Kites Class: Moving up, designing our dream Secondary School

Kites Class: Welcome Back!

It has been great to have some of our Year 6 back!  We have researched and created fact files on William Shakespeare’s life.  We have thoroughly enjoyed learning more about his life and the wonderful plays he wrote.  As you can see we have also been making the most of the fantastic weather, playing within our allocated zone-  the Forest Area.


KS1: Great Fire of London Art

We mixed our topic with our art to create some vibrant silhouette pictures of the burning London sky line. We think they turned out great!

Everyone tried really hard to make their tunnels look effective as well. We were all proud of our end results. Here are a few of them.


Penguin, Puffin and Parrot Class: Stratton Fire Visit

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Stratton Fire fighters at the beginning of March. We learnt about firefighting today and thought carefully about how different it was in 1666 when The Great Fire of London broke out. It was so much fun climbing up into the fire engine and squirting the hose! A massive thank you to the firefighters….we had a
