Visiting author Robin Price.

Today we had a special assembly to get some writing tips from visiting author Robin Price. He has written books like Spartapus.

At the heart of every story is a problem that needs to be solved. In Spartapus there is Catligula who is the evil villain who puts Spartapus into a ludus.

What did you think about Robin’s visit? Add a comment about what you enjoyed and maybe what book you would like to read first.

Hail Spartapuss!


A new year begins!

The new school year has started incredibly well. The children have settled into junior school life quickly and adapted to the challenges of work and the new way of learning. Our Neolithic Inquiry is under way and the children have received a commission from a Scottish Billionaire to put together a team to go on an exciting adventure to collect Neolithic artifacts. You will be able to follow the children’s learning journey on the blog. Feel free to ask the children questions and comment positively on their work.

To whom it may concern,

My name is Lady Morag McGregor. I own an estate on the Orkney Islands in Scotland, which I would like to turn into a special attraction for unusual animals and historical artefacts.

I have a rather unique science department at my estate where we have been developing a top secret project. The project will allow you to collect Neolithic animals and objects from nearly 10,000 years ago.

I need a team of explorers and scientists that could be daring enough to do the impossible! They would need to be ready for any eventuality and be excellent problem solvers. Is that you?

Please prepare a list of the skills your team would bring and any equipment you would require to go on an extended mission into dangerous territory.

More information will follow shortly.

Yours sincerely,


Lady Morag McGregor.
