Happy half term! Half-way through our year and Year 1 learn all about shapes and halves with pizzas! It’s a newsletter of halves this week!
Not only is it a busy half term, but at the end of this week, we are also half way through the school year. We are delighted with the hard work the children have put into their lessons and staff are seeing the rewards of their efforts too as classes all make strong progress in their learning. This week all our staff have spent time analysing children’s half yearly results and the exceptional hard work from staff and pupils has seen strong results. Well done to all the boys and girls in school!
Our year 3 and 4 gymnasts competed at an inter school gymnastic competition this week and did exceptionally well – with the competition being very strong. They were placed sixth overall and loved the experience! Year 3 and 4 had a special visit from a fundraiser from the Zambezi Sunrise Trust charity this week. They are excited to be raising money for this worthwhile cause as part of their legacy from this term’s topic all about Africa.
Year 5 have been investigating pulleys and unequal forces as part of their outdoor learning in forest school today. Year 1 were using pizzas to discuss mathematical concepts
relating to shape. I even got to taste test a bit and it was delicious!
World Book Day
We would like the children to dress up as their favourite BOOK character for Weds 1st March which is world book day this year. Year 6 are off to Mandarin Bay for lunch today as part of their theme learning about China. Photos will be on the next newsletter! We hope you all enjoy a lovely half term break and look forward to hearing the children’s
news from Monday 26th February when school resumes.
