We are geographers!

This week, we have thoroughly enjoyed finishing our Geography case study and I have been super impressed with everyone’s knowledge and understanding of climate change and how it has effected Svalbard. We used the iPads to investigate the geographical zones of the Earth, the seven continents and even topographical features of the Uk and Svalbard and everyone has been able to apply their knowledge to link what is happening in our beautiful planet to our class text!
Well done Crew – I’m so proud of you all!


A big well done to Evie for achieving her learning legend for her awesome geography knowledge in expedition this week. She could confidently apply her knowledge of topographical features to explain why climate change is having an impact in Svalbard!

Also, a big well done to Lewis for achieving 100% on 3 consecutive accelerated reader quizzes and having a go at opening Mrs Jackson’s prize box! Fingers crossed you’ll crack the code next time!

TT Rockstar Club

Check out their concentration!

I’ve been well and truly blown away the last couple of weeks at TT Rockstars by how hard the children are trying.

The focus and dedication they have got to beat their scores, or improve their times is fantastic!

We have certainly got some rock legends in the making here and I have no doubt that they will be whizzing through the multiplication test at the end of Year 4.

Well done everyone, see you next Monday.

P.s you’ve all got 30 HoWL points for working hard and getting smart even after the school day has finished!

Year 3/4 Crew Assembly

It was great for our crew leaders to share some lovely shout outs about individuals in our crews today. Those people who have really gone that extra mile this week and got recognised and praised for their super attitudes towards their learning, it’s wonderful to hear!

Also, well done to Crew Myers on being the overall HoWL score winner this week. I wonder who it will be next week spinning the wheel for a crew reward?

Finally, a big well done to Crew Myers and Crew Faulding on being the attendance winners this week too! Let’s keep this going guys as we want to keep building our attendance money up!

Kindness in Crew Myers

Theo and Jake are our learning legends today as everyone has noticed just how kind they are. Both boys go out of their way everyday to help others and be the very best versions of themselves and we are super proud to have them in our crew! Well done boys!

Wonderful Writing! ✍️

A big well done to today’s learning Legends – Jesse and Ronnie! Their setting descriptions are absolutely awesome using lots of creative, descriptive vocabulary as well as using phrases from our class text to link their writing!

What makes a great setting description?

Today it was a pleasure to teach English to both my Crew and Crew Faulding. In groups, the children read through a model text of a setting description which was taken from our new Class text. They then identified the features that had been included and spoke about the purpose of each feature.

I was so impressed with all the children’s knowledge as well as their collaborative skills and how kind and helpful they were to each other! I can’t wait to see lots of great writing features in our extended write on Monday!


Here are some more pictures of Year 4 enjoying our day at YWP yesterday. We had such a great time seeing all the animals and learning lots of amazing facts about Polar Bears and how they survive in the wild.

A big well done to you all for your fab behaviour representing the school yesterday.
