Our Class book

In 1933 in Berlin, Anna is only nine years old when her life changes from the ground up. To escape the Nazis, her father Arthur Kemper, a well-known Jewish journalist, has to flee to Zurich. His family, Anna, her twelve-year-old brother Max and her mother Dorothea, follow him shortly thereafter. Anna has to leave everything behind, including her beloved pink rabbit, and to face a new life full of challenges and privations and rationings abroad.

There used to be an empty chair at the back of my class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it. 


He's nine years old (just like me) but he's very strange. He never talks and never smiles and doesn't even like lemon sherbets, which are my favourite!


But then I learned the truth: Ahmet isn't strange at all. He's a refugee who has ran away from a war. A real one. With bombs and bullies that hurt people. The more I find out about him, the more I want to help. 


That's where my best friends Josie, Michael and Tom come in. Because together, we've come up with a plan...

Our trip to Castleton


On Thursday the 14th October, Year 3 and 4 went on an exciting trip to Castleton. This was a part of our Science topic – Rocks. As you can see, we had lots of fun in the Speedwell Cavern, learning that clear water isn’t always good for us, especially when it had been filtered through Lime Stone and Lead!
