Fire Safety Super Stars

It’s Shout Out time

In English we have been planning, creating and critiquing information texts.  We used these skills to design fire safety posters.


I was impressed with the choice of colours and clear information Darcy included.


Isabelle used her plan well, she then  put a lot of information into her poster, using a range of punctuation and conjunctions.


Ellis was really creative using himself to demonstrate Stop, Drop and Roll.


Paul was really proud of his background.  I was really impressed with his critique.  His  ‘I wonder’ was to add more information.


Great work again Superstars







Sew Fantastic!

Shout Out to Paul,


You may remember in the half term Paul made of pair of dinosaur underpants to link to our expedition.


Well, his talents don’t end there.  Here he is, scaling a pattern, cutting the fabric, pinning and sewing to create a pair of joggers.  How talented is that!


Amazing work Paul.





Year 1 Mathematicians

Our children have had great fun exploring measure in Year 1.  They have thought about height and length, they have compared measurements and used their hands and feet to measure.

They found objects at home or in the class that they were shorter than.



The children could order themselves (and us!) from tallest to shortest, giving clear sentences to show their understanding.




They could draw objects longer or shorter than their hands.


Great work everybody.





World Book Day

World Book Day will be celebrated in school and at home on Friday 5th March. We would love all children to get involved in the fun. This year, the theme of World Book Day will be ‘Books That Make You LOL’. We would like to invite all children to dress up as a character from a book that makes them laugh. There will be prizes up for grabs for the most creative efforts put into a costume.
There will be a ‘decorate a potato challenge’ which we invite everyone to have a go at. You can decorate a potato as a character from any book or even decorate several potatoes if you are making a scene from a book. We also will have a competition just for fun based on the TV show, ‘The Masked Singer’. Staff have hidden their identities behind books and you will be using the clues to discover who is behind the mask!
Vouchers will be emailed to all parents and carers for the World Book Day £1 books. These will take the place of the normal paper vouchers. Some shops are requesting paper copies of the vouchers so please check before spending the voucher. If you find you need a paper copy but do not have access to a printer, please let your child’s teacher know and they will print you a copy.
We can’t wait to see your costumes and celebrate with you!

I know we have been limited as to what we could do but I hope you have all enjoyed a break.


I’m looking forward to see you all again today, whether this is in school or online.


I also wanted to give a Shout Out to Ellis – who’s kept busy continuing his Expedition learning.  I’m praise that he has been a great role model including his sister in his adventures.




And a Shout Out to Khongkwan who has been writing her name, phonics and vowels… in Thai!



My last Shout Out goes to Darcy – look at his candle experiment.



Fabulous to see you engaging in your learning during the half term.


Great work everyone.



Happy Half Term Holidays from KS1

Hi Everyone,

The Crew in KS1 wanted to say …

…to all our fabulous children and parents.


It has been a ‘strange’ half term with some of our children working online and some in school.  But you have adapted and worked so well.  You have made us all super proud.

Over the last week we have been scientists exploring materials, this has included sorting materials, looking at the properties of materials – including burning them!  You have seen this work on the class blogs.

Many of you have enjoyed baking this week – I hope you really looked at how materials change when mixed and cooked!


In maths you were creative with the resources you used to help you.


Now I hope you all have a really well earned rest over the half term.  Let’s hope that next half term at some stage it is safe enough for us all to be back in the classroom together.

Keep safe everyone

KS1 Crew




Pride of Plover for 1/2C

Drum Roll Please…


My Pride of Plover this week is Isabelle, she has been on line every day completing all work to a really high standard.

Isabelle has completed lots of additional activities at home and just embraces her learning.


You absolute superstar.

Plover school sharing the love 💗

I am so proud of all of the children who contributed to the Santander ‘thank key workers’ valentines display. This is the display so far and I am sure you will all agree, it looks beautiful! Keep an eye out for the video of all the contributions, which will be coming very soon! Well done everyone!
-Miss Blackham


Fire! Fire!

As part of our Expedition we have been learning about the properties of materials.

Yesterday we investigated what happened to a range of materials when they were put next to a flame.

The children used fabulous words to describe what they saw including charring, melting, burning, flammable and inflammable.


It was fabulous to see Ellis and Paul’s photographs and work.

They have obviously been hard at work too!
