Student Shout Outs


  Friday 3rd July

Good morning Year 5, a sneaky extra shout out from me, Mrs G Morgan, this morning. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of teaching the year 5 keyworker children in school. The amount of effort they put into their instructions on how to capture a dragon was unbelievable! They definitely deserve a shout out -and please look at how much quality writing they produced!

Work photographed is from:


Fred W

Abigail J

Harriet M


Tom C




 The children then completed two pages worth of maths work on multiplying decimals by 10, 100 and 1000 and Harriet, Fred and Louie all got 100% of their answers correct -Wow!

Also well done to Sadie, Abigail, Tom, Eva and Jacob for working exceptionally hard on their maths and almost got full marks too!

Final shoutout from me is to Sadie, she knew Pop Art stood for 'Popular art' and really tried hard to explain why this art movement was named as such. Well done!

See you next week, Mrs G Morgan

Finally, something very exciting has happened in the household of Lexy S (5RM)... they have got a new allotment! Lexy has been popping down to pick gooseberries and raspberries that were growing there (and eating them!). She has also been doing some clearing and weeding, and been picking some beautifully smelling lavender! We hope you continue to enjoy the allotment Lexy smiley


Have a lovely end to the week,


Mr Dinsley

Well done to everyone who have already started the "Times Table Rock Star Inter-Year Group Tournament"!


Mr Purdie has challenged you to show year 6 and 7 how AMAZING you all are at your times tables - so get rockin' and show them how it's done!


Well done to everyone who sent in work from Tuesday - some marvellous maths, Tuesday time-outs and melodious music going on! Great work, year 5! Also, a catch up on some perfect PE sent in on J2e- I think Mr Dinsley has his work cut out with your fantastic explanations!
