Room 11 – ICT and Research Skills

Room 11 have been working very hard developing our ICT and Research skills.

We have been working together and using the chrome books to research a topic of interest.

Each group chose out own topic we would like to research and then worked very well together to decide who would be responsible in creating each section of our research file.

Miss Riley was SO impressed with not only our fantastic ICT and research skills, but how well we all worked together as a team and delegated the different research roles within our groups!

Take a look at our fantastic researchers in action…

We also completed our watercolour art projects! What do you think of our Easter Bunnies?…

Roman Mosaics in Room 14

All the boys and girls in room 14 have settled back into school so well and it has been wonderful to see all their smiling faces everyday! We are continuing to look at our topic of The Romans and last week we looked at mosaics. We learned all about what these are and how they were made. The children then had a go at creating their own Roman mosaic art work and what a fabulous job they all did!

We are super writers in Room 1!

In Room 1, we have been enjoying our new topic – The Dinosaurs! We love to discover super Dino-facts and enjoy playing with our dinosaur toys. How many dinosaurs can you name?

Last week, when a dinosaur came to school, we sure were shocked! Look at all of our shocked faces! We couldn’t wait to write all about it during our taught writing lesson. We drew detailed faces showing a shocked expression and wrote a sentence describing the event. Well done to our Star Writers this week for doing such a super job!


Watch this space for more dino-fun!

Nut Free School

Just a reminder that we are a Nut Free School.

We have seen an increase in children bringing in products with nuts in them for snack or as part of their lunch. We have a number of children and staff who have severe nut allergies, and so ask that children do not bring these in to school. Thank you.

CamGlen Radio Book Club

Our friends at CamGlen Radio are currently looking for submissions for the monthly book club! Please see the information below if you’d like to take part.
Whatever books they’re reading, we want to hear all about them! We’d love for them to be part of our fun, new CamGlen Radio Kids’ Book Club📚

From toddlers to teenagers, everyone can get involved, tell us what book they’re reading & what they think of it. You can email us with their thoughts or send voice selfies – all of which will be aired on our radio show, Fri 26 March at 10 am.

This will be a great opportunity for pupils to get involved. All your pupils have to do is (via parents or guardians) send us over recordings or emails of them answering the following questions:

  • Why did you pick this book to read?
  • Who is your favourite character and why?
  • Would you recommend this book to your friends?
  • Would you read it again?
  • Have you read any other books by this author?
  • Did you learn anything from this book?
Emails can be sent to

Missing Scooter

On Friday, a scooter went missing from our bike sheds. A photo of the scooter is below. Could you let us know at the school office if someone has picked it up by accident so we can return it to it’s owner?

Autism Awareness Week- W/B 29.3.21

Hi everyone,

Next week we will be celebrating Autism Awareness Week within the school. The children will be learning about Autism within their classes through a variety of activities, lessons and videos.

We will not be fundraising this year due to the difficult circumstances that many families are going through at the moment as a result of Covid, however, if you wish to you can make a donation on the National Autistic Society website

Thank you for your support with this.

Dinosaurs .. in Newton Farm? 🦖🦕

This week in Room 3, we started our new class topic ‘Dinosaurs’. Lots of the children in the class already have a keen interest in this topic and enjoyed sharing their current knowledge about dinosaurs with their peers. We were super impressed! We are really looking forward to learning some more interesting facts about these reptiles in the coming weeks.

On Friday, we couldn’t believe our eyes. We were sitting in class completing our tasks when a huge dinosaur just appeared at our class window! It was huge and gave us all a little surprise. However, the dinosaur gave us a friendly wave and we all breathed a sigh of relief! Who knew dinosaurs were still roaming around in Newton Farm?

The children had lots of fun completing an interactive art activity this week. We learned how to create a dinosaur by drawing shapes. We think you will agree that they look amazing. Well done boys and girls! 🦖
