The Masked Reader – Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek of our Masked Reader!

Coming 4th March …

Castles Project.

What a fantastic Design and Technology case study we have enjoyed in our Castle Walls expedition in year 2. The children have designed and built authentic castles with working drawbridges as you have seen in our blog posts this week. This afternoon the children participated in a silent gallery where they evaluated their friends work and then used their comments to produce thoughtful and helpful critiques.

Please enjoy this video which showcases their efforts.

Super proud of you guys!

Throughout March, as a school we are planning to walk from John o Groats to Lands end and back! That’s 1,748 miles!

If my calculations are correct as a school we only need to do 110,505 steps a day! Easy!

So charge up your fit bits and smart watches and get your walking shoes ready!

At the end of the week complete the google form that I have attached to this blog and we will record your steps. There will be weekly prizes in school for most steps in a week and all school staff will be getting involved too.

Good luck and I hope you enjoy the challenge 🙂

Grand Designs

Crew Rodgers have spent a wonderful afternoon using our designs to begin building our model castles. We wanted to make sure our castles included authentic features so we spent time cutting crenellations into the walls as well as installing windows and arrow loops. All of our castles boast gatehouses with real working drawbridges to keep out the dragons! Check back tomorrow to see how our work progresses as we begin to decorate and paint our designs.

Key Stage 1 half term video

Jerusalema KS1 video link


As part of mental health and well being week last week Key Stage 1 enjoyed learning a dance that has gone viral and really wanted to do their own…who are we to let them down 🙂


So, we have an end of term video that Key Stage 1 would love to share with you.

Thank you to children at home and in school and to parents and carers for all of your hard work and supporting school in everything we do.


Have a lovely half term


Mrs Shaw and your Key Stage 1 crew


On the trail of a princess

Crew Rodgers showed all they have learned in their Position and Direction maths unit today by following, or drawing and describing a trail for a dragon to find a princess. They used squared paper to make forward movements, and clockwise and anticlockwise turns to map out the route the dragon should take. The progress you have made in this unit is obvious.

So proud of you all.
