Handwriting and presentation

Woodpeckers are working hard this year to practise our new St Martin's cursive script for handwriting and to present work neatly.  These are two careful copies, with illustrations, of our end of day blessing.


On Friday 29th June we present our gold book worship performance of Viking Saga Songs to the school and visitors.  Starting at 2.30pm in the main hall.


Our open afternoon on 27th June focused on science and we made it rain in the classroom.


We presented gold book worship on Friday 20th April and shared our learning about the legend of Saint George, the patron saint of England.


An open classroom event was due to be on Thursday 1st March but it snowed!


Spring term parents evenings were held on Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st March.


On Wednesday 29th November for our open classroom event we answered quiz questions on the First News newspaper for young people.


Our first gold book worship was on Friday 3rd November, when we shared our learning about Ancient Egypt and showed our collages of gods.  (See Peek at our Week for week beginning 30th October.)


Autumn term parents evenings were held on 17th and 18th October.


Our first open classroom event this year was on Tuesday 10th October, when visiting parents were able to join in with designing Christmas cards.  (See 'peek at our week for week beginning 9th October 2017' via the link below.)



Homework is usually a practice maths sheet linked to our weekly work in Abacus maths and some English skills practice.  Homework now goes home on Tuesday, to be completed and returned by the following Monday. 


Children should be reading every day.  There is no better way to make progress than to read regularly.


The following links are for online activities which children can access using their passwords.  The school pays for these facilities so that children can use them for homework ... and fun!
