Well done to everyone who came in PJs today to raise money for Children in Need today. At break-time the Pupil Parliament (with staff) ran some games/competitions including the CIN Duck Race (where Beakwell Tart was crowned the winner).We managed to raise a massive £225.16. Thank you!
This week was Maths Week England and we decided to take part in some of the activities they had planned to raise the profile/enjoyment of mathematics in school. Children did some fun activities/puzzles with a maths focus and each year group did a mathematics quiz to enter a competition.

Ash class had lots of fun making biscuits and we were very impressed with their skills! Most of the biscuits will be for the community tea but the children all enjoyed sampling one as well. The verdict? "Scrumdiddlyumptious," according to Luca! Well done also to Lianie who took all of the photographs.
Ash Class is amazing! All of the children have settled in beautifully and have enjoyed the start of our exciting Japan topic. We have plenty of fun learning to look forward to and a class letter will come home with further details this week. Tomorrow our first homework will be coming home, and this can be found here on the website as well.
Ash class have been having lots of fun looking for plants, flowers and mini beasts around the school grounds. Using the tablets, they then took photographs of what they had found and compared using the zoom feature to moving closer to the object. Back in class, once the images had been uploaded, they used features within Paint to crop, add text and edit their photographs. Excellent skills, Ash class!
Today we had our second ever mini-mud run and despite the difference in weather from last year, the children really enjoyed the sessions and got well and truly muddy. Here is a small collection of the 500 photos that were taken!
Ash class are starting some work on multiplication this week! To begin with we will work on repeated addition, before learning that we can do this more quickly with the x symbol.
Did you know that by the end of this year, Year 2 should ideally know their 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables? We are sure they have the skills! Year 1 are also learning to count in equal steps and join in with chanting in twos, fives and tens.
All of Key Stage one had a gloriumptious day on Tuesday, getting fully Dahl-esque with our costumes as well as a range of fun activities. Thanks so much to the parents who came in to read extracts of Dahl books; this was such a hit with the children and they have been inspired!
