It's not boring at all because we get the SPaG crown, the Maths medal and the listening ears. You get to play games like Articulate!, Invisible Man (a spelling game) and the times-table challenge. Mrs Lohoar, who is my teacher, taught us how to do relative clauses. She also taught us how to write news … Continue reading Thoughts on Year 5…
This year our pupils in all year groups have had the chance to work with two wonderful artists from “Artboat”: Soo and Charlie. There is some amazing artwork around school and the latest masterpieces to go up are the Harry Potter sculptures created by the Y5s and the Solar System created by the Y2s. Our school hall looks amazing. We are really going to miss Soo and Charlie, but we know, in a few years, we will invite them back for more stunning art sessions.
We had an amazing time when musicians and singers from Sheffield Music Hub came in and performed for us. They told a story using words, songs and music. The story was ‘Where the Wild Things are”.

Ellie: It was really funny when they told us what the translations were.
Cody W: I enjoyed it and it was really fun. I liked the howling.
Saron: Their voices went really high and it sounded incredible.

First we thought about questions that we would ask a … Continue reading In the Hot Seat!

Our Star, meanwhile, has been absolutely amazing in reading, writing … Continue reading Last Week’s Superstars
We just covered a breaking-news story on a fire in the Amazon rainforest. (What luck: news for us to cover during our rainforest topic!) First we watched a clip of the fire, and then we read a press release about it so that we could clarify some details. After quickly writing our headlines, we got to … Continue reading Back to the Newsroom…
