  • Year 6 children enjoy a bit of outdoor problem solving

    On Tuesday Year 6 made the most of the Spring sunshine with an outdoor problem solving activity. In teams of two or three Mrs Barrett and Mrs Rowe’s Maths groups combined to solve fifteen Easter themed questions. They all worked with great enthusiasm and determination, supporting each other to make sure that they got the correct answers.   When we checked the answers at the end Abby and Emily had the highest overall score and were crowned Easter Maths champions, celebrating with a few mini eggs each!

  • Year 5 compete in French sports and activities lessons

    Yr5 MFL French

    After learning to describe themselves and other people this month, Year 5 enjoyed a game of ‘Guess Who’ in French lessons. They used the language they had learned to ‘forensically’ eliminate choices of different heights, hair and eye colours, etc., and finally discover the culprit. This week our attention has moved on to the popular topic of sports and other activities, with some verbs using jouer (= to play) and others using faire (= to do). The familiar “F-O-O-T-B-A-L-L” song has been engrained into our minds, and a fun pelmanism game of matching sports vocabulary with pictures has caused great […]

  • Year 4 – ‘Get the School to Rock’

    Year 4 play

    This week, we rounded off our ‘natural disasters’ topic by completing newspaper reports about earthquakes. We learnt that the opening lines should sum up the story concisely, including all the key information- what, where, when, who and why. We then acted as journalists and interviewed ‘eyewitnesses’, so that we could include their quotes in our reports. We learnt that quotations tell us exactly what has been said and who said it. Using quotes helped us to tell the story by giving the reader the opinions of the people involved. To finish this unit of work, we wrote a short script […]

  • Year 3 perform ‘Jason and the Argonauts’

    Year 3

    A busy week for Year 3 with lots of rehearsing for our production – “Jason and the Argonauts”. The production went very well and the costumes looked fabulous. Everyone sang clearly and delivered their lines confidently. A good time was had by all. “It was amazing!” said Keya and Oscar S. In English the children thought of lots of similarities and differences between the ancient and modern olympics. We are looking forward to our Easter break and the summer term when we will be focusing on Castles. At home, over the holidays, the children could do some research into the […]

  • Year 2 taste different Indian food dishes

    Year 2a

    On Tuesday Year 2 had a brilliant morning cooking and tasting some Indian food. We smelt and tasted lots of different spices and lots of us really loved the smell of cinnamon. Then we tasted some chapati, naan bread and poppadoms with mango chutney and lime pickle. Everyone loved the breads and poppadoms especially dipped in some sweet mango chutney but the lime pickle was a bit too spicy for most of us!. We also made our own raita dip by grating cucumber and chopping mint and adding it to some yoghurt. To go with our dip we made our […]
