Diary Entries!

Date: 28th Nov 2017 @ 12:19pm

As part of our World War 2 topic, we have been looking at the lives of evacuees. We have found out that a lot of evacuees used to write in journals or diaries so we have decided to write some diary extracts as if WE were evacuees. 

Today's lesson involved researching the different features of a diary exctract and talking about how emotive language would have been used in a diary.

Year 6 have enjoyed continuing their learning at home. Take a look at their handy work.


Date: 22nd Nov 2017 @ 9:05pm

The children in Year 3 had a fantastic time practising their estimation skills. These skills are so important for maths; to help them identify errors and make sensible guesses about what calculations will equal. The children worked in teams to estimate a variety of things; from letters on a page to pockets in the class. They showed an excellent understanding and used some fantastic strategies!

Anti-bullying Week in Y1

Date: 22nd Nov 2017 @ 4:38pm

During Anti-bullying Week, Y1 explored the subject through the story of Humpty Dumpty. In these photos you can see the children acting out the story. The King's Men were bullying Humpty because they pushed him off the wall and laughed at him SEVERAL TIMES ON PURPOSE. Year 1 decided that the King should be told what his men were doing, and that they should be made to apologise and make friends with Humpty. The children then related this to what they should do if this was happening to them or one of their friends.

Victorian laundry in Y1

Date: 22nd Nov 2017 @ 4:19pm

Year 1 have been learning about what life was like more than one hundred years ago, and how Cinderella would have done the housework for her mean stepmother! We did some washing using a tub, washboard and poss stick, just like poor CInderella. It was very hard work!

The Mysterious Material Hunt

Date: 22nd Nov 2017 @ 4:17pm

Through our new topic- What is our school made of? We have started looking more at the objects around us and what they are made of. We also started looking at the properties they have. In little groups, we went around the school and used the IPADs to take photos of our findings. We also started looking at the materials origin and we were shocked to find out toothpaste is made from chalk! YUCK!

Our Global Mission

Date: 22nd Nov 2017 @ 4:07pm

We decided as a Class to focus on Zero Hunger. We thought about how we can work towards this goal as a class. We decided that we will not waste our food and will make sure that we will help the homeless by giving tinned food to food banks. We now have our Global Glasses on to show how we now see the world- what do you think? 

Outdoor Learning in Foundation Stage

Date: 22nd Nov 2017 @ 3:59pm

Look at all the different learning that has been taking place outside in our Foundation Stage! 

We've been practising recognising our 2D shapes and putting them in to patterns. We have also been practising (safely!) using hammers and screw drivers with the woods, and using magnets to take them out. We've really enjoyed using our Writing Shed, which became a Witches House near Halloween, and wrote lots of recipes for magic potions! We have especially enjoyed climbing, balancing and moving over and around the different things we have outside, developing our gross motor skills and practising being safe!

Cinderella Ball in Y1

Date: 22nd Nov 2017 @ 3:41pm

We had a lovely time at the Cinderella Ball. Each couple was announced by the Master of Ceremonies (Miss Costello) as they arrived. Everyone danced to the music, which was a waltz by the composer Strauss.  King Harry  made a royal proclamation and Prince Charming (Nathan) danced with Cinderella. The servants (Mrs Brooks and Mrs Brown) served the refreshments, which were pink champagne (lemonade) and cakes. When the clock struck midnight, CInderella ran out, leaving her sparkly slipper behind. The king and Prince Charming tried the slipper on all the girls. Mrs Cribb was very sad that it didn't fit her! It did fit Ruby-Lea though, as she was Cinderella. Cinderella and Prince Charming got married and we all had a last dance.

Trip to Chester

Date: 19th Nov 2017 @ 2:55pm

To start off our Learning Challenge 'Why was the Roman Empire so Powerful?' Year 4 visited the Dewa Museum in Chester. The day began with a tour around the Roman walls by a Roman solider. The children were shown the remains of the Roman theatre and were given training on how to be a Roman soldier. After lunch the children enjoyed a tour of the museum and they were shown artifacts from Roman times and experienced how a Roman Soldier lived. Here are some photos from the day.

End of topic WOW day

Date: 19th Nov 2017 @ 2:46pm

To complete our Roman topic, Year 4 had a day of creative art and cooking.  We made a Spaghetti Bolognese which the children took home and enjoyed.  Whilst the children were cooking, the others in class made Roman mosaics using real mosaic tiles.  The children enjoyed the day.
