What an amazing week we have had! The children did themselves proud at our first class assembly in school for 18 months. We welcomed lots of parents, and carers, into school and shared all of our work this half term. The children used fantastic loud voices and made sure that their singing was just as fantastic as their speaking voices!
We have also been learning about direct and indirect quotes in English and exploring addition and subtraction in Maths as well as finding out about Star Carr in History.
Our sports have tired us out this week too and, we are definitely ready for the weekend!
Please don’t forget to dress up for our Stone Age day next Thursday if you can. If not, your school uniform will be fine on the day. Keep an eye out for the KS2 teachers getting their costumes ready too!
This week, we have been placing numbers on a number line to 10,000. We have worked hard on focusing on our place value and making sure that we place the number in the correct place. We have also been working on our grammar skills and reminding ourselves where punctuation should be!
In History, we have been placing events from prehistoric times onto a timeline. Ask your child if they are able to tell you how long the Stone Age went on for!
We have also been keeping ourselves fit with yoga, ability training and rugby. We are so fit!

I know you guys are going to be great at staying motivated and safe at home and I look forward to seeing you all when we can all get back together again.
Welcome back after half term. I hope you all had a lovely break and it is great to see you all back in school this week.
If possible could you please collect some food labels for Science? It would be great of you can bring them in for next Tuesday!
This week we have been converting lengths in Maths and investigating fact files in English. We will be creating our own fact files soon on an animal of our own choice. We have also started our topic all about rainforests. I have attached some extra homework here if yo fancy adding it to your Maya homework. Some of the activities are very practical and fun so have a go!
This week we have been busy continuing our topics of multiplication and division in Maths, and persuasive writing in English. We used role played, using persuasive language, to convince our partner that WE needed the special pen. We also used decision alley to convince Mrs McLaughlin that we should share her birthday chocolate fingers!
We have also enjoyed learning apabout Saints Cuthbert, Saints Aidan, Saint Mary and Saint James The Great. Hopefully you may see some of our work on display in the hall when you next visit.
Welcome back and Happy New Year to you all!
We will be focusing on The Romans as our topic for this term and we have lots of exciting activities planned.
We have been working on perimeter of shapes this week. The children have worked hard to ensure that they are adding all the sides of the shapes. They even asked each other challenging questions to extend their learning!
In English we have started the genre of image poetry. The children have been learning about the form and structure of poems and identifying analogies.
During History we became archaeologists a went to Egypt to find out about god and goddesses. Ask your child what they can remember.
We have also been learning to identify pitch in songs and working on the weather in French. We also had an opportunity to watch Orange Class's assembly. They did a great job.
It would to see as many as possible of the children on Saturday too, for singing at St James's church for the Advent Market at 11.20.
Have a lovely weekend.
What a busy week!
Thank you so much for coming and supporting us as we did our Class Assembly. We really hope you enjoyed it.
We have been finishing off some of our topics this week. One of our favourite things we have done has been created a landscape picture in repsonse to the artwork we have look at by John Brunson. Have a look at the picturspes below at how much fun we had completeing them!
This week we have completed our genre of fantasy stories. The children completed their own story about a new character and their adventures. The stories were amazing! Well done everyone.
In Maths we have been exploring fractions of an amount. Some children have found these quite tricky so some practise at home would be good idea. As always, please also support your child in learning their times tables too.
The children created their own travel brochure page for visiting Egypt. We will be showcasing this half terms work in our assembly next Wednesday. Please do come along and support us.
The children have been given lines to learn for this so please practise loud voices and standing smartly ready for the big event.
This week we have focused on completing subtraction questions using addition to count on. We have discovered patterns in numbers and used this knowledge to complete 'no thinking' calculations'. Ask you child to show you how clever this is.
In English, we have been exploring the different characters in the text 'How to Train Your Dragon'. It's amazing how different they all are. I wonder which character your child identifies with the most?
We have also been completing our fact finding mission on where Egypt is in the world and focusing on its geographical features. It has been interesting to compare our country to Egypt and spot the similarities and differences. I think all the children wished there was more sunshine here!
Welcome back everyone!
It’s lovely to have everyone back and looking so smart. We have hit the road running and enjoying our new learning journey.
Please remeber that we are off to Robinwood next Wednesday so some good nights sleep will be of benefit!
We have been working together on a Maths problem. Look at how hard we have been working...
