Well done to all of the houses as it was a very close competition. Everybody should be proud of their house.
Recently, our school has been starting some ideas and we will tell you all about them…
Firstly, we have started Walk The World where every student in our school walks a mile per day. Every lap around the school is half a mile so we are planning to, everyday, walk two laps or more! At the end of the week, in assembly, we will get to see how far we have walked around the world.
We have also started a Mathletics Club where children who need assistance in maths will go to a meet-up area and practice Mathletics! During a lunchtime we can get support on maths! What a great and fun idea! Not only all of this but every question you answer in this club will go towards Mathlete of The Week, when in each class we announce the child who got the most percent of questions correct for that week.
Our school is coming up with amazing plans for us and in the future everyone hopes we will make more! Thank You everyone who takes part in these activities!
As many already know this week is SATs week. All of the year 6 children have been working hard to Complete the tests
Well done to all children who did these hard frustrating tests.
On Monday was a Reading Paper. This test was really difficult but everyone tried their very best! There were three texts that we had to read and then answer questions about them.
The next day, Tuesday, there was a Spelling and Grammar Paper. We had to answer questions to test our knowledge on Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. It was quite a challenge!
Then on Wednesday was an Arithmetic Test. We had to answer a range of calculations. We also had a Reasoning Paper; we had to answer complex, worded questions in 40 minutes.
Finally, tomorrow will be our final paper – another Reasoning Paper. It will be very similar to the last one with we suspect some topics not yet included.
Well done to all the year 6 children!

Well done to all of the team.

On Thursday 28th of January, year 2 had their interhouse day . The scores were extremely close with the winning score and second place only 2 points away . Although an amazing effort from everyone the winning team was … Red (Dacre) with an astonishing 70 points, Green (Leonard) with 68, yellow (Warrene) 63 and blue (Barrett) with 59.
Over the past weeks, year 2 have been studying African music. They have learnt to drum…AFRICAN STYLE! They also made cool masks, which stood out from the class! Miss Gilbert said, “The children had lots of fun and would do it again!”. She added, “I would recommend it to other teachers.” Fun was had by all the children and teachers in year 2.
