News & Events

Class 1 have had a fantastic week. We have made the most of the lovely weather by taking our learning outside as much as possible.

The children enjoyed a trip to Talkin Tarn where we continued our learning about seasonal changes and habitats. We were all excited to spot a woodpecker near its nest, as well as a big duck egg. We were lucky to have the chance to help with the beech weaving for the new stargazing pavilion.

Today we released our butterflies! We were very excited to see them fly away – some needed more encouragement than others, but they are all enjoying the sunshine now. We have enjoyed learning about their life cycle and have been doing some writing about them.

We loved our last football session with Nick – it has been great to see Class 1 and Class 2 working so well together.


Class 2 Another busy week in Class 2 with children completing their newspaper reports on Dizzy's actions last week.  Both Year 1 and 2 are now working in fractions in maths.  In art they've worked collaboratively to try and build a sculpture with boxes in art with no glue or sellotape allowed for joining, balancing has been essential during this sculpture block with the clay pebbles proving challenging too!  They've enjoyed lots of physical activity including tennis, football and a multi-skills morning at William Howard School.  They concluded their learning about different astronauts over the year in history and achieved well in their end of unit quiz.  As usual they have loved their sunny playtimes and lunchtimes, a love of Pokemon cards is proving popular with the children.  A big well done to all the pupils this half-term, they have shown great perseverance and positivity with all of their learning, we're already looking forward to next half-term with you!


Class 3 have been super workers this week!  We have really enjoyed computing and creating animations using PowerPoint.  The children are becoming really confident with all of the controls and have created excellent animations.  We have also been busy learning how to tell the time and working out time problems.  Lots of confidence here too!  Year 4s have been working hard to practice and learn the times tables and we are becoming speedier as well as remembering more every day.  Keep practicing these on or on TTRS over the half term. We have been learning about life in Britain before the Romans and what happened when the Romans invaded.  It was our last cricket session and we had a brilliant game of cricket.  What a lot of fun we have had!  


Class 4 have had a fantastic few days at Barcaple. Everyone challenged themselves throughout the activities, which was great to witness. The children encouraged and supported each other, what amazing team spirit! 

They definitely had fun, big favourites were paddle boarding and mountain biking. 

Class 1 “I loved making pitta pockets at the forest”.

“I’ve had fun playing in the mud kitchen with my friends”.

“Football with Nick was lots of fun”.

“We loved the cricket with Fraser, I can bat the ball really hard”.

“I liked painting pictures with the watercolours, it’s tricky but I kept trying”.

“I like watching the chrysalides. I don’t know when they’re going to be butterflies”.


Class 2 I like lunchtime because I love Mrs Pots, her lunches are the best!

I enjoyed English, we had to look around the school for clues because Dizzy stole Mrs Robinsons’ birthday cake.

I enjoyed tennis because I got to hit the ball and flip the tennis racket.

I enjoy golden time because I get to play with Lego. 

I enjoyed being on superhero.  


Class 3 I liked learning about decimals in maths.

I put a lot of thought into my writing and am very proud of it.

In PE I liked cricket because we got to do a lot, including bowling.

It was fun and I like the coach.

I liked doing our newspaper report and writing about Robinwood.

Science was good.

We learned about sound and that sound can travel through solids.  


Class 4 We have enjoyed researching Greek culture in Geography, we used lots of different sources of evidence. 

Everyone in Year 6 enjoyed the pizza party to celebrate all our hard work and the end of SATS. We got to eat ice-cream and danced to our favourite songs. 

We have enjoyed finishing off our mythical stories, creating our own quests to defeat the evil creature. 

We have enjoyed athletics with Mr Rigg, the activities are really fun.  

I have enjoyed reading with my buddy. 

Class 1 have had another very busy week.

In maths we have been practising our number bonds to 10 as well as comparing numbers and amounts – which number is greater or smaller, who has more than or fewer than. We enjoyed playing number track hopscotch.

We are using our phonics to read longer words and are making our teachers very proud with how hard we’re trying.

We were very excited to see that we have one chrysalis – the other caterpillars are getting very big so we are keeping a close eye on them!

We have been sharing coronation party stories and have produced some fabulous writing about the new King.

In PSED we have been learning about healthy food and why it is important. We made smoothies and had them for our afternoon snack.

We have enjoyed our sessions with our PE coaches, Fraser and Nick, and are looking forward to our first ever cricket game next week.


Class 2 have shared their enthusiasm about the Coronation in their own news report as part of our Newspaper writing in English.  In maths many of the year ones are keen to share their counting in 2s, 5s and 10s or their times table fact recall, as part of their multiplication and division block of work.  Year 2 are getting to grips with learning to tell the time.  We continue to learn about significant astronauts in History.  Great perseverance from the Year 2s has been shown as they prepare for their SATS next week. We're also proud of the year ones ongoing improvements in their Phonics results too.  Keep up the good work!


In Class 3 this week, we have been continuing writing our newspaper reports.  We have had some fun creating headlines for our activities at Robinwood and we have started writing the main article.  The children have been excellent at interviewing each other about the activities.  In maths Year 4 have been continuing Decimals and Year 3 started Money, it would be really useful to get to know values of money at home to increase confidence with coin recognition.  We have been learning the names of fruits in French; how many fruits can you name?  We have started learning about 'sound' in science and we took part in a sound survey during the spectacular rain shower on Thursday afternoon (from the comfort of the classroom)!  Our Romans topic is underway, learning about life in Ancient Rome and what the Romans liked to do for entertainment.  The class have been enjoying our cricket sessions with Fraser and our weekly trip to the swimming pool.


Class 4 from the children

We have enjoyed computing, learning about the history of computers and creating a timeline. What even is a cassette tape and Walkman?

We have enjoyed writing a setting description in English, we chose: the underworld, mountains, caves and the ocean to describe. We will add our descriptions to our mythical stories.

We are improving our skills in rounders which is great! 

In Geography, we enjoyed practising map skills and learning about the physical features of Greece.

I have enjoyed SATs because we can show what we have learnt.

I have enjoyed the maths SATs assessment.

I thought SATs was good because I thought it would be too hard, but it was ok.

Class 1 “I loved the artist coming in and cricket”.

“Doing the birds with Helen”.

“I liked going outside”.

Class 2 I liked building the cars in DT and Golden Time.  Art was great, I loved making a picture of King Charles the third, my tea-towel looks good.  I learned lots of new facts in Miss Chambers' History lesson.  Acting out the Coronation was fun.  We like looking at the new spiders which live in the tyres on the field.  Lunchtime is the best!  Phonics helps us to read and spell.  I like counting in 2's, 5's and 10's in maths.  I wrote lots when I wrote my story and I liked reading my story out loud to other people.  I think the picnic will be fun!

Year 4 enjoyed doing decimals and Year 3 enjoyed fractions in Maths.

Literacy was fun because we are acting like newspaper reporters.

We have enjoyed planning and carrying out our own Science investigations, to test whether the length of wires affects the brightness of a bulb.

I enjoyed using Digimaps in Geography, finding out how to use the tools to find grid references, locate places using images, markers and text boxes. We looked at different maps including Crosby-on-Eden and United Kingdom.

I am looking forward to the Royal Picnic and other celebrations today.

Class 1 We have had a very busy week in Class 1!

We were very excited on Monday morning – there was a special delivery for us. We all guessed what might be inside and were pleased to discover it was caterpillars. We are now watching them as they grow and are looking forward to what happens next.

At Forest Schools we enjoyed: painting pictures in the style of Monet; using saws to cut slices of wood which we then decorated; making homes for worms and all our usual activities.

We have finished reading The Runaway Train and have been making up our own stories about the Little Red Train.

We have really enjoyed our PE sessions with Fraser and Nick and are learning lots of new skills.


Class 2 have impressed the teachers with their progamming in Scratch, using inputs and code blocks.   They learned about Mae Jaemison in History, enjoyed comparing food they like or dislike with others, during DT they planned their new vehicle and learned how they will use axels and wheels to make it move.   In Science they were learning about life-cycles.  They have loved their three P.E. lessons this week, tennis with Miss Chambers, Cricket with Fraser and Football with Nick! New units have been started in Maths and in English we have been planning our journey story using ideas from Mr Gumpy's Outing, Motor Car and The Gingerbread Man.  As usual, they have worked hard, with positivity and perseverance! Well done Class Two!


Class 3 are having a lovely time at Robinwood and have taken part in so many fun activities and have enjoyed lots of delicious food.  The children are looking forward to coming home today to tell you all about it!


Class 4 have had a really productive week. Everyone had fun carrying out a variety of electricity investigations in Science, using different voltages, switches, buzzers and motors. It was very Noisy!  The children's focus in maths has been amazing, they have learnt lots about angles. In English, we have been completing our character descriptions, the children have really enjoyed sketching their creatures using their descriptions. We have some horrid, gruesome, evil characters! Year 6 pupils have shown fantastic attitudes to their learning in Booster sessions. Well done, you are all amazing! Have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend class 4.
