What a fantastic day we had when we dropped our pens so we could work on our oral language skills. From Nursery all the way through to year six, everyone enjoyed a variety of activities that developed our vocabulary.

Reception enjoyed role play, phonics using magnetic letters and letter formation in oats.

Year 1-2 developed non-fiction reports about penguins and elephants.

Year 3-4 explored place value using money.

Year 5-6 were challenged with a variety of problems in maths and created live newspaper reports on the IPads.

The whole school, even the teachers took part in a joke competition. This gave us an opportunity to perform in front of an audience.

What a fantastic day building our oral language skills!
