Year 5 Just So Stories

The Children in Year 5 have been  working on their own versions of Rudyard Kipling’s ‘Just So Stories.’ Rudyard Kipling told his children gloriously fanciful tales of how things in the world came to be as they are. Have a look at some of the children’s spin on Kipling’s tales…

Singapore Maths in Year 3!

There have been some changes in Year 3, around how the children are taught and learn in Maths,Singapore Maths has been introduced.

This new method enables children to explore topics in greater depth, to acquire a ‘Mastery’ of the subject. The children use concise mathematical graphics and resources to help build a concrete understanding which they can translate into their own words . Learning is sequential, so children’s skills are always being revisited and built up on, giving the  opportunity for accelerated learning !

It’s going to be an exciting year for Maths in Year 3!

Road Dahl Day

Well done to all the children who had great fun celebrating Roald Dahl Day! The playground looked full of sunshine with the children wearing bright, yellow clothes to mark the fact that yellow was Roald Dahl’s favourite colour.

Some of the exciting creative activities were designing our own amazing Willy Wonka style chocolate factories, and creating our own ingenious medicines just like George from George’s Marvellous Medicine!
