Alessia - Alessia has been chosen this week for helping other children in the class settle in to Year 5. She has been seen helping others with their work and asking children to be included in her games . Alessia has also shown respect to her teachers. Well done - you treat others amazingly!

Lance - Lance has been chosen this week for always putting other peoples feelings before his own. Lance makes children laugh, gives them advice and is always a gentleman inside and outside the classroom. Brilliant Lance!


Fergus - Everyone in the class treats you with respect because you treat others that way! You are kind, considerate, loving and compassionate towards everybody in the class. A true credit to teachers, other children and your family.

She understands the importance of being positive and goes above and beyond to ensure others are okay (students and staff). Keep smiling Maria - it makes a difference!

Defeating the monster tale - Harry Potter

Over the past few weeks, children have been reading, exploring and writing about this genre.

The children created and designed their own polar monsters. We had some fantastic names for them such as: The Whaleatron, The Stunner, The Narlrus and The Clawchopper. They wrote character and setting descriptions for them. They then used these descriptions to write a 'defeating the monster tale' using the monster they had created.


In writing, we have spoken about how 'your first idea isn't always your best idea' and how sometimes you need to think and imagine before you write. Below are little snippets of children's work where their writing has come to life! These aren't even their final masterpieces! Well done Bea, Millie, George and Daniel. We can't wait to read your final pieces of writingsmiley
