Pizza Friday

This week the children have been writing instructions on how to make pizzas and on Friday morning they enjoyed making them!

After lunch they then enjoyed eating them (The girls chose to take theirs home!)


Art Week Day 2

This morning, some of the group headed outside to make some of their very own Andy Goldsworthy pieces of Art based on ‘Forgiveness’.

They then returned to class to make their forgiveness hearts, they’re going to look fantastic once they’re finished!



Art Week Day 1

Art Week has arrived!

This year the children have been arranged slightly differently, with each year group being split across 6 classes. Each ‘new’ class has been given a Christian Value that makes our school a wonderful place to be. These include : Trust, Courage, Respect, Kindness, Truthfulness and Forgiveness. To follow what the children in different groups are doing please check out the other class blogs.

On Monday the children working in Maple Class were introduced to their Christian Value of ‘Forgiveness’. They started the day with an hour dance workshop with Cheryl from Marlborough Dance which will be performed Friday afternoon. On returning to class, they thought about what ‘Forgiveness’ meant to them before making their own forgiving hands.

They also made some bunting using a range of buttons and ribbons.

Wonderful walk for Ascension Day

Yesterday Maple Class joined the rest of the school on their wonderful (but hot) walk up to Woodborough Hill. Once arrived the children listened to Reverend Larkey before tucking eagerly into their packed lunches.

Tag, hide and seek and other games followed before the descent back down and back to school. Not one child in Maple Class moaned that their legs hurt so well done to you all!


Canal Art

The children have enjoyed designing their own signs for a canal barge which will be on display shortly just outside Maple Class. They chose their names carefully and worked really hard on the lettering, making it 3D. They have a few final touches to add before they go on show.

The Dogs Trust- Evolution and Adaptation

This afternoon, Maple class enjoyed their workshop with Emily and Buster  from The Dogs Trust.

We enjoyed finding out about how dogs have evolved over the years and how important it is to think carefully before getting a dog as a pet. Mrs Needham was impressed with our listening skills and we asked some good questions.


Busy, busy, busy!

Since the start of this term we have been very busy ; starting our Canals topic and looking at life for the navvies, practising our throwing , catching and batting skills in PE and also revising lots of maths reading for our assessments.


Before we were let loose with a cricket bat, Mrs Needham asked us to demonstrate our throwing and catching skills. We played some fun games whilst doing this!

Mrs Needham was very impressed with our hand-eye coordination when we were given a cricket bat- 99% managed to hit the ball first time!


We enjoyed using rulers and metre sticks in our maths lesson to measure objects around the room- it had bee a little while since we had looked at measures but we got there in the end.


The Narrowboat signs are coming along nicely and we are looking forward to sharing these on a display just outside the classroom- watch this space!
