Children were invited to take part in some secular meditation and proved to be adept at concentrating on their calm breathing. A big thank you to the centre for hosting the children and as always to the adults who volunteered to help on the trip.

On Friday afternoon, children in Key Stage 2 were treated to a visit from the author of ‘The Incredible Billy Wild’, the incredible Joanna Nadin! The children have been loving her books, including ‘Joe All Alone’ and the ‘Penny Dreadful’ series. She ran some brilliant workshops in which she shared some amazing dog facts, insights into being an author and how we can all be incredible if we face our fears. We hope that Joanna will come back to visit us again next year!

Copperfield Class Assembly!


Wednesday saw the turn of Copperfield class in Year 3 to perform a stunning assembly on the theme of Ancient Egypt. The class have been studying how Ancient Egyptian myths became important historical sources when finding out about Egyptian beliefs. The assembly addressed the Egyptian’s opinions of the gods and their belief in the ‘Duat’ or afterlife that symbolised life after death. The children performed with supreme confidence and sang what might be the song of the school year. Congratulations to Miss Spears for all her hard work and a massive well done to the children.
