Narrative writing

There has been some amazing narrative writing in Year 4 this week. Here is an example of the opening to one story from 4P:

In the middle of her wrinkly face, that was covered in plenty of warts, was a pair of unblinking eyes scanning Kacey as she trembled across the room holding steadily a saucer, spoon and the delicate china cup filled with pure sugared tea. In the upper right corner of the room, next to the slightly opened window, which had beige curtains, was grumpy Grandma slouched in her chair, her back arched and an angry expression on her face.

PTA mufti and Christmas Jumper Day

This Friday, 8th December, the pupils are invited to wear their own clothes in return for bringing in a donation towards a class Christmas hamper. Information about the relevant item to bring in has been distributed, but please seek clarification from your child’s class teacher should it be required. The raffle draws for the hampers will follow next week.

On Monday 11th December the school council have set up a Christmas jumper day. In return for a £1 donation, pupils can wear a Christmas jumper over the top of their normal uniform. The money raised will be donated to Save The Children.

Football matches

This afternoon’s football matches resulted in a loss, a draw and a win against Park School. The Year Five boys played particularly well to win 7-2, as well as hitting the crossbar twice and the post once. Good sportsmanship was evident all round and the support on both sides was highly motivating!

Reading workshop

Some Year Six pupils took part in a carousel of reading challenges related to their class text ‘Friend or Foe’ by Michael Morpurgo. Pupils are considering character, plot, retrieval of information and analysis of language.
