Year 3 trip to Celtic Harmony Camp - Wednesday 23rd October 2019

On Wednesday, we went on a trip to Celtic Harmony Camp, near Hertford. First, we learned how to grind wheat into flour using a quern stone and visited a herb garden to find out what herbs were used hundreds of years ago. After enjoying our lunch in the roundhouse, we used a weighted loom and shuttle to weave some clothes. We twisted string to make bracelets and dyed them in crushed plants to make them colourful. We traded our coins and bought some items from the shop. It was an exciting experience and we would like to thank the adult helpers for coming with us.

 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.
