Terrific Timestables

We were lucky enough to share Willow Class' fabulous homework projects today!


They had designed and made a game that used timetables. 


They have worked incredibly hard to produce some brilliant games! 
It was such fun trying out their ideas.

Treat Time!

Walnut have worked so hard as a team that we have filled our pasta jar AGAIN!
This afternoon, we had a lovely time choosing our favourite activity in the classroom and decorating biscuits with an Easter Egg type pattern. 





Well done everyone for your hard work this term...... we look forward to April 14th when we will be excited to hear all of your holiday news!

How to be a 007 Learner!

We have spent time this week finding ways to encourage Agent 001 to be more of a 007! 
He finds it tricky when faced with a challenge, so it was our job to encourage him to be a more resilient learner. In Walnut class, we decided that we would create posters to support him, and help us too!

To start with we needed to remind ourselves about Bossy Words (Imperative Verbs) that we use when writing instructions or giving commands.



This really helped when we designed and wrote our posters this morning. 
Can you remember the ideas that you shared with 001?

Mission Lego Maths Day

In Ash class Mrs Peterson had mission lego to try to crack the code with many different lego activities for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.  All the children really enjoyed using their different maths skills using the baskets of lego to complete their mission. They all did really well to find the missing letter under the snail cage!

Musical fun

We loved watching our Year 2 singers and musicians in today's music assembly.  Walnut class were super proud of Chloe, Megan, Sophie H, Lola, Keeleigh, Arabella, Georgia, Olivia S and Scarlett.

After the assembly, they inspired us to sing and dance along to the songs choir sang in the performance!  The photos are a bit blurry from the dancing!!

Competition Calculations

Walnut spent some time helping Mrs Tatman in Numeracy this week.

She had seen a competition on the Hawk Conservancy website and knew that the class would be whizzy at using their addition skills to try out her ideas.


The Bird Race game uses two dice. You have to find the total to see which bird could move forward.

Some of the dice had numbers more than 20 on them to make the game more challenging!

The next task was to plan a flying display. The birds could only fly for certain times which meant some excellent adding, (or multiplying) was required.

The tricky thing was making sure the display timings weren't too short or too long. 

Mrs Tatman was delighted with all of the hard work she saw. If the Hawk Conservancy like her game then they will send her some bird stickers to share with her helpers!
Fingers crossed!
