Totally Awesome Acting in Year 4!

This week, the children have been exploring their new text, Bad Guys, further and have had such fun acting out chapter three of the comic book titled: Mission, Like Totally Impossible.















"You could tell that Shark was feeling nervous because the writing was written in a wobbly way, as though he was shaking with fear", Iniya, Birch. 

They have enjoyed exploring the characters further and their hilarious traits - they're good guys really; they just have a bad reputation!

We looked at the features of comic books together and discussed the use of creative pictures and fonts to express how the characters are feeling.

















"It was so much fun acting out the characters; especially when we all shouted out LOCO and made our craziest faces!" Shajia, Larch

"I like how the writer uses onomatopoeia for effect - this where the word sounds like what it is describing. For example: crash! bang! and tap tap tap." Ife, Ash

We ended today's lesson in deep thought. We asked the children: is it ethical to do something illegal if it is for good reasons? We had some great discussion and there was definitely a divide in opinion! We have asked the children to go home and pose the question to their families - it will be interesting to see what everyone at home thinks as well!

As always, outstanding work, year 4!

Spectacular Sporting in the Sunshine - Year 4

Year 4 have had such a brilliant afternoon in the sunshine developing their athletic skills. The children participated enthusiastically in a range of activities to improve their agility and cardiovascular fitness.

We were also so impressed with the excellent coordination that was shown when the children practised their ball work; they were able to work confidently with their teammates to demonstrate superb throwing and catching. 




"I feel like I'm getting better at the trail run!" - Lukas, Birch

"Parkour was so much fun, I learnt how to sequence my movements." - Nicole, Larch

"Spinning the American football today was tricky but I managed to get it in the end!" - Iyinope, Ash


It was wonderful to see the children work so well together, demonstrating equal measures of reciprocity and a healthy sense of competition.

Keep up the amazing work, year 4!

Gravitational Geniuses in Year 3



 Today in Year 3 the children concluded their Science topic on ‘Forces and Magnets’ by looking at gravity. The children made their own parachutes and released them outside seeing which parachute landed first, looking at the matter of each one.


Anish - “Gravity is a force that pulls you to the ground.”

Aliza - “Without gravity we would float around the room.”

Lucas - “There is no gravity on the moon.”

Zuriel -“The heavier the object the quicker it will fall.”
