This year, the children (and parents) made an incredible effort with an amazing array of costumes. We held a’Book in a Jar’ competition. The entries were so imaginative, and a child from each class won a book token. All week ‘Shelfies’ had been displayed around school (photographs of members of staff’s bookshelves), and the children had to guess who they belonged to. We revealed the owners in assembly. A great day celebrating the joy of books.
As part of our topic all about Mountains we visited ‘We the curious’ and learnt all about the water cycle.
We all enjoyed playing in the snow. Some of us attempted to make a snowman and a snow angel whilst others had fun throwing snowballs.

Myself and Mr Wardle are finding it hard to believe that we are now in Term 5.
Last week your children should have come home with a topic coverage sheet outlining what we will be learning this term as well as homework ideas for 1066.
Please ask you child to collect one from the classroom if they have lost theirs.
Quartz Class Mountain Exhibition
28 March 2018
I would like to say a huge well done to all the children in Quartz class for their amazing mountain exhibition yesterday afternoon. Thank you to all those that were able to come along. The children showed just how much they have learnt about mountains over the last couple of terms. The winning mountain experience team went to both group 7 and group 8.

We were all very excited on Monday afternoon as we received some very important mail.
A while ago, you may remember that as a class we had spent some time learning all about David Walliams, reading his books and writing letters to him.
Well on Monday we received a reply from David Walliams. Your child should have brought a letter and signed photo home for you to see.
Have a look at what he said.

Today, we all had a great time baking gluten free cupcakes.
In Quartz class we are rewarded a marble at the end of the day for a range of things including: good behaviour, being kind, great work and more.
During the beginning of the term, we reached the first reward in our marble jar and the children chose to have a baking day.
Just look how much fun we had!!
Quartz Class Achievements
06 February 2018
Just look at how many children in Quartz class have achieved a certificate in our 99 club this week.
There are also lots of children who have progressed in their score every week this term.
Well done!! I am so proud at how well the children are doing with their 99 club scores.
Remember of the half term to complete your MyMaths homework and also work on your times tables with TTRockstars.
'We the curious' trip to Bristol
06 February 2018
Last week we had a wonderful time visiting ‘we the curious’ as part of our topic on Mountains.
The children enjoyed learning all about the water cycle and hearing how important mountains are in this process.
We all watched in amazement as Mike showed us an experiment with dry ice, showing us how clouds are formed.
After our session on the water cycle, we all got to explore the rest of ‘we the curious’ which the children really enjoyed.
All in all it was a great day!!
05 January 2018
We hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas break.
This term our topic is called ‘Misty Mountain Sierra’. I will be handing out homework sheets to the children next week. The expectation is that the children complete one piece of homework every other week.
The children will also be given their usual spellings to learn. We have a spelling test every Tuesday morning. The children should have their spelling books in school on this day.
Don’t forget to read with your children as much as you can during the week and write a comment in their reading record book. Mrs Ward checks for signatures every Monday morning and moves the children along on our reading reward track. Mrs Ward also signs library books in and out on Wednesday mornings.
A celebration!! The children have achieved Reward One on their marble jar rewards. The children have chosen to have a ‘baking day’ as their reward.
Fun in the snow!!
12 December 2017
We were all excited to wake up on Sunday morning to snow!! Monday, many of us braved the conditions and made it into school. There was still lots of learning to take place, however; Mrs Barrett was very kind and allowed us some time to enjoy the snow. Just have a look at our picture. Miss Baillie even attempted to make a snowman!!
