Our outstanding school
On Tuesday, the Kingfishers had the chance to practice their French skills in our French Cafe. They took turns to order their chosen foods by speaking only French, and to take and serve orders for their friends. They had the chance to try baguettes, croissants, pain au chocolate, brie, camembert.....and snails! Some of the children were feeling very adventurous, and Mrs Grant too!
Well done Kingfishers...Très bien!
Today, our Y6 pupils Hannah and James went to Riverside school for their third Able Writers event.
They had the opportunity to meet and work with Nick Toczek, a writer from Bradford who writes poetry books, novels, magazine articles and songs, as well as presenting a radio show and doing magic tricks!
Our Kingfishers have been learning about the Sikh faith and exploring what is means to be a Sikh. On Thursday 8th June, we had a visit from Suki Mathara. She told us what it was like to practise Sikhism and gave us an insight into what her family do as part of their faith. We learned about the 5 K's that Sikhs wear and special places that they visit. The children asked some insightful questions, showing a great deal of respect, and they could later remember a lot of facts about Sikhism. Well done Kingfishers and thank you to Suki for coming to visit us!
For our final term we are stepping back into the Victorian era and the start of the industrial revolution. The homework sheet is attached.
