Dear Parents /Carers,


This week the Nursery classes have been learning about ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and they have made edible caterpillars. Reception classes visited the zoo and saw gorillas.  Year 1 classes learned about amphibians and learned how to count back from 100.  Year 2 have learned how to do arrays and made a conscience alley for Mr Fox and badger.  Year 3 have been telling the time with roman numerals and been making spiders in art.  Year 4 have had a debate about healthy eating and learned about Alexander Fleming and penicillin. Year 5 also visited the zoo and made sketches and reports from their day there.  Year 6 have been learning how to change numbers into improper fractions and writing escape stories.


A special well done to our girls’ football team, who won five out of five of their games on Thursday and are through to next week’s finals.
