In Year 3 the children have been learning about Knights and Castles. As part of this topic they have learned the story of 'St George and the Dragon'. Today the children worte a character description of St George.
Here is what Izza wrote:
St. George is a knight and he has a shield with a blood cross on it. He wears his suit of armour everywhere because he never knows when he has to slay dragons. He has a sharp lance to kill dragons and other creatures. St. George is stronger than a hard piece of wood. He is gentle, caring, clever and strong. He travels helping people who are in danger. St George take his horse everywhere because if the dragon was about to eat someone he could charge fast on his white horse. He wears a red cape and it is redder then blood.
Keep up the great descriptions Year 3!

Today is the international day of peace. To mark this day each class has been producing things, which have been shared in a special assembly. Classes had produced prayers, doves, poems, origami cranes and even refugee tents! The day ended with the school singing the peace day song 'no wars will stop us singing'.
Let's keep spreading the message of peace!

Today Y4C began their project 'There's no place like home'. During the topic the class will be studying homes, houses and property. We kicked off the project by playing the property game Monopoly. As well as being great fun, the game provided lots of opportunities to improve our maths such as money and calculation skills. We found out the meaning of vocabulary in the game such as auction, rent and tax. I was very impressed with the way the children played cooperatively, helping one another.

The image above is a 'Wordle' version of our school development plan. Wordle is a free web site that takes any text document and creates a montage where the words used most often are the largest. It's good to see learning as the biggest word!
Also during the day we explored the meaning of' 'In God's family we love, grow and learn'. We decide to change this statement to, 'Together in God's family we love, grow and learn', because it is so important that we work together to improve ourselves and our school. I look for ward to exploring our mission statement with children soon.
We look forward to the community - families and children, returning to school tomorrow.
