‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn A

Week 4 


We have had a busy week this week. In science we learnt about micro organism. We even had chance to do an experiment. We found out what food yeast likes the most.

In maths we looked at worded maths problem and worked in pairs to try and find the multiple answers. In English, we have done some lovely writing. 

Week 3

We have had a busy week. In maths, we have started to look at rounding numbers to 10, 100 and 1,000. We have worked really hard in English writing lovely poems and writing letters to the Prime Minster. In science we have looked at classifying plants and animals. We have lots of fun cycling this week. Even though some of us found it challenging we still had fun. Have a look at the pictures below. 

Week Two


Week one of street dance and incredible what the children have achieved in one lesson. Enjoy the video below!


We have had lots of fun in science this week learning how to classify different animals eg mammals, amphibians, birds, fish and molluscs. We then took a closer look at each category and looked at the differences between the animals in that category.

Some of our Year 5 girls had the chance to go to Newcastle School Girls and research female scientist in small groups.  Have a look at the pictures below.

Week One


Welcome back everyone and what a great first week we have had.


The children have settled in well getting to grips with Roman numeral - why not ask them which letters represent which numbers.

I =1   V = 5   X = 10   L=50   C = 100   D = 1000 and M = 1000


We also started reading our new class text - Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian.


It was lovely to see most of the children in correct PE kit which is a white t-shirt and black shorts/leggings. PE lesson are on Mondays and Fridays.


The children have had homework and this is due in by Friday the 15th. However the children are more than welcome to bring it in before if they have finished it.


In November, we are having a Spelling Bee competition with Knoplaw Primary School and we have to beat them. I have attached a copy of the spellings the children need to learn for the competition. We may even have a teacher round.


Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine.


Kind regards
