Using a range of colours, everyone had the same outline yet created a unique piece of artwork.

Year 3 Maths

Today we started our fractions topic, we made a tower of 8 cubes and we split them into equal and unequal towers. We also had 6 squares of paper that we needed to cut into 2 equal parts and 4 equal parts. We also used Numicon to show how to make 6 using equal and unequal parts.

Kevin Carrot

Kevin Carrot  was the inspiration for our Christmas Big Write. The children enjoyed finding out about Kevin's adventures at Christmas time and writing a report about them. 

They then made their own Kevin Carrot out of felt, sewing them with care.




We enjoyed making Christingles and thinking about their meaning in the Christingle service.

Massive well done to Betsy, who won the Christmas card competition. We are so proud of you :)

Children In Need 2020

We've had a great day in Kingfisher class, doing lots of Children in Need themed activities.  In literacy, we learned about the history of Children In Need.  In maths, we cracked a Children In Need themed code breaker.  We also all got very sweaty whilst taking part in the Joe Wicks PE challenge.  In the afternoon, we enjoyed some mindfulness activities and eating our delicious cakes from the cake stall. Take a look at the slideshow below.



I can solve 1 and 2 step word problems.

Millie's Magnificent Maths Homework. recognising 3-D shapes.

Tuesday, 13th October (YR 3)

L.I - I can describe the properties of 3D shapes, including the property of prisms.

Tuesday, 13th October (YR 4)

L.I - Measure in metres, centimetres and millimetres, understanding and using the relationship between them.

Children estimated and measured the length of the playground in m and cm. We used metre sticks to measure the playground. It was 24m and 40cm. Can you convert this measurement to just metres, centimetres and millimetres?


E.g. 37 m and 30cm = 37.3 m = 373cm= 3730mm


Monday, 12th October


L.I. Measure in centimetres and millimetres, understand the relationship between them, convert lengths between both units and record centimetres using decimal notation.

Children measured around their hands using string. First they  carefully drew around their hand with fingers spread out. They estimated the total length of the line they had drawn.  Once they had written their estimate, they got some damp string and carefully placed it around their hand outline, cutting any excess string off and measured with a ruler using cm's and mm's.

Thursday, 8th October - I can write a poem about a peculiar pet.
