Thursday 25th March

This week we have been finding out about religion and the different Roman gods in our topic work. In RE we have discussed fasting as well as looking at the Easter Story. For English and maths the focus has been on mid-year assessments and it is clear that there are now gaps in learning for some children that have developed during the pandemic over the last couple of academic years. I will be addressing this over the next term. Some children still need to learn all their times tables and this is holding them back in areas of learning such as division and fractions. Please push the learning of tables at home. Overall I have been really pleased with their attitude to learning since returning to school and we have had some lovely writing handed in this week. Keep up the hard work children!

We have a had a great return to school with 100% attendance every day so far this week so obviously the children wanted to get back to normality! It ewas lovely to see them all and hoping to see my own children within the next month. Next week homework will be on IXL, I thought they needed a rest from home learning this week. We are continuing the theme of ‘The Romans’ for the next few weeks and we will be starting percentages in maths shortly, great start back,well done children!

Thursday 3rd December

This term is flying. I am writing after a great morning of maths! The children worked so hard and we managed to cram in so much. I was hugely impressed with their efforts. I think they need the day doing something more relaxing on Friday! Well done to Herbie, last week’s pupil of the week, I have been really impressed with his efforts in journaling and his singing in class is excellent! We have just completed a second Van Gogh study of the Starry Night and it is fantastic to see how their art work has come on since Y1. Next week we will be bridge building!

This week we have continued with the Highwayman in English and multiplication in maths. Please show your child the method you would use and see if you use the same. Your child should understand your way of working as they have looked at a variety of methods. This week pupil of the week goes to Summer-Rai. I am always so impressed with her presentation and her books look fantastic! Attached is a piccy from our Anti-bullying day!

This week we have been having fun solving problems in maths and we are continuing to work on multiplication methods. In English children are starting their reinventions of the poem ‘The Highwayman’ and in RE we have introduced the concept of pilgrimage. Olivia wrote a lovely piece on a trip to Paris and is this week’s pupil of the week, as long as she promises not to show me another play for a week or two with the gang of girls!

Great to see everyone safe and sound this week as we go into lockdown. Fortunately things are carrying on as usual here other than extra handwashing! This week we have been thinking about remembrance and children have been designing a remembrance garden. In English children have been introduced to the poem ‘The Highwayman’ and in maths we are working on multiplication. This week, Learner of the Week goes to Betsy for u;ltra speedy science research on Monday, well done Betsy!

Friday 23rd October

As I write, children have just returned home for a well deserved break. They have worked really hard over the last seven weeks and deserve the rest.

Last week Archie was recognised as pupil of the week for his hard work across all areas and this week a huge well done to Hannah who was one of a number of children to produced some great writing. Look forward to Monday week and seeing them after the half term!
