Ava’s Poem

By Corona - Covid19 Virus, English, Year 4


Coronavirus has now taken over, 

We all have to stay apart,

But if we listen to the government

There will be no broken hearts. 

We miss you 

We love you

But it is hard to tell

We will be together soon

So there is no farewell.

We can sing

We can dance 

We can learn to tie our lace

We can play ball, do makeup and funny faces.

After 12 weeks we are all together,

but for how long? 

Hopefully forever!

BBC 500 Words Competition

By English, Year 4

In February, Year 4 all entered the BBC 500 words story writing competition. Every child in the class worked extremely hard on their entries and I am incredibly proud of all their efforts.  One student in particular however deserves an extra round of applause for their achievement.

Yesterday, I had an email from the BBC 500 words to say that Kate had made it through to the next stage of the competition. Out of over 135,000 entries, only 5000 stories have been shortlisted and Kate’s is one of these. Well done Kate- lets hope you make it through to the final 50!
