Whole School Focus
This term we have launched our new Whole School Reading Challenge and the children are being encouraged to read at home as much as possible so they can work towards collecting different certificates. Once children have read at home ten times their names will appear on the board in the hall.
Alongside this children are also taking part in the Whole School Times Table Challenge once a week and the Wall of Fame is being updated once a term to show which children have gained certificates.

Kingfisher Class have settled into school well after the summer break and have enjoyed spending a few weeks learning more about Kingfisher birds.We wrote our own Kingfisher poems and enjoyed working together to learn and perform Eva's poem to the rest of the school in assembly.
Our whole school theme for terms one and two is now 'What made Britain great?'. As part of this Kingfisher Class are learning about the Vikings. In Week Three we had a Viking WOW Day where we enjoyed taking part in a range of activities including: weaving, writing Viking runes, making helmets and going on a walk to explore how Vikings would have navigated using natural land marks.
In English lessons the text we are using is: 'There's a Viking in my bed' by Jeremy Strong. So far we have written some fantastic descriptions of the main character Sigurd the Viking- come and check out some of our work on the English display in school!
