Class 12 – Year  5 – Jessica

The Star of the week in Class 12 this week is Jessica.

Jessica is usually to be found with her head down working at a tremendous pace.  She loves working and just doesn’t seem to stop.  Not only is she a fantastic worker but she also is amazing at helping others – she always has her hand up to contribute to discussion in class and is never short of a very interesting question or two.  To top it all, she does all of this with an amazing smile on her face.  Well-done Jessica.

Year 2 celebrate the Christmas story in style

Classes and 5 and 6 took to the stage on 5th December to retell the traditional nativity story and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

The children from both classes, worked extremely hard to learn the words to many songs and readings and also to know when they had a part to play.

The performance was a complete success with all children demonstrating great confidence and stage presence.

Well done!

Enjoying every second of the Hour of Code

Over the last two weeks each class in Key Stage 2 has taken part in the Hour of Code.  For those unfamiliar, Hour of Code is a worldwide event which encourages school children to spend an hour having fun by problem solving through writing code. 

Each year some amazing activities are created and this year schools around the world got to enjoy spending an hour Dance Party and coding their characters to dance their favourite moves.

But enough of me talking about it, here’s a fab video of the children enjoying choreographing their very own Dance Party!

– Mr Woolcock

This is the second year we’ve taken part in the international Hour of Code – you can read more about the children’s Minecraft adventure last year below:
