The big SWITCH OFF to take care of our planet

By Jodie Williams | April 4, 2019

Over the last few weeks, children have been finding ways to take care of themselves and other people and now we’re thinking a little wider. The planet and our environment needs our help and any little thing that we (as individuals) can do, will make a difference. On Saturday evening there was a global, ‘Earth…

Enchanted Woodland

By Jodie Williams | April 4, 2019

Year 1 have been very busy with their home learning for our current topic all about the Enchanted Woodland. We have shared all the exciting adventures the children have been taking in their local woods. Children have been building dens, growing their own plants, observing what they can see in the woods and keeping diaries…

Igloo Challenge

By Jodie Williams | April 4, 2019

Year 5 and 6 have shown a fantastic growth mindset this half term during lots of individual tasks and collaborative challenges, including a very tricky decimal investigation and an igloo construction contest. We are so proud of their ‘never-give-up’ attitude, their positivity and the support they show one another.

An explosive Spring Term in Year 3/4

By Jodie Williams | April 4, 2019

We have had a fantastic term learning about our topic, ‘Tremors.’ During this topic we have learnt about tectonic plates; the earth’s structure and how rocks and fossils are formed. The children have also shown an incredible knowledge of volcanoes and the historical eruption of Pompeii. We received some amazing volcano homework from the children…

Year 1 Seed Investigation

In year 1 we have been conducting a seed investigation. We have planted 3 different bean seeds and are testing how well they will grow with varying access to light. Plant 1 – is growing tall, strong and healthy because it has lots of light on the window sill. Plant 2 – is growing tall,…

Foundation Detectives

By Jodie Williams | April 2, 2019

This morning the children arrived to find a mysterious crime scene in the classrooms. The children became detectives as they searched for clues and tried to discover what had happened! They found red ribbon, a red cloak, a basket, some fur, a scarf and necklace and the outline of an axe! They excitedly made predictions…

Polar Printing

By Jodie Williams | April 1, 2019

We have worked so hard this half term to develop our artistic skills. Some of us had never even heard of printing before so we studied Inuit style artwork before learning the techniques, practising using them, sketching and planning our own pieces and then creating motifs for our final prints. We are so impressed with…

Mother’s Day Breakfast

By Jodie Williams | April 1, 2019

We welcomed Mums, Nans and all female relatives to share breakfast with their child on Friday morning in aid of Mother’s Day. It was fabulous to see so many family members take the time out of their busy days to share this special moment with their children. We hope you all had a lovely Mothering…

Anyone for juggling?

By Jodie Williams | March 26, 2019

This term we have been learning all about Growth Mindset, resilience and that failing is OK because it is a great chance to learn and keep trying. As teachers, we fail at stuff all the time! We want to inspire and encourage children to keep going when things get tough, to keep learning, to aspire…

Lunchtime resilience inspiration

By Jodie Williams | March 25, 2019

A couple of the well-being leaders set out on a mission to remind children to never give up and to believe in themselves. We added some quotes to lunchboxes as a little surprise for all those having a packed lunch today. Adding little notes and pictures is a great way to remind children that they…
