During this short half term, we began reading ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe”. We used this text to think about stories set in imaginary worlds. Throughout the unit we identified different features of imaginary worlds and how we can describe them using powerful vocabulary and imagery.


During PSHCE, we have been thinking about making good choices and Mr Sharp gave us different situations and asked us if it was: ALWAYS, SOMETIMES or NEVER ACCEPTABLE. The situations included: stealing, eating chocolate and not doing your homework. Here is what some of us thought:

Harris – “It is sometimes acceptable to steal because if you are really hungry and need something to eat, then you  might have to steal.”

Freddy – “It is never acceptable to steal because even if you’re really hungry, everyone else has to pay for the food.”


Madison – “It is sometimes acceptable to eat chocolate but if you eat too much it can rot your teeth.”


Nevaeh – “It is sometimes acceptable to not do your homework because if you are poorly then you can’t do it.”
