St Martins Academy Chester

'An Outstanding School' – Ofsted June 2015   Read the report here

Numbering Newgate.


The baby pictures provided for homework were absolutely fantastic! We had some fantastic discussions about describing what is similar and what is different about each of us now. The children led the questioning after some modelling and it was lovely to see the concentration and respect that they have for each other when talking.

I am feeling

A focus this week has been our emotions. The children have learnt the High Frequency Word (HFW) ‘I’ and have then applied it to their speech bubble writing. ‘I feel…’ was the sentence starter and the children completed the sentence with support. Their formation and letter recognition was outstanding and the team have been blown away by the way they are now applying their sounds to their learning.

In numeracy this week, we have been looking at ordering numbers 1-10. We started by having lots of counting and number songs while dancing around. The children were really involved in this and then applied the songs to help them order numbers correctly. The children also had the opportunity to practice their fine motor control by cutting and sticking.

Water play

Next week is our first class trip to Ness Gardens. The children must arrive at school wearing full P.E. Kit: joggers, t-shirt, hoodie, warm socks, wellies or footwear that is suitable for mud and rain, a full waterproof coat (the St Martin's coat please if you have one) , hat and gloves are to be kept in pockets of their coat.

Please refer to the homework blog and return by Monday.

Many thanks,

Miss Bowler, Miss Howarth and Mrs Thombs.
