Tricky wool weaving

We made some decorations using wool and lolly sticks and weaving.

Taylor: ‘I loved it but I found it so tricky!’

Molly: ‘It was the best day ever’

Aidan: ‘I found it very hard’

We used resilience when we found it tricky and we used reflectiveness to write our evaluations.


IEP homework

Well done Joshua, for doing some great work towards your IEP target at home. Joshua combined coins to make the correct amount to buy a cake.


Marvellous measuring

Today in Maths we were practising our measuring skills. We made a playdough snake using water which we had to measure in a jug and flour which we had to measure on the scales. We thought carefully about what measuring equipment we would need. We learnt to use these words: volume, mass and length. We also thought about what units we were measuring in. Our snake had to be exactly 10cm long, so we drew a line on our playdough mats that was exactly 10 cm to help us.


Measures homework

Molly’s Mum emailed in these great photos of Molly doing some measuring at home – well done Molly!

‘We made pancakes on Saturday morning. Molly measured out in our scales 100g of plain flour and a sprinkle of salt, 300 ml milk in a measuring jug and mixed 2 eggs together to make the mixture. Molly poured her mixture into the frying pan & enjoyed her pancake with lemon & caster sugar!’


Joshua’s snow day

Well done Joshua for doing some great school work during the snow days! You look like you had a great time!



Snow day activities

As the school is closed today, please can you complete the following activities:

1. Draw some fractions in the snow or make some out of natural materials. Take a photo and email me!

2. Do some baking. Practise your measuring skills and read the scales on a jug or a set of scales.

3. Write some sentences about what you have done today.

4. Read your school reading book and practise handwriting and spellings.


Pancake Party!

All this week we have been learning about fractions, and today we used this knowledge to good effect when we had our pancake party!

We had to work out how many ingredients for the pancakes, and say how we wanted our pancake cut up, e.g. into halves or thirds.

We also practised some different pancake activities in our maths books, recognising some fractions and choosing some toppings.

Ashton told us: ‘Mrs Vernon-Smith is the best pancake maker because they’re the yummiest pancakes of all!’ Thank you Mrs Vernon-Smith and all the parents who came to help too!

Making bread

In English we have been learning how to write instructions. Firstly, we looked at sets of instructions and identified their key features. We learnt about imperative verbs and the importance of numbering our instructions. Then we followed a set of instructions to make a paper hat. Next, we wrote and followed some instructions for making slime! Finally, we wrote some instructions for making bread. We checked that our instructions were correct when we made our bread; some pupils realised they had missed out the equipment or one of the important stages in our instructions. We all were successful in making bread and enjoyed tasting it.


It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Yesterday morning we had a Christmas craft morning for of our class treat. We were really grateful to the parents that came to help us. We had a great time making snow globes, Christmas tree decorations, puppets and salt dough models. We also made some reindeer and snowmen last week. Have a wonderful Christmas!


Winchester Special Celebration

We always look forward to the special celebration each year, as it is a great chance to join with other schools and celebrate the Christmas story in the beautiful Winchester Cathedral. All the pupils made us very proud and performed their parts brilliantly. A special well done to Joshua, who did a fantastic reading.
