Bath Literature Festival

Today the children really enjoyed meeting Paul and Caroline. Both authors shared some of their story and we learnt the seven steps of how to be a great story-writer:

  1. A Problem (dilemma)
  2. Desire (something the main character wants)
  3. Opponent (Not always evil)
  4. Plan (Journey)
  5. Battle
  6. Knowledge Gained (or prize won)
  7. New Level (Happy or Sad Ending)

 

Welcome Back

Welcome Back to a new school year! The children are excited about their new topic: Ancient Egypt.  Parents have the opportunity to come into Kestrel class on Tues 10th Sep at 2.45pm for a ‘welcome afternoon’.

Yr 5 Cricketers

Yesterday the Yr 4, 5 cricket team enjoyed a day at the Sulis Club.  We ended victorious with a victory over Oldfield Park Junior School with an excellent over from Samuel Taylor-Weekes.  Well done to all the boys who played.

WW2 Walking Tour

This morning, Kestrel class braved the rain and headed to town where we had the most fascinating tour (thanks to Adrian) of the city.  He interweaved the history of the buildings with the dramatic events which unfolded on the third weekend of April, 1942. A fantastic morning was had by all.
