Our Learning Updates

Ares Class have worked extremely hard this week.

Within mathematics the theme has been statistics. We have learnt about mean, mode and medium. They were able to use these to solve problems with data. Within English lessons they have written amazing descriptive stories. They were given a story opener and picture as a stimulus. They continued the story using a range of sentence structures and punctuation for impact.  

Ares class are working brilliantly on their inquiry projects! Every class member of the class should be proud of the progress they have made on their projects. Every group has a unique way of presenting their inquiry. I am looking forward to seeing the final presentations! Next week is the final week working on these.


Monday is transfer morning. The children will be entering the school through the outside door for Zeus. They are allowed to bring a pencil case for this morning if they desire.

Please return the permission slips for the Sex and Relationships sessions by Tuesday 11th July.

Friday 14th July is the last swimming lesson of the year.

This week Ares class have started their Inquiry on Natural Disasters. The class completed research into the different types of natural disasters, and then selected one to focus on.

The class have now planned their inquiry for this half term. Their inquiry questions are fantastic! We are looking forward to presenting our work in the last week.

“ Why do volcanos erupt?”

“What caused the most deadly Tsunami? “

“What causes blizzards to occur?”

“How are volcanos formed?”


As the weather is getting warmer please remember to bring a water bottle to school. This should only contain water.
