Swashbuckle Lil

Year 3 and Year 4 visited the Time and Tide museum today to act out one of the Swashbuckle Lil stories and meet the author, Elli Woollard. We got really involved in acting out the story going around the museum hiding from Stinkbeard! We also met the author who talked to us about writing in rhyme, highlighting the importance of writing and telling us how fantastic it is being a writer.

It was a great opportunity for the children to learn new literary devices and interact with the characters.

WW1 Project

We have been learning all about WW1. We went to the memorial in the park and we also found out about two soldiers who attended our school – Leonard Frank Durrant and Sidney Cecil Durrant. We used the information we found out to write a biography about their lives and we also made a poppy wreath to remember the soldiers.
