  • Coding Superstars

    Published 18/09/23

    We are extremely proud of our pupils who participated in the Coding Workshop at Parkside Studio College. This was an exhilarating adventure for our little coders. Armed with creativity and determination, these young minds were able to create remarkable games which caused experienced gamers to think twice about how to navigate their games. A massive thank you to Parkside, Greg and Tiana for an amazing job at unearthing this extraordinary talent, and life-long skill in our children. Thank you to our parents, guardians and carers for celebrating this significant achievement with us.

  • Fruity Seaside Snack

    Published 14/07/23

    In Year 2, pupils have been learning to write instructional texts. We began by learning the features of an instructional text and completed an activity in order to write ‘How to make a rainbow fruit fish’. We used the fruit to create a fish made of slices of an apple, orange, kiwi, watermelon, pineapple, grapes and a cracker. Pupils saw an example of a fruit fish and they made their version of one. Finally, they got to enjoy their delicious and healthy snack! The following day, we wrote about how and what we did in order to complete making one. Pupils learned to correctly apply imperative verbs and used time connectives to make their instructions clear. They finished by drawing a diagram of their version of a fruit fish.

After lunch there was a tractor ride to see the animals grazing in the fields and the children finally went to play in the soft play area with big slides to play on.

  • Romans Year 3 Class Assembly

    As part of our Roman topic, Year 3 Ottawa put on a class assembly to show what they have been learning about different aspects of Roman life.
