More Certificates- Well done everyone!

Together we helped to create a fruits of the spirit design with bottle tops- ready to be our school grounds.

Lots of certificates over the last few weeks. Well done everyone!

Yesterday, we made sails to experiment with following our DT work looking at boats. Today, we tried out our designs to see which were the fastest with a hairdryer wind behind them!

A big well done to Ella and Jacob for achieving their 250 reads - Super reading!

This afternoon, we compared boat shapes and how many pennies these would hold with different materials. This is in preparation for designing our own boats.

Experiment looking at evaporation as part of learning about the water cycle

Well done to Theo for passing his Gold target times tables and Lilly-Faye for reaching her 100 reads.

Well done to these children who all learned their times tables targets during Half-Term and passed today: Ella H, Ella S, Coby and Owen G

Well done to our readers this week: Poppy - 100 reads, Liam & Lola - 150 reads and Teigan - 200 reads! Keep on reading.

Today in Maths, we started to learn about direction.  The children enjoyed doing this activity outside in the sunshine for part of the lesson and used collaboration to help instruct each other which direction to turn.  They had to tell each other to turn either a quarter, a half turn or three-quarter turn and then whether they had to turn in a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction.  Hopefully they all know their North, South, East and West now and have a fun exercise for homework to complete today.

Eoin's camp-out to fund raise

We are all very proud of Eoin who camped out in a tent in his garden for a whole month to raise money for Huntington's Disease.  Today Eoin brought in a trophy that his Aunty gave him as a reward.  Well done Eoin - what an amazing achievement!

Ben has completed his 55 club times tables in less than a minute!

This week’s super readers!

Today was NSPCC Numbers Day.....

.... and we had a visit from Willow the dog this morning : D

For another collaboration task the class were challenged to move over a distance on mats. All members of each group had to keep their feet on and if anyone touched the grass they all had to go back to the beginning. This was so much fun... especially to watch!

James completed his 55 Club Times Tables in under 1 minute!!

This week's Times Tables superstars!

Well done to Bernie and Willow who have received their 100 reads certificates.

This term we are exploring Collaboration. For our 1st task the class separated into 4 groups. Each group had a 1/4 of a painting, primary colour paints including black and white and a certain number of cotton buds. Their aim was to work collaboratively in their group to produce each section of the final piece. This was a very interesting challenge!

Our finished collaborative painting!

Yesterday in Science, we began investigating how water travels up the stem of a plant. Today, we looked at the results of our experiment.

Congratulations to the children who were awarded this week's Reading and Times Tables certificates.

We wish our children and families a very Happy Christmas and a hope to see you healthy and refreshed in the New Year.


During our free time on Party Day some of the class decided to build a Stone Age fortress with playing cards. Great to see that they've been inspired by this term's topic.

We also had another 6 children complete their 50 reads at home so congratulations to you too : )

Another hugely successful Times Tables week again. Congratulations to you all!

Turner's paintings are inspiring our Art this half term. We used sponges and paint to create our stormy seas.

Another amazing high scoring week with 17 children passing their Time Tables! We also had another 50 home reads certificate to hand out. We are very proud of you and it is lovely to see many others of you working so hard every week to improve your scores.

Our thoughtful Remembrance poems on display in the classroom

This morning, Otters class wrote a shared acrostic poem by collecting ideas from the children. We were so impressed that we wanted to share it with you. Afterwards, we all wrote our own individual poems too.

Today we have awarded certificates to 4 children who have reached 50 home reads since being in Otters Class. Well done to you - we are hoping to see a few more of you receive your certificates over the next couple of weeks : )

Congratulations to this week's children who have passed their Times Tables. Some of you have passed them every week - you know who you are!

In Science, we were looking at and investigating how different muscles move.

Otter Class Teacher and Teaching Assistants

Miss Marks has been creative with us this week too!!

A small selection of our amazing firework pictures created with chalk, a little sparkle and lots of enthusiasm ; )

This week we enjoyed making our own Stone Age animals. These were first designed in our sketchbooks and recreated into clay models. We will be evaluating this process as part of this term's Art.

Lovely to see everyone back in class today and another fabulous Times Tables result. Well done!

The teaching staff in Otters class all wish you a happy and safe half term.

See you all again on Monday 2nd November.

We were practicing pencil skills for an art assessment. Trying to make light and dark and thoughtfully investigating what we could make our pencils do.

Roald Dahl makes himself comfortable when he writes... so today we added slippers and blankets when we came to writing our stories. These are based on travelling through a portal like the character in the book Stone Age Boy.

In Science we were talking about, looking at and sorting different skeleton types.

We had another fantastic result with this week's Times Tables. Keep up your practice over half term everyone...

Willow visited us again today so we took the opportunity for a whole class photo : )

This week we had a record number of children pass their Times Tables! Congratulations to all 18 of you. Keep up your practice at home : )

Willow, therapy dog, came to see us again today and we thoroughly enjoyed walking her around the school grounds.

Wake and Shake! Otters were moving well this morning...
