Good morning everyone! We are missing you all. It is a beautiful day outside today and there are so many different colours in God’s world. While you are in your gardens or perhaps out for a sensible walk (with your family only), see how many different colours you can see. You could either take a picture, make a chart, sketch them or make a simple list!
Ellie is our star this week for excellent effort with her writing.
We have been journalist in Literacy this week reporting on our fantastic science day.
In Maths, we have been dicing with decimals and calculating the areas of parallelograms and triangles.
We have been looking at refraction of light in Science.
We have been practising our throwing, catching and dodging skills in PE.
Well done to Jared who is our star of the week! His positive attitude and hard work has really been noticeable this week! He is an asset to our class! What a superstar!
We have all been absolute gems this week, with not only completing assessments in literacy and maths but also with the level of uncertainty we have faced.
We have really enjoyed finishing our Bollywood dance in PE and our science topic of the human body. We have been looking at hills and mountains of the UK in geography. We used our atlas skills to find and name them on a map. It was tricky but fun!
Wishing you all a happy few weeks, keep safe and healthy and hopefully see you all soon.
This week’s star is Freddie who has really impressed us with his writing about the Great Fire of London. Well done Freddie!
To be honest the children have all been stars during a tricky week and we will miss those who won’t be joining us in school on Monday.
The children have really enjoyed writing their diary entries about the last day of the fire and have created a fantastic display.
They have also placed the events of the fire on a time line and used evidence to explore why the fire spread.
In Maths, Year 1 children have been solving addition and subtraction word problems and Year 2 children have continued to explore 2d and 3d shapes.
We hope you all take care and keep healthy.
Firstly, a huge well done all of class 1. We couldn’t choose just one star this week as we will miss all of the children and they have all worked so hard this term!
Highlights this week have included shape printing, creating some Easter bunnies and making fruit salad faces! We certainly haven’t had a rest!
We will be sending regular updates with ideas of fun, practical, cost free work that can be done at home if you choose. Wishing everyone a happy and safe few weeks to come.

Our star of the week is Harrison for excellent effort in Maths.
In Literacy, we have been theatre directors. We have taken the story of the gruffalo and changed it into a playscript that can be performed on stage.
In Maths, we have been focusing on metric measures and solving problems with fractions.
We have had a fabulous science week.
On Wednesday, we focused on engineering and building structures that could support weight. We used cardboard tubes and straws to build the tallest towers we could. However, there was a catch! The tower had to be able to hold weight. We tested each tower under varying weights. Excellent teamwork was shown throughout- well done everyone!
On Thursday, we had three visitors who worked in the field of science. They brought along a range of objects linked to their job and we had to guess from them what they did! It was very interesting. We also skyped two scientists – one in New Zealand and one in Philadelphia. A huge thank you to all of our guests- you really inspired us!
On Friday, Class 4 led a beautiful Lenten mass.
Well done to Alfie, who is our star of the week this week! He has been trying extremely hard in lessons and has demonstrated a wonderful positive attitude towards his learning. Keep it up! What a super star!!
This week has been very eventful! We thoroughly enjoyed Science Day on Thursday; not only did we speak to many influential women who work within different scientific fields we also made our own digestive systems using tights. It was so much fun!! It really helped us to understand what actually goes on in our own bodies every day. We have been continuing with our topic of the UK in geography; we looked at counties this week. We found ours and labelled those around us, we then researched any county in England we wanted and found some really interesting facts.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend and see you all next week.
Well done Eden who is this week’s star. Eden has been chosen for being an enthusiastic reader, who not only reads fluently but has excellent understanding too. Well done Eden!
As part of Science week Class 2 has been exploring Microhabitats. The children created their own scientific questions about minibeasts and their habitats, searched for evidence and then used diagrams to show what they had found out. They then designed amazing bug hotels which we plan to build over the next couple of weeks. We also listened to four different scientists to find out how they use science every day.
Firstly a huge well done to our star of the week, Lola! She has been putting 100% effort into every subject this week. She was also extra enthusiastic about our Science day visitors and says she wants to be a computer scientist when she is older.
This week’s highlights have included, Science and Engineering day/International Woman’s day which involved skype calls and visits from some exciting female scientists. The children got to look at some of the equipment that they use in their jobs and later created posters about which kind of scientist they might like to be one day. The children also enjoyed using their engineering skills to create a bridge for a remote-control car to cross a ‘lake’. Finally, as we have been learning about 2D shapes the children did an outdoor shape hunt in the rain!
