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.

Fairytale castle

After half term our new topic will be ‘Twisted Tales’. The children voted for the new role play area and the winner was a fairytale castle. The children were given a half term challenge and Ms Schofield has been busy creating as well – it all started with a very large cardboard box. Looking forward to seeing all of your creations next week. 

Dinosaur workshop 

Ash class were very excited on Thursday during the dinosaur workshop. They got to meet both a baby and juvenile T-Rex. Check out Learning Journals after half term to see if your child was brave enough to get up close to the juvenile T-Rex. Ash class made fantastic palaeontologists as they carefully explored artefacts for carnivores, herbivores and other life.


In phonics last week we learned 4 new sounds (y, z,zz and qu) these are in the black box to practise at home. Thank you to the parents who attended our phonics workshop. We are always here to help if you need any advice on how to help you child at home with reading and writing.

Rapid Fire 6Ts and Hockey House Event!

Today, we had our second house event of the year; rapid fire 6Ts for Y3/and hockey for Y5/6. A massive thank you to all the Y6 children who helped break up the ice patches and set up the equipment. An even bigger thank you to the referees who, as usual, did an amazing job at making sure all children were involved and kept a fair score.

We managed to have two games each, I will announce the winners in Talent Assembly tomorrow and present the winning house with their certificate.
