Wonderful 1L!

Hello wonderful 1L!

I have been missing everyone else in 1L so much! I wish you had all been in my bubble at school, too!

I am so sad to say that our time together has come to an end and I will miss you all SOOO much!

Unfortunately, our year together was cut far too short and that makes me really sad. However, I am really happy that we got to do so many fun things when we were all altogether and these things still make me really smile. I thought I would share some of my favourite memories with you that cheer me up when I feel sad. Maybe you could share some of your memories by commenting on this post. What a great year we have. We certainly made the most of it. We were so busy!

Do you remember at the beginning of the year we visited the Safari Park and Dinosaur Forest? It was such a long way and took so long to get there as we got stuck behind an emergency on the motorway. Even though we had to wait for so long to get moving, you all behaved beautifully and were very patient. I remember lots of dancing on the coach! When we did arrive, you all certainly made the most of it! Can you remember all the animals and dinosaurs we spotted? It was a lovely day!

Do you remember all these steps?

We have been busy chefs this year. I loved cooking and baking with you all. Do you remember what we made in these photos?

We have had some great role play areas. Do you remember the vets? It was always so busy!

Christmas! My favourite time of the year! You all put on a fantastic show!

We had a party to celebrate our great show!

We have enjoyed walks in the park. You all look very wrapped up in this picture. It must have been Winter!

Dinosaurs! Your models were amazing!

Do you remember the egg drop? we had to make a container which would carry our eggs safely. Do you remember when some eggs went SPLAT! So much fun!

Ahhh the chicks. I loved looking after the chicks with you all. You were all so kind and gentle. Can you remember all of their names? Do you remember why Barney was so special?

Here is a message from Mrs Reeves:

Hi 1L.
As your year in year 1 comes to an end Iā€™d like to share one of my favourite memories with you all. I have so many, from our cooking sessions, to the Christmas performance, to seeing you all so proud of the hard work you produced. I have to say my favourite has to be our Christmas performance shared with 1B. You all worked so hard as a team. Your wonderful singing, and how you all performed your sign language to that beautiful song. It was amazing!
You have all achieved so much this year and you will all continue to shine in year 2. Thank you all for a wonderful year and the memories! Stay safe, love Ms Reeves x

Ahh Ahh Ahhhh!

Here is a message from Mrs Fitzpatrick:

1L, you have been a pleasure to be with for two years. One of my favourite memories is your enthusiasm for growing. Watching the flowers grow and getting so excited when a flower popped out. I will miss reading you stories, especially SUPERTATO. I miss working with you, but I look forward to seeing you at playtime for catch-ups. From Mrs Fitzpatrick

Here is a message from Miss Abbott:

I have enjoyed Year One this year, watching you grow.
One of my favourite memories is when we cooked eggs and how much you loved eating them, wanting more.
Another is how excited you all were when I came in on Monday to tell me about our hatched chicks.
I will miss what a caring class you are,all looking after each other.
Wishing you all the best in year 2 see you all in the playground
Love Ms Abbott

1L, have a fabulous time in Year 2 and please let us know about all the wonderful things you get up to!

Last but not least.. here are LOADS of photos to enjoy! What great memories!

Y4 Final Sharing Assembly

Good afternoon Year 4!

So it is time for our final sharing assembly of the year! A time to celebrate all the fantastic work you have done during your time in Year 4, both in school and at home.

The work you have sent over the last few months have really made all of us smile, and we are all very proud.

Have a safe and restful break over the summer, and we look forward to seeing you in September, when you return to Year 5.

Miss Ashby, Miss Simpson, Mr Bothick

Goodbye 4B!

Hello 4B!

I know it has been such a strange time, but you have reached the end of Year 4!

Despite the fact that we have not ended the year in the way we would have liked to, you are all BRILLIANT in the way that you have coped with everything that has been going on.

We did manage to have lots of fun times in school and I just wanted to let you know that all your hard work was really appreciated. I wish you all the best in Year 5.

Have an amazing summer and I can’t wait to say hello to you all in September when you are with Mr Greaves.

I’ll miss you all!

Mr Bothick

Good Luck 4S!

Dear Class,

We have had a weird but wonderful year and although we didn’t get to finish it together in class, I am so happy I got a chance to get to know each and every one of you in the first two terms.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for allowing me to be your teacher. I know Mr. Davis is super excited about teaching you all next year. I hope you have a fantastic summer and I look forward to seeing you all in September.

All the best, Ms. Simpson


Hello 3G!

Thank you so much for being such a brilliant, hard-working and fun class this year.

It’s such a shame that we didn’t spend the whole of the school year together but I have really happy memories of all of you. I can’t believe how much we packed in to the time that we had!

I think one of my favourite memories was walking and talking to you all about the amazing buildings and sights we saw next to the Thames, as we went to The Shard.

I also remember your perseverance and skill when you made the Victorian Clay houses. It wasn’t easy but you stuck at it and now we have a collection of beautiful artworks that children, staff and visitors will enjoy looking at for years!

What was your favourite memory? I hope you have a great summer and I know you are going to be a brilliant Year 4 class!

Mr Greaves

We read some great books together but I think my favourite was The Malamander. It was scary and exciting!
What characters can you spot?
3G love reading!
You are all such talented artists!
We did some great science investigations – can you remember what we were finding out here?
An amazing Christmas performance- I can still remember all the songs, can you?
What a view from The Shard!

Pinched from Ms Lynch! The jelly bean challenge!

I saw this on the Y6 blog and thought you might enjoy

this challenge after a shopping trip.

You will need:

A bag of jelly beans or mini marshmallows.

A packet of cocktail sticks

Jelly Bean Towers: Can you build a free standing tower than measures 10cm, 20cm, 30cm?

Jelly Bean Book Stand: Can you create a structure that is strong enough to hold a book placed on top of it?

Goodbye 4A! A farewell from Miss Ashby.

In September, we had grand plans for you this year. Little did we know that this was going to be a very strange year!

In some ways, it has been the most memorable year of our lives. In others, it has been one of the most challenging.

But one this is for sure: you have all worked hard and should be very proud of yourselves. We are all very proud of how far you have come this year. All the photos of you and the fabulous things you have done since March always make me smile – thank you! šŸ˜Š

I’m sad our year together was cut short so suddenly, and we didn’t get to finish it together, but I am so looking forward to seeing you in September as you go into Y5.

I know you will carry on being fantastic in Y5, and Ms Akitoye and you are lucky to have each other. I have loved being your teacher.

Have a wonderful, safe and relaxing summer break. Be kind, be thoughtful, be helpful.

Miss Ashby

Goodbye Nursery

Hi Nursery!

I’m so sad we didn’t get to finish our year together but hopefully you have made some amazing memories and are ready for the next stage of your lives.

I have put together some photos of our time at nursery.

Thanks for being a lovely class!

Enjoy the summer with your families.

We will miss you.

Mrs Collette, Mrs Ruegg, Mrs Williams and Miss Francis.


Y4 English – Wednesday

Good morning Year 4!

Today’s creative writing task is to tell the story of someone who really hates sunflowers and tries to get rid of them all.


One survives!

You could tell the story using 3rd person point of view (he/she/it/they), or you could tell the story from the point of view of the person who hates sunflowers, or even from the sole surviving sunflower – the choice is yours!
