Inquiry Learning

Year 3 visited Ferrymead Historic Park as part of their term 3 Inquiry. They were looking at changes over the last 100 years.

Writing comes to Life

This term for Writing Room 9 is exploring Fairy Tales. Each week they read a new fairy tale and write about the characters and their favourite parts. After reading The Three Little Pigs they made piggy biscuits and then became Big Bad Wolf and ate them all up. They were delicious!

Celebrating Change - Grandparents Day

This term the junior school's Inquiry has been Change. They hosted a Grandparents Day and the children asked lots of questions about what school was like when they were 5. Some children struggled to believe that no one had iPads or whiteboards when they were at school. They then presented their folk dancing items and invited their loved ones to join them.
