Science week fun ! 

As this is science week we are going to be carrying out different investigations and challenges based around inventions and exploration. Our first challenge was called, Squashed tomatoes. We had to design and build a vehicle which would transport tomatoes safely down a slope. This was to recreate the challenges farmers in Nepal have. We had varying results but the children worked really well together and had fun. The real challenge comes tomorrow when we add the tomatoes! Here are a few of the practise runs...

A good test run

We are looking forward to showcasing some of our Ancient Egyptian work with you on Tuesday the 5th of December at 2:30pm. 


From this Wednesday, the 29th of November, your child will be issued with a spelling book, their weekly spellings will be stuck in each week to bring home and practice. Your child can use the page the spellings are on to practice, this could be: Writing sentences that contain that word. Using the look, say, cover, write, check method, or just simply practicing writing the words. I hope that this will help with the issue of lost spelling sheets.

How We Teach Reading


In Bumblebee class the children read a variety of selected texts in a guided group sessions with Mrs Baxter or Miss Puttock and individual readers are heard by an adult at various intervals throughout the term.


We expect the children to read at home every day, either with an adult or on their own and ask that their reading diary is signed by an adult to show that they have read.   The children are able to change their reading books whenever they have finished reading them.
