Our work- Spring Term: Well, this term wasn’t quite what we expected, but Agate class have done so well with their home learning about China.

In English, one of our topics was poetry to be entered into a competition to be part of a book. Your acrostic poems were amazing and I was blown away with your creativity.


A day in the life of teddy the cat


eddy likes to sing {meaow meaow ) all day long and he loves to play with his string , his fur makes him look like a cow.


ating is what he dose best and also he loves to rest , he lays everywhere and loves his special chair.


ig dig in the mud with his toes, what he’s digging for nobody knows, but it must be something good because he sniffs with his nose.


D on’t do that we say to teddy as he tackles poor little Freddy, oh no now poor little Freddy has a big eggy on his little heady.


Y ou better watch out because teddy has silly powers like knocking down mums flowers,

or running like a crap and it looks like he’s playing tag.

In maths, you blew me away with your multiplication and division skills.

Well done with all your home learning – you have made me very proud. I think we’ve learnt some extra lessons along the way, like how to stay motivated, the importance of keeping active and how to use zoom!

Our work- Autumn Term:

In maths, we have been learning about place value, addition and subtraction and beginning multiplication. We also covered money and addition with coins.


In English, we have learnt about Florence Nightingale as part of our Famous People topic and written a report on her life. We also covered poetry related to fireworks.We have learnt about lots of famous people in our Science lessons and History, focussing particularly on nurses that have changed the way hospitals are run.
