Welcome to our blog

It has been a very  busy time in our class this term.


The children have really enjoyed our writing focus this term. They have been creating their own fantasy adventure based upon ‘Escape from Kraznir’.  Each lesson builds on the last one, over a serious of days with a different challenge to complete each time. This focus has sparked the pupils imagination and creativity. The children will have a complete adventure story, written by themselves, to share with you shortly.

Outdoor Learning

We have been using the outdoor environment on a regular basis this term to enhance our learning in both language and maths. The children have enjoyed these opportunities and it has helped them to develop their poetry skills, use of adjectives, thinking skills and knowledge of multiplication.


We have recently been working on Financial Education during our Maths sessions. The children were given the challenge of bugeting for a family for a week. They had £100 to spend. On Day 1 the children had to create a menu for a week for their family, create a shopping list of items to buy and use the internet to work out the cost of their shopping. On Day 2 they were told that someone in the family had an allergy to one of the following things: sugar, fish or dairy products. One of the families had vegetarian adults. The children were asked to adapt their menus from Day 1 to meet these needs. On Day 3 they had to present their findings to the rest of the class and state the total costings. Most of the children were within their budget, some even had change left.

The children were also challenged to choose a range of gifts for various ages of children. They then had to compare the price of these gifts in a variety of shops and afterwards tell the other children what they purchased, why they purchased that and the cost of the item in the various shops. It quickly became evident to the children the differences in price range for the same item.

The children have enjoyed using their mathematical skills, during these lessons, in a real life concept and the discussions that developed during and after the task were very mature and thoughtful. One child’s response was “I see now that you have to shop around before you buy something”. Another child said “It’s important to know your budget before going shopping”.
