‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Summer Term A

Week 4


As always we've had a jam packed week this week and have been working really hard. We started the week in the Bush Craft area making bird feed by mixing together lard, bird seed, suet and meal worms. Some of us really enjoyed squishing it all together but others not so much but we still did our best. 

This week we have started a brand new class book linked to this terms topic on Explorers. The book is called Oliver and the Seawigs and we started by looking at the front cover, back cover and some extracts from the book to see what we thought the book would be about. We thought about the illustrations and words and thought of and wrote questions about each one and discussed them as a whole class. We were able to draw conclusions and make predictions about what might happened based on what we had already read and seen.

As Eid fell this Thursday we had a class assemble about Eid and Ramadan then we made Eid cards for Mohammed who was enjoying Eid celebrations with his family.

Week 3


Once again we have had a really busy week despite it only being 4 days long. We have been working really hard learning how to find fractions of amount and adding and subtracting fractions to mastery level. We ended the week with a non uniform day for the NSPCC number day and really stretched out maths skills by working out the budget for a party which really was quite tricky!

Week 2

We have had a super week this week in school. We started with a fabulous session in the Bush Craft area making model hedgehogs from clay and small twigs we found in the bush craft area.

In English we worked like troopers developing our Journalistic skills. We have written outstanding newspaper reports about the arrival of the Iron Man including fantastic powerful descriptions and quotes from characters who witnessed the events and some of the events that followed. We have also had our second session of ABC with Mr Mather learning all about attitudes, behaviours  and consequences so that we all grow up to be super citizens in the future. 

After all of our extra hard work this week we are really looking forward to a long weekend. Let's hope the sun is shining!
