In Red Kite class we discovered the Attenborough in us all as we used our own playground to search for, and document the strange homes, plants and creations found on Neverbelieve. Some children found amazement when discovering the chocolate tree! Book mountain had groups of children dazzled by its storytelling, whilst the pasta tree was a delightful treat for those who tried it.
In Literacy we have started to explore the strange and mysterious land of Neverbelieve. Based on the brilliant book by Norman Messenger we are aimining to write letters to none other than Sir David Attenborough!

Why? Because we have discovered a new hybrid animal on Neverbelieve.

Using web based music studios we have been able to develop and build compositions with an awareness of instrument, tone and pace.

The children have produced some fantastic pieces and clearly have a talent for creating a soundscape from scratch.

See below for more examples of the children's work.

New Topic!

 

With the start of a new term comes a new topic! This term in Red Kites we are looking at World War II with a particular focus on life in Britain at the time.

Using some information posters, the children have the started to develop their own questions that will direct their research throughout the topic. After all, good history stems from good questioning!

As always we are continuously on the look out for books, replicas and documents etc. that will develop our insight into our new topic. If you think you may have something and are of course willing to share it, please do not hesitate to let us give it a new home for a short while. 


Many Thanks, Mr Paynter.
