We are in desperate need of 4 parent volunteers to walk with us to Creaser Park for Sports Day this Friday at 12pm.

If you are able to help and you are a registered volunteer at school, please contact us ASAP!  We really appreciate your time.

What is prayer?

In Religion over the past week we have been discussing a few focus questions:


What is prayer?

Why do we pray?


First we read the text ‘Can I Pray With My Eyes Open?’ as a whole class


As a class we discussed our thoughts about these questions.  Here are our responses:


Students were then able to write their own prayers in order to create a collated book of class prayers to refer to when we lead in prayer in our classroom each day

Welcome to 3/4DP and 5/6PA

Hi everyone,

What an amazing start to the year in our classes!  We have been getting to know each other in a variety of ways.  A focus this term will be on our ‘welcome circle’.  Each day we will sit around the room as a whole group and take part in different activities to welcome each other in the classroom to further develop our positive relationships with each other.


What do you value?

In small groups and as a whole class, we have explored the things that we each value both personally and in our classroom.  Here are our responses:


Here are the values we have decided to maintain in our classroom.  We will all write our names around the scroll and display it in our classroom to remind us of what we value.


Hi everyone,

This morning was fantastic. With everyone having a laptop, everyone was engaged with the coding task we did this morning. Coding is an essential skill for future jobs. Learning the language, but also the ability to think conceptually is essential. We look to continue our learning with this throughout the year.

As soon as our Making Learning Visible notes are back, i will update this post with photos.
