Carol Concert with Havering Singers

On Saturday  evening 17th December, our choir sang at St Michael's Church, Gidea Park. 
This is the third time we have been invited back to sing with the Havering Singers,
which is a local choir of adults, conducted by Keith Motson.
 We sang two songs by ourselves, and two more complicated pieces with the Havering singers.

 We sang beautifully and had a great time!
If you would like to join the choir, come along to weekly rehearsals on Thursday lunchtimes
with Mrs Dowler and Mrs Hind.

Topic - Year 2 - What was our school like 100 years ago?

In our topic this year we have been learning our the past.

This week we have been learning about what Suttons Primary was like in the past. We received a letter for a pupil who was at the school over 70 years ago. He told us that the school was called Suttons Lane Primary. He said there was a late monitor, that the uniform was brown and that you had to go home for your lunch!

Today we participated in an old fashioned lesson. We were given some old fashioned names and had a new teacher called Mistress Staples.  Mistress Staples was very strict.  We had to recite the Alphabet, not talk and sit up straight.

After our old fashioned lesson we decided to visit our new school to see what our future school will be like. We visited our new classroom and are very excited to move in!!

Reading road - New books for year 4!

Last academic year, class 3AK moved around the reading road the most times as a class. As a result they won £50 to spend on books for their reading corner.

Year 4 selected books that they would like to read and they have now arrived.

Enjoy reading your new books Year 4!

Have you been around the reading road yet?

 Read 5 times at home and get your diary signed to move around each station. Move around the whole road to receive a bookmark or book!

Christmas Pen pals - Year 5

Today in our French lesson, pupils wrote festive greetings to their new pen pals in Belgium.

They are  the same age as us, but they are in  Year 4 in their school.
This is because children start school a year later where they live.

We're sure the pupils at the Ecole Communale de St Pierre
will enjoy getting cards all the way from England.
We look forward to receiving cards from them in January.
