Week Commencing 25th February 2019


Our first week back has been a busy one.


Maths - In maths this week we've been concentrating on addition and subtraction word problems. We've tackled them in lots of different ways: in pairs, with a partner and finally we had a go independently. We also drew bar models and used the maths resources to help us figure out the questions. We did lots of discussion and talked through any tricky questions.

We've also developed a love for Mully - Why not have a go at a question?


Mully is hiding behind the biggest multiple of     3

with out going past      73 

Which number is Mully hiding behind?


Week Commencing 11th February 2019


Our last week of the half term has been super fun filled.

Our favourite part was finishing off our D&T pizza project by making our very own pizzas.

In the morning we made the dough and gave it time to prove, before creating our bases in the afternoon and adding various toppings. We attempted to make lots of different base shapes, which included: love hearts, squares, circles and even a bunny (a lot more tricky than it sounds!)


In our last Premier Sports session we tried out Lacrosse which we absolutely loved. It was so lovely and sunny outside so we were able to go and play it out on the MUGA. 

Hopefully the sun stays out so we can spend more time outside next half-term when Mansfield Town return.

This week has been Mental Health Awareness Week, we have thought a lot about what makes us feel good both 'inside and out' and used this to create A-Z lists.

Our ideas included: Cuddles, baths, pets, our family and friends. 


We have also been recognising the achievements of individuals in the class who have shown motivation, determination and positive attitudes. 

Here are our award winners from the past  4 weeks.

This week we took time out of our busy schedule to do some reading for pleasure. We chose books from our reading corner and the library to read  to each other.


We really enjoyed sharing stories with each other. 

Week Commencing 21st January 2019


We've been working super hard in the Marvellous Matildas again this week.

- We continued learning to play the recorder and learnt how to plan 'B'. 


- In maths we have been adding money, we've been working on identifying the different coins and notes.

- We really enjoyed starting to create our animal themed non-chronological reports and we will continue to do so using the ICT suite next week.

We've had a super fun week in the Matildas learning some new skills.

In music Mrs Herriot gave us our first recorder lesson which we really enjoyed, even Mrs Herriot thought we did a fabulous job for the first time many of us had played a recorder. 


Premier Sports came in to teach Archery this week, which we loved! There are some real budding archers in the Marvellous Matildas. We really enjoyed trying something new and can't wait for non-contact boxing next week.


In French we've been learning all about our topic 'Ma Famille' and we've started to look at how to introduce members of the family using the question - Qui est-ce? ( Who's this?).


Stayed tuned for some photographs to show just how much fun we've been having!

Au revoir 

Week Commencing 7th January 2019

Well what an exciting first we back it has been. We’ve got in to the full swing of our new topic 'Pharaohs to Emperors’!

In Maths we have been focusing on learning all about Roman numerals. We made clocks, correctly placing the numerals up to XII (12). Our homework this week is all about Roman numerals too.
This week we began to think about the things we wanted to know about Ancient Roman, we used the iPads to research then copied up on answers in the computer suite, where we worked on our Word processing skills.
In Art we made Roman coins and painted them using metallic paint as well as starting to work on creating mosaics.
Thursday was 'Roman day’. Everyone looked absolutely fabulous in their Roman costumes. I can’t wait to see where the topic takes us next
