ARP 2 had a wonderful time this week performing their song ‘Once Upon a Time’.

We would like to say thank you for all the donations of food for people less fortunate than ourselves.

Alfie A said ‘It was absolutely wonderful. I loved it when we sang it all together!’

Elliot enjoyed the Harvest song. He said ‘It made me feel great!’

We hope you enjoy watching our video!


Through our PSHE lessons, we have been learning about the importance of kindness. Many people think that ‘sticks and stones may break our bones but words can never hurt us’. We discussed this phrase and we didn’t agree; words can be very hurtful. We set up an experiment to prove what we thought.

Dr Masaru Emoto’s rice experiment

Over the next few weeks, we are going to ‘speak’ to the rice according to the instructions. We discussed kind and unkind words and practised saying kind things to each other. We predicted that each jar of rice will turn a different colour as it goes off. We don’t think there will be any difference between each jar.

Check back in a few weeks to see what happens!
