After watching year 6's remembrance service, we were fortunate enough to see a tank up close and in person.

The children were able to present some thoughtful and interesting questions to the owner.

Phase 2 words to practise please


Dear Parents

Following on from our termly letter, please find attached a powerpoint with the phase 2 high frequency words and the tricky words (words which cannot be segmented and need to be recognised by sight) for your child to use at home to help them to recognise and read these words. Please use it as part of, or additional to,  your three times a week reading practise.

Children in Need 2020 with Class R

The children in Class R started to understand what Children in Need was all about today.  We learnt about Pudsey Bear and he helped us to count backwards and think of lots of things which start with 'p'.  In our explore and learn time, the children created a Pudsey gallery and loved exploring all of the learning zones which were based on Pudsey.

We talked about this year being the 40th year of the BBC's Children in Need and how the event raises lots and lots of money to help children all over the United Kingdom.  Over the last two days we have talked about Joe Wicks and his 24 hour exercise challenge to raise money for Children in Need - we even joined in with him in our P.E. lesson and today!

Pumpkin Mouse, Puzzle and Pudsey!

Just to let you know children that I've left a very happy Pumpkin Mouse with his friends, Puzzle and Pudsey!  All 3 of them enjoyed watching the fish get cleaned out and are now very happy watching Goldilocks and Rainbow fish and making sure they get fed over the weekend.


Class R's Star of the Week

A very BIG well done to Mya, who is Class R's Star of the Week.  We are so proud of Mya and her love of reading.  She holds her book beautifully, turns each page without prompting and she enjoys every page. Mya always practises her reading at home and loves to read different stories too.  Well done Mya - Keeeeeeeep reading!


Pudsey is proud of you too!


Class 3's Star of the Week!

Our star this week is...Amber!

Well done Amber, you have been a true superstar this week particularly in maths, using your arrays to work out multiplication and divisions. Your enthusiasm towards learning has shone this week, your smile has radiated our classroom and encourages everyone to work at their very best!

Keep it up :)



Another Week In Class 3...

WOW, what a week! I am super proud of Class 3 this week for all their brilliant work and superb effort that they have given towards every bit of their learning, keep it up Class 3! 

This week has been full of special events - Remembrance Day and Children In Need. So here is what the children have been up to this week...

Maths - we have now mastered addition and subtraction using our column method and have a great understanding of the process which helps us to solve any types of addition and subtraction questions. The latter end of this week has seen us start multiplication and division. We have been using arrays to solve both operations with our rows and captain columns. Let's keep this up for next week girls and boys!

English - a mixed week this week but some gorgeous work! Monday saw the children become a Stone Age Detective, seeking out all the best bits from our core text the Stone Age Sentinel. On Wednesday, as part of our Remembrance Day, the children learnt about the importance of wearing a poppy and created their very own poppy with a sentence about why they themselves wear a poppy which has created our Class Wreath. Children have collated information about a newspaper report and its features and today have celebrated Children In Need by redesigning Pudsey's eye patch to something that they feel represents Children In Need. 

This week, the children painted poppies for the school 'Tree of Remembrance and Hope' which they loved and did a fabulous job! Pictures are below, our class colour was green. We also had a visit from a tank on Remembrance Day...how fabulous!

Topic - Children learnt about chronology this week and then movement of the Stone Age right through to the Iron Age.

Science - I think the children enjoyed this the most this week as they created the rock cycle with starbursts! We looked at every element of the rock cycle and used the starbust to show how a rock transforms from magma to igneous to sedimentary to metamorphic. We also looked at weathering, erosion and deposition using lego landforms. Photos for this lesson are below! 

A truly wonderful week Class 3! Keep up the great work! :)



Class 6 Tank Experience





After our Remembrance service, class 6 were the first to glimpse the tank travel past school and then get a closer look and ask some very thoughtful and interesting questions.
