  • When is PE?

    PE is every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, therefore it is reccomended children bring their kit on Monday and take it home every Thursday. The children must have the appropriate kit in order to participate and earrings must be removed or covered with plasters. Thank you. 

    Kit: Navy t-shirt, black shorts/joggers (without a logo), trainers for outside, plimsolls for inside.

  • Do the children get homework?

    The children will recieve their homework every Friday in their purple Homework book. This is to be returned the following Thursday. Homework will vary but will always involve weekly spellings and occasionally mathematics questions and an English activity too. 

W/C 4th September

The children have made an excellent start to the 23/24 academic year. So far this week, they have worked collaboratively during some team building exercises, developed their tracking and collecting skills in PE and have started to investigate the human body in Science. 

W/C 11th September

So far this week, the children have researched their artist of the term and discovered that our focussed piece of artwork, 'The Girl with a Pearl Earring' sold for $10.62 million. We are looking forward to practicing our drawing skills and recreating this artwork in Autumn Term. 

W/C 18th September

This week, we have learnt all about Harvest. As a school, we have been collecting food donations and have had a whole school assembly where we shared our knowledge about harvest and sang one of our favourite songs. 

The children have also enjoying reading for pleasure on a Friday morning in our new reading corner. 

W/C 25th September

Over the past couple of weeks, we have been learning about human teeth. Last week, we focussed on the different types and what their purpose was. This meant that on Friday we enjoyed creating our own models using marshmallows. 

W/C 2nd October

This week, the children have learnt about 'The Rockies' in North America. They completed a fact file all about the famous mountain range. 

The children have also researched about different types of bread from around the world. We are looking forward to trying them all in our next DT lesson before half term.

W/C 9th October

The children put their drawing skills to work this week in Art. They used mirrors and a range of shading techniques (stippling, scumbling and cross-hatching) to draw a self-portrait. 

W/C 16th October

So far this week the children have tried lots of different breads. These included Focaccia, Pitta, Bagels and Naan. They thoroughly enjoyed tasting them and had to describe their texture, appearance, smell and taste. Make sure to check out the photos to see some of our reactions - we enjoyed some more than others!


W/C 30th October

On Monday, the children enjoyed the spooky disco in celebration of Halloween and managed to scare Miss Cawkwell with their petrifying costumes. 

In mathematics, Year 3 have been flying through their 'Addition and Subtraction' unit and are confidently using the column method to solve larger sums. 

W/C 6th November

The children have used pastels to decorate a poppy, which will make up our Class wreath. This will be laid in our Rememberance Assembly on Friday. Check out the events page to see us laying our wreath. 

W/C 13th November

To raise awareness of Antibullying week, our PSHE lesson consisted of talking about our differences and then designing our very own pair of odd socks! 

In Art, we used our drawing techniques to add depth and detail to our recreation of 'The Girl with a Pearl Earring'.  

W/C 20th November

This week we have got in the festive spirit and attended the 'Christmas Fayre'.

Some children were also lucky enough to participate in a Dodgeball competition against other schools. 

W/C 27th November

Amazing Artwork! 

Look at our brilliant artwork, which we have been working on and developing during the Autumn term, based on our artist Johannes Vermeer and the painting Girl With A Pearl Earring.


W/C 4th December

In English, we have been using the Christmas advert 'Edgar the Dragon' as inspiration for writing. The children watched the advert and discussed each part of the story, discussing how Edgar would feel during each stage. Over the next week or so, the children in both Year 3 and 4 are going to write an apology letter to the Townspeople in first person. It is certainly helping us get into the festive spirit!

Christmas Play

The children have worked tirelessly practicing their lines, learning the songs and getting their costumes ready for our Christmas play, 'Who took all the loo roll?'.
