Last week, Sparrows spent a day planning and creating their own instruments using a variety of recycling material. There was a variety of instruments created, such as guitars, maracas and shakers. They all looked amazing and sounded great!
This week for P.E. Sparrows class has been doing shot put. They have all been fantastic and have all managed to throw the ball really long distances. Well Done!
Journey into the Sky
At the beginning of term 2, year 1 had a day learning all about a journey into the sky for the start of their topic on transport. The pupils took a plane journey with Dolly the dog into the sky.

Good teaching is allowing pupils to make up for previous gaps in their learning. Pupils have good attitudes to learning because teachers plan activities which maintain pupils interest and enthusiasm. Pupils are proud of their work and this is reflected in their books, which are very neatly presented.
The academy provides well for pupils of all abilities. The most able pupils are given work which is at the right level and are encouraged to do as well as they can and so they make good progress.
Pupils enjoy reading and use the well-stocked library to choose a different book each week. Daily reading sessions, together with well-taught phonics (the sounds that letters make) help to secure pupils good achievement in reading.
