Last year, the Year 3 children were invited to be a part of Steve McQueen’s ‘Year 3′ project. McQueen chose this particular year group for the project because, he says, it is at seven and eight that children begin to “shed their solipsism and navigate the structures that shape their world.” On Tuesday 21st January, […]
On Wednesday afternoon, our Year 4 biologists got their hands dirty using their scientific observational skills.

The ukuleles also gave a lovely rendition of Deck the Halls. It […]

Following assemblies about democracy and the rule of law, the children in each year group took part in hustings. Lots of children gave speeches encouraging their peers to vote […]
