Rhino class update

Dear Rhino parents,

We just wanted to let you know that Miss Beauchamp is going to continue teaching Rhino class up until half term. Thank-you for your ongoing understanding.

Swimming Sessions Start – 26th April

Dear Parent/Carer

Just a quick reminder that the swimming sessions start tomorrow, Wednesday, 26th April.

Please ensure you send your child’s swimming kit with them, school do NOT have any spare kit which they can lend. Please can we also ask that the girls don’t wear tights on this day as it is a “challenge” for them to get dressed again following their session. Can we also ask that the girls have their hair tied up and that no one brings any aerosols.

If your child has any goggles they can bring them,  although it is not a necessity.

If you have any questions please give school a bell on 01939 290834

Rhino Class – important update

We just wanted to let Rhino class and families know that Miss Beauchamp is going to be teaching the class for 2 weeks from 20th April. The class are very familiar with Miss Beauchamp as she already has them two days a week, so this will keep the learning and routines very consistent for them. Mr Glover needs to take some time at home to support his wife who is having a major operation for this period of time. I know you will join me to wish him and his wife all the best with the operation and her on-going treatment for breast cancer.

Using Turtle Academy

Today Rhino class have been learning to code using a programme called Turtle Academy. The children had to follow a series of lessons in order to learn how to draw simple and complex shapes. The further they go through the lessons, the more complex the shapes they can draw. They can even learn how to programme the computer to draw shapes with just one command. They really enjoyed doing this and worked really hard during the lesson.

Design Technology and Maths

Today, children in Rhino class have been very busy!

They have been using the laptops to help practise their x tables. The children love computer games, so using games and challenges is a great way to help them practise and they also like competing against each other, sharing their improvements and achievements.

The class have also been busy in the kitchen, making Pesto as part of their Design Technology work with Mrs Harris. The children worked in small groups to select and mix the ingredients and filled the corridor with most amazing aroma!

Here a few photos from today:


World Book Day

Wow… What a great day we’ve had in class today. Not only did the children look great, but the spoons they had made were just amazing. They had great fun sharing what they made and also discussing their favourite books.

Let’s Dance!

Children in Rhino class are really enjoying their dance lessons. What they manage to do in few lessons is amazing!
