Dan Worsley (author) visit

On Monday, we had a visitor from the author Dan Worsley! He read some short extracts from his book about pirates. We then wrote a character description about the pirate in the story, using lots of adjectives and similes to make our writing exciting. 

Dogs Trust Visit

On Thursday, we had a special visitor from the Dogs Trust to come and talk to us about how you should act around dogs. We loved learning about how we should care for dogs and the rules we need to follow to keep us safe around dogs.


In Maths we have been learning how to tell the time using 5 minutes and practised this using clocks. We also recapped on o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.


In English we have been innovating our character from our story, Farmer Duck. We chose another character (sheep, cow, horse, pig, etc) and wrote a detailed character description using adjectives and similes. We then innovated our story mountain using our new story.

Achiever of the Week: Scarlett Ellam!

I could pick Scarlett every single week! She always tries her best in all areas of learning, but she’s been working extremely hard in maths this week. We have been thinking about time and telling the time to 5 minuets and Scarlett has been smashing it! Her hand has been constantly up on the carpet, giving lots of answers. We’re so proud of you Scarlett, well done!
