When Fenland Sings

Still image for this video
Watch 2 members of The Young 'Uns perform the song we helped them to write as part of a collaboration project. We were challenged to write a song about our local area and, as we had been learning about the Romans, we decided that Boudica was a fascinating subject. Enjoy!



As we have mentioned previously, we have been looking at some changes in approach to homework. 

Moving forwards, children will be expected to complete their home reading (at least 10 minutes, 5 times a week) and 30 minutes a week on either NumBots or TT Rockstars (as directed by the class teacher).  


There will also be several more open-ended learning tasks/projects that class teachers will set on class pages and Showbie each half term for children that wish to extend their learning further. Responses to these can then be shared and celebrated in school. 


Please also feel free to speak to your child(ren)’s class teacher(s) if you would like any further support with home learning.

19/05/23 Newsletter entry - This week in our science lessons we have enjoyed learning about shadows.  You have probably seen this week’s investigation on the playground as it resembles a crime scene! We predicted how the size and position of our shadow would change throughout the day and, a day later than planned due to the overcast weather, measured our shadows to see if we were correct.  We have also written newspaper entries about the capture of the Iron Man in our English writing.  In Maths we are beginning to look at reading the time on an analogue clock which some of us are finding rather tricky! 

Katherine Johnson

Katherine Johnson

Katherine Johnson was born on 26th August 1918. As a young girl, Katherine loved to count. She counted everything. She would count the number of steps she took to the road. She counted the steps into church. She even counted the forks and plates when she washed the dishes. Early in her career, she was called a “computer.” She helped NASA put an astronaut into orbit around Earth. And then she helped put a man on the Moon. Here are some facts that Johnson class discovered.


* Katherine Johnson was one of only three black students at her university.

* She worked at NASA from 1953 to 1986.

* It was her Maths skills that helped America's first journey into space in 1961.

* She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama.

* Katherine died on February 24th, 2020.
