Maths (1)

Today the Year 3 children were using the Base 10 equipment to help them work out place value problems.


It's really lovely to see so many enthusiastic faces in Borrowers class this year. The children have settled into school beautifully and are very excited about our new topic.
Please find attached our first newsletter of the year along with the homework for this half term.

For our final term we are stepping back into the Victorian era and the start of the industrial revolution. The homework sheet is attached.

Please also see the attached newsletter for information and important dates.

All Done!

Thank you so much to our very kind parents (and Governor) for inviting the Year 6 pupils for milkshakes and treats to celebrate the end of their assessments. The sugar intake has definitely contributed to an afternoon filled with energy!

'SATS' Breakfast

A huge THANK YOU to the PTFA for supplying the Year 6 children with a fabulous breakfast each morning before their end of key stage assessments. It was much appreciated and helped settle any nerves.


Finishing off our first Power of Reading text, children were either 'the' varmint or one that had been left behind. Lots of questions needed answering. The children were surprised at how many activities were produced by a picture book. We're now putting together a display for the hall.

Our Allotment

We visited our allotment to make sure that our plants were growing. We weeded the beds and turned the soil before watering the vegetables. We were amazed to see that the radishes were already visible.
