 Stone Age Day – 16th November

Our visitor from The Stone Age, Og, brought in a range of artefacts for us to examine. We learned so much about how the people of that period lived. We even had a go at shooting a woolly mammoth with a spear!
Using charcoal, dried clay and turmeric, we mixed them with oil to create our own Stone Age paint and used cotton buds to dab the design to make our own paintings.

We watched a video on different burial chambers and recreated our own burial mound using our classroom tables and chairs.
We all dressed up and had a fantastic day!

Home based learning

 TT Rockstars

We have set up a new scheme on TT Rockstars where the children will follow a set programme and automatically progress through levels. Whilst it may initially seem as though the children have gone back to the beginning, those children who know their times tables will quickly progress through the stages until they are at the correct level.


We do expect children to read regularly at home for 10 mins a day as this has a big impact on their learning.  Other  homework set is there to support and consolidate work in school.  We do not expect work at home to take longer than the maximum time given.  We understand that on occasion e.g. the family going away for the weekend that homework may not be completed on time.
