Able Writers' Day with Visiting Author, Robin Price

Lucky writers from Years 3 & 4 were joined by children from other local schools to participate in an Able Writers' workshop at Christ Church School today. Robin Price, author of I Am Spartapuss and many other children's books, led a fun and inspiring day of creative writing. Children wrote and read aloud their own historical and science fiction stories and we also enjoyed hearing Robin read an extract from his novel,  London Deep. Thank you to all the children for working enthusiastically and creating some super stories.

Harvest

Today we celebrated Harvest. Many thanks for your kind donations. In KS1 we thought about God's promise to provide for us, and linked this with our value for this half term - Generosity. We created rainbows, made up, from fruit and vegetables.

Horowitz and Potter buddy reading

Today, Horowitz and Potter had their first buddy reading session. We met our buddies and said hello and then Potter class children shared their library books with their Horowitz buddies. Some listened to the younger children read, whilst others read to them. Some even took it in turns.  BloggerImage

Shared time in Year 1

One afternoon a week, at the beginning of the school year, all the Year 1 children spend time together in Hargreaves. This is their time to initiate their own learning and take part in some Year 1 specific activities. During this time Year 2 also get a chance to cover areas they need to focus on. Here is a snapshot of our first shared afternoon, which we ended with our own Year 1 daily mile!

All three classes have started to learn about Pirates, the first one being the most famous - Blackbeard and all have have read and acted out a poem about a Wizard's pocket, to give the children inspiration as to what might be found in a Pirate's pocket!

Yes, it rained, no, the ice cream machine was not well, no, some of us, did not get to go to the park (because of the rain!). HOWEVER we are KS1 and we had fun regardless! We built castles, dug holes, paddled, jumped waves and enjoyed each others company. Thank you to all who helped today and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
