Spellings WB 27th February 2017

Here are the spellings for this week.  The next test will be on Monday 6th March 2017.  The children are really improving on their spellings.  Each and every one of them is aiming to get more correct than they did the week before and it is making all the difference in their writing. Well done year 3!  Keep going like the tortoise.

Please help your child to learn these spellings this week.  Have a lovely weekend and a very big thank you to Rocky Ferguson’s mum Hannah for coming in on World Book Day and sharing all her knowledge.  The children and teaching staff really enjoyed it and learnt so much.

3W – Internet Safety

Today in 3W we have been thinking about internet safety. We made some posters to remind us of the rules. We thought of these things:

  • Don’t tell people your personal information
  • Don’t be friends with strangers on the internet – it could be anybody!
  • Get permission to download or delete anything
  • Always ask an adult before you play anything new
  • Check with an adult before you watch anything
  • If you see something scary or someone is mean talk to an adult about it

You could watch Hector’s World for more good ideas thinkuknow.co.uk/5_7/hectorsworld/

Thank You!

Y1 want to say a big thank you to all supporters of our Grandparent’s Fun and Games afternoon today!
The children and adults enjoyed a huge variety of old and new games. It was a lovely opportunity to meet grandparents and for the children to learn something new! It was also refreshing to hear that all the children had been polite and respectful with the adults and their peers.

Thank you again
the Y1 Team.

Mental maths magicians!

4T are practising their mental maths skills this week, in order to improve the speed and accuracy in all areas of their maths learning. Today we have been sharing top tips to remember our times tables and working on doubles and ‘near doubles’ to make quick calculations. We can quickly add single, double and three digit numbers and some of us have been doubling decimals! We have had fun playing board games and computer games to consolidate our understanding.


We will be looking at number bonds, facts for free, inverse and rounding to estimate, later in the week.

St. Leonard’s are Champions of Devon in Boccia

Congratulations to the St. Leonard’s Boccia team, who won the Devon Finals at St. Luke’s Science and Sports Academy on Monday the 23rd of January. There were 7 teams in total from The King’s School, Newton Abbot college, Pathfield and SouthBrook. All Secondary School teams! We had opt play against each team in 5 games. In each game, you scored one point for each Boccia ball that was closet to the Jack compared to the other team. Our first game against the King’s School C team was a comfortable victory of 6-0. With Jame’s captaining the team of Aidan and Lily, the team grow from strength to strength, winning by bigger margins. Their hardest game was against Newton Abbot College (a school that Mr Doku used to teach in). The game finished at 6-6. A tie-break had to be played. Under cool and calm orders from the captain, the team won the decider 3-0. In fact, St. Leonards won every game they played to be crowned Devon Champions in Boccia and will go through to represent the county at the Regional competition later in the year against our local counties including Cornwall and Dorset. James was also selected by the ST. Luke’s sports leaders as being one of the performers of the day for showing the Spirit of the games values: Honesty, Passion, Team Work, Respect, Determination and Self-Belief. Go St. Leonards!!!
