In French Year 3 learnt how to recite the alphabet and played letter lotto which is bingo but played with letters. It was a lot of fun!
In art we drew a picture with trees, mountain, hills and a stream but everything was covered in different types of patterns.
In P.E we learned how to do a chest pass and we played 3 ball rounders with Mr Davis and Mr Hetherington. We are looking forward to performing our presentation on stage to the rest of primary and parents!

Year 4 & 5
The children in Year 4 and 5 have had a very productive week with lots of opportunities to work on the OneSchool skill ‘Involvement’. Children have been busy planning a short snap shot of their learning so far in science to share in parents assembly. They have also enjoyed working in groups to write a shared piece of writing based on our new book ‘Mirror’ by Jeannie Baker. This was a fantastic opportunity for children to support others and new ideas and contribute positively within a group, it was really pleasing to see them work so effectively together. Children then edited their writing using a new station system. Children move around visiting different editing stations where they are required to focus on a specific objective, for example checking and adding adjectives to their writing.

Editing Station – 3 adjectives
In maths we have stepped up to the challenge and we are not afraid of big numbers! Children have been adding numbers of up to and in some cases more than 4 digits.
Year 6 have had a good first week back and have been thrown straight into the high level work that this year expects. They have been looking at up-levelling their writing to include a wide range of high level features, including using adverbs to make their writing cohesive and subordinating conjunctions. There is so much to think about!
In maths we have started to look at multiplying and dividing a whole number by 10,100 and 1000. The children grasped this really quickly and have developed their learning to decimals.
They have also begun a new topic in science which involves looking at the structure of different cells and what each part does. It’s very technical!
As well as all that, Y6 have taken the initiative to prepare their own presentations for the parents’ assembly, with no input from me! This was a great opportunity for the children to develop their collaboration and time management skills.
Thank you to everyone who made it into school to support the children in celebrating their successes last term, it was overwhelming to see so many of you. As you can see from the photographs, the children have been extremely busy and have learned so much in such a short amount of time. They absolutely loved the opportunity to share their work and learning with you. We would love to hear what you thought of the assembly, so please email Miss Papuga if you have any comments. We look forward to seeing you at our next celebration on Friday 15th December, which will also tie in with the primary talent show.
