We had a great final football session this week with the children playing mini-games to show off their skills and teamwork. See our gallery below for lots more photos!
Over the past few weeks we have been learning how to use different clay techniques: pinching, coiling and slabbing. The children have really enjoyed learning from our resident expert Miss Plant, and have been getting very creative with clay. We've been extremely impressed with what they've produced. This is all part of the build up to the children spending a day creating their own mythical buildings - we will be doing this in the first few weeks of the Spring term. See our gallery for more pictures.
Here are the super readers who have completed 2 laps of the reading racetrack in RECORD TIME. Keep up the great reading, 4FE!
We enjoyed our visit from Lewis Daly. (Thanks to everyone who brought in their sponsor forms... Dealine is Thursday!) Lewis gave us some great messages about trying our hardest and never giving up. See more photos in the gallery at the bottom of the page.
How can we show 2 times 6? How is that different from 12 divided by 6? What about 3 x 4?.... Just some of the questions we thought about in maths today. We used cubes and arrays to help our thinking!
This group of readers has now joined the '1 lap completed club'! Super stuff!
The children enjoyed completing a times tables racetrack to help them practise their facts. I've added them to the 'file to download' at the bottom of this page as many of the children were keen to use them at home. There is a blank one that you can add any questions you like to!
Look at the next group of readers to complete a lap of the reading racetrack! Well done to all the children who have completed a lap so far this year. Keep up the great reading!
We have been working on Internet safety this week and have discussed and written our own rules to help us stay safe.
Look at our super star readers who have already completed a lap of our reading racetrack!
We have had a fantastic autumn themed Forest School day. The children made an impressive array of leaf collages and conker garlands, as well as creating spooky tunnels and doing activities around the camp fire. We definitely picked the right day for the weather! See more pictures in our gallery below.
We visit the library each Friday afternoon. The children really enjoy recommending new books to each other. See more pictures in our gallery below!
We have been exploring different types of bridge, focusing on truss, suspension, cable stay and arch. Look at our gallery below for lots of photos!
