Today the children in Ospreys have been exploring weight and length. They each took it in turns to use the different measuring equipment. They explored the different types of scales that we can use and found that it was a bit tricky to measure the circumference of your head with a ruler.
Children from across all classes have been having fun in rhythm and drums club, exploring different ways of making rhythms and drumming along to popular songs.
We have also been using the iPads to record the rhythms that the children have created…. Look out for these recordings on the blog soon!
Since half term, Sparrowhawks have been looking at fractions. We have all designed our own fraction pizza. Today, we visited Sainsburys to buy the ingredients that we needed to make our pizzas. We looked at different deals and worked out which products were the best value for money. We are looking forward to using out ingredients to make our fraction pizzas tomorrow!
On Tuesday, some of our most talented writers were joined by 18 other children from local schools for a day-long creative writing workshop. This was led by Mark Robson, the author of the Darkweaver and Dragon Orb series, who shared some of his author’s tips and experiences with the children.
Children were challenged to write their own short story during the workshop, while Mark offered insights and advice about how to improve their writing and target their audiences. The silence in the room was testament to how absorbed the children were in the session and in creating their stories…you could have heard a pin-drop as the children set about conjuring up gripping introductions and fast-paced adventures.
Mark was very impressed with the children’s writing talent, and we were impressed with our children’s engagement and understanding.
Have a look at some of the work they produced.
Well done to the year 3 / 4 netball team who played in a tournament yesterday at Callowell and have now progressed through to the final. The team included Cal, Paige, Rachel,Millie & Madison. We look forward to hearing more about their match next week.
As part of our work on Cinderella, the Peregrines have planted their very own pumpkin seeds. Who knows…one day it might turn into a magical coach to whisk them away to a ball!

We’d love for you to read our blogging rules and comment on what we have been doing.
Could you make these colours?
What ratio and proportion would you have to follow?
Eagles created their own paint colours for their partners to make using their ratio instructions, however they had to consider:
The length of time they poured
What the ratio indicated
Was one the same in each ratio?
