In PE we have been doing gymnastics.  We are learning how to jump and land on 2 feet safely.  We chose how high we wanted to jump – it was scarier than we thought at first but after a little encouragement we all managed a jump from the height of our choice.  It was a fun lesson.


Nursery children have been learning about Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights. They have all made their own diva lamps which are used to signify the triumph of good over evil in the story of Rama and Sita. The children loved listening to the story of Prince Rama rescuing Sita from the evil king Ravana.

Diva lamps

Step 1 – we used clay to make the small lamps.

Step 2 – we painted the clay lamps.

Step 3 – we decorated the lamps with glitter and then varnished them.

Step 4 – we placed tea lights in the divas.


On Tuesday 13th November, Year 5 brought their bikes to school, as usual we did our normal work in the morning. Finally we finished our dinner. Then it was time for Bikeability.

First we had to have our bikes checked. Secondly, year 5 got into a big line and were given a number between 1 and 4 because there was going to be four groups. Next we happily got onto the roads in our groups. We did lots of things like U-turns, signals and going into Primary position from Secondary position.

The next day we did Bikeability all day, we did the same things!

Year 5 had lots of fun doing Bikeability, they cant wait to do it again next year!

United Utilities

Today, we had a visit from Janet from United Utilities.  We learnt about the water cycle, water safety, how much water we use and what we can do to save water. It was very fun and interactive.

We are going to record how much water we each use over a week and then we are going to compare our water usage with each other.

Year 4




To finish our geography learning off we have identified the scruffiest area in our school environment – right outside our classroom! We have cleared away some rubbish already and over the coming months we will decide how we can make this space better.


This week in English we have read The Tiger who came to tea by Judith Kerr.  We loved the story.  We have had a look at some of the sentences in the story and played around with the words to see how short we could make the sentence.  We found out the all sentences need a noun and a verb.  Great grammar work in year 1!
