READING

Our reading area is comfortable and full of ood books for everyone. We can concentrate really well..Class 3 Reading

Reading Gladiators

Some of the children in year 4 have risen to the challenge of becoming a Reading Gladiator. Over the course of the year children read eight carefully selected books and at the end of the year take part in an exciting reading challenge day. The programme is designed to stretch, motivate and embed the reading habit, thus providing a good foundation for the challenges of the upper junior school.

Each month, they read a book and take part in some activities and competitions based on the story, during guided reading and independent learning time. The children have produced some amazing art work.

CLASS 3 GO GREEK!

We have been tasting lots of Greek food this week. A huge thank you to Mrs Richardson, who came in to talk to us about life in Greece.  She taught us some Greek words and brought in home made Greek feta cheese pie and spinach pie for us to try. Class 1 and 3 loved it.  "Efcharisto" Mrs Richardson.

Very tasty Greek pies

We also said goodbye to Mr Corder.  We had a delicious Greek Feast, and Mr Corder was our guest of honour.  He wore a crown we had made for him. We ate feta cheese, olives, tomatoes, pitta, tzatziki, peppers and Greek yogurt and honey.

CHURCH FLOWER FESTIVAL 2016

Class 3 have been busy making flower arrangements for the Church Flower Festival to be held this weekend.  The children worked really hard, with Mrs Neale from the church, who kindly gave up her time to help the children.  Our beautiful church always looks even more stunning during the Flower Festival and the children are honoured to be part of it.  Why not stop by to admire their handywork.

Class 3 have been learning about how to make persuasive arguments.  They have been writing open letters about a cause that is very close to their hearts, setting their own bedtimes at weekends. Here are some of the most persuasive.  I'm sure you will find them very convincing.

Colchester Zoo Trip

Class 3 and 4 had a fabulous day at the zoo. Andy, one of the zookeepers, gave us a presentation about different habitats around the world. We saw many different animals and were able to spot lots of animals that come from the rainforest, like sloths, monkeys, anacondas and colourful birds. The weather was kind to us and we walked so much, we got very tired!
