Open Evening 2017

The year 6 have made maths game for us to play, and they showed us how to play them.


We have been sketching. There was so much concentration even though it was hot outside. Lovely work from everyone.


Infant Music Festival


We had fun teaching children in Forest and Orchard classes our favourite song in Spanish.

We have been learning about what life was like when our parents and grandparents were young. We played games that they may have played such as ‘In and out the Dusty Bluebells’ and ‘Hopscotch’.


Paradise Park



In RE we have been looking at the religion ISLAM. In today’s RE session we looked at the five pillars of Islam and focused on the pillar ‘Prayer’.


We looked at poems by Spike Milligan. Children had the chance to rehearse and perform the poems. We looked at two poems ‘The Land of the Bumbly Boo’ and ‘The Ning Nang Nong’.



We looked at Andy Goldsworthy’s natural art pieces. They had the opportunity to go outside and in groups collect natural objects such as leaves, twigs and pebbles. They then worked together in their groups and created a similar piece to Andy Goldsworthy’s.


Finding out the time



We watched an animated story called the ‘Dream Giver’ and wrote the start of a story. We have included description in our writing. Please read our excerpts.

Once upon a time there was a kind lady called Sophie who gave everyone dreams. So today she went to an orphanage in London. As she got to the house she thought how am I going to get in?

Then a fairy jumped down the chimney. He flew upstairs. And he had a bag of golden eggs. He cracked one of the golden eggs and inside there was an astronaut.

She put the egg on a book. It was a dream for a boy. It was a dinosaur world book. Then he rolled the eggs onto a scary book and the dream was called dragon world. He landed on a dragon. The dragon started to roar. By Christina

The dream giver dropped the eggs on Freddy’s head. Freddy saw a monster and he was a good guy.

There was once a dream giver called Unicorn. One night she flew into the chimney and she landed on the sofa. She climbed the stairs. She gave dreams. One dream was of a princess and her shoes were pink.

By Ivy

Harry was fast asleep when this strange fairy man opened the windows. They was opened with a big blow of wind. Every time Harry had a good dream the fairy was happy and every time Harry had a bad dream the fairy was very very sad.

By Rosie

One night something came into the orphanage. It had a big horn, ginormous legs and gloomy scales. It was a black dragon with a sack of eggs! He tipped an egg on a tin soldier.

By Lowri

Suddenly a strange horse like figure was standing on the window sill. The figure leaped down from the window sill. Something was mistaken, it wasn’t a horse it was a flying unicorn! It has a mysterious glowing bag on her horn.

By Martim

One night something big but not too big came to a mysterious village on a haunted cliff. That thing flew into a normal house but the house was empty but he didn’t check upstairs so he flew upstairs.

By Henry

Once upon a time a fairy flew through a street called Pakes Drive. The fairy was called Lilly the Dream Fairy. She went into a house and a girl called Sophia-Kala was sleeping in her bedroom. Lilly opened an egg, a dream egg! It gave her a dream about a special monkey.

By Flo G

Once upon a time there was a girl she was a dream giver. Oh I forgot to tell you she is a unicorn. She cracks eggs open and instead of the yolk it is a dream. The unicorn uses its horn to crack it but just so you know the unicorn is very small so her horn is very small.

By Dascha

The dream giver was a weird old man. He was a dragon but a very silent dragon. He didn’t breathe fire and one night he might visit you. But tonight he is visiting Toby.

By Marnie


Maths - Problem Solving

We have been solving challenging problems using different apparatus to help us. We must make sure we explain our reasoning. 

Including Mrs Creasey's maths group

Maths - Measuring 

In class we have been enjoying measuring length, weight and capacity. We sorted containers that we “full”, “half full”, “nearly full” and “nearly empty”. We used measuring jugs to fill containers with the right amount of millilitres and then compared them.
