Superman – Under the Red Sun

Shazeb from Kingfisher Class has been busy reading a marvellous book called: ‘Superman – Under the Red Sun” by Blake A. Hoena.

“I like the book because it shows how strong Superman really is. The book is about Superman fighting a super villian that is controlled by the red sun. I really enjoy action books. It meant that Superman has to go into space to fight. I cannot wait to see how he will be victorious!”

We gave this book:

Jason – Rock Hero!

We were so excited on Friday morning to discover that Jason from Kingfisher class had become a Rock Hero overnight! Not only has he beating Mr Rowland’s top time in Year 5, but he is now the FASTEST Rock Hero at St Matthew’s – beating all of the pupils and teachers in the school!

To celebrate this exciting achievement, we called an urgent Year 5 assembly to celebrate, complete with rock music, an award winning thank you speech from Jason to his fans and of course a Mexican wave or two.


Who will be our next Year 5 Rock Hero and can they beat Jason’s top time?

Science Week

We have been celebrating all things SCIENCE this week as part of British Science Week.  The children took part in a number of different experiments throughout the week…

We made our own aeroplane, gliders and helicopters  to test the effects of air resistance…

We also explored the effects of friction on a tissue paper newt…

The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson

Review by Diljot from Snapdragon Class

 Matthew is a 9 year old boy who likes sparkling, clean surfaces, hates germs, going outside and feeling like a disappointment to his mum and dad.

When a toddler staying next door goes missing, Matthew finds himself at the centre of the mystery…

I like this book because I have never read a book of this genre and it gave a detailed background about the main character and his family. He likes to look out of his window and watch his neighbours.

I would recommend it to other Year 4, 5 and 6 children – it is a fantastic read! 5 stars
