Autumn Term

Friday 25th September:

All the children have worked brilliantly on column addition this week in Maths. We have learnt to place any carried digits above the answer line, which was a new method, ready for Year 6! We have also built up to writing our own conversations in English, using all the speech rules we have learnt. To end the week, we have had Stand Up Derbyshire Day were we have taken part in fitness and mindfulness activities as well completing a pledge of how we can be active. 


Well done to our first 'Cheerful Cheetah' Cohen, for gaining the REACH certificate. Mrs Houseman will be uploading these each week on the school website, so please take a look. 


Please also take a look at the attached document below, which provides more detail about the progress reports given out today. 


Homework this week is reading, spellings, times tables and an online task. 


Hope you all have a great weekend. 

Friday 18th September:

Over the week, we have begun learning about animals in Science, where we classified different types of vertebrate animals. We enjoyed thinking about what makes you, you in PSHE and even practised different rolls and moves in gymnastics. Fantastic work Cheetah Class! 


Information about Level 1 bikeability is on the 'Bikeability' page under the children tab, please take a look and fill out the consent form if you would like your child to take part this year. 


Homework this week is times tables, reading, spellings and a My Maths activity. 


See you again on Monday. 


Friday 11th September:

Well done for everyone for making it to the end of our first week! I have really enjoyed getting to know everyone in Cheetah Class and look forward to getting to know everyone more in the coming weeks. This week has been a busy week getting to know the new routines, completing assessments and enjoying REACH week. For REACH week we have made placemats, positive message cards and leaves for an achievement tree alongside looking in our school rules and values. Assessments have now all been completed and we will be sending out a short summary in a couple of weeks time to let you know how you can be helping your child.


Homework this week is reading, spellings and a TT Rockstar battle.


Have a lovely weekend.
