TTRS tournament winners (18 June 2021)

Posted on Friday 18 June 2021 by Mr Gathercole

What a close contest it has been this week in the Times Table Rock Stars battle!

This week’s winners are… 3,4E!

You guys have been crowned champions for the FIFTH (you’ve read that) week in a row. You’re the first class ever to reach that milestone.

5,6 – The TTRS guitar was almost yours. Maybe with an extra 5 minutes playing before/after school will make all the difference.

I’m convinced the other classes are going to up their game next week to stop it becoming a sixth week on top for 3,4E…

NumBotters and TTRS of the week

Posted on Friday 18 June 2021 by Mr Gathercole

We’ve had another week of great number bonds and times tables learning. Whilst everyone has impressed us, not everyone can make it into the hall of fame in a single week.

We’ve managed to narrow it down to these nine superstars. Well done! Be sure to ask your child to show you their certificate, proof of entry into the NB and TTRS Hall of Fame.

Books, Glorious Books

Posted on Tuesday 15 June 2021 by Mrs Lake

We are very lucky at our school to have a library full of wonderful books to borrow and enjoy. Over the past few weeks, we have been re-stocking our library with some lovely new books. We now have 300 new books on the shelves in the library. Every child has a library session each week where they can select any book they want to borrow and enjoy at home. Happy reading!

Design & Technology

Posted on Tuesday 15 June 2021 by Mr Catherall

In our topic lessons this half-term, we’ll be learning all about design and technology. We’ll follow the process that people working in DT complete in the real world: we’ll research and design our product, we’ll make our product and, finally, we’ll evaluate it.

We’ll making a small prototype of a go-kart using tech card – so we’ll get plenty of opportunities to be creative and practical.

Help at home by asking your child what they’ve been learning about school. Encourage them to use the vocabulary they’ve learnt, too (shown in the below table).

Super Scientists!

This half-term, in our science lessons, we’re studying biology. We’ll be learning all about animals (including humans) with a specific focus on teeth and eating.

Help at home by regularly asking your child what they’ve learnt in their science lessons recently. When discussing their learning, encourage your child to use the correct scientific vocabulary. The below table shows you what words we’ll be using alongside the definition we’ll be using in class.

canine A pointy tooth used for gripping food.
incisor A flat, sharp-edged tooth in the front of the mouth that’s used for cutting and tearing food.
molar A tooth used for grinding food at the back of the mouth.
enamel The hard covering of the tooth.
digestion The process of breaking down food.
energy Used to help us move, grow and repair our body.
stomach A bag of muscle used in the first part of digestion.
oesophagus The scientific name for the food pipe.

We don’t like cricket…we love it!

We have Yorkshire Cricket coach, Jamie Sykes, coming into school over the next half term. All classes from Year 1 to Year 6 will receive some cricket coaching over the next 6 weeks. He set some very important ‘homework’…to watch some cricket, if you can! #chancetoshine #yorkshirecricket
