Star of the Week

Eva for her AMAZING effort in her English work this week!


Head teacher’s Award

Cole for working SUPER hard in his Maths!



In English this week we have continued to focus on the first of the Harry Potter books. We have started to write our own versions of the story together. We have been focusing on lots of different skills such as sentences with simile starters and -ing starters. The children have done a wonderful job of writing their stories and we are all very proud of them.


In Maths we have continued to focus on addition and subtraction. The children have been revising the written methods and using them to manage very large numbers. The children have all done an excellent job here.


In Science we have continued to focus on irreversible changes and in particular have focused on other scientist who discovered how to mix certain materials to create a new useful material. The children used the internet and other sources of information to lean about Spencer Silver, who invented the glue for sticky notes and Ruth Benerito, who invented wrinkle-free cotton.
