In June 2020, we will be completing a national multiplication check. This is an online times-table test, assessing our knowledge of all times-tables up to 12 x 12.

Further information will be sent out for parents later in the year.

Don’t forget to keep practising at home – you can use Times-tables Rockstars/ I am Learning and any other online games/ apps.


We began the year focussing on developing a growth mindset.

We worked in pairs to change negative statements into positive ones, helping us to think positively about ourselves and our work.


In science, the children have been looking at ‘Teeth and Digestion’.

During the topic, we carried out an experiment to find out how teeth may be affected by different liquids, using eggs to represent teeth.

The children put the eggs into different liquids and recorded their observations each day. After 1 week, the children wrote a conclusion to describe what happened to each egg.
