Deputy Headteacher Update - Friday 13th January 2023

Welcome to this week’s update.


It has been our first full week back since the holidays and the pupils have been learning some amazing things. This week started with children learning about World Religion Day and how on Sunday 15th January there will be celebration across the world focusing on unity and respect for everyone and their different beliefs.


There has been a Roman invasion in school this week! Our Year 3 children acted out being Roman soldiers invading Britain. Congratulations to Turing Class for defecting Ashe Class in battle.


Year 5 have started some amazing portal stories that they have been very keen to share with me; I am looking forward to reading their final published stories!


This term in P.E. children are learning dance. So far and all the children have been showing off their moves. From The Lion King to The Greatest Showman, children are choreographing a dance with different elements to create a final piece later this term.


See our photographs in the slideshow to see our learning from this week!
