Well done to Elliot W for designing the winning chocolate bar for Hotel Chocolat! The staff at the factory were very impressed with all the children's designs and flavours.

Yesterday a lady from Hotel Chocolat came to talk to the children about how chocolate is made. She has set the children a challenge: to design, make, package and advertise a new type of chocolate bar. Her and her colleagues at the Hotel Chocolat kitchen will evaluae the children's chocolate bars and feedback to the children on whether the testers at the factory like their new flavour ideas.

Yesterday was National Poetry Day and the children enjoyed sharing some of their favourite poems as well as reading some new ones. Some children chose to write their own poems at home. Below is Elliott's fantastic poem on his upcoming holiday. 

      Things I would like to see in Wales

         In Wales I'd like to see:

       Peregrine falcons, swooping

       Whales, blowing

       Seals, barking

       Dolphins, jumping

       Puffins, (not Porgs)

       Jellyfish, floating

        and a Dragon, (maybe not).

Friday 14th September

Yesterday the children had an exciting day celebrating Roald Dahl Day. They worked with the children in Year 4 on a number of Roald Dahl inspired activities and showed that they could work collaboratively on different projects.


Friday 7th September

Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely summer break. The children have come back full of enthusiasm and are settling well into their new class.

The children have all taken a new reading diary and reading book home today. Please can they make sure they have these in school every day as we have an AR reading session after lunch each day. In key stage 2 we use the reading diaries differently to how they used them last year. The children fill them in themselves, recording the date they started a book along with the title and book level. Then, when they have finished the book, they record their quiz result.
