What we've been doing this week

In PE we have been focussing on travelling across the apparatus with Miss Jarvis and using directional language with Miss Moughan. 


In English the children have written instructions on how to be the 'perfect Prince or Princess' using bossy verbs. The children came up with some very important ideas of how members of the Royal Family should behave!


In maths this week we have been recapping our knowledge of measurement. We begin the week looking at capacity and then length. We spent a lot of time thinking about how we could make sure our estimations were sensible by using our existing knowledge. 


After some class planning, the teams in Mission began their activities to help prepare for the Royal Wedding. Some children are designing and creating a palace for Meghan and Prince Harry to live in once they are married, a team have began making a royal crown for Meghan, another team have started planning a very royal honeymoon, the forth team are making some wedding wrapping paper using repeating patterns and a fifth team are creating wedding invitations! There is still lots of work to be done before the 'big day'!

Wow moments!

Summer 1 2018

Joe, Myla and Zachary completed their letters to persuade Meghan and Harry to go to their chosen place on their honeymoon. I think they would struggle to turn them down as they were so persuasive!

Macie and Jack made two amazing crown's for Meghan Markle in Mission Possible this week. Jack then went on to teach others how to make a medal for Prince Harry. 

Wow to Abigail, Eliza, Yuki, Isabella, Joe, Samuel and Thea for working so hard to understand how to carry the tens when answering column addition calculations. 

Peter explained to the class what glass was made out of and everyone was very impressed!

Alfie and Joseph have really impressed Miss Jarvis with their improved handwriting - practise at home has really helped them to improve!

Jessica has tried very hard to make sure her 'p' are the correct way round this week and I think she has finally cracked it!
