Welcome to Morpurgo Class
Mrs Payne and Miss Jennings
Mrs Payne thoroughly enjoyed reading these books over the Easter break. Why not give them a try!
Time Travelling with a hamster - Ross Welford
Cogheart - Peter Bunzl
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan
Escape from Shangri-La - Michael Morpurgo
Thank-you to Rhiannon for recommending, 'Cogheart' .
Also, thanks to Jack for recommending, 'Time Travelling with a Hamster'.
Mrs Payne couldn't put them down and stayed up far too late reading.
This term our quest is 'Heroes and Villians'.

Today we had the SPACE theatre company in to talk to Year 5 and 6 about being safe online. The class watched a play which dealt with staying safe online, keeping personal information safe, passwords and how to report any problems they may be faced with. The children really enjoyed it and got a lot from it.
Celebration of the River Tone
We have been learning about the River Tone and the wildlife that lives along the River Tone. We have recently welcomed into class the Somerset Wildlife Trust, an environmental charity set up to look after wildlife and wild places. We learnt about some of the exciting nature based events that are happening over half term and created some willow lanterns.
Our class have been invited to take part in the River of Light Event on Saturday 18th February. The children need to gather at
5.00 pm at the Brewhouse Theatre, to collect their beautiful fish lanterns. Mrs Payne will be there, but children should be accompanied by a parent who will take responsibility for them. At 5.30pm the children will walk with the procession to Goodlands Gardens where they will meet a second stream of children processing from the Castle Green. The two procession 'streams' will merge and swirl together creating a river of light. The procession will finish with music on the green and a fire and light performance.
It should be a wonderful experience, and we hope that as many members of Morpurgo Class as possible will be able to take part.
Morpurgo Class gave a rib tickling performance of ' The Porcupine'. You will find the poem in Roald Dahl's book 'Dirty Beasts'.
It was great to see so many children dressed up as a book character. A fun day was had by all.
