Diamond and Quartz class had a fantastic time on Thursday 5th July. We started our trip off with a visit to the park and an ice-cream in the lovely, sunny weather. Then we went back and had lots of Pizza to fuel us for our action packed evening. We had a great time climbing, bouldering and exploring the caves. Some of us were a bit nervous to go into the caves because they were so small, but we all challenged ourselves and loved crawling through the narrow spaces. We continued out activities the next day and climbed an even higher wall, we were all very tired on the bus home but loved our sleepover at Gloucester Warehouse.
A day out at Warwick Castle! We had an amazing day exploring the castle and learning all about attack and defence.
This year, the children (and parents) made an incredible effort with an amazing array of costumes. We held a’Book in a Jar’ competition. The entries were so imaginative, and a child from each class won a book token. All week ‘Shelfies’ had been displayed around school (photographs of members of staff’s bookshelves), and the children had to guess who they belonged to. We revealed the owners in assembly. A great day celebrating the joy of books.
As part of our topic all about Mountains we visited ‘We the curious’ and learnt all about the water cycle.

Today, we all had a great time baking gluten free cupcakes.
In Quartz class we are rewarded a marble at the end of the day for a range of things including: good behaviour, being kind, great work and more.
During the beginning of the term, we reached the first reward in our marble jar and the children chose to have a baking day.
Just look how much fun we had!!
Quartz Class Achievements
06 February 2018
Just look at how many children in Quartz class have achieved a certificate in our 99 club this week.
There are also lots of children who have progressed in their score every week this term.
Well done!! I am so proud at how well the children are doing with their 99 club scores.
Remember of the half term to complete your MyMaths homework and also work on your times tables with TTRockstars.
'We the curious' trip to Bristol
06 February 2018
Last week we had a wonderful time visiting ‘we the curious’ as part of our topic on Mountains.
The children enjoyed learning all about the water cycle and hearing how important mountains are in this process.
We all watched in amazement as Mike showed us an experiment with dry ice, showing us how clouds are formed.
After our session on the water cycle, we all got to explore the rest of ‘we the curious’ which the children really enjoyed.
All in all it was a great day!!
05 January 2018
We hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas break.
This term our topic is called ‘Misty Mountain Sierra’. I will be handing out homework sheets to the children next week. The expectation is that the children complete one piece of homework every other week.
The children will also be given their usual spellings to learn. We have a spelling test every Tuesday morning. The children should have their spelling books in school on this day.
Don’t forget to read with your children as much as you can during the week and write a comment in their reading record book. Mrs Ward checks for signatures every Monday morning and moves the children along on our reading reward track. Mrs Ward also signs library books in and out on Wednesday mornings.
A celebration!! The children have achieved Reward One on their marble jar rewards. The children have chosen to have a ‘baking day’ as their reward.
Fun in the snow!!
12 December 2017
We were all excited to wake up on Sunday morning to snow!! Monday, many of us braved the conditions and made it into school. There was still lots of learning to take place, however; Mrs Barrett was very kind and allowed us some time to enjoy the snow. Just have a look at our picture. Miss Baillie even attempted to make a snowman!!
Tuesday 5th December 'David Walliams Day'
06 December 2017
In Quartz class this week, we had a whole day dedicated to ‘David Walliams’. The children enjoyed listening to his stories especially ‘Cruel Clarissa’. We played No No Noe’s ‘no’ game and even told a couple of jokes to each other. In the afternoon, we sat down with some popcorn and juice to watch ‘The boy in the dress’. All the children had a great day!! We are now all very busy writing our formal letters to David Walliams persuading him to visit our school. Fingers crossed!!
