In art we painted watercolours of Mount Fuji in the style of Hokusai. They were so successful we mounted them in clip and glass frames. This one is by Melody Pepper.

On 25th and 26 April Willow and Beech classes joined forces for a two day trip to Hill End. We had an amazing time and enjoyed the experience of being away from home. The picture shows an activity called 'Night line' which encourages trust and communication skills.

Willow class have been working on persuasion and organised themselves into groups to promote one of the 7 New Wonders of the World. They presented their cases in a whole school assembly and then asked the whole school to vote. The winning 'Wonder' was Chichen Itza in Mexico. The word on the playground was that it was their amazing rap that clinched it for them.
Well done to the whole class for a great team effort!


Willow class have been cooking this term with Mrs Watkins-Rowe and Mrs Garner. We have made and enjoyed eating Cheesy Frittata and Spicy Carrot Burgers. Recipes have been sent home with the children and are included here.
