History topic finale – dress as a real life hero

Posted on Thursday 01 April 2021 by Mrs Latham

We had a fabulous day dressing as real life heroes. Our history topic this half term has focused on ‘Historic Heroes’ – Nelson Mandela and Leonora Cohen – and how their actions changed things.  Can your child tell you what they did?

I came as a nurse because they help to make people better.

I came as a Covid vaccine developer because they have helped to keep us safe.

I came as a firefighter because they help to keep us safe.

I came as a soldier because they protect us.

Living and learning – rights and responsibilities

Posted on Thursday 25 March 2021 by Mrs Latham

This week’s living and learning lessons we have been talking about rights and the responsibilities that come with them.

Encouraging children to be responsible and increase their independence is a important.

We matched some rights with the responsibilities that go with them.

Exciting English

Posted on Thursday 25 March 2021 by Mr Gathercole

This half term,  we’ve worked incredibly hard in our Reading and Writing lessons, having lots of fun along the way.


Our class novel has been Zog and the Flying Doctors by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, the sequel to Zog.


Films of both books are currently available on BBC iPlayer. Click on the above links.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading both stories, making lots of predictions and inferences.


Through our weekly RIC lessons, we’ve improved at fact retrievalinference and understood authors’ choices.


Each week, there has also been a new fluency text where we’ve practised the act of reading. This week we’ve been reading an exciting text about great white sharks. Texts about plants and Leonora Cohen have helped us with our Science and History learning too.



In our Writing lessons, everyone has been trying their very best with their handwriting and spelling. We’ve also had a strong focus on must dos such as capital letters and full stops.


Our writing about Zog and his friends has not only been fun to write, but fun to read as well. We’ve been editing mistakes and making improvements along the way, giving us all a great sense of pride in our learning.


We may not get everything perfect right away but we’re all reflective and resilient learners. Being reflective and resilient are two of our 8Rs for learning.

How many can your child remember?
