Year 6 have been learning about a new book called Skellig! Have you listened to your child telling you about their day at school? Telling you about their new topic in English? If not then here is some information about their newly favourite topic. Have you got any idea about the book?
This book has been Year 6’s favourite because it is so mysterious (and confusing in some points). Most of the story is related to real life. Year 6 will be continuing this topic to find out more about the book. They have written pieces of work around this topic already.
Hopefully at the end, we will complete another piece of writing based on what we have discovered through the book, but that will be even better and will have more detail!
If you want to have a read yourself, get the book out of the library! Leave a comment below to say what you think of the book so far!

This morning, children from Kraken class in Year 4/5, presented their assembly on dragons, including their work on the book & film – “How to Train Your Dragon!”
They showed examples of their work, explained the features of their amazing creatures and described their appearances and where their mythical beasts live!
The assembly also included a humourous appearance by a fierce dragon who was headed off by spear-wielding defenders, and a makaton inspired performance of a popular Dragon themed song! Children also demonstrated their work in Maths, designing a dragon training area too!
Well done to Miss Kempton, Miss Brenton and all of Kraken class for a super assembly! Leave a comment below to let us know what you thought of the Dragon-Kraken-Assembly this morning!

Year 3 were delighted to be crowned winners in the Bug Club reading challenge. As a reward, Penguins were thrown a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. What a party it was! The children spent the afternoon enjoying a picnic in the class and didn’t even save any food for their teachers! 😦

During book week, Year 6 studied Anthony Browne’s famous picture book ‘Voices in the Park’. Did you know that Anthony Browne is his own illustrator? This is because Browne believes a lot of the story can be told through pictures. As detectives, we searched for many clues in his illustrations to find out more about the characters.
