Clumber have been super sporty this week as it's been SPORTS WEEK!smiley

We've been involved in a variety of different sports and activities and our wellbeing has really had a positive boost.

Activities have included, athletics, adventure service, bowling, coyts, target ball, making a healthy snack, sports quizzes, yoga and tag active. Tilly even climbed the climbing wall all the way to the top.

Logan was our star of the week. He has been a super star trying out new things that can be quite scary sometimes. Congratulations Logan and well done Clumber for being good sports!


Week beginning: 13.5.24


This was a really exciting week for Clumber and the other classes in Phase 2. It was residential week!! We had a great time at Caythorpe and stayed away from home for 2 nights. This was a first for a lot of us.

We did lots of activities including climbing, aeroball, archery, laser tag, fire making and orienteering with our friends. We learned survival skills and even had a silent disco. Luckily, the weather was great so we were able to be outside all the time. 

Everyone enjoyed this experience and can't wait to go on another adventure. 


Hello and welcome back to the Summer Term! We’re looking forward to a season filled with engaging activities and learning opportunities. This term, we'll continue to enjoy our adventures at forest school and are excited to prepare for an upcoming curling competition. In Humanities, our focus will be on the theme of 'Changes', specifically looking at environmental changes and the impact of climate change, complemented by related literature like The Kapok Tree and The Life Cycle of a Bee. Math lessons will cover fractions, time, and statistics, while in Science, we'll explore biological changes in humans, plants, and mammals. PE classes are set to boost our athletic skills as we gear up like Olympians in preparation for Paris 2024. It promises to be a dynamic and enriching term for Clumber!

Welcome back to the Summer Term in Clumber Class.


Happy Red Nose Day Everyone!


Week beginning 8.3.24.


Wow!! We’ve had a busy few weeks. Yesterday, we celebrated World Book Day and completed a cover and blurb quiz. We had to use our best reading skills to look for clues. Every student in the class received a book of their choice or a voucher to spend on a book. πŸ“š

On Wednesday afternoons, we have been attending Forest School. Please check out the photos of this week’s adventures. 

Diesel was our star 🌟 of the week last week and it was Connor this week! 🌟 Congratulations to both of you. 


Week beginning 19.2.25


Welcome back to the second half of the Spring Term! 😊

This week we have started a new book ‘Malala’s Magic Pencil’ this was written by Malala Yousafzai, who won the Nobel Peace Prize when she was only 16 years old! She fought for girl’s rights to attend school all around the World. 

In PE, we have been working our muscles and getting fitter and at Forest School we played hide and seek and went on a gnome hunt. Take a look at our class photos. 

In cooking, we baked ‘Mug Cakes’ they were very tasty! 🧁🍩

Happy Half Term Everyone


Week beginning 5.2.24


So far this term we've been on a super cool adventure  with our "Fair for All" theme! It's all about learning how everyone deserves to be treated equally and kindly. Here’s a sneak peek into what we’ve been up to:

We zoomed way back in time to learn about the Atlantic Slave Trade. It was a really important part of history that changed the world a lot. We talked about how it's super important to treat everyone with respect.

In Design and Technology, we turned into mini artists with weaving! We got to play with colours and patterns to make our very own designs.

We've become measuring masters in maths! Whether it's figuring out how long, how tall, or how much, we're on it. It's like being a detective, but with numbers!

We also learned about some amazing people called the Suffragettes, especially a lady named Emmeline Pankhurst. They were super brave and fought really hard so that women could have the same rights as men. They showed us how important it is to stand up for what’s right.

Take a look at our weaving designs.


Week beginning 8.1.24


Happy New Year everyone and welcome back to an exciting new term!

Clumber Class have settled into 2024 really well. They have all shown a lot of enthusiasm towards our new topic 'Fair for All' and have shown a positive attitude to returning to school and getting back into our class and school routines.

A couple of general reminders - Monday and Thursday are our PE days. PE will be inside this term, so please ensure your child has a kit including polo shirt, shorts and trainers/plimsolls.

Keeping hydrated is so important. Children can access water throughout the day, so a clearly labelled water bottle is essential. Friday is homework day. This needs to be returned by the following Thursday. Thank you.yes

Chester was our first Star of the Week of 2024 for showing respect to adults and his peers. Well done!smiley

Merry Christmas Everyone! 
Best Wishes from Clumber Class.


Week beginning 11.12.23


On Wednesday and Friday we held our Christmas Cafes for parents. It was lovely to have our friends and families in school. We served hot drinks, mince pies and biscuits πŸͺ. Clumber class were the waiting staff and also the entertainers working on quizzes, word searches and Christmas jumper designs. We also shared our Christmas stories and did a quick Kahoot to test our parents’ knowledge of Christmas past and present. πŸŽπŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ» Thank you all for coming along to our Christmas Cafe. ⭐️





Week beginning 27.11.23


Clumber have been working so hard this week. We have been investigating shapes and learning about edges, vertices and faces. In English we have been reading texts about the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. We have been honing our retrieval skills and recording our answers as clearly as we can.

Chester was our star ⭐️ of the week this week for working independently in Maths. Well done! 


Week beginning 13.11.23


Since returning from our half term holidays, Clumber have been really busy!

Last Friday we brought in our homework projects which were fantastic. Please see the photographs.smiley Our task was to create a Bronze Age Round House. We thought about the materials that we would need to use and designed it based on our own research. Our most surprising fact was that the houses didn't have any windows! (Just like the Twit's house!)

This week we visited Harvey Haddon Leisure Centre for a Dodgeball Festival. Mrs Rigley, Mrs Hutchinson, Miss Norgate and Andy were very proud of us. We played fairly at all times and followed the rules. We put in lots of effort and made some hits and catches. Well done Clumber.heart



Happy Half Term Everyone! πŸŽƒπŸ‘»πŸƒπŸ‚πŸπŸ„πŸ¦”πŸΏ

Week beginning 16.10.23

On Thursday, we celebrated our harvest festival. Everyone was really generous and kind. We had lots of donations from our families and the food we collected will be delivered to the food bank we support as a school.

Clumber class read poems and talked about what we are thankful for. Rubie read a prayer at the end of the assembly. 

This week we have continued with our maths work on shapes and learned about Stonehenge in humanities. We had a go at modelling our own too!  

Clumber have worked really hard this term and are looking forward to a wonderful half term holiday. smiley



Week beginning 2.10.23

This week we have been writing stories based on the book 'Stone Age Boy.' These are coming on really well. We have been using story maps to support our planning and have imitated the introduction.

At the beginning of the week we went foraging for materials to make some Stone age tools. We found stones, rocks and wood around the school grounds. 

In Independent Travel we have been venturing out a bit further and hope to try out the red route next week with a trip to Morrisons.smiley

Week beginning 18.9.23

On Monday we visited Nottingham University for a Stone Age Experience. We all had a great time and learned so much about the Stone Age. We tried making a fire using a bow drill, hunted a bison with spears, painted a cave print, made animals with clay, tried out weaving, engraved a pretend bone using flints, milked a goat and made a fence for a goat pen out of sticks and rope!  Everyone was really well-behaved and used super manners all day.blush

Week beginning 5.9.23

Welcome back Clumber ☺️


We’ve had a very calm first week back despite it being very hot!πŸ₯΅

The children have been amazing. They have settled into routines and we feel ready for a full working week next week. 

We have a new topic which is titled Walking with our Ancestors. This will begin with the Stone Age.
I’m hoping everyone has received information regarding the trip we have organised. This will be a great experience and will give the children a hands on approach to learning about the Stone Age. 

PE is still Monday and we have an extra slot on a Thursday. I will be sending homework on a Friday starting from next week. This will be a rotation of maths, english and humanities.


As always any questions please message us.😊


Clumber Class would like to wish all our friends and families a wonderful summer holiday.πŸŒ΄πŸ¦πŸ„‍♂️ Let’s hope the sun shines for everyone!🌞 Stay safe and we’ll see you all in September. 😊
