"Pupils behave really well in class, around school and at playtimes. Positive and caring relationships have created an environment where pupils are kept safe and feel safe. Leaders, staff and pupils work hard to make sure that pupils are ready for life"

One of our pupils was so inspired by our geography topic that he persuaded his family to go on a sightseeing trip over the weekend! He took them to many of the landmarks we've located and studied - we hope he was an excellent tour guide!

We love seeing learning going on at home, getting the whole family involved. Remember to share all the wonderful activities you're doing at home.

We love every Flexi-Friday but this one felt a little more "historic" as we spent the day learning about King Charles III. Many of the children were surprised to learn that he was the first heir to attend an actual school rather than being taught at home. They were impressed by his commitment to charities and the environment too. Classes were able to spend the end of the day preparing decorations for the classroom which we look forward to using next week.

In maths, we've continued learning all things FRACTIONS. This can be quite a confusing topic but the children have shown their resilience and determination as always. 

Questions to ask this weekend:

*How do you know 1/2 and 3/6 are equivalent?

*What is 1/3 of 12? Can you draw a bar model to prove it?

*Which conjunctions and adjectives are most useful when trying to persuade someone to come to Birmingham?

*After reading "The Wild", was it right that the little girl returned to the forest? What happened in the text to support your decision?

*Is Little Red Riding Hood's hood roja or rosa?

*Did her abuela live in a casa or a bosque?

  • Squiggle Whilst you Wiggle!

    Our Reception class children have been having great fun learning to write with the Squiggle whilst you wiggle Early Writing Program created by Shonette Bason. The programme uses dance and large movements to help children develop the fine muscle control they need for writing. They will learn a new gross motor movement to a piece of music. They will dance using this movement and use it to make marks, this could be in foam, on paper, in sand etc.

  • Year 3 Round Up

    What a soggy end to the week...and we don't just mean the rain! Today's Flexi Friday was a gloriously messy one. As one of the pupils described in assembly, with a gigantic grin on his face, "it was disgusting!". The children had to work together to build up the base to their own Ancient Egyptian Death Masks, using papier mache.

  • Year 3 Round Up

    1st Jul 2022 Many people think that school life starts to slow down toward the end of the summer term, but the children of Turves Green can tell you that’s not true! They are still doing their very best with every piece of learning and challenge we set them. This week, we’ve been revisiting and extending our knowledge of perimeter – we noticed how much our measuring skills have improved and we are highly skilled at explaining the reasoning behind our mental calculations. We’ve been playing a game called “Running Total” to help us, all need is a dice or a pack of cards!

We feel very lucky to be able to spend time with your children and we loved the opportunity to see so many of you this week to talk about them (at length!). We are now in the build up toward our second piece of writing, where the children will be giving clear and concise instructions for mummification. From what we here, they are quite the experts!
