Olga da Polga, who is that?

We have begun exploring the background to our new story, Olga da Polga.  It is a Michael Bond story about a guinea pig.  We are looking forward to finding out about her adventures.

This week we have been inferring what might have been in the holey box that arrived in our classroom.  It appeared along with hay, a water bottle, a toilet roll (!), and some oats.  Our ideas included an elephant (but the box was too small); a fish (but the box would disintegrate); a kitten (but they don’t eat oats) and a hamster (because the bottle looked like a hamster bottle and gives tiny water droplets).


Ask us what was in the box!

We have also been exploring William Morris’ art.  Look at our pictures that have been inspired by him.


It is lovely to be back together again after half term!


Our school is a thriving Christian community where our children are central to everything that we do. Adults and children enjoy working together to achieve their full potential.
