Year 6 kicked off National Poetry Day with a fantastic assembly which told us a lot about poetry including a reading of the oldest known poem - 4000 years old. Throughout the assembly the children recited a total of nine poems including 'Freedom Poem' as freedom is the theme of this year's day.

All of the children have settled so well into F2. We have been familiarising ourselves with the class routines and how we use the areas in our indoor and outdoor learning environment. We have begun our 'All About Me' topic by thinking about ourselves and what makes us different and special. We have made self portraits, talked about our...
