The Small Fish Podcast 10/07/2023

As we approach the end of the school year, our Year 6 pupils might be feeling a little anxious about the transition to Year 7.

The The Salvation Army United Kingdom and Ireland Territory have put together a series of podcasts to help Year 6 pupils come to terms with this period of adjustment.

The Small Fish Podcast 14 five-minute episodes to help children transition from primary to secondary school as they become small fish in a big pond.

Fantastic writing in Year 1, inspired by the book Stanley's Stick by John Hegley. They even published them and designed the front cover of their own book.

Well done Year 1!

Creativity is 'bubbling' out of Year 2 and 3! Children have been drawing bubbles, using coloured chalk and shading techniques; studying how white light contains all the colours of light combined, through reflection!
