Welcome to Chimps!


Chimps' class is taught by Mr Payne and supported by Mrs Stableford. We like to work hard but also enjoy ourselves ; work made fun - gets done!


We are so excited with our current topic 'How did the Tudors make their world bigger?'

Whilst our amazing new outdoor area was being built over the summer, the ruins of an old building were found. Using our new archaeological equipment, we undertook a dig within the ruins and turned up a variety of Tudor artefacts. We have been busy examining them to decide what they might have been used for.




At the end of our topic we will be sharing our knowledge and expertise in a Tudor cafe where we will be selling 'pottage', bread and hot chocolate that we have designed and made ourselves. In the cafe, we will also be acting in character to tell visitors about life in Tudor times.


We are going to be experiencing a visit from the Young Shakespeare Company who will be performing Macbeth for us.

As a result we will be basing much of our writing around the famous 'Scottish play'. We will be writing biographies of its creator William Shakespeare, which we will hopefully film as mini documentaries and upload them to Twitter (tagging in The Royal Shakespeare Company, The Globe theatre, Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Judi Dench and Michael Fassbender - all of whom have performed in the play). 


These are exciting times for Chimps' class!
