News & Events

Class 1 We have had a very productive week in Class One.

We have been creating our Mothers’ Day cards – we hope you love how unique they are, the children put lots of thought, effort, and love into them all.

In maths we have been learning our doubles – we have a doubles song to help us!

We are working hard with our sentence writing and have used this to write about different kinds of habitats.

We have begun practising our poem for Awesome Endings – we are trying hard to use our loud voices.

At Forest School we enjoyed making pitta pizzas and making homes for the woodland creatures Mrs Turney had found.

In PSED we have been talking about ways we can help those who help us, and also ways we can help our friends. Everyone came up with lots of lovely ideas. We made ‘Help Pledges’, so hopefully some of you may have some helpers over the weekend!

 

Class 2 have warmly welcomed Miss Chambers into Class 2 this week.   They were eager to learn about the author 'Beatrix Potter' in our new narrative unit and had lots of enthusiasm for Peter Rabbit.  We learned about the North and South Pole in Geography, finding out about the differences between the two polar regions.  In Science we went on a microhabitats hunt, finding woodlice, worms and a few other minibeasts in our search.  We continued printing during art whilst card making.  They were programming pros in our last programming computing lesson, all achieving programming certificates which are now in out computing class book.  I'm always so proud of the support the children give one another (and adults) during computing lessons, to help one another as technical difficulties arise.   Another great week, finished with our wonderful action songs this morning.  A big thank you to Mrs Dinwoodie in helping us learn these songs.

 

Class 3 This week in Class 3, we have been building our writing skills by writing explanations.  We used a book about the Digestive System to learn about explanation texts and we are starting to write on our own.  Our explanations will be all about volcanoes.  Science involved making simple circuits and testing how changing the number of bulbs can affect a circuit.   In Geography, it has been all about the volcanoes, learning the types of volcanoes and where in the world they are.  In Maths, we are practising measuring and learning how to calculate the perimeter.  We got crafty at the end of the week and all will be revealed on Sunday. We enjoyed taking part in non-uniform day for Comic relief and found out what charities and causes Comic Relief supports.  We also tried to make each other laugh!  

 

Class 4 performed amazingly at the Music and Drama festival. They sang with such enthusiasm and professionalism. We were so proud of everyone, such a talented bunch of children!

In Science this week, we have been learning about how light reflects, the children made their own periscopes and tested them out. In Geography, the children designed information leaflets to inform their audience about the effects of climate change around the world. In English, everyone has enjoyed writing a diary entry in the character of 'Isatou'. This half term, our key text is linked to Climate Change, we are recognising that everyone can make small changes and have a positive impact on the environment.
