Monday 6th September 2021

It was wonderful to welcome back Ocean Class today.  We had an excellent first day, launching our new discover topic.  We all dressed up in Tudor dress and in the afternoon were treated to a sumptuous Tudor banquet at The Pig!





Our PSHE this Autumn term is all about working together.  Here we were working as a team to build bridges.


In RE, we are thinking about the question 'What do Christians believe about God?'  When we were exploring the meaning of this quote, "How clearly the sky reveals God's glory! How plainly it shows what he has done! Each day announces it to the following day; each night repeats it to the next. No speech or words are used; no sound is heard; yet their message goes out to all the world and is heard to the ends of the earth.", we went outside and picked and ate the apples off the apple trees in our playground!


And our Christian value this term is friendship.  Here are the friendship bracelets we made for each other.




Here are some additional photographs of our learning in the academic year 2020-2021
