Author and poet Jane Clarke visited our school today! All of the KS2 classes enjoyed workshops with her, where she read her books, talked about the process of writing and getting books published and shared some of her writing tips and ideas.

Everybody really enjoyed Jane Clarke’s visit. What was your favourite thing about your workshop, Key Stage 2?

Zulu Dancers

Today, we have enjoyed our first Smiley Reward of 2016-2017! The whole school enjoyed watching the Zulu Dancers perform in assembly, in the morning and in the afternoon.

We also took part in special workshops with the Zulus in our classes, singing and dancing to their amazing music.

John Rice – Poet

He read us loads of his poems, and we did lots of movement and actions!

Check out our class blogs for more information about his workshops, and have a look at our photos to see what we got up to in our assembly:
