A warning tale

Year 2 are reading and writing warning tales at the moment.
They began by reading "Little Red Riding Hood".
Here is their display so far:

World Book Day.

On April, 23rd, World Book Day, K3C were very lucky to have been given a copy each of the 'What the ladybird heard song' book. This was very kindly donated by Nia's mum. Thank you! We read the story and sang the song together in the classroom and then the children loved having their own book to take home.

You can find the song, sung by the author, Julia Donaldson and her husband, on YouTube. Follow this link :

For more information about World Book Day with book related activities, please google World Book Day 2018. Have fun!

K3C and their rhymes

Here are some fantastic rhymes written by K3C. We hope that you enjoy them!

K3C Rhymes.

We're Going on a Dino Hunt

In 1st Grade this week, we are looking at poems by Michael Rosen.
As P1B's assembly will be about dinosaurs next term, they have written a poem in the style of "We're Going on a Bear Hunt."
Click to read their interactive book, "We're Going on a Dino Hunt."
When they perform this poem in their assembly, they will use Talk4Writing actions!

Egypt Recount

As part of their Computing lesson this week, P3C have been performing their imitation text all about Tutankhamun. They used the green screen that we have at school and then they used the app Green Screen by DoInk.
It was their first time and so they learned many things which will help them to use the app better in the future.
Well done to Miss Vivienne and well done to P3C!
