Term two has got off to a fantastic start!

In weeks one and two, the children had the opportunity to learn all about COP26 and issues surrounding this. We explored the following:

-recycling and its benefits

-who David Attenborough is




Some fantastic work by Oaks class.

In today's modern world, editing software is freely available and altering pictures has never been easier. In our computing lessons, we identified photo-shopped images. This led to a discussion about the media and how it portrays people.

On Friday 19th November, Oaks class were lucky enough to have an artist come into school and show us how to create lanterns. These lanterns will then be used to celebrate The Festival of Light.

We are learning French in our lessons. As a class we understand how important it is, to use a range of different techniques, when learning a language. Instead of copying sentences or learning a long list of vocabulary, Oaks class have a different approach. We have been using different creative methods to learn French: through song, mime, conversation and games. 


Our work concluded with pupils' designing a product, that would help someone to learn the French language. The pupils also created a pitch to present to the class. 

Children's Mental Health Week: During our Music lessons this term, we have been studying lyrics from WW2 songs. The pupils were then tasked with editing the lyrics to a song, to make it relevant for a modern day audience. We decided that Children's Mental Health Week would provide a fantastic opportunity for children to edit these lyrics. We worked with the Acorns class (utilising the concept of Growing Together) , using our team building skills, to create a performance.
