Dear Parents / Carers


Learning this week Nursery children have been learning about the journeys that cars and tractors make everyday.  Reception children have been making Rainforest parrots and snakes using old socks!  Year 1 children have been learning multiplication, addition and subtraction in numeracy.  Children in year 2 spent a lovely day at Longleat Safari Park where they saw the animals and had a ride on a boat.  Year 3 children have been working on their spider sculptures and in PE they have be practicing their tennis forehand. Year 4 children have been adding pronouns to sentences to expand them and in numeracy they have been learning how to ‘round’ numbers.  Children in year 5 have been studying the life cycle of plants and went to the school garden where they planted wild flowers to go in the park.  Year 6 children have been sewing ice cream designs in art lessons.
