RRP have been enjoying their Easter week activities.🐣
Year 1 enjoyed learning about mass in Power Maths. The children enjoyed using real objects to compare weight. #PowerMaths #MakingLinks #Reflective
Year 3 explored magnetism this afternoon. They discovered objects around the classroom that were magnetic and investigated what happens when magnets attract and repel. #fmscience #courageous #enthusiasm
Chestnut Class have been reading the story 'Tico Tango'. This week they have made word mats to help when they are writing up the story. They drew pictures to help clarify words and brilliant adjectives. #ticotango
As part of their #PSHCE learning, 2VR have been discussing good and bad secrets and how they make us feel. #Makinglinks #empathy #oracy #confidence
Well done to Class 6VV who have won this week’s best class attendance #fmattendance #celebrate
Chestnut class have been learning about what money was like in the past. They went on a scavenger hunt to find information about the money and how much each coin would be worth now. #historyatthurnby
Yesterday, Year 3 had a great time enjoying green day. Mrs Stokes and Miss Orchard loved getting involved #enrichment #enthusiasm #courage #fun #reward #celebrate
We are proud to be part of @TMETrust. Look at all the brilliant activities and events that have taken place across the TMET schools.
3HW have been investigating reflective light in Science. We used a mirror to search for things behind us. #science #light #creative #tmet
Gardening Club have done a great job of repotting spider plants so that every class can have one. #fmgardeningclub #fmscience #fmenrichment 🪴
Year 1 are looking at Christian artefacts and learning about how they worship #fmre #fmyear1 #curiosity
3SS LOVED their Science experiment. We tested different surfaces which include sand, grass, road and carpet to see the effects of friction on them. Can you guess which surface had the most friction? 🤔
In the next Art lesson, 3SS looked at the artists Elaine Goodwin and Pietro Cavallini in depth. We discussed what their mosaics represented, shapes, lines, colours used etc. The children will use this key knowledge to help them plan and create their own mosaic.
3SS started their Art project where they will be creating their own Roman mosaic. In the first lesson, the children looked at what a mosaic is, how a mosaic is made and why Romans made them. Did you know the tiny gems used in mosaics are called tesserae? 🙂🔷⬛️
3SS have learnt how to use the grid method to multiply a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number, with exchange. The children answered a range of questions from fluency, reasoning and problem solving and they presented this beautifully in their books! ✖️
Saying thank you to our site manager Amiee for her hard work preparing for the health and safety audit!
Year 6 working really hard on writing an alternative ending to the boy in the striped pyjamas. #fmenglish

Year 3 had a fantastic time celebrating green day today! Mrs Stokes and Miss Orchard also enjoyed themselves!
During Castle Character time, scholars have been learning about the history and care of Afro textured hair and putting to use their head wrapping skills.
The headwraps are a symbolic expression of identity and representation of the culture and heritage of the African continent.
2VR have been exploring different seeds in #science. They have all dissected their own seed and correctly identified the parts of a seed. #curiosity #makinglinks #investigation
