Spring term highlights.
Our school maths week was fun and informative for everyone. We also enjoyed watching videos of the classic poem, The Highwayman, and recording our own updated version.
World Book day was great fun and helped us to raise money to help feed the children in our link school - St. Peter's where the drought meant that the crops had failed.
SATS revision kept us all busy including singing and dancing along to Fiddler on the Roof to help us remember the subjunctive form!
A modern-day version written by Mrs Crowe and performed by Falcon Class.
We travelled to Street Baptist Church with Baltonsborough school to find out the true meaning of Easter.
World book day fun.
As part of our whole school maths week, we worked in teams to make times table videos and presentations about fractions and decimals.
Looking back over the Autumn Term, highlights and developments in teaching have included:
- Roald Dahl week.
- Mastery maths approaches and teaching strategies.
- Science and history presentations devised by the children, extending both their subject knowledge and team-working skills.
- Traditional Tales fortnight.
- Workshops with Joffre White a visiting author.
- Outdoor learning opportunities.
Children from all classes worked together to make clay models of Roald Dahl characters.
The children worked in groups to prepare and present presentations about earth and beyond. All I can say is watch out Professor Brian Cox.
