In Literacy this week we will be continuing to look at the book ‘Millions’ to coincide with the launch of our new topic ‘If I Ruled the World’. As we begin to really get to know the characters we will begin to consider how we can make predictions about the book based upon what we already know. We look for clues the author has hidden in the text and combine these with our knowledge of other books in the same genre.


Blog, publish, informal, edit, open-ended, secure


In Maths this week we will be looking at data handling. This will involve the revision of line graphs, bar charts, pictograms, venn diagrams and pie charts. We will look at how to interpret the results of the graphs and how to accurately draw our own. We will finish the week with an assessment to find out how much we have learned so far this term so the children can decide upon their own areas for improvement.


Polyhedron, vertex, vertices, edge, face, parallel, perpendicular, cross section, equivalent, numerator, denominator, cancel, common factor


This week is the third week of our exciting new topic ‘If I Ruled the World’. We will be continuing to look at the profound questions that we considered in our Entry Point. We will continue to look at issues that have no clear answers and discuss how to weigh up evidence to come up with our own opinions. We will also use our deep thinking to inspire our artwork based on using digital media to create a collage.


Reflection, skills, team work, assess, develop, explain


This week we will be looking again at e-Safety, further helping the children understand how to be safe when online and how to control their own profile on the internet. We will also look at how to make safe searches and how to respond if something inapropriat is encountered.


eSafety, responsible, aware, choices


This week the children will be continuing to discuss safe play and sensible choices on the playground. We will be discussing how to resolve conflict peacefully and will continue to take the children outside to play some new playground games. This will encourage the children to take turns and socialise in a safe and enjoyable environment. 


Peaceful problem solving, safe play, sensible choices, behavior, expectations

Kunst met een grote K
De Stip

De leerlingen van KS2 werken als ware artiesten aan hun stipgedichten en kunstige stippen. Alles mag en alles kan in het kader van de vrije expressie en zo lang het de taal verrijkt!

Op dinsdag 16 mei brengen we een bezoek aan de tentoonstelling van Peter Riezebos. De leerlingen krijgen les over kunstbeschouwing: ‘Kijken naar Kunst met een grote K’. Peter leidt ons zelf rond en de leerlingen krijgen zowel inhoudelijke als artistieke opdrachten.

Year 5 en 6 werken ook nog aan de afronding van hun kunstzinnige verhalen, passend bij een kunstwerk van een Belgische of Nederlandse kunstenaar. Magritte en Van Gogh zijn de grote favorieten.

Zeer binnenkort (afhankelijk van het afronden van de kunstwerken, verhalen en gedichten) zijn alle ouders van harte welkom op de opening van onze kunstzinnige expositie. Informatie volgt!
