Robin class had an artist called Kirsty come in on the 8th of February. We took an interview of Ellis, Ollie and Tiana. Ellis commented: ‘We gathered up wrappers then cut them up and stuck them in the right places. It took them 6 hours! They made a GAINT caterpillar, handprints, butterflies and pictures to create the story of the very hungry caterpillar.’ Ollie commented: ‘For the caterpillar, the head and the body was done in the morning, the ears, eyes and nose were done at lunchtime, and the background was done in the afternoon. His favourite bit was probably making your own butterflies. There were 6 groups with 3 or 4 people in a group. The caterpillar was the best one by far. On a scale of 100% he thinks it is 99%.’ Tiana commented ‘The caterpillar was the most fun, and it would be 100%.The most fun part of the caterpillar was the middle section, the bit she made. The make your own hands were 2nd place, and the butterflies were you fold it were 3rd place.

For our next value (last week) we will be showing teamwork. Teamwork is fun when you get along. Teamwork requires helping each other. All of us people at school are in an important team.
Helping each other at maths, skipping, PE and all other things that other people may need help in.
Last week the girls from Yr4 and Yr5 had a work shop with Sophie Allen about team work. You can also use teamwork in the human knot, the silent birthday, chain tag and bulldog.
This is a picture of team work in golf. The years 5, 4 and 3. They have been playing golf and have been helping each other.

During our second week we focused on Respect, and tried to be respectful to each other for the week. We were all very respectful that week, things such as … holding doors for one another, letting teachers go first at the door if they are waiting, to get to their classes line, speaking to friends or teachers in a nice way.
All of the school were very respectful and in assembly Matilda Chambers got the headteachers award because she was really respectful to her fellow class mates. She was also always holding the door for one another. She was awesome that week
Also we had Reverend Buckman in to talk about respect. We were very respectful and nobody was being mean to any teachers or other pupils/or best friends.
