The Alchemist’s Potion

We had a special delivery in year 5 this week! The Alchemist left us potion to try and separate. It contained shingle from the Silver Shingle Beach, sand from the Rainbow Dunes and salt from the Windy Sea.

We discovered that we needed to sieve, filter and evaporate our solution so we could separate the different parts.

Fabulous creations in Nursery

In Nursery the children are becoming more independent.  They use their imagination.  They are able to choose the resources they need and use tools and equipment by themselves.  They ask for help if they need it.  Look at some of the wonderful things they have made this week.


Anyone for an ice-cream?



A super submarine!


A wonderful wand!


A beautiful butterfly!


During R E this week Year6  have been  debating   whether  Christianity is still a strong religion 2000 years after Jesus was on the Earth.

The children debated as class and then wrote their own personal   point of  view backing  it up with facts.

Mim said ‘ I feel that Christianity is a strong religion because many people even today still believe in Jesus.

Kacy  said ‘ In my opinion I think that Christianity  is still a strong religion because there are many Church  Schools and  lots of Christians in the U.K

Malaz said ‘In my opinion Christianity is still a strong religion because many people still worship Jesus around the world today.

The children enjoyed this debate and there were many good points of view raised.


Reception’s dancing!

This week, the children wanted to show their styles of dancing. We listened to a range of music and thought about how we can dance and move in different ways. We explored how fast and slow the music was to see if we needed to move quickly or slowly. We also danced outside using the ribbons.

Exploring Materials!

In Year 1, we have been exploring the best material to make an umbrella for our friend Ted. We all made predictions then performed an investigation. We explored the following materials;  foil, felt, tissue paper and plastic. We used our scientific skills to observe closely to the change of the material once water was dripped onto the material. We found out that plastic and foil were both waterproof, however later found out that foil can be easily ripped, therefore not the best material for an umbrella.

We are looking forward to making our plastic umbrella to keep Ted dry!

It’s not all straight cut in Year 5

In Year 5 some of us have been learning about different types of angles and how to measure them.  It was hard at first to use a protractor accurately, but once we mastered the protractor slide it became easier.  We also learnt the differences between acute, obtuse and reflex angles.  Why not ask your child about the different types of angles?


Finally we have also been learning about the total number of angles on a straight line, angles in a triangle and quadrilateral and angles around a point.  Why not ask you child to explain them?


Why not have a look at some of our work



30 Tales of Fear

This week Year 3 have been working hard to plan, tell and write their own tales of fear.  Everyone shared their ideas of possible settings for our stories and also fears. Lots of time was spent with a partner in drawing as story map and rehearsing  ideas for each of the five parts of the story.  Also, each pair listened to and made changes to their stories following peer assessment. Finishing the week on the writing of individual stories and using a checklist to make sure each paragraph had a range of  sentences and punctuation.

Miss Mcleod and myself have been astounded with the quality of writing this week. We are very proud of each and every child in Year 3. Mo Farah YOU are STAR WRITER this week 🙂

Ask your child to tell their tale of fear. Can you guess what the fear is?

Another fun filled week in Reception!

This week Reception have looked at the story ‘Dear Zoo’, The children made actions to go with the story and can retell the story really well. We explored the different zoo animals and found out information from books. This week some children made puppets to act out their own stories with – lots of children made fairies and told great fairy stories! We have also been preparing for Mother’s Day. We made cards and did a special assembly for them. Thank you for all the mom’s that attended today. We hope you enjoyed it.

Nursery week beginning 20th March

This week in Nursery we have been thinking about our mommys in preparation for Mother’s Day on Sunday.

The children made some beautiful cards using potato prints.  All the children had a go at writing their name.  I am very proud of how well they did.

Cross Curricular science

Yesterday ,Year 6  finished their  3d model of the heart. The children had to paint and add detail to the hearts to make realistic representations.  Why don’t you ask your child to discuss their science and explain to you the functions of certain parts of this very important organ?
