Class Novel - Spring 2021

The Night Bus Hero by Onjali Q. Rauf


'The boy's an absolute menace.'
'He's a bully. A lost cause!'
'Why can't he be more like his sister?'

I've been getting into trouble for as long I can remember. Usually I don't mind 'cos some of my best, most brilliant ideas have come from sitting in detention.

But recently it feels like no one believes me about anything - even when I'm telling the truth! And it's only gotten worse since I played a prank on the old man who lives in the park.

Everyone thinks I'm just a bully. They don't believe I could be a hero.

But I'm going to prove them all wrong...

Class Novel - Autumn 1

Charlotte's Web by E.B White


Wilbur didn’t want food, he wanted love. He wanted a friend – someone who would play with him.


One morning a little girl called Fern rescues a runt and names him Wilbur. But then Wilbur is sent to live on a farm where he meets Charlotte, a beautiful large grey spider. They become best friends and, when Wilbur is faced with a dreadful fate, Charlotte must find a very clever way to save him.

Harvest Festival

Whilst we have not been able to celebrate Harvest Festival in the usual way at school, in our RE lesson this week we have learnt lots about the traditions of the festival and when it first started. We researched our own facts and created some very informative fact files. Here are some examples of our work.

National Poetry Day 2020

We have enjoyed celebrating National Poetry Day 2020 by reading and writing our own poems. We read poems by John Hegley to give us some inspiration. Here are some examples of our work.
