OVER the past few weeks, Pemberley Academy students been looking at the world and the environment.

On Friday they invited parents in to see their work. It was quite an impressive site to see parents queuing around the block waiting to come in and see work from Year 1 to Year 6

‘One School. One Book’. is also a whole-school project at Pemberley to celebrate their love of reading.

The book they worked on was called ‘The Odd Fish’ written by Naomi Jones and illustrated by James Jones.

The book has a strong message of sustainability and the prevention of plastic in our oceans. The children were inspired by this book (and a video message from the authors) which lead to some powerful work all around the themes of recycling and sustainability.

This has linked directly to one of the Reach2 Academy priorities ‘Sustainability in schools’.

They also had the pleasure of working with Phil Davis from Write Inspired who worked with all children to create music, spoken word poems, sculpture and much more. He will be creating a film about the project and his week at Pemberley. 


Assistant Head Mr Kalafi said: “‘At Pemberley we pride ourselves in our children’s creativity and love of reading.

“This project has been a fantastic concoction of both. Inspired by the amazing book ‘The Odd Fish’, we’ve seen the children create some incredibly powerful work including poems, sculpture, paintings and much more.

“We’d like to thank parents/carers for joining us on Friday to celebrate their children’s work’
