The children gave some lovely feedback in the Pupil Survey - "The sports competitions are great. There are no bullies. It's better here than my last school because it's quieter and you can get on with your work. You always have someone to go to. It's kind, caring and well-organised. What would you change - nothing - it's great just as it is!"

Busy in Macbeth class.

In science, we have been learning about the properties of materials – we started off by trying to guess the materials in several feely bags around the class using adjectives to describe their properties. We then had to choose 5 different materials to test for flexibility, hardness, magnetism, transparency and permeability. Once we had finished that, we explained how each material was fit for its purpose. (Beau)

In English, we have been reading a book called “Winter’s Child” by Angela McAllister. It is about a boy called Tom who wishes it could be winter forever. However, because his wish came true, nana gets ill from lack of food and warmth.  The message of the book is “Be careful what you wish for!” In the end, Spring comes and we are writing a sequel called “Spring’s Daughter.” I really enjoyed this book because the illustrations were beautiful and the words were inspiring. (Tane)

In history, we have started our Crime and Punishment topic.  We have been learning about how Romans punished criminals – if you were rich, you could be exiled (that means sent away from your country forever) if you stole something. If a Roman killed their father, the punishment was to be tied up in a sack with a snake, a rooster, a dog and a monkey and thrown in a river! We have also looked at Anglo-Saxon punishments: if the jury could not decide whether someone was guilty, they would have their hands and feet tied together and thrown in to a river – they believed that God would decide who was innocent or guilty depending on if they sank or floated. (Joel)
