World Book Day

Well done to all the children and Parents for making such a wonderful effort during World Book Day. The costumes were all fantastic and everyone enjoyed seeing the creativity and range of ideas for their favourite story characters.  The children certainly benefited from experiencing a mix of reading activities such as reading for pleasure, book making, word searches, designing book covers and reading challenges throughout the day

Reading is such an important skill and it is great to be able to associate fun learning with the whole school community.

Over the past week, the whole school has been taking part in a reading sponsored task. the money raised from this will help to replenish books in our library.



Happy New Year 

Welcome back to the new term, I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas and New Year Break and that you will be coming back refreshed and ready for lots of exciting new events and plans for 2019.

This term, class 2 are going to be researching and studying The Anglo Saxons and the class will be able to find out all about this ancient culture and the impact they had on Britain.

Just as a quick summary, our topic this term will be creative as usual and the Anglo Saxons will be used where possible to motivate and stimulate pupils, it will be linked to Art, DT, and religion as well as other areas such as: in literature, we will study legends and styles of ancient language partly through a character named Beowulf. There will be another linked focus on Cinquain and Kenning poetry. All the comprehension- sentences, spelling and whole class guided reading will be part of the other literacy activities.

In maths, it will be consolidating number- in all four operations by deepening understanding and mastering new concepts, We will incorporate a focus on fractions, decimals and percent. We will also be looking at problem solving and recording more accurately and mathematically, as well as developing reasoning skills and talking for maths; and this will be evidenced by using maths in many contexts such as shape- time and measures contexts.

I am really looking forward to a fresh start and lots of new opportunities.

Keep checking for any additional information that will be added in the next week. Booster club will take place on Mondays for year 5 and 6 in preparation for the SAT's tests.

Clay Poppy Project

Clay Poppy Project 1
Clay Poppy Project 2
The children have had lots of fun and creativity making their own poppy designs using clay. The whole school have been working on the project for a few weeks and it has been great to find out about the different poppy representations.
The Juniors had a wonderful day at Morwellham Heritage Site near Tavistock. They went back in time and experienced rope making and  dressing up in Victorian costumes.  The other activities included attending a Victorian School and learning how to do the four 'R'S as well as going into a copper mine. The day was a fun and enjoyable and made history come alive.
