Apple Store Visit
The children were given the challenge to build a bridge and then to code the Sphero to travel over the bridge. I think it is fair to say that the two Apple guru’s were delighted to challenge the children in a more advanced task than is normal due to the skills of our children with coding. As you can see, much fun was had by all!
Year 2 - This week the children have worked on improving and adding to their dragon stories. They have written descriptive paragraphs about their dragon and setting, and then started creating their stories using a story mountain. There are apparently many interesting problems that dragons can have.
Mathematics has been all about adding 3 digit numbers together, using column addition. The children have been learning to carry numbers and are now able to add 3, and in some cases 4, digit numbers together.
We enjoyed our trip to the Apple store and were learning more about coding Jimi robots, spheros, and even R2-D2.
Year 1 - This week we have been looking closely at homes for other creatures. At woodland school the children were challenged to create a safe, warm home which would keep their animal warm for an extended amount of time. The animal they had to keep warm on a very blustery afternoon was a hot water bottle. The Fox team were the most successful and learnt that we need to insulate using small to large materials in layers.
We wrote woodland pledges this week thinking about how we can protect our beautiful forests. Year 1 were surprised to learn just how important trees are for our survival.

We are in the process of developing a new website. We are hoping to reveal our new site in January 2018.
The grid calendar is back up and running, although we are still trying to publish 2018-2019 term dates and remove the 2016-2017, however they are in the grid calendar.
Please help us maintain the very best relationships with our neighbours by not blocking or parking in their drives when dropping off or collecting your children.
Please do not park on the yellow chevrons directly in front of the school or across driveways for the safety of all of our children.
Could I ask that you ensure that waterproof trousers, Wellington boots and coats are brought into school on the relevant day (regardless of the forecast) so that we maximise our use of Richmond Park.
