This week some of Ares class have been completing their Bikeability Stage 1 and 2. On this course we learn how to ride a bike safely on the road. Not only did we have to learn how to ride our bikes on the road practically, we also had to revise a book called ‘Tales of the Road.’ This book contains signs that we have to learn and remember for when we are on the road and know when tested on them. We each received a certificate proving we completed the course.

“Bikeability was very fun, and interesting. I learnt a lot whilst completing the course, such as turning left and right at junctions,” commented Jessica.

“I enjoyed Bikeability as it teaches a lot about road safety that is important in everyday life, especially as we grow up,” explained Bailey. 


In French we played a game based around describing different characteristics about each other and guessing who each person was talking about. We also asked the question “Who is it?” in French, which is “Qu’est-ce?” This then allowed each person to describe someone in French. We have also been listening to French music in order to expand our vocabulary.

“The games we have played in French to practice our vocabulary have been fun and helped us to learn more about French,” Daisy quoted.


We have been playing various maths games relating to multiplication. One of our class favourite was Multiplication Bingo. We had to quickly work out different number sentences given to us by the teacher and circle our answers, first one to tick off all their number won. This game improved our mental multiplication and allowed us to have fun which we found helped us to improve quicker.

“Multiplication Bingo was very fun and I was able to win the game!” exclaimed Evan.

Maths homework links to in-class learning to allow the children to consolidate their work. Spellings are tested every week on Friday and children can choose whether to learn ‘Core’, ‘Challenge’ or ‘Extension’ words.
