‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term A

Week 6


On Tuesday, we had a very special visitor in school, which allowed the children to dissect a sheep’s heart. Although a little unsure at first, the children overcame their fears and all participated in some way to the lesson. We also finally managed to speak to speak to our friends in Holland! It was lovely to hear the conversations flowing, with some children performing dances and others playing games. Please see our gallery below for some photos.

Week 5


This week, we have worked on area and perimeter in maths, and reading comprehensions in English. In science we have began looking at the heart in preparation for our dissection next week. We also tried to speak to our Holland friends, but unfortunately due to technical issues, this didn't go quite to plan. This will be rescheduled soon. The iPads have been upgraded this week so apologies for no photos.

Week 4


This week we have written and edited a diary entry about the Lighthouse Keeper from his perspective. In maths we have been re-capping co-ordinates. We have also started SAT prep and baseline assessments in Doodle.

Week 3


We have been powering on with fractions in maths this week and are now all so much more confident. We met our Holland school friends for the first time this week via Teams. Everyone was exceptionally well behaved and asked some very interesting questions. We are looking forward to meeting them again in a couple of weeks time. Below, are some photos from our day in Bushcraft.

Week 2


the children have worked very hard this week for assessment week,  it their hard work was rewarded with a visit from the Happy Puzzle Company. 

Week 1


Welcome back to a very cold and snowy start to the new term. This week we have been recapping on fractions in maths and continuing our work on A Beginners Guid to Life On Earth in English. We had a great session with Mrs McHatton on Wednesday where we were taking photos of our natural world. The children all became budding photographers and some of the photos they took were fantastic. We will hopefully share these with you very soon.
