A busy week back in Reception

This week we have enjoyed finding out about the children’s Christmas holidays. Les Papillons Verts were intrigued by this tarantula cast brought in by one of the children. They practised their art skills by looking closely and drawing what they could see. They enjoyed singing incy wincy spider and made spiders and water spouts in their busy time.

Busy First Week in Year 5

Year 5 have hit the ground running this week, throwing themselves into their new learning with fractions, decimals and percentages (in maths) and the Romans in Britain (in English). Swimming lessons have begun too, with nearly 40 of us taking the plunge today – and more lined up as soon as spaces become available. We are looking forward to our trip to Colchester Castle next week too- be sure to ask as about what we learn there!
