Our Work

Spring Term

It is quite unbelievable how we find ourselves in March already; the year has really flown by!  The children have been working incredibly hard and showing great focus and resilience as we look ahead to SATS.

English

This term, we have been looking at the book ‘Skellig’ by David Almond. It is a book that has left us full of mystery and wonder and we are all very excited to go and see it in the theatre.  We have written character descriptions, letters and poetry based on this text and have taken part in lots of scavenger hunts to find and identify the grammar and text features required to do this.    

  

 

Maths

We have been working incredibly hard on our arithmetic this term, carrying out lots of activities to increase our accuracy and speed when answering arithmetic questions.  

We have also had fun learning new areas of maths including algebra and ratio.  We have carried out lots of active maths activities to help us understand these new concepts.

  

 

 

World Book Day

On Friday 8th March, we were lucky enough to take part in World Book Day.  The theme for our day was ‘Snuggle Stories’ which meant we could come to school in our pyjamas!  We had a great time reading to the nursery children and sharing our favourite childhood books with them.  We also did some inference and deduction based work on ‘The Mysteries of Harris Burdick’ – it left us with far more questions than answers!  Using all of these questions, we then went on to write our own stories based on the pictures in the book.

    

 

British Science Week

We had a great time during British Science Week, carrying out lots of fun and interesting experiments. We were inspired by Mr Payne’s assembly to go away and think scientifically about the things around us and used many household items to create a range of scientific experiments.  We had an amazing time and used skills including problem solving, teamwork and clear communication. Here are some photos of the fun we got up to:
