May Week 2

Friday 13th May

Year 6 SATs

We are always being amazed by our Livingstone pupils and never more so than this week when Year 6 completed their SATs. After two years of disruption and a mountain of work to complete, you would have expected some nerves.

Most of Year 6 took advantage this week of the free Breakfast Club, kindly provided by Mrs Hunter and Mrs Reynolds and the Yoga sessions delivered by Kate Orr that were organised by Mrs Kelly to help them start each day relaxed and focused. We were pleasantly surprised by the calm and resilient attitude they all had to each test. Everyone of them took the exams in their stride and their behaviour throughout was exceptional.

Well done to the pupils and to Miss Breen, Mrs Armstrong and Mrs Barrett for preparing them so well. Thank you to Miss Kwan and Mr Madle for extra tutoring, and also to every member of staff who have taught them in each year group from Nursery to present day!


Founders Day and Jubilee Celebrations



This week in the Nursery we have been learning all about minibeasts. We have been talking about snails and worms and the children have loved watching them in their special tanks on our nature table. They have enjoyed cutting out all the right shapes to complete the minibeast identification sheet.

Kingfisher Nursery

What a bug-tastic week we've had!

Kingfisher Nursery have enjoyed exploring minibeasts this week. We looked at different insects and bugs, what they look like and their different body parts - some with wings, some with tails and some with lots of eyes! We worked on using communication boards to complete our fine motor and art activities, from foam printed beetles, to finger painted ladybirds! We finished our week by moving like the minibeasts. Children enjoyed wiggling like a worm, jumping like a grasshopper, crawling like an ant and balancing like a butterfly.

Brilliant work, Kingfisher Nursery!


This week we have continued our learning on plant life cycles and have enjoyed listening to the story of 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. We have started experiments to find out how our own beans will grow best and we are observing them closely every day.

Please can you make time each day for your children to revise their set 1 sounds and practice set 2 sounds that they have learnt. The reading books should be read daily, repetition is key for their progress! If you have any questions, please ask Miss Purse :)

Year 1

This week, Year 1 have been learning how to share amounts up to 50 into groups of 2, 5 and 10. They have worked extremely hard during this topic and all deserve a big WELL DONE!

In English, we have been writing our very own version of ‘Look Up’. The children have had the opportunity to really stretch their imaginations.

In Science, we have begun our topic on plants; learning all about the functions of different parts of a plant. We particularly enjoyed our visit to the woods where we became leaf detectives and identified all the varieties of trees in our local woods.

This weeks awards go to Liana and Ryan for their fantastic Maths work this week.

Year 2

A wonderful week of learning in Year 2! In English, we worked on building our vocabulary in order to create an emotions poem. In Maths we have continued our measurement unit, this time focusing on volume and capacity of containers using ml. In Art, we are focusing on the American artist Georgia O'Keeffe and the children are making close-up plant artwork using oil pastels.

Homework SAT Buster Reading p.33-36

This week the awards go to Ryann and Mikolaj for their amazing plant artwork in the style of Georgia o'Keeffe.

Kingfisher 1

This week in Kingfisher 1 we continued with our author study of Eric Carle and the children have been enjoying The Mixed up Chameleon story which celebrates individuality as we do at Livingstone. All the children were really engaged and have produced some excellent work.

This week's achievement award goes to Arthur for his amazing work in Maths. Well done Arthur!

Year 3

Year 3 have been planning their trick chapter this week and we are very excited to write our narrative next week. We can't wait for you to read them.

In Maths, we have compared, ordered, added and subtracted fractions. We have also found fractions of amounts which has helped us with our division and times table facts.

Our foundation subject this week has been PSHE where we have been learning about the importance of our physical and mental health and what we can do to stay healthy and safe.


This week's awards go to Mario for participating more in class and Leah for excellent fraction work this week.

Year 4

This week in Year 4, we have been looking at converting pounds into pence and vice versa. In English, we have continued exploring different grammatical and language features for our myth writing in the coming weeks.

In D&T we have finally finished making our hummus and yogurt based dips. I hope you enjoy them!

This week's achievement awards go to Arber for his positive attitude and to Marwa for always doing the right thing. Well done!

Year 5

This week, the children started work on angles in Maths; they can identify angles and used protractors to measure them.

In English, they looked at narratives based on The Highwayman and started practising the grammar they'll need for their own writing in a few weeks time: direct speech, complex sentences and starting subordinate clauses with ISPACE.

Art has been their favourite of the week. They designed and created their final piece of street art after studying throw- ups, decorative art, satirical art and stencils.

CGP Books

Maths: pages 58 - 59 (angles) - you'll need a protractor!

English: pages 62 - 64 (punctuating speech)

This week's awards go to Catherine for her hard work in Maths, and to Matteo for his work on direct speech - well done, you two!

Year 6

Year 6 have been amazing this week. They have taken it all in their stride and have all shown how hard they have worked. We are extremely proud of them all.

We will now be starting our Geography topic which is South America and the Amazon Rainforest, looking at maps and learning about the features of the rainforest, deforestation and tourism.


Our achievement award this week goes to each and every member of Y6 for the resilience and determination you have shown.

Kingfisher 2

In English this week, we have been using the text ‘How to Trap a Dragon’ by Pie Corbett to explore instructional texts. We have been following instructions to create some effective dragon craft and learning about the key features in order to write our own set of instructions.

We've had another busy week in Maths, comparing and measuring lengths in cm's and m’s!

This week's award goes to Calvin and Jack, who have been really challenging themselves with the SPICY tasks recently, giving everything a good go and doing their very best!

Fantastic work, boys!
