Year 3 and Year 4 Viking Day
Year 3 and Year 4 had lots of fun on their Viking Day. Over the course of the day, all 3 classes took part in an amazing workshop in the hall led by a Viking specialist from ‘The Drama Hut’ called Astrid. The children journeyed back in time to Anglo Saxon England in one of the famous longboats. With Astrid as they guide, through improvisation, song, riddles and movement, the children explored life during the fascinating Viking period. As well as the Viking workshop, the children also enjoyed doing other Viking activities in their classrooms too. Overall, it was a really great day!

Author visit- Steve Skidmore
This afternoon, Steve Skidmore, our Patron of Reading, visited Year 3 and Year 4 to talk about being an author. Several children from each class in KS2 were also incredibly lucky to be chosen to sit and eat their lunch with him, as well as being able to ask him lots of questions. I think it was a lunchtime that Steve or the children won’t forget in a hurry!
British Values Week
This week, Year 3 and Year discussed what individual liberty means. The children now know that individual liberty means being able to make certain choices, like what to do in their spare time, what they eat and the friends they have. Everyone is now more able to understand everyone’s right to individual liberty. Just as no one should stop our individual liberty, we should not prevent anyone else’s.

Throughout the week, Year 3 and Year 4 have discussed what bullying is and how we can work together to stop it.

Bullying is not tolerated at our school and we have a clear policy on how to prevent, identify and respond to bullying behaviour. For our H.W, we produced posters reinforcing the important message about anti-bullying.
Welcome back! Here’s to another fun and busy half term ahead!
