Made to measure!

Are Autumn born children generally taller than summer-born children. In our independent investigation, children set out to explore the answer to this tricky and interesting question. They measured, averaged and even graphed their results.

Interestingly we discovered...censored-top secret!

Journaling Genius!

Some fantastic and interesting examples of reading journaling!

Keep up the great work! 


Star of the week!

 This week, I've chosen somebody for reading journaling. Their work is full of interesting details,  it is very creative and it looks amazing (in fact, it's just like Mr Fellows 🙂 ) This person has also had a fantastic attitude since the very first day this year is brilliantly determined to improve; they're always asking what they could do next to make their work even better!

This week, it has gone to a girl...

This week, it has gone to... Leshea!

Myself and Mrs Shaw couldn't be more proud of her!

Keep up the amazing work,

Mr F and Mrs S

As part of our digital safety topic, we identified what we like to do with technology and ensured that we all knew who we could ask to help us in the event that we came across something uncomfortable online.

One School, One Book- The Tin Forest

This week, all across the school, we have been exploring the Tin Forest. This is the tale of a man who dreams to make his environment better. He follows his dream and turns trash into treasure. As creatures move in to this new metallic habitat, the Tin Forest comes to life!

****    END OF YEAR    ****


As we approach the end of the year, we can take time over the next few days to reflect and remember our time together at the start of the year. Usually at this time, we would be saying goodbye and wishing you all the best of luck for next year. We will still be able to do this, just in a slightly different way this year! 


Due to being unable to post end of year gifts out with reports because of sizes, they will be available to collect from the office from Thursday. If they are uncollected, then they will be available when we return in September.


We hope you have a lovely Summer holiday and we can't wait to see you around school in September!
