This week in French we have been starting to learn the vocabulary for different jobs. We looked at a matching game to help us remember the different terms.
To investigate different ratios, we looked at smarties and looked to see if the ratios of colours were the same. We found some matching ratios between packets but they were not all the same. It was also helpful for us to simplify a ratio.
Children really enjoyed today’s practical maths session with Mr Hood. They looked carefully at the ratio of colours in a Smartie tube. By the end of the session children not only could they talk about ratio clearly, they were adamant they wanted to write to Nestle to complain about the unfair quantities seen in each […]
We are so proud of our Year3/4Children who are learning to play the drums. They have been working on rhythm and pulse and collectively produced some fabulous sounds.
Today we celebrated our children’s successes during special mentions. A wonderful assembly. We are so proud of you all.
Over the last few weeks we’ve been building our skills in Netball. We’ve focused on passing & moving, losing a defender, shooting and communication.
This week we have been researching foods for healthy smoothies so that we can use them for leaving events later in the year. The testing was for flavour combinations and looking at the health benefits of the fruit so that we can then design smoothies and test out how they taste.
Well done to Y3/4Pfor acting out the role play of how Eyam was infected by the plague.
Today 6B has tried a wide range of fruit, taking notice of the tastes, textures and combinations of flavours. Children carefully considered which fruits would work best in smoothies and started to plan a new product. They then researched the health benefits for their chosen fruits as our topic is all about me and our […]
This week we had such a fantastic special mentions. Our children have completed some fabulous learning. We’ve had French and Chinese languages explored, history and computing. It has been so wonderful to celebrate their amazing achievements especially 3F winning the Sumdog competition for the whole of Rotherham this week. Cairon won the Head Teacher’s award […]
The children enjoyed learning hip hop moves as part of international dance day.
Today, 5P made the short trip to our Leaf Centre. We discussed the building, its purpose when built, and how it is going to support lots of young children for many years to come.
This morning 6H celebrated International Dance Day by attempting some Salsa steps. We followed some basic steps to see if we could start off some Salsa dancing. Mr Hanson again tried to show off his best moves. It was so much fun, so why not give it a go?
Today, home learning has been sent with children to complete a build your own model of an internet legend. We can’t wait to see photos of these next week. Have fun 6B!
In 6B, we contrasted 2 types of dancing: Ballet and Hip Hop. We were surprised that we actually liked both styles in the end. Here are our videos of us in action today. https://youtube.com/shorts/qedDBnFUHZo?feature=share https://youtube.com/shorts/I2TBN3vByyE?feature=share
We combined our geography, computing and oracy skills this afternoon to compare the locations the vikings came from to the UK. Children were involved in the project of creating a weather report using the green screen and I movie to show their final outcomes.
Today the children have been investigating the best shape for a Viking longboat. They created their prototypes and then tested them out. We then created a RUBRIC for our initial design.
Today 6H went to have another look at how the LEAF centre is developing. We went up to see how the building is progressing and looked at how the walls are being constructed. We enjoyed seeing the crane. The children are looking forward to going again in a couple of weeks to see how it […]
Some of the Y6s are so happy this is happening as they have been involved in its development since they were in Y4.
In literacy today we worked on our oracy skills as we interviewed different people from the Lindisfarne attack by the Vikings. Children worked well in groups to develop questions and answers. A few brave children then stepped up to answer the groups questions. A great lesson. Well done Mr Parkin

This week in PE, 6H have been practicing their forehand and backhand strokes in tennis. We have been working on our hand eye coordination and also our control when striking the ball. The shots were getting much better by the end of the session and will continue to improve next time.
As part of Earth week, 6H looked at how humans have an impact on our planet. To be the change makers of the future, we wrote pledges for what we could do to look after the planet for future generations. Using cars less, planting more trees and using recyclable plastics were just some of the […]
As part of our science learning this week, 6H looked at the different cells which make up blood in the body. Using different foods we made blood looking at the percentages of each type of cell you needed. The results were fantastic.
This week, we were very lucky that Mrs Elliott brought in two new born goats to school. 6H really enjoyed visiting them and asking questions. They were really impressed that Mr Hanson even held one! Hopefully we will see them again when they are bigger.
Leighton and Ally are loving the big pedal challenge this week. Well done!
