Welcome back! I hope you had a lovely Easter break!
We are looking forward to a busy two terms with SATs, lots of athletics and sporting events, trips and music workshops in addition to preparing for the school play!
Class 4 have been thinking about our value this term- Creativity, and what it means to us. Here is an acrostic poem we wrote together as a class:
Creativity is everywhere, you just have to look,
Realising anything is possible,
Expressing yourself and your feelings,
Adding to the world,
Thinking outside the box and taking chances,
Imagination, individuality and invention,
Vision which is unique,
Imagining the world in a different way,
The freedom to express yourself as you wish,
You can spread your wings and fly!
By Class 4.
