A week full of Roots of Empathy, Write a Book and podcasts for you this week! Let’s get started:

  • Sixth class recorded an excerpt of the ‘I have a dream’ speech for Martin Luther King day. You can listen to it here.
  • 4th class posted some astounding facts on Twitter this week about dangerous creatures. The Mermaid Theatre were very impressed:



  • 2nd class had Roots of Empathy with Baby T this week. You can watch the Animoto of his visit here.
  • Fifth class worked with a very cool website this week to learn more about maps – you can read all about it here.

In other news:

  • The Creative Schools after-school club started with Eduard, Jordan, Luke and Kevin from 6th class. They planned their stop-motion clip and began making figures. Looking forward to the films, boys!
  • All other after-school clubs have also started back. In Singing Club, ‘Happy’ by Pharrell was a huge hit! The excellent football league continued with four teams of players from 4th, 5th and 6th taking part.
  • We heard from one of our past pupils! Adam wrote our very first blog post and lives in Canada now. It was great to hear from him.
  • Write-A-Book is progressing nicely. Most of the classes are typing their stories at this stage. 2nd and 5th worked together during the week to help edit 2nd class’s stories:
  • Second class really enjoyed their dance class with Sue this week – they were dancing along to Riverdance!
  • Kia was knitting this week – she’s making Polly a scarf!
