Super efforts!

Thank you to Matthew for your super science ideas, Gabby & Max for great team work.  Paige, Millie and Adam for your Hundertwasser artwork.  You were proud to show your work in Gold Book today. Well done!

Look at the links below to recap on the phonemes that we have covered this week during our Letters and Sounds sessions - thank you.




Can you explain how the bottle on this post was important this week? If you can, write it down on a piece of paper and bring it with you to our next Letters and Sounds session.  Any correct answer earns a merit.  Good luck!

Something to think about Team 2.......

Hello Team 2 - during Science today, Miss Richards planned some super hands on investigations for you all.

Can you explain what Angel Delight, salt, sandpaper and foil were doing in our classroom today? How were they being used?  What did you find out?

Comment below and receive a merit.

Look out because next week they'll be making another appearance.....

You all made me, Mrs Shaw and Miss Hickling very proud. All your hard work paid off and working as a team gave you the results you deserve.   Keep up the good work and hopefully we'll have another good result at Alfreton Leisure on the 4th December.
