What fabulous hard work from all of Class 7 this week. This week we recapped quarter past and quarter to and today moved on to telling time in 5 minute intervals. Your collaborative work was awesome and lead to some great learning. Well done guys. Keep up the hard work!
Well done to the KS1 crew winners for the best maths day outfits. A big shout out to everyone who came to school dressed in outfits linked to maths. We were blown away by everyone’s efforts. What a great end to a fantastic week celebrating maths!
Crew Rodgers had indoor PE today and, continuing with our Dance unit, listened to the Story of Penguin Small who was abandoned by his friends, chased by polar bears and cast adrift on the sea before being reunited with the rest of his colony. They shared their ideas of how he felt and developed movements to show these emotions. See if you can guess any of their interpretations. Miss Barker and I were very impressed by your work.
How amazing are these plant life-cycle drawings produced in Crew Rodgers as part of our science case study? The children confidently used subject specific vocabulary to label each stage of the life-cycle and describe what was happening to the seed. Some of us could even talk about what dormant means and how this related to the state of the plant inside the seed case while it waits for the correct conditions to begin to grow. How very scientific we are! Move over Professor Sprout….Crew Rodgers are catching you up!
This Friday, Friday 30th April, marks the beginning of the Captain Tom 100 Challenge which will continue until Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May.

So impressed with how Crew Rodgers have returned to school after our 2 week break. We have completed our expedition and maths blast offs as well as re-establishing our class norms, setting ourselves individual HoWL targets, doing some quiet reading and making chickens to decorate our new farm themed classroom…..what a busy day!
How awesome was the learning in Crew Rodgers this morning in our Maths lesson? The children loved puzzling out our equations and really got to grips with regrouping. Our carpet looked like Einstein’s workshop! I only hope our lovely cleaning ladies will forgive us.
