WELL DONE!

It was so lovely to see members of Ruby Class getting certificates in assembly today. Several children have now passed their first and/or second level in Rocket Maths and many of them know how to correctly spell 100 or even 200 of the Year 1 words.

We are very proud of all of you!

THE PLATINUM JUBILEE DRAW ALONG WITH STEVE ANTONY

Today, we were lucky enough to be one of 500 schools that took part in a draw along with Steve Antony, the author of The Queen's Hat, the book we have been learning about in class. He read the story to us and then taught us how to draw some of the key characters. The children did a fantastic job and Steve Antony himself said how brilliant their drawings were.

BIG ME WEEK - SO FAR!

We've had a brilliant start to Big Me Week and the children have enjoyed talking about all the different jobs they might like to have when they are older. We have wannabe footballers, vets, teachers, fashion designers, police officers, shop keepers and chefs, to name but a few! They all had good reasons for why they thought their chosen job would suit them.

 

This morning we had a visit from the Police. The children asked lots of questions and all took turns at sitting on the motorbikes. Some even had a go at sounding the siren, flashing the lights and trying the handcuffs on. 

This afternoon, we had an online chat with Kim, who told us all about her job which is being a midwife. It was really informative and the children were fascinated to hear about babies - especially how they are born!

 

Please look in the photo section for more pictures.

TUDOR HOUSES

Wow! We have been blown away by the Tudor houses that you have been bringing in to school. We have displayed them outside in the corridor so that the rest of the school can see all your hard work and can enjoy looking at them.

MAKING JAM SANDWICHES!

We are currently learning about instructions. Yesterday, the children ordered some instructions and today, they followed them to make a jam sandwich. They really enjoyed this activity and couldn't wait until the end of the day so they could eat them! Please click on the camera icon at the bottom of this page and look in the Spring 1 folder for photos.

SELF PORTRAIT HOLIDAY TASK
