The day the iPads quit!


On Thursday 28th of March, year 5 were shocked to find their iPads had vanished. All that was left on the tables were notes from the iPads saying things like, “We quit. We are leaving!” Year 5 then went on a writing mission to get them back.

We were all very regretful and guilt-ridden about ourselves, so we wrote a formal, persuasive letter to say our apologies. A few days later, once we had written persuasive enough letters, the iPads returned back to our classroom iPad trolley.

Y6 sharing their big book with the Y2s

On World Book Day, 6A worked really hard to create their own big book for their Y2 reading buddies based on the story of The Jolly Postman by Allan Ahlberg. We also linked it to the Julia Donaldson stories that the Y2s had been reading with the Jolly Postman visiting various characters including Zog and The Highway Rat. The Y6s really enjoyed putting the book together and had a lot of fun reading it to the Y2s as well!

Our class have been building up strength in their upper bodies to prepare themselves to be able to complete handstands. This is an advanced gymnastic movement that would even challenge secondary school children. We are delighted with the progress we have made and Mrs Cant has been particularly impressed with the teamwork and support displayed during the PE sessions. Well done Y6 Cant.
