Year 4 - Mary Poppins!

Since returning to school in September, our year 4 pupils have been working alongside Brookside and Mead to study the story of Mary Poppins. To kick off their project, they watched the original film.

Year 1 Spinebreakers - Peter Rabbit Book Club

Our Year 1 Spinebreakers have continued reading the stories created by Beatrix Potter. This week they shared 'The Tale of The Flopsy Bunnies'. They heard how Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail bravely entered Mr McGregor's garden to help themselves to some overgrown lettuces. Luckily, the bunnies were able to escape a large sack that Mr McGregor had stuffed them into!

The children then wrote about the bunnies - Ellie-Mae described them as being brown bunnies who enjoy picking, and eating, blackberries. Kyla wrote about their brother, Peter, who was a little bit naughty at times by not listening to his mother's instructions!


Next week, they will begin reading 'The Tale of Mr Tod'.

Click on Peter Rabbit below and take a look at Beatrix Potter's website. Here you will find lots of games, stories, author information and printable activities...

Year 6 Spinebreakers Visit Waterstones!

Our year 6 Spinebreakers were the first to visit Waterstones to purchase a selection of new books for the school library.


Aimee picked up a copy of David Walliams', Mrs Stink, along with Emma Carroll's, 'The Girl Who Walked on Air'.


'The Boy at the Back of the Class' appealed to Joshua - he is keen to find out more about this character. His second choice was 'The House with Chicken Legs' - this one Joshua is currently reading, so we look forward to hearing more about it!


Ananya chose three stories-in-one in a copy of Malory Towers by Enid Blyton. She was also eager to pick up Alisha Dixon's second book in her series of the Lightning Girl. 


Nikola went for, 'There's a Yeti in the Playground', and 'The Hundred and One Dalmatians'.


Ashlee, our newly appointed Spinebreaker, picked Jacqueline Wilson's latest books, My Mum Tracy Beaker - Ashlee has a copy of this book at home and assures me it's a good read! Her second book was C. S. Lewis', The Chronicles of Narnia.

The Spinebreakers have taken home one of each of their books to read over the next week or so, once they have finished they will return them for all to borrow.
