We are sharing our weekly news every Friday.

Week 3+

Samoa class have had a very positive week settling into the new academic year.


The pupils have worked extremely hard this week across all subjects and the class team are extremely proud of all the pupils have achieved. During this week we have carried out scientific investigations measuring our pulse before and after exercise.

We have also learnt all about figurative language in English and how to respectfully debate a topic and respect others opinions, when they are different to our own. The class project is looking at Alchemy Island and even though this quest is just beginning we have already deciphered a riddle and worked as a team to locate key features.


This week, we have focused on finding inspiration for our very own magical portal and using photo editing software to make it our own! Samoa class are looking forward to developing our subject knowledge across all topics over the next term.


Week 2+

It has been lovely to welcome back Samoa class to school this week.

We have been working hard in every lesson, from looking at adjectives and comparing poems to paintings in English, working on column addition and working out missing numbers in maths to looking at our project topic, ‘Alchemy Island.’ We have also been testing our fitness levels in PE, to measure some baseline stats to see if we can get more fit over the course of the year..
