Home Learning

Hello all,

Please click below to open a copy of home learning for this half term. It is a long list! However the expectation is that your child completes one challenge. They can absolutely do more than this if they choose and we look forward to sharing every Friday. If your child wants to build a model they may add to it each week but bring it in at the end of the half term or even after half term. They could record through pictures what they do each week or take photos to share if they would like to.

The children are very excited about our topic and so I am sure they will would like to bring something each week to share.

Have fun,

Mrs. Luter and Miss Allen


Sea City Museum!

We had a fantastic time at the Sea City Museum on Friday! Thank you so much again to all the parents and grandparents who were able to offer their time to help us. We really do appreciate it, as without you our wonderful trips cannot take place and as you saw this one was so beneficial to the children’s learning around this topic.

We all learnt lots of amazing facts about the Titanic and found out what it would have been like to be on board back in 1912! Hope they have been sharing them with you over the weekend.

The children enjoyed dressing up as ship staff and passengers who would have been on the Titanic as well as learning about names of real people and whether or not they survived the tragedy! We explored different items that would have been on the ship as well as trying to match up different smells to areas of the ship. The children also had a go at discovering how many compartments needed to fill with water before the ship would sink. We found out that if Titanic only had four compartments filled with water then it would have survived!

We are excited to find out what is inside the topic box which we bought back to school with us from the museum. All shall be revealed next week when we begin lots more work around the Titanic!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Miss Allen, Mrs Luter, Mrs Wickes, Mrs Chapman and Mrs Hewett

Welcome back to the new term!

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas break! Well done to all the children for working so hard with completing their home learning over the holidays as well as taking part in the Bug Club Challenge with reading lots of books!

We have had a lovely first week back settling into our learning and we are very excited that we have now launched our new topic for the term which is Titanic where we have been learning lots of facts and acting out what it might have been like to be a passenger on the ship at the time of the disaster! We are all excited to find out more on Friday when we visit the Sea City Museum!

During numeracy we are continuing to practice our addition and subtraction skills. There is homework on Abacus to support this learning. Thank you so much for your continuous support with the home learning, it is showing great impact on the children’s learning.
