Theme park radio adverts. I hope you agree that the children did really well to make such professional sounding adverts; their locations are varied and their ideas were interesting and at times thoughtful (lavender scented bedding for example!) The first is by Abbie and Freya D

In pairs, we had to plan and write a radio script for a theme park. We were encouraged to use a slogan and persuasive language. Overall, we all did very well.

Pupil’s proud moments 2 Freya completed the Libraries Reading Challenge!
In the beginning, some of us were very competent sewers, Freya L and Ioana were particularly proficient; others found threading a needle difficult. However, with continued practice the majority created a moonscape by using different buttons/beads/fabrics to represent the mountains and craters on the moon surface.
