Huge congratulations to Mars for hitting the ground running. The week was inevitably disrupted by the 11 Plus but the students coped magnificently. The photograph shows them in pensive mood preparing themselves for the test.
This week they have studied a local saint in RE and in Science they learnt about light (ask them why the sky is blue). Maths has focussed on large numbers while Literacy has given the students the chance to write a story based on "Believe, Achieve, Enjoy" and to write a letter of application for the roles of house captain. This gave them the chance to develop their letter writing skills and I fear to explore the concept of poetic licence. In music they excelled, Ms Green was nothing less than delighted with their attitude.
They also kindly acted as reading buddies for Year 3, again their attitude was a credit to the school.
