Half term challenge 

Over half term Ash class were challenged to create a prop or resource using inspiration from fairy tales and traditional stories. The children have proudly spoken about their creations and all home learning is now being used in the Role Play, Small World or Maths area. 

Heavier or lighter?

Ash class have enjoyed exploring weight in maths this week. They have used heavier and lighter to describe objects. Today they were human scales using two bags for life and objects from around the classroom. Wonderful to hear the children talking sentences to compare objects, for example, “the globe is heavier than the superhero.”

Fabulous Y6 Football Tournament

On Tuesday, 8 members of the school football team had a fantastic opportunity to attend a Watford football club primary stars tournament. The team played amazing football and were the team in our group to beat. Unfortunately St Albert the Great were stronger and they went through to the semi finals, then the final which they then won. Mrs Chapman, Mr Creamer and I were very proud of their footballing skills and team work.

Keep Running Gingerbread Man!

To start off our new topic ‘Twisted Tales’ we have been reading a different version of the Gingerbread Man. It highlighted how important it is to keep fit and do exercise, so in P.E we did lots of different activities to get us moving! We then talked about how our bodies felt after we had done it.

Geography and Maths

In maths, we have been exploring the continent of North America. We have plotted coordinates on a four quadrant grid to make shapes and have explored the countries and cities inside the shape. We have considered their position in relation to other places using our knowledge of direction.
