Please look at the link below for help with using TT Rockstars at home. Your child has their username and password in their reading record. I’ve set the tables to concentrate on the 2, 5 and 10 times tables for the next few weeks. Please let me know if you’re having any problems getting on.
What a brilliant start to year 2 we have had! I am so proud of how well the children have settled into Chaffinches and how hard they have been working. We had our Wow day on Wednesday to launch our topic for this half term. We will be learning all about how we can ‘Save the planet’ and looking at pesky plastics. As part of our wow day we decorated some CD fish and I set the children a scrap challenge to build something out of items from the scrap store play pod. We ended up with three cars and a hospital. Look at the pictures to see if you can spot which are which.

All of the Year 6 children have already had farewell letters from Mr Wirth and from me so I’m not going to repeat myself too much! It has been a real pleasure to work with you and I’m looking forward to seeing you all again before too long. I just wanted to share a couple of films before the summer holidays start.
Firstly, you have all had a DVD which includes the Lip Sync Video but I love it so much that I have decided to share it with everyone else:
Secondly, on Friday afternoon, we were treated to a performance by ‘Lockdown’, our 2020 school band. Somehow, with severely limited rehearsal time, they managed to put on a fantastic show. What an amazing end to a very strange term!
Thank you to the Y6 children for being so great and to their families for your support, kind messages and hard work over the last few months!
We have loved learning about mini-beasts this half-term and what a way to finish our topic, by building a Bug Hotel in our forest. We hope that the mini-beasts around have a lovely Summer in our Bug Hotel!
Thank you to Honeybees; you have been a pleasure to teach and work with. Have a lovely Summer break!
I thought I would share some of our photos from the time we had together. It did come to an abrupt end, but we had some great times. It has made me smile putting this together, so I’m sure it will make you smile too.
A HUGE thankyou for all working hard, and digging deep at this strange time.
What an incredible effort! We have been overwhelmed with pictures and scores from all of our fantastic children taking part at home. Very well done everyone! I am SO proud of our wonderful school community.
After counting all of the scores from home and school, this year’s Sports Day champions are…
