Our book is set in the Victorian era so we studied a famous Victorian artist William Morris. We created wallpaper art inspired by his work. They are fantastic and the children are very proud of their work.

In Maths we went on a treasure hunt! We had to solve the word problems and then find the answers somewhere around the school.

On PowerPoint we created a balanced argument about one of the characters from Street Child. We confidently shared our arguments to the class.

Sports Week was so much fun. We had fantastic CHAMP skills and showed lots of Olympic and Paralympic values. Thank you to Jensen for taking some lovely pictures!
