This half term has flown by – 5 weeks!

We are now half way through the academic year and have some much to celebrate.

Our computing suite is now up and running and the children have been using this space to really enhance their learning.

All of our projects are well underway – in Y4 the children have been thinking about life in Viking times, considering how life was very much self sufficient.

Y5 have been learning about area and perimeter – lots of space needed to really get to grips with this.

In art, they have been looking at the human face and working incredibly hard on proportion.

Y3 have been working hard on their multiplication facts. 

Times Table Rockstars has really motivated some of our children.

Some of our Y5 and Y6 children went head to head with children at Swallownest Primary School in our very first ‘University Challenge’ style battle.

On this occasion, our team were victorious – watch this space for the second round coming after half term.
