This week is National Storytelling Week. To help celebrate this, the School Council have hosted a storytelling competition. Those who wanted to enter needed to write a story (true or made up) and hand it in to their class councillor. On Friday, the councillors got together to choose a selection of their favourite stories.

The children have outdone themselves this Tranmere Christmas; the table decorations, the dancing and the festive spirit on show were so great that we wanted to share. (Don’t panic 5/6; we’ve kept the dancing between us!)

To finish off our English Performance Poetry topic, we have planned and written our own poem based on a well-known Fairy Tale in groups. We used all of the techniques we have been learning about and came up with some fantastic ones! The hardest part was coming up with a bit of a twist to …

We also visited The DIG which gave the children a hands-on experience of being an archaeologist by digging for evidence in the digging pits and putting their enquiry skills to the test. There were many …

In English, we have been learning all about performance poetry, particularly in relation to fairy tales. We had a look at some examples and watched some poems being performed as well, we loved Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes. We then talked through all the different techniques that are used within these types of poems, particularly the …

Today marks the start of Anti-Bullying week for 2022. To show our support, we have all come to school dressed in odd/crazy socks! In classes, we have discussed that this represents how is it cool for us all to be different, and how we should never be unkind towards others because of their differences. Throughout …

In our meetings so far this half-term, School Council have discussed how they’d like a space pupils can go to, to just ‘chill out’ sometimes. As a group we came up with the idea of running a lunchtime club called ‘Chill out Tuesdays’. Here pupils can read, draw, craft, play chess, chat to their friends …
