Well done to Xarles this week, who has been applying his times tables knowledge to calculate equivalent fractions. Throughout the week he has grown in confidence with identifying and comparing fractions and more importantly he has been able to explain his workings out as well!

In addition to this, Class 12 have been working incredibly hard this week, writing an ending to the story we’ve learning about in literacy called ‘Flood’. Not only has Tallulah used such a fantastic range of different techniques including adverbial phrases; parenthesis using brackets, commas and dashes; semi colons for complex lists but she managed to maintain neat, joined handwriting throughout. Brilliant job!


Class 12’s stars!

We have so many stars in Class 12, that I simply can’t keep up! We have been celebrating fantastic Maths work from Oliver, Anya and Freya over the past few weeks. They have been identifying and comparing fractions; including equivalent fractions and finding common denominators in order to compare them.

As well as this, we have to say a massive well done to Areefa, Keira and Alex who have produced outstanding joined up handwriting. The fluency and speed that they are able to write at, allows them to focus more on the content they are writing, which is noticeable in the high quality of work that they have produced. Congratulations to all of our worthy winners!!

How are rivers formed?

Today Class 12 took part in a drama day combined with being geographers. They found clues and a letter in the emporium from the elderly lady who they had met previously. She wanted to find out about how rivers are formed and asked for the children’s help.

Each child had a role in their group when researching their part of the river formation. This included a Head Geographer, a Recorder, a Lexicographer, a Researcher and a Time Keeper. Each group were given a part of the river formation to research:







The children then presented to the rest of the group the information that they had found out. To end their exciting adventure, the children wrote an explanation of the river formation for a display.

Last week we had a wonderful time designing rockets with our mums and nans, customised with personal messages telling them why they were so special to us. Thank you to all the parents who were able to join us, and for making fantastic memories with us! For those who were unable to make the event, here are some of the photos for you to enjoy! Happy mothers Day!

Making it rain in Class 12!

This week marks science week, so in Class 12 we performed an experiment which allowed us to make it rain indoors.

For our experiment we used:

  • A glass jar- which represented Earth.
  • Hot water- which represented our planet’s water being heated by the sun.
  • A plate- which represented where clouds are formed.
  • Ice cubes- which represents the cold air higher up in the atmosphere.

We began by putting ice cubes on the plate. Then approximately 3cm of hot water was poured into our glass jars. Next we covered the jar with the plate which was holding the ice cubes on top. Finally we made our observations, drew diagrams and a rote scientific explanations for what we were seeing using vocabulary such as: evaporation, condensation, precipitation and water vapour.

Look at Freya’s fantastic scientific recordings of our investigation, well done!


Here’s us all hard at work,we’ll make fantastic scientists!


World Book Day!

Last week, we had World Book Day. So to celebrate such an event, Miss Carter and her Book Club children shared their books with the school. To excite us about our reading we also discussed about the different people we can share our books with and where we might want to share our stories. We even played a funny game where we had to choose silly places and people/animals we could share our books with beginning with a letter chosen at random from a page in our books.

As well as this, the children have been doing a sponsored read so instead of dressing up, they have been reading for sponsors. In school we also have a class reader book called ‘Journey to the River Sea’, which we used to inspire our door display! We designed and made it ourselves!


Equivalent fractions

Last week in Year 5, we have been exploring, investigating and exploring equivalent fractions. The children have done a fantastic job at noticing that what ever we do to the numerator (the number at the top of the fraction), we must do the same to the denominator (the number at the bottom of the fraction), whether it is being multiplied or divided.

We even began to use these skills to compare fractions that had different denominators. The hardest part was recognising what common denominator all the fractions could be converted into. Once we had done that we could then see which was the largest and which was the smallest. Great job class 12!


Here Alex has shown us how to identify how to identify equivalent fractions by looking at the numerator and denominator.


Here Ayesha has identified fractions which are equivalent using a pictorial representation.


Here Tallulah has used her knowledge of equivalent fractions to show 3 quarters using equivalent fractions to help her do so.

Year 5’s Raging Rivers Sparkling Start!

Today we became residents of a village which had a wonderful river running through it. Through drama techniques, we explored the activities that we could do by the river, as well as the important role of the river from transporting goods and people, to generating electricity using water wheels. It was fantastic to see how happy the river made the villagers and how respectful they were towards such a treasured and vital feature of the village. However, one day… everything changed!

The villagers woke up to find that their beautifully preserved river was littered with rubbish. Who could have done such a thing?!

With the help of The Wise One, we solved clues that took us to the top of the mountain where the source of our village’s river came from. On the way we met an old lady in a house who it turns out, had been disposing of her rubbish in the stream near her house; and although this meant that she was not surrounded by her rubbish anymore, it had flowed downstream to the village, destroying our river instead!

Using our persuasive language, we kindly wrote a letter to the old lady informing her of what she was doing to our beloved river; explaining to her the effects of her actions; and suggesting ways of dealing with this important issue.

Celebrating Mental Health Awareness Day!

Today we learnt that our mental health is just as important as our physical health, so we celebrated such an important day with our Year 2 buddies. It was lovely to see all the children’s faces filled with joy as we had a Bubblethon this afternoon, what a fantastic way to end our half term!

Now enjoy your well deserved rest, Class 12. Be proud of all the fantastic achievements you have had this term and I look forward to seeing you continue to achieve your goals after half term!

Karate taster sessions!

Yesterday Class 12 had a karate taster session where we learnt that karate lessons start with us having our hands together and bowing to show respect. As part of the session, we had to imagine that we were holding a icecream, which we were not allowed to drop! This reminded us of where to keep our hands to protect our faces. We were also inspired to be the best we possibly can be and that if we want to be the best, we have to be prepared to practise and work hard for it!
