National Poetry Day

We have all enjoyed celebrating National Poetry Day today. We started with a poetry slam – reading favourite poems aloud and rating them out of 4. Everyone enjoyed reading poetry to the children from the reception class. Finally, we read a poem called ‘Liar.’ We looked at some BBC headlines to decide whether they were real or fake news. Then we used these headlines as a starting point for some class poems.

Fantastic Collective Worship

Yesterday Sophia and Angela led us in a fanatic collective worship all about sharing.

They showed us a lovely version of the story of Jesus feeding the 500 with loaves and fishes in which the boy with the food chose  to share.

We pray for all those who do not have enough to eat.

We pray that we will be able to share more willingly.

Observing changes in our local area

We enjoyed our walk around Millhouses this morning. We followed the map and spotted changes such as Mercia School and the new housing next to the school. We asked some local people how they felt about the changes and the impact it has had on their lives. Some children used the ipads to take photographs. We will be using this information to create a report on change in our area.
