Junior Journalists

There is always so much going on at Grendon... and who better to tell you about it than the children themselves! You will know from our Vision, Ethos and Aims page that one of our aims is to 'build independent and resilient learners who are able to communicate confidently'. This page is just one of the ways that we achieve that aim.

Elise and Sam have been elected as our Junior Journalists for this year and will update this page regularly. Please keep checking back to find out about all the things that WE CAN do!

Junior Journalist’s Wear It Wild LIVE Report!

The Junior Journalists have been out around school, seeing what has been happening as part of our Wear It Wild day. You can see some pictures from the day HERE and we have the following reports from around school;

In Year 3 they started the day off with an animal vote on which animal they want to adopt. Next, they joined a fascinating live lesson about walruses. After break, they participated in a book review competition about endangered animals. They finished off the day with some beautiful animal art.

Over in Year 4, they made some awesome croc crafts, I hope they don’t bite! Then, they used their creativity to come up with their own weird and wonderful animals. Before the live lesson, they did their own research about walruses. Way to be prepared Year 4!

In Year 5 they did a book review about the amazing book, The Tantrum That Saved The World. To do their adoption vote, they held a year group meeting. We hope it wasn’t too noisy! As well as the other KS2 classes, they also joined the live WWF lesson about walruses.

Finally, in Year 6, they started the day by reading about fascinating animals and doing book reviews about them. These were then judged by a teacher and the winner received a brilliant book and some chocolate. Then children participated in the same live lesson from WWF. To do our animal vote we made presentations about the given animals and why we should adopt them.

A great day all round!!
