This morning, KS2 thoroughly enjoyed a Music Workshop led by the composer Liz Radford, who has composed lots of well known TV theme tunes including 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?' and Peppa Pig!

Year 6 Debating

Yesterday Owls class and the year 6 class from Lulworth were part of a parliamentary debate with a speaker and two sides: one side representing whether or not a stranger should be allowed to stay on the Island ( A book called The Island about a refugee.) and one side against him staying. The motion was discussed by all Members of Parliament with a speaker controlling the motion. At the end the total votes were counted and it was only a marginal of 19 -13 majority that the man should stay. This was a great opportunity for our children to listen to other's opinions, to agree or disagree and even a few members changed their minds at the end. They grew in confidence to speak out in public especi

Squirrels Visitors

We have taken advice this week from the experts and have learnt from them the importance of planning and designing before starting a task..... such as building a new house for the Three Little Pigs. We have learnt the importance of compassion and being kind to others, helping others as much as possible. We have learnt the importance of working together as a team to achieve great things. Checking those work boots are Squirrel proof ! Joshua shows his dad how to wear a beret properly. Sergeant Flude teaching the class how to salute....as they will now do every time Mr. Charman enters the room. Jacob finds out why a hard hat is called a hard hat !

Squirrels First Week of 2019!

It might have only been four days for the children in school but we have been busy. We have been outside planting bulbs (some Squirrels were certain they had seen them growing within half an hour of covering the bulbs in soil!); We have begun to design and build a new house for the Three Little Pigs - we have received two letters from the Three Little Pigs asking for advice about how to deal with the Big Bad Wolf. After some discussion we wrote letters back to the three pigs. We even had to get the hoover out on one day to clean up a mess in the classroom; usefully the children decided the mess had been made by the Big Bad Wolf and was nothing to do with us ! A special mention must be made a
