What is coming up!


Trip to Bridgwater College Automotive centre on Tuesday 6th February , walking trip and will return to school by lunch time. Children have been asked to wear in sensible shoes/trainers.


Spring term one.

We have a very creative term ahead of us! The majority of this term will be inspired by Mrs Armitage on Wheels - she will become our cross curricula focus to inspire writing and allow use to use and build upon our DT skills. On Tuesday 6th February we will be walking across to BCA to see real mechanics in action - this will help us to build and develop our own wheels and axles for Mrs Armitage's very own car.


In English - we will be learning and applying new skills to continue to develop our writing stamina and content. We will be learning about inverted commas, persuasiveness, description, adverbs and the power of effective sentence starters. At the end of this term we will have created our very own Mrs Armitage tale. We can't wait to share them with you.


In maths we will continue to develop our quick recall of multiplication and division facts. We will also be learning about statistic and shapes. We will kick start the term with the exploration and interpretation of tally charts, pictograms and block charts. We will be continuing to answer, prove and explain our tasks to deepen our understanding and explore reasoning.
