Electricity WOW day

Date: 19th Nov 2017 @ 2:41pm

As part of our new topic on Electricity, Year 4 had a visit from the local Fire Brigade. The firefighters gave the class a talk about the dangers of electricity and how to keep safe. They explained about the dangers of leaving appliances on overnight and how they could cause an electrical fire. Year 4 asked many questions and at the end of the talk they had a special treat and went outside to see the fire engine. We had lots of fun and the children had a go at using the fire hose and even got to sit in a fire engine.

Suspense Story!

Date: 17th Nov 2017 @ 3:43pm

In English, Y5 have been learning about how to build suspense in their writing. We have explored a story called 'Francis' which is about a girl who rows her boat into the middle of a lake and hears knocks on the bottom of the boat. We have listened to how the narrator reads the story and found where the author has built tension. 

The first time we heard the story we turned the lights off and made the room really spooky. We turned our tables upside down and pretended that we were in the boat instead of Francis!



The Enormous Turnip

Date: 17th Nov 2017 @ 2:09pm

Maths Board Games 2

Date: 19th Jul 2017 @ 11:32am

Y5 children have been busy making Maths Board Games for the Y3 children in the past week. 

Keibhy Powell in Y5 said, " First we looked at different types of board games which gave us inspiration and ideas for our own. We then planned our board games in our books and wrote down the instructions. After that, we looked at the Y3 maths curriculum and this was how we found out questions to ask the children. We then made it in real-life and made 3d touches to them to make them look more appealing."

Joel Thompson in Y3 said, "I really enjoyed the board games. They are really fun and no one is playing unfairly. I've been learning a lot of things like 6 X 50 is 300 and it was easy to work out!"


The children have all worked very hard and had a great time this morning.

Numbers Count

Date: 30th Jun 2017 @ 11:20am

Some of our Year 3 children have been taking part in Numbers Count since the Spring Term.

Numbers Count is a fun and exciting way for children to make accelerated progress in their Maths learning.  Each child on their Numbers Count journey receives 1 to 1 direct teaching for 40 sessions - 3 sessions per week.  

Today we have celebrated the achievements of the children who have been participating in Numbers Count with our SENCo - Miss Burns.  Some of the children's family members came to support them and to see how far they have progressed.  It was a wonderful morning to see the children's achievements and for the children to share their experiences while celebrating their success smiley.

That's The Way To Do It!!!

Date: 8th Jun 2017 @ 4:11pm

As a start to our Learning Challenge we have enjoyed an afternoon of seaside entertainment.

First of all we enjoyed our very own knickerbocker glory ice-creams, this was followed by a sing song - OH I DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE ...

We were very lucky as we then got to watch our very own Punch and Judy show - It was such fun and everyone laughed - It made us all smile.   Also, we got to experience how they put on a Punch and Judy show and we even got to try some of the puppets.

Have a look at some of the photographs to see how much we enjoyed it.


Plants, Plants and Plants

Date: 25th May 2017 @ 4:11pm

In Year 2 we have been investigating: Do roots always grown down and shoots always grow up?

For our home learning we were asked to show our understanding of plants.

Some of us created mini-gardens, planted flowers and created art work linked to our Learning Challenge question.

Take a look at some of the photos or have a look outside of our classroom for our projects.



Maths Board Games

Date: 19th May 2017 @ 2:24pm

As a treat at the end of assessment week, the children played maths board games. These board games challenge the childrens' timestable knowledge. The majority are strategy games which makes the children think about other players answers and not only their own. They involve working out multiple sums at once and making connections using the inverse operation.

The Elves and the Shoemaker

Date: 17th May 2017 @ 10:00am

As a whole school project, each class read the Elves and the Shoemaker and used this as a focus for their writing. In Y5, we decided to have a look at whether it was unfair or not that the Elves were working for the shoemaker. We had a discussion using P4C (Philosophy for Children) and came to the conclusion that the elves had poor working conditions, no pay, unsocialble hours and many more. A lot of the children noticed that this related to some of the articles that we have been looking at in our Values lessons. We produced news reports, newspaper articles and diary entries from the elves. 

Beowulf (Talk for Writing)

Date: 17th May 2017 @ 9:09am

We read the story of Beowulf as part of our Anglo-Saxon topic. We retold the story using actions and story maps which helped us to remember it. This meant we could concentrate on the quality of our writing rather than trying to remember the story.
