Well done to our reading stars this week!

We have been busy in the garden. It took all 30 of us to weed the plot! Then we added manure and lots of it! Finally we planted tomatoes, courgette, leeks and beetroot. Along the way we looked at the parts of the plants and what their functions are. We have discussed pollination and seed dispersal and will continue to look at the lifecycle of plants over the next few weeks. For now we are busy watering.....and waiting......

We dissected flowers to identify each part and it’s function.

Science Day!

We investigated air resistance, designing and testing parachutes.

All children in Meerkats have been registered with Times Tables Rock Stars and we had a go at the program today. Homework this week is to log onto your account and practise in the studio to get an average speed baseline.

On Friday 20th October we had some First Aid Training.

The statutory spellings for Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 have been sent home. Each week we will ask you to learn a selection of these words. The entire lists can be found below.

This week we looked at strategies to support learning tricky spellings at home. Here are the some of the ways that might help you.
