Free Verse Poetry

We have been exploring the features of free verse poetry and have looked at a number of poems, discussed the poetic devices used and worked with our partners to perform individual poems.

Throughout the week , we have focused on specific poetic devices such as metaphors, similes and alliteration to write our own free verse poems.


This week, we have been researching about an animal in order to write a non-chronological report.

We included a catchy title, introduction, subheadings and amazing facts about our chosen animal.

Take a look at some examples of our work.

Amazing art

This week during our English lessons, we have been building up ideas to write a non-chronological report about an animal and have looked at features such as its appearance.

Our art lesson focused on creating artwork inspired by an animal’s skin. Take a look at what we have produced so far.

Happy Red Nose Day

On Friday, we celebrated Red Nose Day.

Amazingly, this year’s red noses are plastic free and made from plant-based materials (after a campaign led by school children).

This year, we wore our hair very differently-some of dyed our hair to create a rainbow effect and some of us chose to sport messy hairstyles.

Welcome Back

What a super week we have had.

On Wednesday, we began our drama sessions.


During out PHSE session, we were thinking about what a friend is and discussed which qualities we look for in a friend.

We played charades to act out ‘friendship qualities’ and ‘non-friendship qualities’ whilst the rest of the class had to guess which quality was being acted out.

Well-being Day

This week, we celebrated our second pupil well-being day.

The morning session looked at our mental well-being where we were able to complete a number of activities such as: making a caring tree, being sleepy starfish, cloud watching and writing kindness poems.

Our afternoon was full of activities which encouraged us to be more active. These included: dancing to our favourite songs, playing balloon volleyball, building an obstacle course and creating a poster about different ways we can keep physically active.


This week, we have been designing our very own healthy pizzas inspired by a specific country.

We thought about what a balanced diet is and used the ‘eat well plate’ to consider how much we should eat in certain food groups.

We created our own pizza plates and some of us even made our own pizzas!

Children’s Mental Health Week

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week- the theme is Express Yourself.

We have been promoting this through our Pupil Wellbeing Day on Monday.

There were lots of fun activities to choose from including: a letter hunt, making a sock puppet, redesigning a front cover of our favourite book and writing postcards to say thank you. Take a look at some of our work.
