Summer Term Updates

Week Commencing Monday 21st May 2018

This week we’ve been focusing on Science , doing lots of practical activities to do with our topic Sound. We made our own panpipes using straws, and worked together in pairs to make high and low pitched sounds. We also made string telephones to experiment how sound travels. We had so much fun being hands on with our topic and helped us gain a greater understanding of how sound works.


We also got hands on in D&T and used our tie dyed fabric to make juggling balls. We practiced our sewing and perfected out over-stiching to successfully sew and fill our juggling balls. They look fabulous if we do say so ourselves!!


Next half term we will be continuing our ‘Beyond the Magic Kingdom’ Topic, in which we will be focusing on the history of Leisure and Entertainment in the 20th Century. This will include an exciting trip to Drayton Manor :) 

Week Commencing Monday 23th April 2018

The rain didn’t stop play this week for the Marvellous Matildas. Mansfield Town joined us on Tuesday afternoon but the weather meant we had to take the session inside. Nevertheless, we still had so much fun and learnt some news skills. 



This week in English we have continued to focus on Non-Chronological reports. We have been working towards producing reports about alligators and crocodiles. So far we have chosen headings and sub-headings, we’ve also used the sub-headings to research (on the iPads) the information we will use in our reports. We will continue our reports next week by using our research to write the report. Look out for our finished pieces next week! 




Week Commencing Monday 16th April 2018

A wonderful first week back after Easter for the Marvellous Matildas. We were joined on Tuesday by 10 chicken eggs, which are currently being incubated and are expected to hatch some time next week. We are enjoying keeping an eye on them and can’t wait to start seeing the baby chicks breaking out of their eggs.


In maths we’ve done lots more times table practice, we’ve even been competing against each other to see who can get the most correct answers in 60 seconds. 


We also had so much fun at our Mansfield Town After School Club. See our action picture of the mini tournament that took place on the MUGA.
