London day 3…

Possibly THREE blog installments for today - we've lots on and I'm squeezing in a quick blog while they shop. For those anxious parents - it's the Science Museum shop, not Harrods or Chanel - (sorry Miss Trute!)

Year 5’s on Lundy

I've caught up on my sleep now, so I thought some children, parents & community would like to see some of the photos of our residential. A great trip that saw the children navigating around the island, as well as cleaning, food prepping and working as a team.

Lundy… Day 1, 2 AND 3!

I dunno, I just pop to the pub for "15 burgers please" and my phone pops up with 120 emails and several texts. Technology can be a pain sometimes. What a full on trip, but brilliant trip. They're a cracking group and they are loving it! I'd post a photo of Alfred's birthday, but that takes upload time. Oh, and [...]

(Fake) SATs…

Whilst Year 6 had their final 'Fake-SATs' paper this morning, I had year 5 and went through some of the more tricky questions from yesterday's maths paper. This question actually started from a cubed number question where drawings make this a bit easier. Although, you've got to draw a cube, which is harder than you think! Here's one of the [...]

Level 1 had them all put through their paces out on the playground, starting, stopping swerving, emergency stopping and also trying to master riding with just one arm on the handlebar. Level 2 was much [...]

Year 5&6 Coordinates…

We reminded ourselves what coordinates were in our Booster Session this morning, but also how they develop through the years at school so that, by the time that children get to year 6, we're working out complex 4-figure coordinates in all four quadrants! Our whiteboard scribbles and worksheets mean almost nothing unless you were part of the session itself or [...]

Year 5 being adventurous on Lundy..

Year 5 will be writing their own blog entry for their residential, but here's a video of what they got up to on Lundy.

Lundy, part 2; The Whole Story!

We are Kind... We are Curious... We are Confident... We are Community... We are Adventurous... We are Ambitious...

Lundy, Day 1, part 1…

Woke up, long journey, excited kids, flat water, no dolphins, grumpy passengers ("children"), light house, stone stacking, skimming, beach cleaning, Lundy cabbages (and their beetles), church, games, settling in, choosing beds, table making, food chopping, cheese grating, pizza making... and quiet. I wish.
