Tiger News!


During Week 5 of this Spring term, Tiger Class researched sketched, designed and built model birds. The project was organised by North Somerset schools and the winning model will go forward to a final competition in Bristol in March.

Only one team from Key Stage 2 can earn a place in the final. Before our Tiger team can get there, we must enter a Key Stage 2 'heat' on Monday 11th February at WVPS, and then the winning team from each class will have to be judged by the Dragons during the WVPS final on Tuesday 12th February!

We worked as teams and tried our best!


Tiger News!


During Autumn 2, Tiger Class celebrated History Day by focusing on World War 1.

In the morning, we got into groups and made World War 1 information sheets.

In the afternoon, we had a visit from Sam Upsall and his father. They brought in lots of objects connected to their grandfather's war experience. We even got to try on soldiers uniforms, web-packs and hold their guns.

We can't thank them enough - we had such a great time!

Tiger Topic!

This half term, our Topic is Building Materials – How is it made? ‘

This is an Art and Design Technology unit which will be linked to our fantasy-quest stories which will be based on our class novel: ‘The Firework-Maker’s Daughter’. Children will be asked to design and build a model of something which will help their story-character during their perilous journey across a fantasy landscape.

In addition, children will make sketches of their design and write instructions for creating the model.



Core Learning Skills! 

Our Core Learning skill is 'Becoming Better Learners'. We will be focusing on the skills needed to improve our own learning and developing strategies to overcome barriers to learning that we face, remaining focussed on a task, avoiding distractions and deciding which conditions help us to learn best. Children will understand that people learn in different ways and that there are different strategies to learning effectively. There is Core Learning Skills lesson each week and there are opportunities to practise our Core Learning Skills all week across the curriculum and during whole-school assemblies.


Tiger PE!

Our PE lessons are on Monday and Thursday, so please have your PE kit in school on these days. As the weather gets colder, trackies or leggings can help keep children warm. This term we will be doing Gymnastics.


Tiger Spelling!

Tigers will get their new spellings on Monday and they will be tested on Friday. Each student will receive between 5 and 10 spellings per week. In addition, students will practise their spellings each day during a Spelling Skittles session.

Tiger Home Learning Challenges!

Each half term, Tigers receive a Home Learning Challenge.

Home Learning Challenges aim to link school learning to home learning and provide an opportunity for parents and carers to share their child's school experience by supporting learning at home.

Each Home Learning Challenge will contain a mixture of Maths, English and Topic challenges, designed to enhance each student's learning experience.

In addition, Tiger students are expected to read for a minimum of 15 minutes each day. Please aim to support your child's development of reading - reading is the gateway to all learning - research shows that the more a student reads, the more successfully they can access the whole school curriculum.
