Larch class are beginning to learn how to add numbers together using column addition. Today we used diennes and place value cards to support our understanding as to how numbers can be placed in a grid. Here are some pictures of us doing our work.
We had lots interesting discussions and enjoyed acting out a scenario from two points of view.
This week in Maple Class saw the end of a project that was started at the beginning of term! This was the hugely successful Pop Art project led by Mrs Coe! As you can see the children have become dab hands at impersonating a certain Mr Warhol!

Since our topic this term is all about ‘people who help us’, we were very lucky to have a visit from some local firefighters. We got to learn all about the different equipment they use everyday and how they use it to save lives.
We even got to go inside the fire engine and experience what it must be like to be a firefighter racing to an emergency. Even Mrs Franks and Miss Watson got to have a turn!
As a final goodbye, the firefighters beeped the horn and flashed the sirens for us. It was so loud but really exciting too.
We can’t wait to meet more amazing ‘people who help us’ soon.
Well done to Harry, Jacob, Tinashe, Toby, Ben , Kyle and Zoe who go through to the spring term cross country final!
Mrs Burke has given this class many years of support and we wish her well in year 1!
We have been learning French greetings in Juniper Class!
This week Apple nursery have been reading Room on the Broom and making magic potions. We have used our water play to learn about when a container is full, empty or half-full and the children have enjoyed exploring and using this language when making their potions as part of our Abracadabra topic.
Year four have been learning about the legend of Beowulf and Grendel. The children have read the legend and drew their own images of the monster.
