We had a brilliant time at Stockport Air Raid Shelter. The children were fantastic representatives of Woodheys.

Here is a selection of some of our Spring 1 activities.  In maths, we have been working hard to find lots of ways to show our understanding and explain our learning.

In English, we have been writing diary entries from the point of view of William Beech from 'Goodnight, Mr Tom.'  We developed some excellent vocabulary to share our experiences, feelings and actions.

In history, the children have been engrossed in all things World War Two.  We have looked a wide range of sources of information, both primary and secondary, and discussed what they tell us and how reliable they are.

In maths, we have been trying to find all the possible strategies that could be used to solve a multiplication calculation. Many children have a different preferred approach and different methods will be more suited to some types of multiplication than others. The more strategies we know, the more likely we are to select the most efficient method.

READ ALL ABOUT IT!!  The children have been the most amazing journalists recently. They have uncovered some amazing stories, written scripts for news reports and published their very own news articles! have a look.

For our D and T topic this half term, we have designed and made Roman sandals.

On Wednesday, we had an amazing time getting active on our 'History Day'. We learned about where the Roman empire developed and how, over several centuries, their people travelled through Europe conquering a great many countries.  We found out about how the Roman army was structured and what made them such a success.  We made shields, helmets and swords in the morning and then, in the afternoon, went into the playground to recreate some of the Roman army's most effective battle formations.

Thank you to everyone for their amazing effort with costumes, books, art materials and practical support... it really made our day have impact!

We have been learning to retell a traditional tale with a twist. By learning the story with actions, it supports the children with the development of their sentence structures and punctuation.
