Today I had the pleasure of teaching Sunflower class all day and we kept the wonderful theme of Dinosaurs going with their topic. Everyone worked so hard and was so engaged in their learning, which was varied and interesting. Here are some of the class, who were happy to share their learning, talking about what they enjoyed from the day.

Sunflower class had a very exciting week last week as it was science week in school! As part of the week’s activities everyone was given the opportunity to work with some fantastic experiments that Mrs Tyler got from We the Curious. Also, we all got to visit the amazing Explorer Dome and Sunflower class have been thinking about what they enjoyed the most from their experience. Here they are:
This afternoon Thistle class took to the airwaves with a live radio show on Westwood radio. Broadcasting to, literally the world, everyone had the opportunity to read some of their amazing writing from their Under the Sea topic and to step behind the microphone to have their first experience of live radio and how well they did.
With Lewis, Alice and May hosting the show, plenty of listeners – thank you everyone – and lots of texts from their audience, the children made me so proud with their confidence and professionalism. You can enjoy our fantastic afternoon again here and here are some behind the scenes photos from Thistle class studio!

Thistle Class have been enjoying the book The Night Pirates. In the story, Tom joins the rough, tough crew of Girl Pirates on an adventure. They sail to an island where they steal a treasure chest from a crew of lazy, scared Grown-up Pirates, led by Captain Patch. Using this story as inspiration and as a model, the children created their own pirate story. Here are the children from Reception telling you their stories.
