    During this International week, we have undertaken many sporting workshops linked to a range of continents. Some of these include Capoeira, traditional Italian sports and popular Canadian ice sports. The children also worked with Great British para-Olympic athlete James Arnott. Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed our sporting parade at the end of the day and it was lovely to see so many parents join us.

  • Mathematical laws!

    This week in English we have been writing explanation texts about the life cycle of a plant, using our scientific knowledge while in Maths we have been learning about associative and distributive law. In Spanish we have been writing sentences about animals including their size and colour.

  • World Book Day

    This week in English we have been exploring explanation texts while in maths we have been using arrays to support our division. On Thursday all the children looked fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed sharing a book.

    On Tuesday we took part in a problem solving workshop that encouraged pupils to work in teams to solve different mathematical puzzles.

  • Sculptures
