LKS2 Celebration of Learning

Year 3 and 4 have had a fantastic afternoon sharing our last two expeditions with parents and carers. It was lovely to be able to invite everyone back into school to share our learning. The children made us proud as always and we hope you enjoyed finding out what we have been learning about. Please take a look at the link below to download our amazing song or buy a CD at school.

Maths fun with lego

On Tuesday 3LS were set the challenge to find square numbers using only lego! They used their knowledge of times tables and found lots of square numbers. Well done! I wonder how many other times tables you could represent with lego? Could you make the 7 or 8 times tables?

LKS2 Celebration of Learning Postponed to Wednesday 20th July

Due to the heat, we are putting our Year 3 and 4 Celebration of Learning back by one day , so that hopefully it will be more comfortable for everyone in the Hall.

We look forward to seeing you at 2pm on Wednesday 20th July, to celebrate the Spring and Summer Expeditions and to share with you our wonderful charity song.

If you fancy a sneak peak, you can get the digital download here: but the CD with additional tracks will be available at the Celebration event – only Ā£3, all money going to the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust for the Polar Bear Fund.

Keeping Cool at School

3LS are enjoying a lovely peaceful and cool morning. Weā€™ve created some beautiful art work and are now relaxing in the shade with our books. Look out for our finished artwork later on!

Selling our CDs at the XP Climate Conference

Tonight was another proud moment for me as LKS2 Phase Leader. Five of our Year 3 and 4 children, with children from the other three XP primary schools, presented the story behind their Spring Expedition, “Why should we protect this beautiful planet?” at the Climate Conference organised by XP School’s Year 10 students.

It was a packed hall, but our children spoke with real confidence and got a great round of applause.

The evening was rounded off with the premiere of our charity song CD and video. The children then helped to sell the CDs. and I am pleased to say they sold very well and people were very impressed.

Best of all, this was a great rehearsal for next Tuesday, when we have our own Celebration of Learning at Plover – when you will also be able to buy the CD.

A big thank you to the parents and grandparents that came and supported their children at the event, it is much appreciated.

Meeting Miss Farrow

Today Y3 transitioned into Y4, and Crew 4F met their new teacher Miss Farrow. We played some ice breaker games, set expectations for the classroom environment and drew self portraits. Crew 4F had lots of fun getting to know one another!

Multiplication Investigations

Today 3LS have been using their knowledge of multiplication to investigate and solve word problems. How many people could share a pack of 12 biscuits? How many bikes or tricycles could there be if there are 24 wheels in total? I wonder how many possible answers you can find? Why not test your multiplication skills on

All the children were a credit to themselves and the school. A huge thank you to the parents volunteers for your cooperation and support!
