The children have started a new character curriculum programme that aims to develop children's skills, knowledge and understanding whilst building?their capacity to choose intelligently between decisions that contribute to their character development and specific learning.

The children have learned about famous adventurer Levison Wood, and are carrying out missions based in the Himalayas. The children have thoroughly enjoyed the missions so far and have shown great resilience, communication and teamwork skills to successfully complete them so far.

        We have had some fantastic emails with your work on over the last couple of weeks, so we thought it would be great to show it off! Laila has written an amazing setting description from 'The Game' task we set this week. We love how full of description it is - you feel as if you are there! She has also been following the instructions to draw an eye and I think you'll agree, they are amazing!

        Oliver has been enjoying the Aztec challenges, making a model of a side temple (with a guided tour), a flag and some fantastic quiz questions. We are so impressed with his creativity! Why don't you see if you can write a quiz for each other?

        Leah has completed so much of the work we have set, which is amazing. She is really pushing herself and the effort is fantastic to see. She has also created an Aztec temple and worked through the maths and English tasks.

        Finally, Kelsey has written a brilliant setting description, really concentrating on her handwriting. We loved reading it and can see how hard she is trying.

        We are really proud of all of your efforts. We would love to see more of your work, or other challenges you have been completing while at home. Please send them to

        Stay safe and we are looking forward to seeing you when it is safe to come back to school.

          Mdawi Primary has also been chosen by the British Council to host a visit from the Minister of Education in Tanzania to learn more about their linking work with us. This is wonderful recognition of the partnership.

            Golden Time Gems

            Published on Thursday 13 February 2020 by Mr Askew.

            A massive well done to our Year 5 children who achieved the mystery dojo total of 52 for this half-term! The children have done this by showing excellent learning behaviours and demonstrating that they have the Gem Power to be successful.

            The children had the choice of gaming, art or a karaoke party. As you can see from the pictures, it looks like the children really enjoyed their treat for having an excellent half-term, with many saying that it will make them work harder to get a treat again next half-term
