Charlie’s Lost Chapter!!!

Wow! I’m so intrigued to find out what the rooms, characters and confectionary will be like! Y5s – have you got any ideas you’d like to share? What kind of character would you add? A kind, respectful, bucket-filling child or a nasty, spiteful, bucket-dipping disaster of a child…



Following on from today’s assembly, here is your next challenge. Write an acrostic poem, like Ms Stenhouse’s below, to represent what friendship means to you. Purple forms for the best ones! You can post it here, make a poster (digital or on paper), make a video or anything really to present your poem, but try to be creative.

Here’s Telma with her wonderful poem! She was the first pupil to get creative. Well done and thanks for filling our bucket to the very top!

And here’s Carla’s poem (Y5D). Carla certainly fills our bucket every time we see her with her endless positivity!

Here’s another entry from Louie (and friends). I’m sure you’ll agree, he made fabulous use of his iPad! He had sound on the original, but it hasn’t come out in Google Drive. That’s my challenge – to add the vocals… I will and then post it here. You will be able to see that it is more effective with them. What do you think of this version? Can you tell what apps he used?

Here’s the one with sound! We did it together… teamwork rules!



Wonderful Robotics Work!!!

Hi there,


Here is just a sample of some of the creative and interesting work that the children in the robotics club do. Absolutely amazing explanation from Fernando too. A purple form coming your way – keep up the cracking work!!!



World Smile Day!

Hi everyone,

Today is World Smile Day (and Teacher Appreciation Day, so I hope you were very kind to your teacher), so how was your day? Did you spread a smile and were you kinder than you need to be? I know lots of pupils gave me a splendid smile and really filled my bucket.  I hope your kindness challenge is going well. Let us know how your day was please.
