Spring Term

Thank you for all your hard work this term.  Have a well earned Easter break.  We look forward to seeing you back in school on 19th April.



The children have had a fantastic Geography day.  We have looked at local maps and compared them to ones from the 1950s and 1890s; we have read and plotted coordinates and drawn our own treasure maps.  Have a look at the slideshow below to see what we have got up to:

Week beginning 29th March 2021

We have had a great week applying our knowledge of how circuits are constructed to design and make a steady hand game incorporating an electrical cicruit for a young child to play.  Some of the products can be be seen on the slideshow below.  We were very impressed with the designs.  The children enjoyed testing them out when they had finished!

If your child is self isolating, please use the resources on this online learning page to access the same learning we will be doing in school. Please only complete this work if you are not in school.  

For your afternoon Topic lessons, please look at the timetable below so you know which lesson your class is doing each day. Please do the correct lesson for your class each day.
