Times Tables

KS2 children are trialling a new maths programme called Times Table Rockstars. It is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice, which we are promoting across school. In order to support your child at home, we are encouraging the use of this website to further embed times tables.  Quick recall of times tables is essential for KS2. The website can be accessed via this link or alternatively, the Times Table Rockstar app be downloaded for free on any iPad or compatible mobile device. It is also useful to know that local secondary schools use this programme too.


All KS2 children have been given their logins so can start straight away. Many thanks for your support, Miss Armitage

Swifts display of Outdoor Week

First we researched the types of trees within the grounds of the school by identifying the leaves. We then used our working scientifically skills to record different types of plants found on our playing field and presented our results as a bar chart.
In anticipation of our new science topic, Natural Habitats, we designed and built some Minibeast Hotels, carefully thinking about the best environments for our little friends and what they could be made of. We have hidden them and look forward to seeing if anyone has checked in. 😉
We used the opportunity to create some symmetry art, making use of the symmetry found in so much of nature.
Lastly, fun was had by all practising catching using Dimitris' water balloons! Our rounders game was occasionally interrupted by a stray water balloon when Mrs de Klerk was bowling.

What a fantastic way to spend such a glorious week.
Please like this post if you would like to see an outdoor week again!

The last day of our outdoor learning week. It's been great!!

We all painted a pebble woodland friend for our hedgehogs and then took it on a journey from the allotment to the Secret garden. We collected memories of our journey to help us write about our hedgehog's journey from the allotment to visit his friend in the Secret Garden. We had to explain what we heard, saw, felt and smelled. using lots of description.
