Staverton 99: Our final list

As part of World Book Day 2016, the children have compiled the following list of their favourite books. This is a wide and varied list. Our aim is to purchase all these books and place them in our growing library.  

Term 4


Welcome back, I hope you had a wonderful break and are looking forward to the term ahead! This term, our topic is 'Water, water, everywhere...'. This will give the children the opportunity to investigate water use and conservation around the school, water availability in the developing world, as well as how water is treated and rivers around the world. It will also link brilliantly with learning about solids, liquids, gases and the water cycle in science. Over the term, the children will work in terms to build their own, working, water wheels. This term may be short but it will certainly be an exciting one! Watch this space for some of the fantastic learning going on in Otters Class.

Our Talk For Writing story, 'Staying Out'

Staverton Science Week starts on Monday 14th March!

Reading Challenge

The Reading Challenge continues!  We now have several children on their SUPER GOLD bookmark! 

Remember, you can only get one box filled in each day, so it is important to read often!

Welcome to Term 3


Welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year. 2016 in Otters Class is set to be a very exciting year indeed! This term, our topic is 'The Romans'. The children will explore: life in these times, including traditions in food, leisure, religion and art; the Roman Empire; important Roman figures including Julius Caesar and Boudicca; and the impact of Romans on Britain today.
