  • Spring Spelling Bee Words

    Published 08/01/18, by Lucy Hazlewood

    It is another new term and the children are already excited to compete in the next spelling bee.  We have split the list of 100 into two lists of 50 which together will be tested at the end of the Spring term.  Ten of the words from the Spelling Bee will be sent out as Spelling Homework and will be tested weekly in class.  We have closely linked the spelling homework and spelling bee words to the spelling we are learning in class so the children's  learning will be embedded.

  • Volcano Exhibition

    Published 24/11/17, by Lucy Hazlewood

    What a superb way to end the week!  Year 4 children have put so much hard work into their homework projects on volcanoes and the result was exciting, creative, informative and (in some cases) tasty.  We had volcanoes with real fireworks, cake volcanoes, some with air blowers inside, stop animations, booklets, diaries and many other wonderful ideas.  There was such as buzz as all of the parents and relatives saw all of the wonderful and varied creations.  Thank you to all the children for their many hours of hard work and for thinking outside the box.
