British Values

On Friday 22nd January we held a ‘British Values’ Day. Each class looked a British Value: Class 1 explored the ‘Rule of Law’ and  learned about the importance of rules, displaying these on bunting around the classroom. Class 2 explored ‘Respect and Tolerance’ and shared the poems of Benjamin Zephaniah from his book ‘We Are Britain’. Their work is displayed in the school entrance. Class 3 explored the idea of ‘Individual Liberty’ and learned about Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate.

Class 4  studied ‘Democracy’ and learned about the Magna Carta, Voting Rights for Women and they then wrote to their MP Alberto Costa.


Design and Technology Afternoon

The whole school embarked upon a Design and Technology afternoon on Tuesday 23rd February. The theme was food preparation, healthy eating and cooking. Pupils made a range of delicious food including samosas, cheese biscuits, fruit kebabs and soup. Thanks to all the parents who kindly volunteered to help with this project.




Class 2 Assembly

Pupils in class 2 shared some of the work they have been doing this term including time tables, The Queen and Planets. Lots of parents and grandparents came along to watch and enjoyed hearing about what the children have been learning.
