  • Junior Book Club

    17 June 2021

    The theme of our most recent Book Club was ‘Adventure’ and it was brilliant to see our children competing with their customary enthusiasm and impressive knowledge once again, particularly as due to National Lockdowns this was our first Book Club competition since December! R8 and R9 loved the beautifully illustrated Kitty and the Moonlight Rescue by Paula Harrison; where through daring, friendship and self-belief our hero discovers she really is a superhero after all.…

  • R11 Reading Group

    16 June 2021

    R11 Reading Group encourages our keenest and most committed readers to explore challenging and thought-provoking books and discuss them in-depth. This time we looked at fear, insecurity and bereavement in Beverly Naidoo’s hard-hitting Carnegie medal winner, The Other Side of Truth. The children were utterly convinced by the portrait of 13-year-old Sade, forced to flee her comfortable life in Nigeria after a government coup places their campaigning journalist father and his family in danger.…

  • R11 Rivers Trip

    24 May 2021

    Can you imagine an R11 “Rivers Trip” with no trip….and no river? R11 was lucky enough to have a visit from Dawn Thomas, the Lead Instructor at Naturedays. Using the many tools that Dawn brought with her, along with their imaginations, R11 pupils were able to learn more about the three river processes (erosion, transport, and deposition), study samples of river water, and use their bodies to recreate a number of natural phenomena.…
