Take One Picture

This term the children were lucky enough to take part in the Take One Picture project.

We were given the picture of 'Men of the Docks' by George Bellows and were free to design and make any art work we felt inspired to from the picture.  The project is child lead and the children were interested in the boats and immigration. We linked this to our Roman theme and compared modes of transport.

We then studied the tutelas and insignias of Roman boats and decided to make our own from clay.

There are many times table songs on YouTube which can help children learn them off by heart.

Your child will be given a log in for Times Table Rockstars, which is a fun way to memories the tables and compete with their friends.

They will also be given a log in for RM Easimaths, where they can work through different mathematical questions and problems.


Please continue to read with your child on a regular basis. The reading record should be completed as often as possible and will be checked when they read with an adult at school. Children should read school books and anything else that they enjoy! The children will have the opportunity to visit the school library once a week too. Please make sure your child’s library book is back in school the following week so that they can return it and get a new one.
