Following on from a wonderful Harry Potter filled morning, Year 6 went for a wand making lesson down in the woods. The wands look fantastic and have been put to good use casting spells in some closely fought wand duels! Watch out family members… the wands have gone home!

Super concentration and effort in Year 6 this morning. After reading ‘The Giant’s Necklace’, we are writing newspaper reports about the disappearance of Cherry Glover. I can’t wait to read them!

Incredible Inventors

Well done to these fantastic inventors who are all writers of the week! The children had to design and then explain their own invention which would help to keep Mr Grinling’s lunch safe from the pesky seagulls! Lucas, Leila, Archie, Tayla and Bobby put so much thought and detail into their designs and explanation making them very worthy winners! Well done to the rest of the children who also worked extremely hard on this challenge and had great fun coming up with the most elaborate designs!

Our Alice Adventures Continue

What a fantastic Alice themed week we’ve been having this week!
Children all looked fantastic dressed as characters from the story yesterday and really enjoyed our visit to ‘The Rabbit Hole’.

We have also made our own eat me fruit kebabs, Queen of Hearts jam tarts and top hat biscuits.
This morning we have made personalised clay playing cards with Belinda the artist.

I can’t wait to see what the rest of the week brings!

Drink Me Potions

We had a super morning learning in our outdoor area in the sunshine today. Each activity was inspired by the ‘Drink Me’ part of Alice in Wonderland. We had children making potions, writing lists of ingredients, designing labels and role playing the story. Back in the classroom children produced some fantastic writing describing their potions. Some sounded incredibly disgusting and I wouldn’t like to drink them! I did like the sound of a potion that makes puppies appear though!
