Geography lessons


Tigers (Y1 & Y2) have been showing off their new Atlas skills during our Geography lessons this week.

Number Day

Today, children took part in Number Day.

All the children were placed in their sport’s day houses for the day and rotated around four different maths related activities in each class.

In Panda Class, children learnt how to complete Sudoku puzzles using colour and shapes to help their understanding, while in Tiger Class they played bingo and used the laptops to access x tables rock stars to work on their x tables. In Rhino class, they played board games to work on their number skills and calculations and in Jaguar Class, children played games including a musical chairs style fitness activity involving number as well as calculation games using positive and negative numbers.

It was a great day and it was so nice to see our older children being able to support and encourage our younger children. We would definitely like to do something like this again. Thank you to all staff and teaching assistants for helping to organise such a successful day.

Thank you also to all parents for helping the children dress so creatively. I think the children have had a great day!


Gymnastics – Tiger class

The pupils in Tiger class were developing their balances in gymnastics today. They were working on developing poise, accuracy and body position.

Carol Concert at Myddle Church 11th Dec 6-6:45pm- singers needed from Tiger Class

Myddle School pupils have been invited to sing at a concert in Myddle Church on 11th December being held by The Phoenix Singers Choir of Shrewsbury.

‘A Christmas concert featuring settings of O magnum mysterium by several composers interspersed with popular carols for choir and audience. With pupils from Myddle Primary School.’

All the children have been learning carols with Mrs White during music, so any of them are welcome to attend and form a choir for the evening, where I believe we will sing one or two before the Phoenix Singers.

Children would need to arrive at the church for 5:45 for a 6pm start, wearing school uniform (and little tinsel if they wish).

If you want to stay and watch the concert, it sounds like a lovely program, with carols for the audience to join in with. It is a ticketed event to raise money for our church and they can be purchased from the Phoenix Singers directly. I believe they are offering a discount to Myddle parents, so please ask about this when you contact them. We would like to invite pupils from Tiger Class to this event . Letters will be sent home on Monday, 4th December, with full details and consent slip to return.

Many thanks

The Gunpowder Plot

We have now finished our first History Topic – The Gunpowder Plot – with an excellent re-enactment of the main events. It was very good!

From next week, we will move on to our next Topic: a much more light-hearted “Toys through History”, which will link nicely with the upcoming festive season.

Tiger Class update – 6th October 2023

What a week we have had in Tiger Class!
From our excellent performance at the Harvest Festival on Tuesday to our special assembly with PC harper yesterday, it was very busy indeed.

All children have completed all our initial assessment papers, and parents will be informed of their results and any other important individual updates in the upcoming parent evening meetings.

Our Stars of the Week were:
Year 1: Lilly
Year 2: Mylah

Next week we are starting a new Literacy unit based on the book “Weirdo”, by Zadie Smith, and some selected children will be going to Shrewsbury Town Football Club for a Football Festival morning on Friday.

Have a great weekend and don’t forget those Homework books on Monday.

Tiger Class update

This week, we are embedding our routines in Class and finishing off the first few units of work.

Both year groups are finishing their first Maths unit (Number and Place Value), and will start work on the next topic (Addition and Subtraction) next week. Their homework will reflect that.

We are also fully engrossed in the Gunpowder Plot History topic, so expect children talking about explosives for the next few weeks.

They have also been busy learning the songs for our Harvest service next week.

In English, we have finished out work with “Pumpkin Soup” and “The Three Little Pigs” and will have a focus on Grammar and Spelling for the next week, before starting on our next Class book.

Hope this information is useful.

Please let me know if you have any queries,
