This week in Class 3, we have had so much fun reading the book 'You Choose.' 

The children have been using their imaginations to think about what kind of house they would like to live in, what they would put inside and what kind of things they would like to eat.

We made super setting boxes describing all of our amazing ideas using lots of super adjectives that really impressed our teachers!

Tudor portraits in Year 5

Date: 17th Sep 2021 @ 7:00pm

Y5 have started their topic on Tudors and have learnt about the Battle of Bosworth and how Henry VII became King.

This week, the children have been busy developing their artistic skills in art while drawing their own portraits of Tudor Monarchs. To begin with, they sketched an outline of the king or queen and then added more fine details. Finally, to add more depth, they shaded their drawings using colour pencils. The finished pieces are fantastic and the children had paid a great deal of attention to detail. Y5 are very proud their work and so are we.

We have had a fantastic week in Reception finding out all about what makes us INCREDIBLE! Our book this week was Incredible You and to start the week we shared our ideas about what animal we would like to be - we had lots of roaring lions and tigers! Later in the week we thought about why we are incredible then went on to say why other people in the class were incredible and to pay them compliments. The children were very kind and supportive of each others feelings and had lots of nice things to say.

Next week we will be reading Little Red Riding Hood and baking some cakes for Grandma.

In Maths we have been doing lots of counting, singing number songs and have become familiar with the classroom visual time table which shows what order things happen in the classroom.

Class 14's learning of the week...

Date: 17th Sep 2021 @ 11:50am

This week we have had an incredibly busy week of learning. The children started off their literacy work reading Rose Blanche - This was a fantastic opportunity for children to learn more about WW2. The children wrote letters to the Prime Minister of Great Britain from the perspective of a child imprisoned in Auschwitz at that time - The quality and empathy displayed has been overwhelming. 

In maths this week, we have further consolidated our long multiplication and long division learning and are now beginning to show a lot of confidence in that area.

We have had a great week, have a lovely weekend,

A great start to Y5!

Date: 10th Sep 2021 @ 8:10pm

Y5 have had a wonderful start to the year. They have settled in well and displayed maturity and enthusiasm for learning.

In literacy, Class 11 have been reading ‘The Secret Lake’ by Karen Inglis and Class 12 have been reading ‘The Wreck of the Zanzibar.’ by Michael Morpurgo. Both classes have thoroughly enjoyed reading the books. They have planned, written and edited great diary entries. They were a pleasure to read.

In Maths, Year 5 have started the term with place value. They have shown a good grasp of the value of different numbers and were able to read and write numbers up to a million. It was also great to see that many of our children have used their time well in the summer holidays and have been learning their tables.

Well done and keep it up Year 5!

Our first week back...

Date: 10th Sep 2021 @ 7:42pm

This week Class 3 had their first full week in Year 1. We have been so impressed with how quickly the children have settled into their new classroom and how hard they have worked with their learning.

This week in Literacy we have been reading the story ' The lion who wanted to love.'  We have had so much fun using drama to act out the story, as well as working hard to write some super sentences to describe the main character in the story Leo.

In maths we have been working on our place value knowledge, sorting and ordering numbers and objects into different groups.

We have also started our new science topic this week - 'Our bodies.' We worked carefully as a class to correctly label the different body parts, and really impressed our teachers with all that we knew.

We are so excited to continue our learning next week and to see the amazing learning that the children produce. Well done Class 3 for a super first week in school. We are so proud of you! 

Our first week in Class 6!

Date: 10th Sep 2021 @ 3:47pm

We have had the most amazing start to our time in Class 6! We have been reading a book called Charlie Stinky Socks and the Really Big Adventure and have enjoyed learning about a brave knight called Sir Charlie who isn't afraid of the monstrous trees or terrible beasties in the deep dark woods. We enjoyed learning about the author; Kristina Stephenson, and wrote our own blurbs. In Maths we have shown our teachers how amazing we are with our number knowledge and even helped some pirates find a stolen treasure map! 

We used our amazing map skills to help us find and locate India on a map of the world and reminded ourselves of our Year 1 learning about continents. 

We cannot wait to show you all our amazing learning throughout the year!

What a lovely start to the term, the children are incredibly enthusiastic and are ready for an extremely important year of learning.
