Living and Learning: RSE

Posted on Friday 15 July 2022 by Mr Wain

This half term, we’ve been enjoying our RSE Living and Learning sessions.

RSE is relationships and sex education.

Each week, we have a different L&L statement. During our RSE learning, these were all about relationships and being a good friend. Our sessions included learning about:

  • the names of male, female and baby animals such as a bull, cow and calf
  • the biological differences between male and female humans
  • the names of body parts that males and females have

The children in Y3 had lots of relevant, thoughtful questions during our learning and were able to show maturity, too! Well done, Y3!

Super Sports Day

Posted on Wednesday 06 July 2022 by Mrs Weekes

What an amazing day yesterday! Our first full sports day since the pandemic and we came back with an amazing bang! Mrs Taylor did a grand job of organising everything, as always, and all the helpers that made it run smoothly were brilliant. Mr Roundtree is a little croaky today after his commentating but I’m sure you’ll agree, it was well worth it. You will see a photo of Mrs Burke completing her final egg and spoon race as a member of staff but you never know, she might be guest of honour next year. Thank you to everyone who came along to watch!

Living and learning: drug education

Posted on Wednesday 06 July 2022 by Mrs Taylor

This half term, part of our Living and Learning focus includes drug education. We have arranged for visitors to come into school to help to deliver this key aspect of education. 

We have been working with d:side for many years and they will be visiting school to deliver sessions to all classes based around drug education on Monday 11 July and Wednesday 13 July.

 d:side is a comprehensive drug & alcohol education programme that encourages children to make positive & healthy life-choices whilst promoting a pro-active attitude to life. They focus on developing the children’s knowledge, skills & attitude, whilst equipping them with the appropriate life skills to successfully manage sensitive situations with peers & encourage a positive approach to life.

As part of this visit, Dave Hill, from d:side, will be available in the playground after school on Monday 11 July 3:05-3:30pm to answer any questions about this learning. 

Parallel and Perpendicular!

Posted on Monday 13 June 2022 by Mr Wain

In today’s maths lesson, our learning objective was:

What are parallel and perpendicular lines?

We learnt that…

parallel = lines that are opposite, equal distance apart and will never meet

perpendicular = lines that are at a right angle to each other

Part of our learning involved finding parallel and perpendicular lines in the playground.

Here’s what we found:

Can your child identify all the parallel and perpendicular lines in the photos above? Can they find any at home?

Drop-down morning: History

Posted on Friday 27 May 2022 by Mr Wain

Each half term, we have a drop down morning where we revisit previous learning from previous half terms, terms and years!

On Wednesday, we had our History drop down morning.

Our first session was about chronology: we ordered periods of British history in chronological order.

Later on in the morning, we revisited recent learning about The Romans. This is what we were able to remember:

We ended the morning by playing a Kahoot about the Great Fire of London.

Well done to our winners Alasdair and Maya who got 9/10 correct and answered the questions the quickest!

Well done to everybody for their awesome remembering!
