Topic - Spring Term 2021
It's probably the most famous date in English history...we're travelling back to 1066!
These are troubled times and there is danger afoot. A much-loved king is dead and a French Duke has staked a claim for our kingdom. Not to mention all the other wannabe monarchs!
Discover a changing England, shaped by shires, protected by castles and ruled by foreign knights.
Use the famous Bayeux Tapestry to explore the significant events of 1066. What happened when, and how did William come to be called the Conqueror?
Are you ready for the Norman Invasion? Then don your armour and watch your back!

Children's Mental Health Week - 1st to 7th February
As it is Children's Mental Health week next week we thought it would be an ideal time to use our check-in's to reflect on how we are feeling.
The theme this year is 'express yourself' and we know we have lots of caring koalas, wondering wombats and creative chameleons out there.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts or ideas through creativity and doing activities that make you feel good.
1) Have a listen to the 'Lovely Day' song by Billy Ocean and the Young Voices Choir that Ms Norris will share next week
2) Rank your top 5 things that make you feel good - this can include favourite foods
3) 'Express yourself' by dressing up in your favourite clothes or coloured clothes to show how you are feeling, take a picture and post-it on your profile - can you then explain why you have chosen this
4) Choose an emotion or feeling and create a piece of art work to show this - please take a picture and post-it on your profile
5) If you are feeling a creative 'go for it gorilla' you might want to think how you could express yourself through writing or poetry, dance or music
Looking forward to seeing all photo creations - stay safe and well
