Hornbeam Term 1

We have successfully written our own dilemma stories in English and even wrote a letter to Bruce Bogginton persuading him not to build an onion factory on our school field. Our final topic in English has been newspaper reports where we have written our own newspaper reports based on our Geography topic - Improving Greenway.

In Maths we have covered place value and addition and subtraction. The children have been enthusiastic with using the manipulatives and pictorial representations in order to support them in their calculations. We have also been working hard on our deeper learning and being able to explain our answers.

We have enjoyed looking at the positive and negative changes in Maidstone in Topic which has influenced our final decisions in improving Greenway. We created a survey as a class on Google Forms and completed them using the iPads. The final outcome for our DT project has been extremely successful.


The children have been challenged and shown resilience throughout the term and we hope to see this through to next term! Well done Hornbeam Class!

Be kind, be safe, be responsible and embrace challenge
