Year 5 have been writing adventure stories based on their topics of Ancient Egypt. Here is an impressive paragraph from a pupil in 5AP:

Groaning came from within the historic establishment. As I advanced attentively, I stared in wonder at the horror of the statues before me.
Today’s WOW day for Year 3 went very well. Alongside an enjoyable and entertaining Roman performance from a visiting theatre company, the children made their own shields and investigated Roman ‘poo’!
