Art – Julie Mehretu
In art, we have been learning about the artist Julie Mehretu, and we have even been painting in the same style as she does. You can see some of work below!
Visit from a Local Author
On Tuesday 26th September, we were lucky enough to receive a visit from a local author named Richard Dodd. He came into the school and spoke to all of us!
Gerald the Giraffe
On Thursday 21st September, Robins and Sparrows had a special visitor. Gerald the Giraffe came to see the children and read his two favourite books. We listened to Room on the Broom and the Gruffalo. After that, we chose the part of the story we liked best and created a freeze frame of the scene. We even told our own stories to our friends.
We really enjoyed having Gerald in our school. We hope he can visit again soon.
Good teaching is allowing pupils to make up for previous gaps in their learning. Pupils have good attitudes to learning because teachers plan activities which maintain pupils interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.
The academy provides well for pupils of all abilities. The most able pupils are given work which is at the right level and are encouraged to do as well as they can and so they make good progress.
Pupils enjoy reading and use the well-stocked library to choose a different book each week. Daily reading sessions, together with well-taught phonics (the sounds that letters make) help to secure pupils good achievement in reading.
