This week we're proud of...


Rosabella - 'I am proud of my fractions in maths because I enjoyed drawing them.'

Nancy - 'I really enjoyed doing my Easter themed acrostic poem. I am proud because I hit my target.'

Ellie - 'I am proud of my handwriting.'



The class have been working exceptionally hard this week and should be very proud of their learning across the curriculum and across the week. They have really enjoyed using ClassDojo for their reward points and the amount of points earned is testament to their efforts this week. They've enjoyed starting their new literacy book, the 'Super Happy Magic Forest' and have started well with fractions (Y3) and Pictograms/counting in 2s (Y2).



Ashley - 'I'm really proud of my maths and writing. I'm really proud about putting different words like adjectives into a potion for writing.'

Scarlet - 'I'm proud of my three times tables and my spellings and the work I did today. We wrote a story about Claire and her bad knee.'




We've had a great week continuing with our literacy and maths.

Oli - I'm proud of '... my Y4 and Y5 work - doing my times tables with them.'

Henry - I'm proud of '... the literacy when we've been story mapping.'



The children have finished their learning on explanation texts and have started a new unit using the Fiction story, 'On the Way Home' by Jill Murphy. The have already learnt the parts of the story so well.

Caitlin - I'm proud of '... learning more maths by thinking in my brain using denes.'

Eli - I'm proud of '... our story map in literacy. We have learnt how to do them.'



The children have been proud of their learning in maths. In Celebration Assembly, both Caitlin and Ashley said they had enjoyed learning their times tables in maths lessons. They all enjoyed using subordinating conjunctions ("special glue words") in literacy and came up with some very imaginative sentences for some cuddly toys. Tag Rugby appears to be a firm favourite in PE!



There is a lot to be proud of this week already.

'I'm proud of learning how to use numbers lines and everything in maths' - Ashley

'I like to be a friend. Today I liked learning with you (Mr Szender)' - Sophia



This week the children are really proud of their Christmas performance. Everyone has praised the children for their efforts in learning their parts and being courageous for both performances! A huge well done to all the children and adults involved!



The children has put a lot of effort into learning their parts for the play and should be proud of how the play is coming together. In maths, they have been challenged again with time and should be proud of the effort they have put in. Keep practising at home!



This week the children have really enjoyed getting and looking through their roles in the play. They've also made a start running through the scenes. Singing has been fantastic and they have really enjoyed practising the songs as a whole school. Tennis and multi-skills P.E. lessons have been fun and they have been challenged learning the time in maths.



This week the children have particularly enjoyed using 2D shapes to make larger 2D shapes and tessellating patterns. In literacy, the children demonstrated wonderful learning of the class text, 'How to Catch a Mermaid' by recalling the story in detail and writing a story mountain for it.
