‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn Term B

Week 5

We were treated to a Rocksteady music concert this week. We loved watching our friends performing in their bands. 
In Computing we have started learning about spreadsheets and we have created our own.  

Week 4

This week we have been learning about the Street Artist Banksy and how he uses stencils in his paintings. We made our own stencils and created our own images, combining colours and mediums.  We also enjoyed using bow saws, loppers and Laplander saws in bushcraft this week, to make wooden reindeers. 

Week 3

On Monday we wore our odd socks to school to kick off our Anti-bullying week. All week we have completed a range of activities to learn more about bullying and how to prevent it happening. 
In maths we have been learning about prime,  composite, square and cube numbers. 
We had a amazing time learning to play the steel drums. We absolutely rocked it! Watch our videos to see how brilliant we were.

Week 2


This week we have been learning about Remembrance Day and why it is commemorated every year.  We have learnt a poem and a song in preparation for the whole school Remembrance Assembly on Friday.

These videos show us performing the poem - "In Flanders Fields" by John McCrae - and the song - "Fields of Poppies" (music: Sting; lyrics: Sue Bleazard).

We were delighted to receive a lovely letter from author, David Almond, in response to an email from Mrs Williams. He was also kind enough to send 3 signed books for our school library. Thank you, David Almond.
