The GandT group have been working hard on an apprentice project. The group was split into two groups and given the task to design a Christmas themed gift. The groups firstly named themselves. The Funky Fruit Cakes decided to make delicious Snowflake fudge, whilst Santa's Little Helpers made mouth watering Christmas Ginger Dream Biscuits. They were given the challenge to make an advert to persuade their customers to choose which gift they would prefer to buy. Please take a look below at their fantastic adverts.

Mrs Watts's Writing Group, Your Next Challenge!
Mrs Watts Writing Group, For the rest of this term you have a fantastic task! We all know that all children love doing homework! Your next task is to create homework challenges for the rest of the school. This could be poems, story writing, instructional writing or newspaper articles, whatever you wish. Firstly you have to write a piece of writing yourself, to inspire your peers to get thinking! Maybe you can create the beginning to a story or write a newspaper article to demonstrate how it could be written? You will be split into two groups: upper and lower school. So, Cavan, William and Frances will set homework for lower school. Emily, Nathan, Laura, Shireena, Eve, Olivia and Lily will set homework for upper school. Next Tuesday we will get together straight after registration where I would like you to have thought about this task and have come up with some great ideas! Good Luck! Mrs Watts
