We will continue to work hard to get the best improvement out of the children and to make the year as enjoyable as we can.  As parents/guardians it would be of great benefit to aid us in this by getting the children to read for 20 minutes each evening and to sign their diaries to say they have done so.  We expect the pupils to write into their diaries what book they have read along with what pages and parents/guardians to just initial.


Urban Pioneers

Image result for urban pioneers


Our topic for this term is Urban Pioneers.

Hop on the bus and take a trip downtown, where the lights are bright and every street has a story to tell.

Explore with fresh eyes the art of the city, then capture a moment in time – perhaps a reflection on a building or a shadow passing by. Make a map of your home town and find out how things have changed. Has time changed town life for the better?

How could you improve the urban environment? Maybe add more colour? More light? More things to do, or perhaps a plaza with a comfortable bench or two?

Or maybe, like Emil, the city astounds you with its sights and sounds and people rushing by.

Now light up the city with creations of your own….. a statue, a light show, a monument or street art. The possibilities are endless so what will you choose?

You’re an urban pioneer… get ready to go!!
