April Week 3

Friday 22nd April

Come and Support our girl's team!

On Thursday 19th May, our Livingstone girls' football team are playing Christchurch in the Final at 3:30pm on our very own field. We would love to see lots of parents and children from Key Stage 2 watching and making lots of noise, so please come and support the team.


Keeping Safe on Devices


It is very important that all parents and carers monitor the use of their child/ ren's devices such as mobile phones, laptops, iPads etc. Even the youngest children in our school have been talking about inappropriate cartoon characters that are quite scary. Please speak to any older siblings about showing their younger family members age related material only.



Nursery have really enjoyed Forest School this week. They particularly enjoyed using the watering jug to see how the water travels through the pipes and talking about recycling water. The children also really enjoyed using the interactive hardware board and looking for fish and bugs in the pond.


Kingfisher Nursery

Welcome back Kingfisher Nursery!

We've had a lovely start to our Summer Term. We have been exploring the life- cycle of a frog, looking at the stages as a tadpole to eventually becoming a frog. We sang the song '5 Little Speckled Frogs' and counted back from 5 to 1, removing a frog from our log each time. We followed this by making our own speckled frog using sponges and pipets!

We finished our week with an adventure to the pond area on to look for tadpoles!




A fantastic (and very busy!) first week back in Reception class this week. We have consolidated our learning and had lots of fun on our class trip to Aldenham Country Park this week. We enjoyed observing and feeding lots of different farm animals and then also visited the 100 Aker Woods to look for Winnie the Pooh and other characters. A lovely way to start the term!

The whole of Reception class for their fantastic behaviour on our trip to Aldenham! We are so proud of your maturity.

Year 1

Welcome back Year 1!

We have had a lovely start to the summer term this week.

In Maths, we have revisited counting in 2s and 5s, and have moved on to counting in groups of 10.

In English, we have focused on the story of ‘Billy’s Bucket’. We have enjoyed developing our own ideas about what creatures could be in our own buckets and writing sentences with a focus on correct punctuation (capital letters, finger spaces and full stops).

All children have been exceptionally focused and hardworking this week.

Well done Year 1!


This weeks awards go to Tiannah for her hard work and perseverance in phonics and Milo for his lovely ideas and contributions during our English lessons.

Year 2

So great to see everyone again after our Easter Break!

This week we started looking at the book 'Traction Man is Here' and have acted out some of his adventurous missions.

We also have started our Computing topic so everyone has been given a Purple Mash login (stuck in reading diaries) and children have explored how they can use technology for different topics like Maths, Art, English, etc.

In Maths we are working on measuring, ordering and comparing length. All children again were very focussed on their tasks, well done Year 2!


Our achievement awards this week go to Edward and Christina for acting out Traction Man brilliantly!

Kingfisher 1

It has been lovely to be back at school, well rested and enjoying the gorgeous weather!

This week we have begun looking at the author Eric Carle and the text, 'The Very Busy Spider.' The children engaged well with the story and produced lovely work.

In Maths we have been measuring length, the children again were very focused on their tasks, well done!


This week's achievement award goes to Arthur for his positive attitude to learning, keep it up!

Year 3

Year 3 have had a great week since returning back to school. In Maths, we have started our next unit which is focused on Fractions. In English, our class book is 'The Twits' and we will use this as inspiration to create our own trick. In Science we are learning about plants and the children have learnt about the function of a flower and pollination. We also took part in a science enquiry to investigate water transportation.

Year 4

Year 4 have had an excellent first week back and have worked exceptionally hard.

In Maths, we have continued our work on decimals looking at hundredths. In English, we have started working on the Ancient Greek myth Theseus and the Minotaur. In History, we are now focusing on Ancient Greece and are answering the question 'In what was have the Ancient Greeks influenced our lives?'


This week's achievement award goes to the whole of Year 4 for their positive and hard-working attitude. Well done!

Year 5

Year 5 have had a lovely first week back. They've started reading their two new texts for English: The Highwayman and Pig Heart Boy. In Maths, they've continued their learning on adding and subtracting decimals. In DT, they're becoming bakers! They'll be designing their own bread and baking it next week.

This week's awards go to Albion for always doing his work to a high standard, and to Evie for showing more confidence in Maths - well done, you two!

Year 6

Year 6 have settled back into our school routine beautifully. They have made us very proud during SATs practice week and have demonstrated all their hard work so far this year in their results and should be just as proud of themselves. We have just 2 more weeks before they sit the actual SATs (the week beginning the 9th May) and we will spend this time revising and going over any topics the children feel they would like to revisit. Our new topics this term are the Amazon Rainforest in Geography and Animals including Humans in Science which we will start after SATs.


This week’s achievement awards go to every member of Y6 for their outstanding resilience and determination during practice SATs. You have all been amazing!

Kingfisher 2

It’s been a lovely week back after the Easter break.

The class have been working hard on their times tables and have identified and spelt common homophones.

The children also created some great pictures of the daffodils that are currently brightening up the classroom!
