One Childhood, One Chance

Week beginning Monday 12th June 2023 Team Indigo and Team Royal


What a fantastic week we have had in Team Indigo and Team Royal, take a look at what we have been up to this week….


This week in maths we have been looking at statistics and how we represent data in different ways. We started the week with collecting the information on what our favourite colour and pet was and put this into a tally chart. We then made a bar chart to represent our data. We have also looked at pictograms, Carroll diagrams and Venn diagrams.


This week in English we have written our very own sequel to Grace and Family by Mary Hoffman. We told the story of what happened when Grace visited Gambia for a second time and went on a safari trip. The children watched a video of a safari in Gambia and got some wonderful inspiration for their own stories. Please find the link below:

We focused on sentence openers, and included exciting adjectives in a list, verbs and adverbs to describe the journey to the safari. The children have written some wonderful pieces of writing we are so proud of them all!

Guided Reading

This week in guided reading we created a story map to summarise what happened in the book Grace and Family by Mary Hoffman. We looked at learning to make inferences and used the book to answer the questions below.


Thematic Curriculum

This week we started our art part for out thematic curriculum Ready Steady Sow and Grow. We looked at two artists Vicki Rawlins and Henri Rousseau they both use natural resources to create wonderful artwork. We took inspiration from Vicki Rawlins and created our very own natural self-portraits. Take a look at our fantastic temporary artwork!


Later in the week we became scientists! We looked at what a plant needs to be able to grow and how they stay healthy. We had to complete the sentences below and then we wrote our own sentences explaining why it was so important for the plant.


Love 2 Learn

This week for your love to learn we would love for you to complete an AR quiz. You could choose a book at home or from the library and see if there is a quiz you can do!

Warmer Weather

Please could you ensure that children have sunscreen on before coming to school and if they bring it with them, are confident in applying it thoroughly to themselves (we are not allowed to). Please could children also bring sun-hats and a water bottle to school during the warmer weather.

Sports Day (Copied from the sports day letter)

After a successful Viking Games at the end of last term, it is time to celebrate… SPORTS DAY! To commemorate the Women’s World Cup 2023, each class Team will represent a country that will be present in the competition; our Celebration of Sport will take place over two days on the Key Stage Two playground and field: Wednesday 5th July – Reception and Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) from 9:15 Monday 10th July – Key Stage 2 (Years 3 - 6) from 9:15 Children will be encouraged to wear brightly coloured clothing (any colour) or their normal PE kit. They will wear this to school and keep it on all day. If the weather is forecast to be hot and sunny, please remember water bottles, hats and sun cream. After registration at normal times, children will walk up to the Key Stage Two playground / field. Feel free to cheer as the classes are announced! Children will stay with their classes and will take part in a carousel of activities, applying the skills they have learnt this year in their PE lessons to the competition for their House Teams. They will move through each numbered event in order. At the end of the carousel of activities, children will congregate in their classes in sections on the field. There will then be an opportunity for sprinting races for each year group for both boys and girls to find out the fastest runners in that year. Spectators will be welcome to assemble on the edge of the field to watch and cheer. This year, we would like to continue our Leavers’ Race where children in Year Six will participate in a fun Chilton Challenge, we like to think it’s a secret but they know what’s coming….. and will therefore need a change of clothing and a towel! We will then move over to the playground where awards will be given. This year, staff will be looking out for children who have demonstrated the School Games values (Self belief, Determination, Honesty, Team Work, Passion and Respect) and special awards will be given out to those children who have demonstrated them. The Sports Day Cup will also be awarded to the winning House after which the children will head off back to class. We anticipate the morning being finished by 12:00 at the latest.
