Welcome to Ide Primary School

Knowing children as individuals

Look at what we have been up to over the last couple of weeks:
 
  • Elm have been working on place value up to four digits and immersing ourselves in Escape to Pompeii. We've also been learning about Romalus and Remus - ask the children where the name Rome came from!
  • Chestnut Class have been rounding numbers and thinking about when we will use this in our lives. We have been enjoying the book 'Street Child' and Finn even became Jim for a walk down conscience alley. 
  • Maple Class have been exploring the life of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. They have been inspired by his life as a young boy and how he came about being a great engineer. They have been role playing this and building train tracks from London to Bristol!
  • Maple Class have also been immersing themselves in the book ‘Traction Man’ and have learnt about verbs, adjectives and using commas in a list along the way. They have been trying to find patterns in number through exploring what happens when we count in tens from any one digit number.
  • As part of their topic, Willow Class recreated the Great Western Railway route, researched the towns that it travelled through and compared transport in the past to transport today.
  • All of the new children in Oak Class have been settling in brilliantly.  They have been drawing, painting and creating portraits as part of our 'All About Me' topic. They used Story Stones to make faces and then create a story about the imaginary person and how they are feeling.  Meet Worried Winnie (below) - Eva says she is worried because she doesn't have any friends and thinks she might be by herself in the playground.  There's also Rosie who is happy because she is about to do a drawing at school and she loves drawing!  
We value every child as an individual and celebrate their success linked to our school values. This week's award winners are...
