05.12.2017 As part of a Design Technology week we are learning about gears and pulleys.  To help the us understand the complicated nature of gears Mr Quilter brought in his road bike so we could experience how gears help us speed up and slow down, The practical nature helped us understand the physics that is involved. We will apply these newly acquired skill to some simple machines as the week develops. Keep on eye on this page for updates as we go along.

A few people, who unfortunately could not make our reading meeting, have expressed an interest in the information handed out. In the useful resources or information box at the top of this page you will find a bookmark that was given out. When reading with your children, concentrating on these types of open questions and asking them to 'prove' using evidence from the text, will help the children to develop their understanding and thus increase their love of books.

28.09.2017 A few pictures of our time spent at Stow Maries Aerodrome with the Crucial Crew - workshops organised by Maldon District Council to help the children with key life skills such as: road and fire safety, first aid, being responsible when out and also alcohol awareness.

26.09.2017 The children have been learning about Darwin's Theory of Evolution this week and how only the fittest survive. Natural selection will play a huge part in our English and Science this term so please discuss this with the children. They also wanted a link on the website so they could play the game at home that we were using in school. Click here for the Darwin Evolution game.

 05.09.2017 During the first week back, we explored a variety of life skills topics ranging from working on our mind set to exploring our school motto. One of the subjects we covered was getting across a strong anti-bullying message. We used role play to show and experience empathy. This allowed us to be really powerful in getting our messages across.
