Mrs Grierson is our teacher and Miss Curtis is the class LSA Monday – Thursday and Mrs Marno is the LSA on Fridays. We had so much fun exploring the transdisciplinary theme “How we express ourselves” last term that we have decided to carry on with it this term too. Our central idea is ‘Visual Arts may influence the choices we make’. We are thinking about how advertising and aesthetics influence our decisions, as well as exploring how people use the Arts to express their ideas and feelings.
We have recently learned a few facts about the artist Edvard Munch and his The Scream painting. This sparked the inspiration for our corridor display and continued nicely from our learning last term about the link between emotion and colour.
The stage has mini versions of children from Lion Class painting their own versions of The Scream on mini easels!
We have a huge focus on our learner attributes in Lion Class and throughout the whole academy. We celebrate children when they have shown one of these attributes with learning points, house points and a star on our wall to document what they have said or done.

Times table Rock stars:
We have sent home the children’s times table rock star logins. I hope the children enjoy learning their times tables. There will be weekly school based competitions – let’s make Lion class the KS1 winners!

Daci is learning really well. I love the fact that the children are pushed to their full potential.
It was very nice to be able to view Oliver’s work and see how he is progressing. Thank you for the opportunity.

Thanks for inviting me to do a story session with your school. I found the whole experience very rewarding as both children, and teachers were open to engage with me, and participated in listening to the stories, dressing up, singing and dancing.

“The behaviour of the Year 5 children was a credit to the school when we were out on the road.”
