Pizza Express, 2.10.18

We visited Pizza Express in Prestwich this week where we stretched dough, sprinkled cheese and took in the atmosphere of a busy restaurant. Each child took a pizza home, and so did the three adults!

Within our mathematic lessons, we have focused on time and place value. Each child is now able to confidently read and write seven digit numbers using concrete materials. We are very proud of the determination shown by everyone to master this.


Some of us have been problem solving as well as creating our own problems for peers – we know this skill will help us progress as mathematicians.



In the mere blink of an eye, we’re 5 weeks into the autumn term! Where has the time gone?


This half term has seen the children move into their penultimate year of primary school and each child has risen to the challenge with aplomb!


Our novel this half term is Street Child which centres around a young boy, Jim, who loses his family through poverty. We follow Jim on his journey through the dark, tumultuous Victorian times. This novel will stir emotions, raise questions and support the children’s knowledge of life in the Victorian era.


In our writing, we have used our novel to compose a setting description and character description.
