Year 5 took part in the Harvest Festival this year by saying a poem. The class each had a line to say, expressing the importance of the Harvest Festival and how it impacts the community around us. Some children also read out a prayer that they wrote themselves, during our RE lessons. The Harvest Festival was a great opportunity for the whole school to come together, celebrating the wider community.


We were very lucky today to experience a poetry day. Neal Zetter, a children’s poet with many published books, came to visit. We learnt one of Neal’s poems called 'Never Eat a Whole Elephant Sandwich' and performed it in the school’s Poetry Slam at the end of the day after lots of rehearsing. Our performance was so brilliant that we came second out of the whole school! Scan the QR code below to watch a video of our performance!

27/9/19 - Learning about the Moon Phases in Science... with oreos!
