Tanners Football Match

A huge well done to Tanners Football team who beat Abbots Langley School 4 – 2 in a thrilling game. The ball went up and down the pitch and many good shots saved by Luca, who was man of the match! 

Excellent displays of football from all the boys – Luca, Joe, Ben Ch, Ben Cr, Harry, Arthur, Connor and Dean. It was really enjoyable to watch. 

The corner before the spectacular 4th goal.

Amazing tackling!

A fab save by Luca!

Rapid fire 6Ts cricket!

Last Thursday, Y3/4 went to Rickmansworth school to play in the rapid fire 6Ts tournament. In our first game we were so super excited and eager to win we kept running into each other! However, we calmed down in the second game and scored many 4run points. Well done Tanners!! The game is similar to cricket but a lot faster.

There are 6 tees with tennis balls and Otto and Charlie hit them with perfection through the yellow cones. Super score!

Mia and Lily running as fast as they can to score more points.

After each pair had a turn at batting and had run between the stumps, it was our turn to field. We had an organised routine to collect balls,tees and spots.

We really enjoyed this tournament, well played to Otto, Chase, Charlie, Mia, Lily, Luke and Theo. We did really well to come 4th out of 8 teams. 

Elm class

We are still learning ways to find the difference as we have found it quite a challenge!! Here someone has counted out the 2 different groups,matched them, then counted those not matched, which are the difference!?

Researching animals

In English today Larch class started their research for their non chronological report. We used information sheets to find facts about the appearance of either a parrot, sloth, howler monkey or chameleon. We recorded these onto our mind maps to use for our reports. 


As part of our topic, ‘people who help us’, we had a visit from contstable Bearne. He told us all about his job as a police officer and read us a brilliant story about a detective dog. The children got to try on the different police hats and even look at some real handcuffs!
