Our English learning this week has involved using the present perfect tense. We took sections of The Tortoise and the Hare story in the simple past and changed them into the present perfect. Take a look at our freeze frames that we used to develop our ideas for writing.

In Science we improved our knowledge about nutrients and developed our teamwork skills. In groups, the children looked at what nutrients give to our body and they then presented what they had learned.

On Tuesday the children met Corrado who will be coming into year 3 to teach the children Italian once a week. In Maths the children have worked hard on reinforcing their understanding of counting on in ones, tens, hundreds and back in ones, tens and hundreds. The children have played many games to assist them in their understanding.


In our history this week the children have looked at the structure of the Egyptian society and wrote about the role of the vizier, the chief treasurer and the general of armies who were the important officials who carried out the orders of the Pharaohs.

In art, the children looked at ‘exaggeration’ using the many pictures created by Quentin Blake as inspiration.  I was bowled away by their artistic skills in this task.

Well done to the children who took part in the Golf competition this week at the Furzefield.  They wore their medals with such pride.

Mr Gavin Nicola, our guitar teacher, also wanted to let all parents know that he has spaces available if your child is interested in taking up guitar as a musical instrument. He led a concert this week and the children listened attentively and took part with such enthusiasm. He has asked that if you are interested to get in touch with the school office and he would get back in touch with you.

Have a restful weekend.
