Hall of Fame

Madhu, Zach and Lexi have such a super attitude towards school that they went to Mrs Alford’s Hall of Fame this week. Well done!

There was great excitement this week when new books from the library van arrived in class. We thoroughly enjoyed opening the boxes and then spending time reading the books before sharing them out between the classes in Phase 3/4. We are looking forward to reading the books in class over the next few weeks.

Keeping with a reading theme, we were given the answers to some reading comprehension questions linked to our story, Jack and the Beanstalk. We had to work together to use clues in the answer the write the question!

This week our attendance was 97%, which wasn’t enough to earn a certificate this week.

Ready for writing dialogue between two characters next week, we have been practising a conversation between Jack and the old man.


This week’s superstars! Well done Matthew, Cezary, Jessica, Chisom, Serok and James.

We are enjoying exploring our work about magnets. This week, we have carried out an investigation using paperclips and we have experimented with iron filings to look at magnetic force.

In PE, we have been setting up a baseline challenge. We had to tally how many times we could lap the yard in 20 minutes. Enjoying more time moving in our Extraordinary Me sessions in an afternoon, we are hoping to improve our scores.

This week our attendance was 98.4%, which meant that we earned our first certificate!

Emerald won this week’s house points.

We have voted and now have School Council, Green Champions, Courtyard Caretakers and Enterprise representatives.


We have also been working hard to learn our story of Jack and the Beanstalk so that we can write our own versions, with changes, over the next few weeks.

In Maths, we have been continuing with our learning on place value of numbers to 1000. We have been using apparatus to explore 10/100 more or less than a 3-digit number.

Welcome to the first blog of the school year from class 3 Mo Farah. What a busy first week it has been!

Each class has created their own charter based on our school rule which is RESPECT: yourself, others and school.


We have enjoyed choosing new books in the library this week. We need to remember to read at least 4 times each week and to bring our book to school each day.

This week in Maths we have looking at place value. We have enjoyed using the base 10 and place value counters to represent different numbers.  

This week our attendance was 91%.

Amethyst got off to a good start by winning the first week of house points!
