The end of term 1 already!

Well it’s hard to believe that we have reached the end of term 1 but what a lot we have done in those six and a half weeks.

We completed our ‘hills’ in geography and art –

We now recognise many of the symbols on an ordinance survey map, including contour lines and how they show the height of hills.

We also completed power point slides to promote things to do and see around Woodborough.


We have been working very hard on our times tables. We have all used Times Tables Rock Stars and have all shown great improvement in recall of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We now have to work on knowing them inside out – division and with missing numbers. If we stop and think we all know how to solve these calculations now. The Multiplication Awards are very challenging and include very tricky questions. Congratulations to the six pupils in Cherry Class that achieved their Bronze Multiplication Award and then  a special mention to the three who went on to achieve their Super Bronze too. Well done!

On the final day of term, Mercury celebrated their House Point Reward with a very special arts and craft treat following on from an amazingly inspiring Assembly by the Kids Tusk Force. Thank you to Tabitha for introducing the school to this wonderful charity. (pictures to follow and on the school blog and Twitter)

We also had to say goodbye to Sofia, who is going back to Australia with her family. We will miss you. Please keep in touch and keep up to date with all that is happening in Cherry Class here!

I hope everyone has a very safe and happy holiday and I will see you all on Monday 30th October for the start of term 2. Our new topic is ‘The Ancient Egyptians’ and don’t forget that the second Tuesday is our Egyptian Day!
