Grouping and sharing in Year 2
16 March 2018

Maths in year 2 has been all about grouping and sharing. The children have been thinking about whether you need to make groups or count groups. They have also worked very hard on how to show their thinking using real objects , drawings or representations of what they have used. The children enjoyed making up their own stories such as “10 teachers and 20 biscuits, how many biscuits will each teacher get ?”

Perimeter in maths
15 March 2018

Year 5 are learning about perimeter in maths. They had to estimate the perimeter of the netball court and also the classroom. Outside, the children used a trundle wheel, metre sticks and footsteps to measure the perimeter. They realised that they only had to measure one of the lengths and one of the widths of the court and then add them before doubling the answer. All three methods produced answers that were very close together in size. Next, they worked as a class measuring the perimeter of he classroom. The children expressed the perimeter in four ways: m and cm, m, cm and mm. lastly they had to add up all the lengths of the various walls. The children used a variety of strategies to add the lengths including column addition and partitioning numbers. A good class effort!

Year 5 learn to play the ocarina
15 March 2018

Year 5 children are learning to play the ocarina, a small instrument with four holes that is played like a recorder. They have learned a couple of tunes: Twinkle, Twinkle and London’s Burning. During the lesson, they also listen to pieces of music from the BBC Ten Pieces collection and discuss their thoughts about them. As well as this, they are learning about simple notation.

Internet Safety and Computing in Year 2
15 March 2018

Year 2 have been learning to program bee-bots this half-term, creating accurate instructions using direction words and symbols. They have learnt to write down their instructions (create an algorithm), try it out and change it (debug it) if it wasn’t correct.
For Safer Internet Day, Year 2 played a special game of Safety Snakes, by Barefoot Computing, programming the bee-bot to play the game on the roll of a dice. Some of the squares had good tips for keeping safe while on the internet and others had problems and dilemmas to think about. We had a good discussion about what to do in each scenario. ‘Get a grown-up you trust to help’ was the most popular answer! Well done Year 2!

Operation Encompass
13 March 2018

The school has been given the opportunity to take part in a project that will run jointly between schools and Devon and Cornwall Police. Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident.

Operation Encompass will ensure that a member of the school staff, known as a Key Adult, is trained to allow them to liaise with the police and to use the information that has been shared, in confidence, while ensuring that the school is able to make provision for possible difficulties experienced by children, or their families, who have been involved in, or exposed to, a domestic abuse incident.

We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved. See link for further details:

Fair Trade Conference 2018
9 March 2018

Our young ambassadors had an incredible time at this years Fair Trade conference. So many fascinating things to learn and talk about. The children talked in depth about the growing, farming, production and trading of tea. The children  also explored a number of other fair trade products and traders. They especially enjoyed activities that encouraged them to taste the product even if some didn’t quite taste as they imagined!


Big Beach Bus poetry winners
9 March 2018
We couldn’t be more proud of Littleham’s Year 4 class. The whole class pulled all of their creative ideas together to write a poem to celebrate the launch of the Big Beach Bus this summer. Celebrating and exploring language to have an impact on the reader is something that our pupils are working really hard at. Writing and being understood by others is a life skill. Finding fun ways to develop this life skill through poetry competitions is just one way that we keep learning in literacy at Littleham real and meaningful for our children. 
Having our winning poem printed is wonderful. the day out at Devon Cliffs was the icing on the cake to reward children for their hard work.  Despite the rain, they had a great time wall climbing and trying archery. Lots of them hit the target so Robin Hood look out!
Budding young gardeners
8 March 2018

The children in Year 3 have been busy sowing vegetable seeds with Mr Bell including lettuce and broad bean seeds. They also took the opportunity to look around our spiritual garden and notice the signs of spring. We’re so lucky to have Mr Bell working with us, sharing his knowledge, expertise and passion for gardening. We’ve certainly got some young budding gardeners at school as a result!
