Don't forget to check out the useful websites linked to our current topics.
Help learning at home.
Following our Parents' information evening, we have attached below the following documents to help when your child is completing their homework.
Reading is incredibly important and reading each day for a minimum of ten minutes helps your child's reading fluency so much. Equally important is deepening your child's understanding and comprehension of a variety of texts. To help out, we have attached a range of question ideas to ask when reading with your child.
In our maths, we use specific calculation strategies within school at the various different Key Stage levels, to avoid the "that is not how my teachers tells me to do it" conversations, we have attached our Lower Key Stage Two calculations strategies to help when completing maths homework.
During out English lessons, we use no nonsense spelling strategies to help learn our spellings. The children will be used to using these strategies and would be able to apply these at home. Please find these strategies attached below.
Parents' information evening slides
For those who couldn't attend Parents' information evening. Please find attached the slides from the evening.
Art- Form and Perspective.
In our art studies this half term, we have been exploring form and perspective. WE have been looking at the foreground, midground and the background as demonstrated in the photographs below.
Children in Need 2021
As part of Children in Need 2021, we dressed up as our favourite bears! We had a lot of fun discussing the meaning of Children in Need alongside raising lots of money.
Anti-Bullying Week 2021
As part of Anti-Bullying Week, we discussed what bullying was and how we can be "Anti" bullying, making sure we stand up for what is right. We looked at what words could create a positive attitude and atmosphere in school.
Hello Yellow - Youth Mental Health Awareness
As part of Hello Yellow, we all dressed up with items of yellow clothing alongside writing some positive affirmations around our mental health.
In art this week, we mixed tones, tints and shades of yellow to enable us to create a realistic painting of a single crisp (a quaver).
In science, we mixed fruit juice, banana and crackers in a bag before passing the mixture through tights, to represent some of the stages of the digestion process.
