Learning to create frequency tables

At the start of this week we went outside to collect data about what transport was passing the school for Mr Burford. We discussed different ways that we could record this data, and decided that it would be best to write it down. We learnt how to create frequency tables and record the number using a tally. Each pupil […]


Sean is the star rider!

Sean did some fantastic riding on his horse, called Tom this week. He stretched his hands out to balance and scored a ‘goal’ by placing an object in a bucket. Well done Sean!

Angus and Taylor got their bronze certificates for 25 behaviour points this week. Well done boys!

We had to decide what equipment we needed and think about how we were going to answer the questions to solve the investigation. Here’s some photos […]

Last week Chelsea, Sean, Charlie, Billy and Max went with some mainstream pupils to visit Selborne. They put on their wellies and got in the river to find out more about rivers as part of our topic. In the afternoon they had a great time sketching some animals in the centre. Everyone said what a […]
