Aldi Stickers - We’ve Done It!

Thursday, 31 October 2019

A massive thank you to all children, parents, families and staff members who have been collecting Aldi sports stickers on our behalf. As you can see from the images below we have completed the sticker challenge with a week to spare!

As a result, we will receive a collection of sports equipment from Aldi’s and be entered into the national prize draw with a chance of being one of the schools awarded £20,000 to spend on additional sports equipment... so, keep your fingers crossed!

Once again, we have shown what we can achieve as a community when we work together - fantastic effort!

Year 4 - Editors

Tuesday, 29 October 2019

In literacy lessons in year 4, we have started our half term learning how to edit and improve a piece of writing. This is a really important skill for the children to learn so that they can produce fantastic published pieces of writing.

While we were editing and improving our work, we focussed on spellings, punctuation used, grammar, choice of vocabulary and overall structure of the text.

Frankie F (4W) - ‘if you edit and improve your writing then it is going to make your writing even more exciting and powerful for the reader!’

2A - Maths of the day

Friday, 18 October 2019

Today was a very exciting day in 2A as we took our learning outside and into different areas of the school. We played different maths games to increase our number bond knowledge and we also practised recalling our multiplication facts.
