Our canopic jars are really coming along. We have built them, mod rocked them and now we are letting their first layer of paint dry.

School Councillors

We are proud to announce the winners of our school council vote in Year 4,

Finley and Beau both had great manifestos, explaining how they cared about recycling, bullying, the environment and the learning we do in school. We are proud to send them to our school council meetings to represent our views.

 

 Music lessons

  • Timestable Rockstars:

    A fantastic way for children to practice and compete against others. Click on the image below to access this very useful site. A "little and often" approach is the best way to help them secure these vital times table facts.

Reading

We all know the importance of reading and studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance. 

Reading promotes achievement in all subjects, not just English. Children who are good readers tend to achieve better across the curriculum.

In Year 4, children choose their own book within banded levels and take a quiz when they are finished. Children are encouraged to read daily both at school and at home. We ask that the pupils (or parents) record what they have read in their reading record. We encourage parents to listen to children and question them about the books that they are reading. 

Here's a website you can use to check if there is an Accelerated Reader quiz on a book you want to read:
