What a week in Primary 7!

What a return to learning we have had in room 17, I can’t believe that we’ve been back for 3 whole weeks!


We rounded off our Natural Disasters topic by learning all about a very famous volcano called Mount Vesuvius in the ancient city of Pompeii 🌋 We then put our new found knowledge to the test and wrote imaginative stories about the day Vesuvius erupted! The children were so descriptive in their writing it felt like I was there in that moment in time!

In numeracy we have been learning all about algebra and challenging ourselves by solving equations and finding the missing number.

We participated in lots of different activities to help raise our awareness during Autism awareness week. We had some fantastic discussions and even shared some personal experiences too.

Finally, we can’t forget about Easter! We learnt all about Easter traditions in France 🇫🇷  (the flying bells received a mixed reaction) and Mrs Webber and P7 created some fantastic cross stitch Easter eggs!

Room 11 – Happy Easter!

A big ‘WELL DONE’ to all of the boys and girls in Room 11 for their wonderful hard work at school, and home, this term! You have all worked incredibly hard and you should all be very proud of your amazing work and what you have achieved!

We would also like to say a big ‘THANK YOU’ to our Room 11 families and friends for your continued support and hard work throughout this (very different!) year!

Enjoy your much deserved Easter break!

Springtime in Room 20!

The boys and girls in Room 20 are having so much fun being back in school in real life! They have all settled in very well and are enjoying learning with each other again.

We absolutely love art in Room 20 and enjoy developing our skills 😀

It was clear when we returned to class that we needed to bring a springtime theme into our room (Miss Stark had only just taken down the Christmas tree after all!). So we discussed  what themes and objects we relate to Springtime, things like bunnies, lambs, chocolate, flowers, pastel colours etc. We then decided to pick two main themes, bunnies and bright/pastel colours. Then using the visual elements of colour and line we created our own “Bunny Art”. We sketched our bunny shapes and then added pattern and detail using pen. We then choose a medium (paint, pen, watercolour) to add colour to our background.

We are so pleased how they turned out! 😀

Back to School in Room 16

The last two weeks have been filled with smiles, sunshine and laughter in Room 16. We are all so happy to be back, learning together ❤️☀️

We have started a new class novel which we so far love, we have created a wall of hope based on The Book of Hopes. Last week we enjoyed some DEAR time in the sun (Drop Everything And Read) and created beautiful poems outside.

This week we have created some fantastic imaginative pieces of writing inspired by some thought provoking images for the book The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. It was fantastic to hear the buzz around the classroom as the children were desperate to share their ideas.

It has been lovely to be back in the classroom together and I can’t wait for the exciting months ahead.

This Week in Room 2

We have had a super busy and very exciting week in Room 2.

We have been learning our new sound ‘th’ and our common words and also practising our number stories. Ask me about number partners.

We are able to identify how we are feeling and how our bodies display these emotions.

We are really enjoying our new Dinosaur topic and have been busy exploring the past. We are super excited to continue our topic learning and find answers to our questions.

Well done everyone 😀

Word building with our new sound ‘th’.

We have been working hard to practise our number stories.

Team building games in our P.E. session.

We created model dinosaurs using a variety of outdoor materials from our playground.
