Year 7 have made a great start in English this term. They have been writing a description of a character of their choice as an initial writing assessment. The learning lamps on the desk are turned on to signify silent, focused writing time. Great work Year 7 👏
Year 6 have made a great start to their first topic – World War 1. At the weekend they had to find interesting facts to share in class. Amelie even brought in a bayonet, shell case, barbed wire, lead shots and family medals! Well done everyone 🌟
In their first German lessons of the Autumn Term, Year 7 and 8 children enjoyed finding out about the German tradition of giving a “Schultüte” on a child’s first day at school. A Schultüte is a brightly coloured cardboard cone, filled with stationary for school and a few sweet treats, that children receive from their parents on their first day. Year 7 and 8 discussed the tradition and then had fun making their own Schultüte to give to each other. It was a lovely, lively and rather sticky way to start the term!
