Summer Term 1

Week 1

The Gruffalos had a ball reading and acting out the story of "The Sneetches" by Dr Seuss. The book has a strong message about equality for all and we will continue to look at these themes throughout our topic of "People Who Have Positively Changed the World"

The Gruffalos were busy in maths today estimating and measuring if objects were shorter or longer than 1 metre. Please ask your child, "How many cms are in 1m?"

Here is a great BBC game linked to our topic on people who have changed the world for the better. Please ask your children about Ruby Bridges, Rosa Parks, Emmeline Pankhurst and Nelson Mandela.

Well done this week's award winners!

Week 2

This term we are practising hurdling, hockey and football skills. Furthermore, we have 20 heart pounding minutes with Amy from Dazel Dance. Well done Gruffalos for giving your all!

Here are some of the books we will read (or have already!) on the topic of "People who have positively changed the world". Please ask your child about them as they are all superb, powerful and fascinating.

This term we will be learning about inspirational people from all over the world. Please brush up your geography knowledge with the "Seven Continents Song!"

Well done this week's award winners!

Week 3


The Gruffalos all contributed to the painting of "Tennyson Ted" our children's hospital bear which we fundraised for. The bear will have its own garden soon and you will be able to have a good look for yourselves. Also thank you Miss Green for an amazing job painting our unique Walkley design.

This week we started learning how to play the glockenspiel with Miss Burge from the Sheffield Music Hub. Well done everyone for finding B, A and G to play "Hot cross buns!"

Well done this week's award winners!

We have almost finished a fantastic chapter book called "The Invention of Hugo Cabret". It is a story set in 1930s Paris and is about a boy who lives in a train station fixing its clocks, owns a mysterious "automaton" and has lots of secrets. Please ask your child about this wonderful story which is filled with super illustrations as well as thrilling descriptions.
