We're the Meerkats!

Welcome to our class.


We're alert and friendly, big-hearted and wise.

We help one another and work wonders together!

like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."

Our Class Book

Our Class Book 1
Our Class Book 2

Our first class book of the year is 'The Mozart Question' by Michael Morpurgo. We have chosen this book, as it links beautifully to our World War II topic this term.


Here is the blurb...

"The time has come, I think, not to lie anymore."


When cub reporter Lesley is sent to Venice to interview a world-renowned violinist, the journalist is told she can ask Paolo Levi anything about his life and career as a musician, but on no account must she ask him about the Mozart question; never the Mozart question.

Paolo, however, has realised he must finally reveal the truth.

Pupil Voice Groups

We have had a very busy week this week electing our Pupil Voice groups for Meerkats. Well done to all of the children, who gave a speech - they were very impressive. The elected Pupil Voice groups are now very excited about their new roles and responsibilities this year!

We have had a very busy first week in Meerkats. As well as getting to know each other better, we have made birthday cards, bookmarks, completed a piece of writing all about our summer and much more.  It has been a fantastic start to the year!
