News & Events

Class 1 this week we have been talking about special people in our lives. We shared photos of our families and pets and talked about why it’s good to be different. We have been continuing to learn our new sounds and graphemes and are doing a brilliant job! We have worked together to make some amazing zoos, race tracks and have enjoyed big drawing together. We have talked about the changes in the weather and some of us have been busy collecting leaves and acorns.

Class 2’s highlights include learning to plait in groups of three with skipping ropes during Art and Design.  In Gymnastics the children have been practising rolling, staddles and rocking to stand without using hands.  In Science they worked within their house groups to identify herbivores, carnivores and omnivores as well as learning about the events which led to 'The Great Fire Of London' during History.  Pupils have written their own interesting adventures of 'Little Red' with many including the mischievous 'Goldilocks'.  Place value in maths has challenged the Year 1’s; understanding and application of the words fewer, more, same, less when comparing numbers and the Year 2’s are becoming number line experts, analysing interval amounts as well as the start and end points to position numbers.   The class have worked exceptionally hard this week and I'm proud of their efforts both in class and at home too as well as their own individual personal achievements! Well done Class 2!

Class 3  have been busy this week editing and improving our setting descriptions.  In Science we have been looking at different types of rocks and we have been grouping and classifying them.  In History, we have been looking at artefacts from Ancient Egypt; making predictions and asking questions about what they could be and what they were used for. We are still enjoying our PE sessions and our gymnastics skills are improving each week.  

Class 4  from the children:

I have really enjoyed carrying out a science investigation to measure the force of gravity pulling on objects using Newton meters. 

I have enjoyed partner work in gymnastics, making up our own synchronized routine, creating mirror images and cannonballs.

In computing, we have enjoyed creating codes using the scratch programme.

We have enjoyed taking part in the football tournament, it was really fun playing against other schools.

We have enjoyed baking this week using rationed ingredients to experience shortages during world war one, we donated our cakes to the church.

Class 1 have squeezed a lot into our shorter week! We have been learning our first phonemes and practising writing our first graphemes. We have also been finding out about 1, 2 and 3, and creating our own patterns. During our SCARF session we talked about the question “What makes me special?”. We were all kind and respectful whilst listening to our friends. Another fantastic week!

Class 2  Comments from pupils:

I love learning, we like Maths, English, Worship, wet playtimes and lunch. P.S.H.E because I liked the emoji feelings faces, being with Mrs Robinson and home time.  We enjoyed voting for our school council. 

Class 3 Comments from pupils:

We have learnt about the river Nile. We know some facts about the Nile, uses of the Nile and why it was so important to the people who lived near it. 

In maths we've been learning about place value and how to partition numbers to 1000 and 10000.

We enjoyed science, we have learnt how different rocks are formed.

In worship we enjoyed some singing. 

Some of us went to after school clubs and had a good time.

Class 4 have been thinking about the character ‘Grandma Wolf’ using powerful vocabulary to describe her appearance, actions and personality. In History, we have been researching what life was like in the trenches during World War One. Everyone was really excited about Forest Schools. During our visits, the children will be taking part in Orienteering, learning how to use a compass, map reading skills and how to navigate around a course. The ethos group responsibly led worship on Thursday, thinking about celebrating differences. 

Class 1  We have been so impressed with how Class 1 have settled in this week. We have welcomed back old friends from Nursery, as well as some new friends. It has been lovely to see their smiling faces as they explore their classroom and start to learn our routines. We are very excited for what we can achieve together over the next year!

Class 2 have made a super start to the academic year with lots of smiles, enthusiasm and readiness to learn! Their wide range of creative brilliant beginnings to our new topic 'The Colour Red' look fabulous in our classroom as do their self-portraits painted on their visit day.  Many of the pupils have completed the Summer Reading Challenge and this will be congratulated in celebration worship, well done.  They have chosen classroom monitor jobs and created a class two code which has been agreed and signed by each member of the class.  An amazing start to the new academic year, well done Class 2!

Class 3 have had a fantastic beginning to the school year.  They have come into class ready to learn.  This week, we have been getting used to our new routines. We have also welcomed Mrs Ross who will be teaching the children on Thursdays and Fridays and Miss Foster who is our new Teaching Assistant.  The children should be proud of how caring and helpful they have been.  We have talked about our Brilliant Beginnings, and we will continue to get through these as they arrive into class.  We have looked at Seesaw and have new codes for our new class seesaw group, we will continue to use this for homework and sharing the wonderful things we do outside of school.  Welcome back Class 3 let's make this year an amazing one!

Class 4 It has been lovely to welcome our new year 5/6 children into Class 4 this week. We have had a fantastic start to our new term, everyone has arrived back to school with fantastic attitudes and maturity. I have been so impressed with the children's enthusiasm for our new topic 'World war 1' this has shown in the amazing Brilliant Beginnings work, shared in class this week. What a great start Class 4, I am certain you will keep up your focus and enthusiasm for learning. Year 6 buddies have been practising our school values by showing friendship and support to the Reception children. Well done Class 4! 

Class 1 What a busy week in Class 1! This week we welcomed lots of new starters into our class. We were very proud of the children for helping them to settle in. They were very kind, patient and friendly. 

The children had a fantastic Sports Day on Monday and a wonderful trip to Silloth on Wednesday. They visited Silloth RNLI to find out about the important job they do to keep people safe. The splash park and the train were great fun and the ice-creams went down a treat!

Class 2 The lions liked sports day, sharing their news, answering questions about a story in PSHE and lunchtime.   The giraffes all enjoyed sports day the most. The meerkats enjoyed watching the Lion King, loved having a special golden time, learning about body parts and doing sports day. The cheetahs liked watching the play, writing acrostic poems for year 6 also P.S.H.E. and the wolves enjoyed the play too.

Class 3 are having a great time at Robin Wood. We look forward to hearing more from them when they get back.

Class 4

Children's comments:

We all enjoyed performing 'The Lion King' in front of the whole school and our families, our hard work paid off. 

I enjoyed cheering on my team during Sports Day, it was nice and hot weather; we got ice lollies at the end.

I enjoyed learning about 'the classroom' in French because we played a fun game to learn new words.

I enjoyed computing because we got time to practise programming and create our own apps.

I enjoyed the year 6 leavers transition session with Rachel from NISCU, we talked about moving on to our new secondary schools.

Class 1 have been enjoying watching their sunflowers and tadpoles grow!  Nursery have had a super Sports Day and Reception cheered them on while parents came and spectated. We enjoyed our ‘virtual’ visit from SCARF too.

Class 2 enthusiastically joined in with their SCARF 'Feelings' Zoom, especially enjoying creating magic by throwing their feelings into a feelings bucket.  In our house groups we worked collaboratively to create a tie dye pattern by using elastic bands and squeezy dye bottles, we are really impressed with the results.  In Science we have learned about healthy eating and how to build a balanced meal.  The class will miss Mrs Wealands who finishes her placement today and love the flock display she has created with our felt sheep. 

Class 3 have worked super hard this week to get our final piece of writing finished.  We have been writing diary entries about a refugee. This has been tough, but it has made us think about others in worse situations than ourselves.  We have also had a final push on finishing our geography unit and created some wonderful double page spreads comparing London to another European city.  We continue to enjoy our swimming lesson. We have also had fun in Science and creating classification keys and inventing a new bird species.  Our highlights are coming up next week when we have sport's day and Robinwood.  

Class 4 have enjoyed practising for the rounders tournament at WHS, they competed brilliantly. Year 6 have been taking part in 'Transition Days' at their secondary schools which they have really enjoyed and this has helped them to feel more confident with moving on to their next chapter. We had a visit from David Gardiner, who worked for 'Water Aid,' we found out how they were helping people in Africa to access clean water and sanitation. In PSHE, we took part in a virtual lesson about mental health and wellbeing. The children shared lots of good ideas to keep their mind-set positive. Year 6 received their SATS results this week, they should all be very proud of themselves!
