End of Spring Term

Dear Parents,

We have had a very productive end to the spring term and the Easter holidays have approached very quickly! Last week the children worked extremely well in their respective groups for the fundraising afternoon; organising themselves, bringing in all the required equipment and managing the stalls. We were really impressed with how seriously they undertook this activity.

In English the children finished off their Ultimate Explorers unit by creating hand written guides, complete with pictures, titles and blurbs, which have made a great display. They then moved on to a short unit where they were Word Detectives, looking at and investigation different spelling patterns and rules such as hyphens, homophones and synonyms.

In Maths the class worked on percentage word problems, putting all their learned percentage knowledge in to practice by solving problems and even writing their own. This week they looked at nets of 3D shapes.

In RE we completed our unit Sacrifice by looking at …

Day 1:

After a bright and early start, our first stop was the Staffordshire Regiment Museum.


 A huge thank you to the volunteers who do not normally work on a Monday, but who came in especially for us.  The museum staff had worked hard to make the visit particularly meaningful for the children and told us numerous facts about Harpenden and London boroughs during the war.


We tried on various British WWII uniforms:






















We learned about other safety items issued during WWII including helmets and various gas masks:
