New Tablets!

Year 1 showed lots of enjoyment this morning, as the first to try out our brand new tablets. We used an app called “Hairy Letters”, this helped to practice our letter formation. A big thumbs up from us!

Money in maths

As an end to our maths topic on money, Year 3 have become shopkeepers and customers this morning! This was a great, fun way to revisit what we have learnt about money and giving change earlier this week. Children have all had a fantastic lesson!

Art Week!

Year 4 had a great time investigating different printing methods in art. We used polystyrene tiles and plastic acetate to print onto paper. Later this week we will be creating our own greetings cards.

Fossil Fun!

Year 3 have had a fantastic afternoon as scientists, we have been learning all about fossils! First, children discovered the process of how a fossil is formed. Next, we made our own fossils using bread as the ground and soil layers and sweets to represent the animal remains. We applied pressure to our layers of sediment using dictionaries. Children are very excited to become Palaeontologists and dig up their fossils in our next lesson!

Library: Virtual Visit from Jeff Kinney

Year 5 and 6 enjoyed a virtual visit with best selling author of Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, Jeff Kinney this morning. He showed us how he plans his stories, sharing extracts from his own diaries, and led us in a draw-a-long of Greg.

Here are some of the children’s thoughts on the virtual visit:

  • I loved doing the draw-a-long.
  • It was really funny when Jeff tried to draw blind-folded!
  • Greg isn’t called Wimpy in Brazil as they don’t have that word. He’s called Banana Boy instead because that’s what his body looked like.
  • It was interesting finding out why Jeff became a writer
  • I can’t believe how long it took him to write his first book – 8 years!
  • The drive-thru book signing looked amazing!

Tasty Tuesday on Wellness Wednesday

This morning, Year 6 were making their very own salsa as part of healthy schools week. The children enjoyed creating their own dish using simple ingredients such as tomatoes, onions, fresh coriander, garlic and lime – they did this with little to no instructions. Mr Young judged their work Paul Hollywood style but due to the impressive quality of each dish, found it very difficult to decide on a winner!

Well done everyone and I hope many of you try this recipe out at home, your parents will love it!
