Ask your children about digraphs!

In class 3 and 4 this week we have been learning about digraphs in our phonics lessons. The children have been blending words with digraphs at the end and highlighting digraphs in words. Miss Hughes, Mrs Cook, Mrs Hardman and I have been astounded by the children’s knowledge and how quickly they have learnt to spot these graphemes in words!

Ask your child – can they explain what the word ‘digraph’ means?

Sam’s Safari visit KS1

Today KS1 enjoyed a visit from Sam’s Safari.  They got to meet 10 animals up close and were able to touch them all if they were brave enough!  They met a giant millipede, Sally the African snail, a tortoise called George, a turtle, two different gecko species, ‘Twiggy’ the stick insect, ‘Fidget’ the tree frog, a snake and finally ‘Henrietta’ the chicken!  Lot’s of great learning took place and in the next few days photos of the children will appear on class blogs so keep looking out so you can see how brave our children are!

We are home learners!

Louis would like to share his fantastic Roman poem which he completed for his home learning.

                                                          Romans, Romans!                                                                 They can crush you like a pack of Dobermans.

                                               Romans are very strong and brave                                                       and really, really crave copper metal and gold.

                                                They built roads and bridges so high                                                    and Julius Caesar gave us the name July.

                                          The Romans Stayed in Britain for years!                                                    I bet the British came out in tears.

                                      

Such an amazing response to our home learning menu in class 11.  Well done Guys!!
