The new half term has started with a new addition to Year 6. After the sad death of Elvis the bearded dragon, we now have a new member of Year 6 in the form of a tortoise. Children in Year 6 welcomed him enthusiastically and after proposing names - including 'Shelvis' and 'Morpurgo' - finally voted to call him 'Darwin'. Welcome Darwin - pictures to follow. Additionally, we have also been given a fish tank and tropical fish this week. Mr Newbert, our lead fish expert, has set the fish tank up in Lower Library for children to see.
In non-animal news, we also launched our new author of the moment. Having talked to the children, they suggested that Michael Morpurgo was the author we celebrated as a school next. Children have shown great enthusiasm and it was lovely to see children from 1T eagerly bringing in their own research on Michael Morpurgo and books they found with their families.
Year 3 finished their work with the Royal Ballet this week - sharing their dancing with their parents. Many have been chosen for the next round, to continue to get lessons from the Royal Ballet, and we encourage the selected children to make the most of this opportunity.
As we prepare for Remembrance Day children across the school have made poppies, with older children researching the names of soldiers who died in the War and including them in their poppy designs. Led by Mrs Shepherd and Miss Carter, our history subject leaders, all of the children's poppies have gone on display in the corridor; a display which is making everyone stop, take note and remember those who fought for us in wars. Pictures to follow. Poppies and poppy related stationary are available to buy from the office all next week.
