They should bring their pyjamas in a carrier bag and they will get changed in the afternoon.

Well done Merlins!

Ancient Egyptian Workshop

Our Ancient Egyptian Workshop is Friday 15th November! Please make sure that the children have a costume which they can come to school in. This could be a pharaoh, Cleopatra or an archaeologist. You still have plenty of time though so don't worry. 

Also, a very kind parent of year 3 has emailed in to suggest an event which is happening at the British Museum. It is called 'Digital Workshop: Egyptian Photobooth.' It is taking place on Saturday 19th October from 11:00am - 4:00pm.

An added bonus, it is COMPLETELY FREE and you can just turn up!

Thank you to that parent for your suggestion.

Homework 27.09.19: Apologies for the late upload. The spellings are stuck into the children's homework diaries and we are asking the children to revise the same times tables as last week. Thank you to everyone who has already made their project. They look fantastic!

More pyramids!


Times tables


Just to clear this up for everyone, this is what the times tables tests look like!


They have 40 questions to do in 5 minutes. 

The questions are all mixed up, not in order.

They will only be tested on the tables specified that week, although hopefully they will be able to practise others too! 

When there are division facts too, this means that as well as eg. 4 x 5 = ______ , they may be asked 20 ÷ 5 = _______ to make sure they are really embedded. 


I hope this makes sense! 


Miss Dodd

We already have two amazing pyramid projects! We can't wait to see more!



Unfortunately the new CGP homework books didn't make it home today amongst everything else to be remembered! 


They will definitely be coming home with your child on Monday. If you have a chance to do it during the week please do, but as obviously I know this may be inconvenient for some of you, they won't be expected to have done this week's pages until the following Thursday.


Thank you!



Homework 20.09.19. The project and the pages for the CGP books are in the document attached. The children should be practising x2, x3 and x5 times tables with DIVISION this week! Thank you.

Homework 13.09.19

The children have been sent home with a spelling sheet in their homework diaries. They have also been asked to learn the x2, x3 and x5 times tables. Homework is to be handed in by Thursday and both tests will take place on Thursday also. 

Miss Dodd. 

We have been looking at teeth in science!

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are going to be making Egyptian Death Masks this half term in Art. We would really appreciate if you could send your child in with an empty (and washed) four pints plastic milk bottle. We need these by Monday 16th September

Thank you,

Miss Dodd

Basketball - We were very lucky today to have a taster basketball session! The children had a great go at some games and did brilliantly, especially considering that the rules were all new to them! Some letters have gone home with those who wanted them about possibly joining basketball club in school.
