During week 5 of this half term, Year 3 have been busy working to write their own Tales of Fear. Ideas have been readily flowing with fears ranging from spiders to crabs to bears. After planning, Year 3 orally shared their story with a friend who offered support by making sure the story followed the five parts of a tale of fear.
- Opening paragraph – the main character is afraid of something and is worried about it.
- Build up paragraph – the main character starts to do something
- Problem paragraph – What the main character fears actually comes true!
- Resolution paragraph – the main character overcomes the fear
- Ending paragraph – the main character has conquered the fear and looks to the future
After writing, Year 3 spent time making their changes to punctuation, grammar and also spelling. Then it was time to think like an author by publishing their stories.
Pop into Year 3 and have a read 🙂
Year 5 joined in the whole school celebration of Prince Harry’s and Meghan’s wedding on Saturday. We made bicuits fit for a royal wedding reception and decorated them with flags, crowns and good luck messages.
We also had challenges to complete on our home tables. Our first challenge was to design and make a wedding dress for our Meghan doll. Our second challenge was to design and build a bridge strong enough to carry our wedding car across the River Thames.
With only newspaper, lollipop sticks and sellotape, it was tricky but we did it.
Year 1 have been learning all about Buddhism. We have read many stories about the Buddhists and their special practices. Today we performed the story of the Buddha to the whole school and our parents.

Today we added items of red, white and blue to our uniforms to celebrate the Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan.
We talked about the Royal Family and found out where they are going to get married. We also talked about why we were wearing red, white and blue. We then made our own flags.
We also found out that Meghan’s favourite flowers are peonies so we made our own.
Finally we made wedding cards.
This week we have continued to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly through the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.
The children have ordered the life cycle and wrote all about it.
Here are some photos of the children acting out the life cycle!
On Thursday and Friday we spoke about the Royal Wedding. The children really enjoyed learning about Prince Harry and Meghan. Some children even wrote a story about their wedding! On Friday the children dressed up in red, white and blue.
