Science -flowers

Posted on Friday 02 April 2021 by Mrs McCormick

Today, our Science learning involved  exploring the part that flowers play in pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.

We watched a wonderful video   by artist Katy Scott of how flowers make new flowers. There were no words which made it all the more special.

The main points were:

  • The bees visit the flowers to gather nectar and pollen which they need for food. Some of the pollen gets moved from flower to flower.
  • Once the pollen has moved down the stigma into the ovary, the flower has been pollinated. Seed formation begins in the ovary.

We made the different parts from paper and put the structure together in groups.

Here are some pictures from the session.

Our final week before Easter may only have been four days, but we’ve still seen some very impressive times tables practice.

They’ve only gone and done it again!

Congratulations! The TTRS guitar will remain with you.

Lots of children ran for the Junior Leadership Team and made brilliant speeches. We set up the hall as a polling station with a ballot box and a confidential voting system.

What can we say other than WOW?


This week, the TTRS tournament has been as competitive as ever.


The winning class has doubled (yes, DOUBLED) the score of last week’s winners.


After a few wins in a row for 5,6M, we have new champions! I REPEAT – WE HAVE NEW CHAMPIONS!



Congratulations to everyone in 3,4E on your hard-fought win. We’re pleased to announce that tournament winners will each week be presented with the TTRS guitar!

Everyone is really upping their game at the moment and the results speak for themselves.


The latest tournament will end this Thursday, seeing as it is Good Friday this week.


All the best, one and all.

What another great week 3,4NV!

Today, we were really lucky to have a visit from Junior Jam so we could learn to play the Steel Pans and create some carnival music.

We all tried to learn the tune to ‘Under the Sea’ and some of us had the chance to perform this at the end of the session! We had great fun.

We have also continued to create the final versions of our carnival outfit designs. Have a look at this design.

Our certificate winners for the week are:

For great learning…

Zac – for excellent answers in reading.

For living and learning skills…

Leila – for always being ready to learn and for contributing ideas to class discussion.

For Sport and physical activity

Aurora – for fantastic tennis skills in PE.

Our TT Rockstar this week is Harry E!

Well done to everyone!

Mrs Wadsworth, Mr Gledhill and Mrs Richardson

Living and Learning: I understand that rights come with responsibilities

Posted on Friday 26 March 2021 by Mrs McCormick

This week, our Living and Living statement is – I understand that rights come with responsibilities. This follows on from the NSPCC Speak out. Stay safe assembly last week:
We all have the right to speak out and stay safe.
It’s a really important one for helping us to live in a respectful, responsible way. It can relate to lots of different aspects of life. For example, we have the right to play, and we have the responsibility to play safely and sensibly with our friends; we have the right to food, and the responsibility to make our own healthy choices.
The link between rights and responsibilities is the key part of this learning.
Here are some photos of our posters we made in our Year 3/4 sessions.
