Our wire fish sculptures have been filled with plastic objects to reveal the true horrific effects of plastic pollution in our seas and oceans. 



Harry Potter

This term we will be using Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban as our stimulus for learning. We will be reading the book in some of our guided reading sessions and will be using the children’s enthusiasm in Harry and his magical world to provide many writing opportunities. In computing, we will be examining how the Harry Potter films were mad. In PE pupils will be combining their prior knowledge of handball, basketball, dodgeball and tag rugby to learn how to play quidditch. Every young witch and wizard needs a wand, this will be the focus of our DT. Pupils will be designing and creating their own working wands to enhance the magic which happens in the classroom.

Stay tuned for some outstanding writing about our trip.

A brief history of plural word...s - John McWhorter

We will be learning about the Vikings this term; but why? What have they ever done?

View full lesson here: All it takes is a simple S to make most English words plural. But it hasn't always worked that way (and there are, of course, exceptions). John McWhorter looks back to the good old days when English was newly split from German -- and books, names and eggs were beek, namen and eggru!
