We’re the Macaws!

Welcome to our class


We’re lively and positive, brilliant and bright.

We fly high and make the most of every day!


“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.”

Table Tennis at Harrogate Racquets 

We have had our first session at Harrogate Racquets Club learning to  play Table Tennis. We practised rolling the ball across the table and then moved onto trying to get the highest rally! Finn and Kai were the champions of the individual rally challenge. A big thank you to Ella's mum for helping out with our trip.

We have been enjoying doing the Daily Mile this week! Every day, we will be going out onto the running track to run, jog or walk for 15 minutes. We will aim to increase the number of laps we can run each week. 

Our Class Story

We have started reading 'The Butterfly Lion' by Michael Morpurgo as our first class story for the next couple of weeks. 


Here is the blurb... 


€"All my life I'll think of you, I promise I will. I won't ever forget you."€


Bertie rescues an orphaned white lion cub from the African veld. They are inseparable until Bertie is sent to boarding school far away in England and the lion is sold to a circus. Bertie swears that one day they will see one another again, but it is the butterfly lion which ensures that their friendship will never be forgotten.

First Week Back!

This week in Macaws, we have spent time getting to know each other better. We have made birthday cards, bookmarks and also worked hard on some lovely pieces of writing telling us all about our summer. We have also worked together as a class to write our class charter and thought carefully about which rules we think are the most important so that we can have a safe and happy classroom. We have had a busy but excellent start to the year! 


Our P.E. lessons will be on Wednesday, when we will be going to Harrogate Racquets for Table Tennis lessons, and on Friday in school each week. 

We will be going to the school library on a Thursday to change our reading books.
