    Last week we had a video call from Batman! He set us a maths challenge - to split into two groups and find out who was the tallest and smallest in each group. We used our measuring skills and ordered ourselves by height to find the answer. These people then became Batman's secret agents to help him save the world!

  • You are invited to our sponsored bike ride!

    Published 24/11/17, by Alice Baker

    Over the last couple of weeks we have be critiquing work and discussing how we could improve it. Using this knowledge we independently wrote our own letters to invite family and friends to our sponsored bike ride. We then used our critiquing skills again to decide how we could make our invitations even better and during a 'Big Write' we wrote a wonderfully improved invitation to our family and friends. Some very impressive work. Well done Discovery!

    Our sponsored bike ride will take place on Friday 1st December at 9.30am in the playground.

  • Anti-bullying week

    Published 24/11/17, by Alice Baker

    During anti-bullying week we spoke about what bullying is and what to do if you or someone you know is being bullied. We answered the question, 'How can we stop bullying?' and had a discussion about what makes a good friend and what makes a not so good friend and why. . Tilly said we should "tell the person to stop!" if we don't like what they are doing and if they don't stop Orla said that we should "tell the teacher." Layla said that we should "respect each other." Using this knowledge we created posters to promote anti-bullying.
