Year 5


This week we had another special visitor! This time it was Joseph Mills from Oldham Athletic Football Club. We asked him lots of questions about almost everything from football to dog breeds and more. Thank you so much to Mrs. Holden, who arranged the visit, we really enjoyed it! We have also been working hard on our reading this week and looking at place value in mathematics.

Year 6

In maths, we have been revising division strategies and looking at how a remainder can be 3, .5 or 3/6. We have finally finished our Trolls of Vik stories and will be writing our own mini-books over the next few weeks as a final version. We're all looking forward to Castleshaw on Monday and each and every one of us promises to remember what we need to bring. Below are the Trolls of Vik. How do you think they became petrified?

Year 4


As it has been friendship week, we have talked a lot about what makes a good friend and why friendships are important. We also discussed how best to keep friends. After this, we created our own 'lonely hearts' friendship adverts asking for new friends. They are now on our friendship board and are anonymous to start with. Other children can read our adverts and if they like the sound of us and want to be our friend, they can lift the flap and see who we are - then they can ask to be our friend. See our pictures below! We also made friendship bracelets for each other, we have been wearing them with pride. 


On top of that, we have moved on to grid method and expanded column method for multiplication. Mrs Spence is so pleased with how quickly we are picking it up! We just need to learn our times tables off my heart!

Year 3


Year 3 have been hard at work this week. We continued our multiplication work in maths, and some of us are getting very good at it! We finished our week of maths by making posters explaining how to solve multiplication calculations, some of which can be seen below.


In English, we have been looking at the features of letters. We even each wrote one to Mrs. Sheridan which was all about the Diwali facts we have learned since September. We tried extra hard to write an interesting opening, and some of us even included conditional sentences! 


In art, we have been creating designs for our diya lamps which we will begin making out of clay next week. We discovered the importance of making a prototype to find out whether our designs were feasible by creating a first attempt using play dough.


Finally, in our computing sessions, we finished off our instructions on how to make the delicious coconut ladoos that we made two weeks ago. You can see some of the finished instructions below.
