Welcome to the gallery!
On Wednesday 17th November, Year 5 boys and girls took part in the Interschool Cross Country sporting event.
Robert finished 4th and narrowly missed out on the third medal spot. The other boys all finished in the top 20s and 30s out of over 50 boys.
Reem finished in the top 20, with the remaining girls finishing in the top 30, 40 and 50.
Well done to all of the children involved. You did Mora and yourselves proud!
We were very fortunate to have a visit from a famous celebrity, Shaun Wallace! He lives locally, is a successful barrister and he is also a popular T.V personality. He is probably best known for working on the quiz show, THE CHASE. Children in Years 5 and 6 had an opportunity to ask him questions. We learnt about his life and how he became successful. Did you know that he still lives very close to our school?
What did you want to be when you were a child? A lawyer.
Have you ever been bullied for your skin colour? People haven’t bullied me... but they have told me I would end up in jail... I showed them!
Where was your favourite place that you played The Chase? Many countries but my favourite was New Zealand.
The Anti-Bullying week theme for 2020 was United Against Bullying.
Year 1 and 2 talked about colours in the rainbow and how those next to each other are friends. We used the "friend colours" to make pictures filled with different shapes. Year 3 learnt about complimentary colours, how these colours are different but work well together. We drew shapes and self portraits in these colour combinations. Year 4, 5 and 6 created self portraits of how they see themselves. They were told to be as creative and imaginative as possible and to celebrate what makes them, them!
For World Book Day this year, we all dressed in our warm pyjamas and brought our favourite teddy or cushion in to school. To celebrate a love of books, each class took part in an African story telling session, with a lot of audience participation. Also, classes snuggled up with a drink, a biscuit and a good book and read for pleasure - not just to answer comprehension sheets! There was even a reading cafe in Year 4 where children had to practise the art of sipping their "coffee" while reading at the same time!
Don't forget to take your book tokens to the nearest book shop or large supermarket, where you can exchange your token for a book!
What a fantastic start to the year!
Our Reading Forest has officially opened. I hope you all had a chance to visit the Pop Up Book Hut and exchange a leaf or twig for a book to keep at home. The event ignited the children’s passion for reading and we were thrilled to see how excited they were.
We are working hard to ensure our children develop a love for reading. You can help too! Make sure you are reading with your child or to your child every day. It is important that they are given the chance to escape into a book. Plus, the skill of reading is essential to enable them to explore all their interests across the curriculum.
