โ€˜A Stepping Stone into the Futureโ€™

Summer Term A

Summer 1 Week 6

A huge well done to all of our children who received Achievers Certificates this week. Maycee, Ethan, Matthew, Eva and Carter were really pleased to get an award - well done! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ†

Following on from our fabulous non-fiction writing about barn owls last week, we decorated some barn owl cupcakes ๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿง! The children had fun decorating them and youโ€™ll be pleased to know they tasted delicious! ๐Ÿ˜‹

The proof of the pudding is in the eating! ๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿง๐Ÿ˜‹

Summer 1 Week 5

Congratulations to our children receiving certificates this week, who were very pleased with their Achieverโ€™s Awards! Well done to William, Ellie, Ethan, Maia and Theo ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ†

We enjoyed listening to the story Veg Patch Party by Claire Foges and Al Murphy. We even had a boogie along with the musical YouTube version of the story! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿฅ”

We have been learning about barn owls so that we can write information about them. We enjoyed watching video clips about these beautiful birds from the Barn Owl trust. Look at our super non-fiction writing! ๐Ÿฆ‰

We have been practising our number bonds to ten to help improve our mathematical fluency. We used a great maths game called Hit The Button (which is free to use - just google Hit The Button) and is brilliant for practising times tables, doubles and halves as well as number bonds. We enjoyed trying to beat our score! Our best score so far is 12/12 ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

Summer 1 Week 4

Well done to our children who received an Achievers certificate this week, presented by Mr MingStones! Danny, Jackson, James and Joe were very proud! Maycee was really pleased to get the Headteacherโ€™s Award ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ‘.

We all really enjoy our Feel Good Friday, which is a live streamed music lesson by Rock Steady Music, who also provide in person music lessons in school for some of our KS2 children. As you can see, we have some fabulous dancers in our class, who love joining in with the grand finale! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ•บ

Summer 1 Week 3

Congratulations to our children who received an Achieverโ€™s Certificate this week. Nate, Lacey, Carter, Thomas and Bluebell were all very proud of their achievements! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ†

Friday was Number Day to raise funds for the NSPCC. Thank you to all of our families for your donations. The children looked great in their clothes with numbers on, and we played a fun game of Bingo to practise our number skills. Eyes down for a full house!

In ICT, we have learned about databases and have been finding ways to group information and objects. We found different ways to sort 2D shapes.

Summer 1 Week 2

Well done to our 5 children who received an Achieverโ€™s Award this week. Emily, Eva, Joey, Matthew and Reece were very pleased with their certificates! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ†

The children have been planted seeds this week. We hope that despite the changeable weather, they will grow into broad bean plants that can be planted in our school allotment and be harvested later in the year! ๐Ÿคž๐ŸŒฑ

We watched an online NSPCC assembly this week. The message was for children to Speak Out and Stay Safe. The children learned that they can speak to a trusted adult if they have a worry, big or small. They also found out about Childline and that there is a helpline to call if any child needs advice. They enjoyed seeing Ant & Dec doing the introduction!

We have had fun this week measuring length using cubes.

Summer 1 Week 1


It has been wonderful to welcome the children back after the Easter break! We hope the Easter bunny was kind to you all and that you enjoyed a relaxing break with some lovely sunshine.


The children had a wonderful time in the Bushcraft Area this week, where Mrs McHatton showed them how to make a hedgehog using clay and found materials. The children thoroughly enjoyed practising their fine motor skills to create their very own hedgehog ๐Ÿฆ”.

The fabulous finished hedgehogs!๐Ÿฆ”

We were delighted this week to win this fabulous Golden Ticket! Isnโ€™t it fancy?! This means that our class has had the best attendance in school this week. We are really proud of this achievement! Well done children and thank you parents for your support ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ†

Mr MingStones called in to give out our 5 class certificates this week. Well done to Ethan, Pollyanna, Harper and William. Jacob was very pleased to receive the Headteacherโ€™s Award! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜
