Write On 2016

Well done to everyone who completed a piece of writing for the Board of Studies Write On competition this term. Write On is an annual writing competition open to all primary students in Years 1 to 6. Using a photograph as a stimulus, students are asked to compose an imaginative piece of writing up to 500 words in length. We then had a ‘blind’ sharing session where volunteer readers anonymously read each others work. Congratulations to Layla, whose story The City was voted as the best from our class to represent Stage 3 in this competition. Have a read of our stories below.

Art Cave

Have a look at the terrific effort our students have made in Art Cave this term. Students have been doing ceramics and created some Olympic busts. Well done! As always, thanks to the amazing Jane for her time, creativity and initiative in running the Art Cave.
