Autumn Art in Elder
This autumn, we are developing our water colour skills. 
For inspiration, we have used  the work of German painter Albrecht Dürer and have taken our own photographs of our school grounds to work from. 
For concentration, we have listened to work of Eric Satie, who was a French composer and pianist. 

A message to the England Football Team
Our version of Gareth Southgate's speech to his team after the
Euro Finals July 2021
Everyone gather round and listen I have something very important to tell you.
Tonight we were tested to our limits but we will get back out there and not let them bring us down. Tonight has been an experience for our team, even though there is room for improvement, we played well. We persevered and tried our best.  There is a lot of hard work ahead but think of where you have come from.  No other England team has made it to the finals of the Euros or any other final since the World Cup in 1966.
You can be anything if you put your mind to it.  One day you will be known all over the world.

PGL residential Marchants Hill 2019
Booth Museum
In September we had an inspiring workshop and look round the Booth Museum in Hove to support our topic of Darwin's Delights.  Through handling the artefacts in Edward Booth's collection, we discussed evolution, adaption and habitats.   We considered how different animals needed to protect themselves from predators and even camouflage themselves. 
The children of Elder Class recorded themselves reading Acorn Class' favourite picture books!
Our youngest pupils loved watching them during their reading sessions. 
Year 5 and 6 were a big hit!
