AJ’s amazing creation of the Titanic!

Huge well done AJ on your latest homework creation this week! I’m so impressed by the amount of detail that your Titanic has and also very proud of all of your hard work! It must have taken you ages! This definitely deserves 50 housepoints!!

Keep it up and let’s see what you can create next!

Amazing Homework!

Huge well done to Emily for producing this beautiful painting of a volcanic eruption!

This is our first piece of homework for 2019 and it’s certainly set the bar high. The painting is now being show cased in our volcano area

I wonder who will be next to have their homework on the wall of fame?

Hook week- Painting with watercolours

Class 11 have continued to create some amazing pieces of artwork today for our new theme, focussing on Tsunamis.

The children carefully used watercolours to paint a beach scene practising their brush strokes and blending skills.

The finished pictures are absolutely stunning, and I was so proud by how much attention to detail you made to ensure that you mixed each of the colours “just right”. We have got some budding artists within our class!

Well done!

Volcano making- Family Learning

What a great (and slightly messy/sticky) afternoon for our family learning today!

The children and their grown ups worked great together to create their own volcanoes in readiness for our explosive science experiment later on in the term. They used the very technical ‘papier-mâché method’ to do this, which took great patience and skill. Our classroom was full of Can Do Colin’s! Next step now, is to get the paint brushes out and totally transform their image!

Huge thank you to the much appreciated support from our parents- none of it would be possible without you. Also, thank you to Mrs Hardman for leading the afternoon, it looked great!

Today was the start of our new theme journey so the children have started off strong making various craft animals to go in our Arctic area, followed on by working collaboratively to create their own fact files on the different animals ready to go up on display in one of our many areas within the classroom.

I’m so excited to see what we can create next!

Well done guys!

Why are you running for your life?


Welcome back Class 11!

What a great start we’ve had to our new theme today!

In Literacy, the children have worked incredibly together to make predictions on their new book “Escape from Pompeii”. In their groups, the children were given different pieces of the front cover and were asked to gather their ideas on what each piece might be about, what it tells us and why. Every time, a little bit more of the front cover was revealed until finally, they were able to uncover our book and its title!

I am extremely impressed with their attitudes towards their learning today and how they have just thrown themselves in to each activity!

Well done everybody! Let’s see what tomorrow brings!

Merry Christmas Class 11!

We have felt all the feels this term- excitement, sadness, feeling proud and perhaps even confusion at times, particularly during assessment week- but what a term it has been!

Despite only joining Class 11 half way through this term, I have been totally blown away by each and every one of the children. I am in awe of how they support and care for each other both academically and emotionally, as well as also being there for me too at times.

I hope that you all have a wonderful and merry Christmas, with lots of rest so that you are raring to go, ready for our new theme in the new year.

See you soon,

Miss Laing


Let’s party!

We’ve had so much fun this afternoon getting festive in our class party. We danced, played games and ate delicious food!

Huge thank you to everyone that contributed to our party food.
