Our Second Trip to the Spinney

Posted by Mrs Tennant & Mr Saunders on Friday May 19, 2017 Under Uncategorized

We had another fantastic afternoon at the Spinney on Thursday. There was so much to see and do. Some children used different materials to make The Three Little Pigs houses, lots of children experimented with the coloured water and containers and some of us went on a ‘Creepy Crawly Hunt’ with Mr Beldon. Can you remember any of the mini-beasts we found? Who can remember what the toad did on Mr Beldons hand?

This week we have been using the Bee Bots.

We have been programming them to get to different parts of our Jack and the Beanstalk map. Can you remember how to program the Bee Bot?

We also used the Bee Bot app on the ipads to move the Bee Bot around the screen.

Click on the link and see if you can get the Bee Bot to the different letters.

Puzzle day

Posted by Mrs Tennant & Mr Saunders on Thursday Apr 27, 2017 Under Communication and Language, Maths

 Last Thursday and Friday the Happy Puzzle Company came into school to work with all the children on math-based puzzles and challenges. These planned activities helped to arm the children with the skills to work through real life challenges and situations, allowing them to respond with awareness, creativity and deliberate strategies, in order to achieve a positive outcome. It also helped them to become resilient and encourage them to persevere.


For More information on the activities the children under took or The Happy Puzzle Company please visit:


Here are some pictures of how RL got on:

Welcome Back!!!

Posted by Mrs Tennant & Mr Saunders on Friday Apr 21, 2017 Under Literacy


Welcome back everybody, We (Mrs Tennant and Mr Saunders) Hope you had a lovely break and are ready for the new term.


This term we will be looking at traditional tales. A traditional tale is a story that has been told and re-told for many years, and consequently, becomes a story that almost everyone knows. Traditional tales are also referred to as fairystories or fairy tales.


Can you tell Mrs Tennant or myself, what your favourite traditional tale is?


Ask your parents what their favourite traditional tale is/was?


We look forward to finding out what your favourites are.

Making Easter Nests

Posted by Mrs Tennant & Mr Saunders on Monday Mar 27, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Last week we made Easter Nests.
First we had to write a shopping list of ingredients that we needed to make the nests. Next Miss Gaijda and some very sensible children had to go to the shop with the shopping list to buy the ingredients.

Then we made the nests by melting the chocolate in the microwave and mixing the ingredients together before adding some mini eggs on top.
We hope you enjoyed eating them 🙂

Friction Experiment

Posted by Mrs Tennant & Mr Saunders on Wednesday Mar 22, 2017 Under Uncategorized

We wanted to find out which materials create the most friction and cause the car to slow down. We made sure it was a fair test by always having the ramp at the same height, not pushing the car but allowing it to fall naturally once released and ensuring we measured the distance the car traveled as it came to a natural stop. We tested foil, net, faux fur and artificial grass. Do you remember which one created the most friction and caused the car to slow down the most? Can you remember why?
