Aliens have landed!

The children have been interested in learning about space, the moon and the planets so this is our topic over the next few weeks. We have started to learn some facts about the Sun and the planets and the children have been to libraries and researched things on the internet at home too. Today we made alien masks and the children had to decide which planet their alien was from. It was very creative and the children were all enthusiastic and engaged. They look great too!



Thank you Mrs Scott

Today, we interviewed Mrs Scott, who is a governor for our school. As part of our RE topic, ‘Journeys’, we are learning about pilgrimages. We listened to Mrs Scott’s experiences at Lourdes and wrote about how she lives out her faith as a Christian. The children felt inspired by her story and cannot believe she has been to Lourdes fifteen times! That’s a lot of travelling.
Thank you Mrs Scott- we enjoyed talking to you today!

Further School Closure – Friday 2 March

Due to the ongoing severe weather conditions and the Amber Alert that is in place, school will remain closed tomorrow (Friday 2 March). We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hopefully we will open as usual on Monday 5 March. Please check the messaging service and school website for any further updates.


Minibeast Habitats

Year 2 have been learning about Minibeast Habitats and the conditions needed for survival. As part of this, we looked at the bug hotels to see what minibeasts we could find. Most of them were hidden as it was very cold. However, we found lots of slugs and worms! We then went into the church gardens and looked around the trees where we found millipedes, beetles and spiders!



We all made sure we washed our hands afterwards!



Year Five Update




This week we held an Open Morning for parents. We taught them about Viking life using artefacts, we really enjoyed being museum curators.

This is what some of our parents thought…

“It was interesting to learn about the Vikings and look at the different items together. It is useful to look at what the children are learning in Grammar. I think I will have to buy that book! I always enjoy coming into the children’s class to find out what they are learning.”

“It was great to witness the enthusiasm of the children to the subject (Viking) covered. A-Z of grammar a must!”

“Really useful to recap on changes since last Parent Morning. Very informative how parents can support learning in school. Fun and enjoyable class based activity. My child was so enthusiastic showing and explaining all about Viking artefacts. Really enjoy these activities.”

“’I enjoyed everything about this morning and found it all useful. I found the way Vikings cleaned their ears quite strange.”

“ I have found this morning very interesting. I have enjoyed reading and seeing things. I loved the key and toys.”

“ I did learn about the Vikings today and found it very interesting. My child is very engaged with this subject, especially the original artefacts! A trip to Yorvik Centre would be great!”

“It was great to see how they’re learning about the Vikings through objects from the Discovery museum. It also made me realise that I need a revision session on grammar!”

A furore Normannorumliberanos, Domine!

In history we are learning about the Vikings.

On 11th January AD793, the Vikings landed on Lindisfarne. They had sailed across the North Sea from Denmark and Norway. They rampaged through the island and killed monks in the priory. They stole gold and silver, and caused destruction and death. However, we have been learning about their way of life by studying artefacts and guessing what they were used for, just like real archaeologists.  Next week, we will be like museum curators and test our parents’ knowledge in our open morning…
