Our Year Group News – 10th April 2018

We have recently finished topics on ‘Electricity' and ‘Animal Adaptations' and are currently working on our exciting ‘Moonbase' project.  The children are working cooperatively in groups to design, create and present a brochure about their moonbase.  This cross-curricular topic includes lots of ICT, maths (scaled drawings, measuring, etc.), science investigations, art and persuasive writing.

We are just beginning to read our new class text for this term: ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ by Michael Morpurgo.

We are also, of course, very busy preparing for ‘Cake Week' next month (shhhh - don't mention the SATS)! Thank you for all your work at home to support this.

We are most especially looking forward to our residential trip to Sneaton, near Whitby, in June.  Please keep your fingers crossed for us that the weather will be kind!


PE and Games lessons

These are usually on a Monday and a Thursday. Please ensure your child has the appropriate, labelled kit in school.


As in previous years, please listen to your child read as often as possible each week, help them to practise and learn their tables and spellings and encourage them to practise their Maths on Mangahigh.

Please be aware that additional homework is given out every Friday and the children are rewarded for handing their completed work in on a Monday morning. At times, your child may be given extra homework to practise particular skills. Please remember to check and sign your child's homework diary every weekend. There are homework deadlines, useful reminders and details of upcoming events for you to see.

20th June 18 - Our ‘Whitby Day’ on our residential

We spent the morning at Pannett Park in Whitby - visiting Whitby museum - and then enjoyed having lunch at the play area.  We walked around Whitby in the afternoon, enjoyed an exhilerating ride on the old lifeboat and some time at the beach, though it got a bit chilly!  We walked up the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey before returning to Sneaton Castle.  After our evening meal, we had a fascinating talk from one of the nuns, Sister Grace.  

21st June 18 - Our day in Dalby Forest

We enjoyed shelter building and walked a good distance to do some very challenging orienteering in Dalby Forest on the third day of our Sneaton Castle residential.  Once again, the play area was a big hit, too!

22nd June 18 - Visiting The Moors National Park Centre on the final day of our residential

After our last breakfast at Sneaton Castle, we spent our final day away at Danby Lodge, the Moors National Park Centre.  It was beautiful weather for geo-caching outside and we also learnt about animal classification, the different habitats and the different birds of the North York Moors.
