Milligan Class


Milligan have really enjoyed their Africa topic this term. They have used it as a stimulus to produce some wonderful stories about a naughty elephant, a lovely performance of an African themed song and some lovely artistic pictures of African animals and used craft to create their own South African flag. They’ve shared African stories in the new library, written some fantastic rhyming poems and not to mention designed and created their sensational African themed safaris.  I have been so pleased with their attitude and their desire to learn this term. Well done everybody!

Another thing that has to be mentioned was their class assembly. They all spoke brilliantly, so clearly and so confidently and it was a really lovely show case of all their hard work and commitment. I was very proud of them and so pleased that every child had a grown- up come to watch in the audience- I think that’s a school record! Thank you to all parents how made, bought and donated cakes. What a day to remember!

The children have really enjoyed focusing on rotation and estimation in maths this term and clockwise and anti-clockwise have really got them thinking about their left and right too! But I think the highlight for maths this term was our ‘mystery of the stolen daffodils day’ where the children, brilliantly acted as detectives to solve the case of the missing daffodils! They had to use their maths skills to eliminate suspects from the enquiry. Well done to Ollie for finding the daffodils…eventually!
