Parents’ Night

As we are still unable to have parents in the building due to current restrictions, we have arranged to have video calls with class teachers as our Parents’ Night this term.

On Friday,  Mrs Cowie will post information  here on the blog and on the school App to explain how parents and carers can book a video call with their child’s teacher and the booking system will open on Monday. 

Dates :

WW1 Museum in Room 23

No school trips means we have to bring the museum to us!

Room 23 had a fantastic afternoon today looking at artefacts linked to WW1.

We had a Scottish Soldier’s uniform, German helmets, medals and even a Princess Mary Christmas Box. Please ask your children to share with you what they learnt at the museum.

You can find a video of the museum on your Google Classroom.

Room 16

This week in Room 16 we have been working hard during numeracy and literacy all week.

During Topic this week we were researching to see if there were any similar inventions out there to what we had invented to solve a certain problem. We found out that some of our ideas already exist, or are similar to what we had come up with. This was interesting to see that people can think of similar/the exact same ideas to solve certain problems.


During RME we were learning all about Saints and we had the opportunity to research one of these and write a mini Biography on their life using our ICT skills.


Room 16 would like to give a big congratulations to Harley Davis this week as he won five golds and two silver medals for his amazing gymnastics skills during the British Gymnastics Disability Championships, including the under 12 British Champion. We are so proud of you Harley! we enjoyed hearing all about this, watching the videos of your routines in class and also getting to see the pictures from the Newspaper and ask lots of questions. Keep up the amazing work!


Hope you have had a lovely weekend

Knights and Sukkah’s ✏️😁

Halloween excitement is building in Room 5 and we have already started putting up some fun decorations! 🎃 We can’t wait to celebrate in class next Friday.

This week we took advantage of the lovely sunshine (although cold!) and ventured outside, to work in teams, to build Sukkah huts. These huts are created during the Jewish festival of Sukkot. We think they look pretty good!


We also made fantastic Knights for our class topic. Firstly, we coloured in the body parts, then cut them out and finally put them together again with little pins. The special pins help the arms and legs move which makes them look real.

This week, we also announced our Star Writer. She wrote a fantastic narrative piece in which she described a forest setting. Her handwriting was beautiful and she remembered to put in the appropriate punctuation. Well done superstar! 🌟

Room 13

Well, yet again, another busy week has come to an end in room 13.

We started with a new block of learning in P.E. and have been developing our hockey skills. We have been practising the safe and correct ways to hold a hockey stick and are getting used to manoeuvring the ball about the pitch.

In literacy, we have been getting stuck in to our new reading books and consolidating our learning of the different reading strategies. We are still reading ‘The Creakers’ for enjoyment!

In Numeracy, we have continued to become masters of addition. We have been working on column addition with carrying and have realised that once we know how to use the skill, we can apply it to even bigger numbers! We also revised how to round a number to the nearest 10 and 100.

We’ve done lots of fantastic work this week and I am very proud of all the children in room 13 ☺️

I hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Miss Henderson

Feeling Good in Room 3

This week in Room 3, we have been super busy!  We hope you enjoy reading about and looking at our learning in this week’s blog post.

We learned three new common words; I, it and in. We have been practising spelling these words using our 5 finger rule.

For Mathematics, we have enjoyed creating models using 2D shapes. Did you know shapes are in the world all around us?

For P.E., we have begun to to explore dancing. What do you think of our ‘Dance Off ‘ video? We had so much fun moving our bodies. Watch this space for more super moves.




As part of our ‘All About Me’ topic, we have been discussing our feelings and sharing stories of when we are happy, sad, scared or angry. Some of our learners even volunteered to share this on our blog.

Well done Room 3 – I am feeling so proud of you! Have a lovely weekend!

Room 1

Good afternoon everyone, what a fun week we have had in Room 1.

The boys and girls were learning the ‘i’ sound, ask your child if they can tell you a word that starts with ‘i’.

We are continuing to practise our common words I, it and is, ask you child if they can put any of these words into a sentence.

During our number work we were learning all about the number 8, ask your child the different ways they might see 8 written.

Room one were all very excited this week to create their very own Autumn trees. Have a look below at our super finished pieces.

Well done everyone in Room 1 for a fantastic week, we are so proud of how hard you are all working.

Have a great weekend,

Mrs Kerr and Mrs Ventre
