a new teacher.

Roald Dahl Day - Our story jar trail...

This week we have celebrated Roald Dahl Day by making story jars. Look at some of our beautiful examples from every year group.


We had a fun time learning about Roald Dahl and celebrating his many wonderful stories . Each class read a different book. We then used our story knowledge  to design and decorate story jars. We put in tea lights and displayed them in the playground . All the children  followed the trail and  enjoyed seeing each other’s work. From The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Matilda to the Twits, Fantastic Mr Fox and more , everyone has enjoyed their story and art work. 

Harvest Festival 

Next week we will be learning songs to celebrate Harvest time. Every year group will be choosing a song and we will put these on our web site next week .


Black History Month

Across school we have been celebrating Black History Month. It has provided a fantastic opportunity for us to recognize the outstanding contributions people of African and Caribbean descent and celebrate the lives of some very significant individuals. 


Take a look at some of the wonderful creations across the school:

Reception made medals for Dina Asher-Smith and ran races

Year 1 researched the life of Mary Seacole. We looked at who she was and what amazing things she did. Compared what a nurse looked like 220 years to the present day. Discussed how unfair it was that she couldn’t vote because of the colour of her skin. Finally, we became Doctors for the day and made our own cholera medicine, following Mary’s own recipe!

Year 2 researched the life of Lenny Henry and his charitable contributions. They made carnival masks for a charity event.

Year 3 enjoyed researching the life of Barack Obama and created beautiful factfiles.

Year 4 carried out research on Rosa Parks and considered the qualities that made her special.

Year 5 analysed Martin Luther King's famous speech and created artwork using quotes that meant the most to them.

Year 6 investigated the importance of Nelson Mandela, comparing life today with how it was in the past. They put themselves in his shoes by creating a diary entry.


We had lots of Halloween fun when each class designed and then carved pumpkins.

Poppies to remember

Lest we forget.

We created a whole school poppy sculpture in remembrance of those who have served in the armed forces all over the world.

Each year group used a different art skill to create a profusion of poppies.

We are very proud of year 1’s stunning firework pictures inspired by listening to Handel’s firework music . They have used pastels to create this wonderful effect.

A Christingle is made from different objects. Each of the objects has a special meaning.
