So many things going on this week! We started the week with the Brandesburton Bake Off. There were so many fantastic entries with some really amazing ideas. A very well done if you took part in this. It has certainly provided much needed funds for non-fiction books in the school library.

Also this week saw the start of British Science Week. A big well done to Fred who won the whole school poster competition on the theme of Time. His entry will now be sent off to the National British Science Week competition. We have all been participating in some key events to celebrate science. On Tuesday we carried out an investigation to see how many towers of ten multi-link the children could make in two minutes. The highest amount was two towers as the multilink cubes were very tricky to click together! We will be comparing our results with other classes. Continuing the theme of time, we also investigated some questions such as ‘What if there was no night?’ and ‘What if there were no clocks?’ The children came up with some really creative ideas for this. Finally we spent sometime looking at and reading a selection of non-fiction STEM books that form part of the Ryal Society Young Peoples book prize finalists. Every year schools are invited to act as a judging panel and receive free books to keep in return for evaluating and giving opinions on them. We are lucky enough to have been chosen as a judging panel school for the last three years.



This week please use the website Topmarks to improve pace and accuracy with arithmetic. The link will take you to the Hit the Button game where you can practise a wide range of maths skills .


This will be out final week on learning and practising rules for suffixes. This week we are focusing on adding -ed, -ing, -er, -est and -y to words of one syllable ending in a single consonant after a single vowel.


This week, we had a little dip in our reading score. Only 75% of us read 3 times or more. For the final week, can we have one really big push and aim for 100%? Remember, it is fine to reads books of your own choosing from home and the children can write in their records as long as they write what happened in the story/book they read!

D&T week

Next week is design and technology week. We will be designing and making our own Punch and Judy style hand puppets. If any parents/grandparents are available to help with some sewing on Thursday and Friday afternoon, could you please let us know! We would really appreciate the extra hands!
