Year 6


We have had a very busy week in Year 6 and really enjoyed Languages Day on Friday afternoon when we wrote simple Latin sentences. Well done to everyone from the class who represented the school at football in the Parish Cup and also well done to Sadie who was our only Year 6 runner in the cross country this week. Don't forget Mrs Banham's capitals challenge: there will be prizes for the top boy and top girl.

Year 4


This week in year 4 - we have continued learning about the Romans and have heard all about a brave woman called Boudicca. Our homework is to see what we can remember!In English, we learned all about metaphors and have written some emotional poems about feeling sad. They are fantastic!  In maths, we have continued learning different methods of addition and have finally finished our Roman numerals to make our 100 square...check out the photo below to see what it looks like! Mrs Spence is very impressed with how it looks! As she was so impressed, we finally got our class fish! So over the weekend, we need to think of some good names for them!

Year 3


What a busy week Year 3 have had! We began the week with our whole class brass lesson, it was the first time we all played our instruments, you can see a picture of us all playing below. We continued our work on addition and began to look at some Indian myths and traditional tales as part of our Diwali topic. Finally, we finished off the week with a Spanish themed day of activities, as Friday was European Language Day. First we made microwave paella (yum!), then we found out the names of key ingredients in Spanish. Later on, we wrote instructions telling others how to make the delicious dish before ending the day by creating artwork depicting the ingredients and their names. Below you can see pictures of our culinary and artistic masterpieces in the making!
