What a privilege this morning for me, standing in for Miss Weir and meeting all the children chosen by their teachers for ‘Weir’s Weekly Review’, which we decided to rename ‘McNerney’s Magnificient Meeting’! I was very impressed with the presentation of work and the pride the children had when sharing their books. It was also lovely to hear about the positive attitude Year 6 pupils have had when completing their pratice SATs tests this week.We even played an animation designed on Scratch, which was good fun.

Well done the first group of 2019 children who attended Weir’s Weekly Review. It was lovely to hear about new topics and the children’s enthusiasm for learning really shone through. All enjoyed with juice and cake; a wonderful end to the week! Miss Weir
Lots of impressive Maths work was shared this morning. The children were interested to see how their written calculation methods progress form their work in Year 3 up to Year 6. Enjoyment for Maths really shone through, too. Our ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’ is hugely popular in school and the children were very impressed at the time achieved by a ‘Rock Hero’. Love for reading was great to see, from theatre reviews in Reading Journals, to comparing versions of the same story. All enjoyed with juice and cake. The highlight of my week! Well done to all the boys and girls. Miss Weir
It was great to catch-up with children who were chosen last week, for the Weekly Review. A wonderful range of creative work was proudly shared by the children, from ‘Make Do and Mend’ D&T projects to informative ‘Green Cross Code’ art work, following Road Safety Week. Children from upper school explained key words from the water cycle by giving real life examples. Years 3 and 4 are clearly enjoying their work based on ‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin’; letters of complaint to the mayor were powerfully persuasive. Well done! Miss Weir
This week, the children who shared their super achievements in Maths talked about how Times Tables Rock Stars is helping them to recall multiplication and division facts quickly, to solve problems. The standard of writing across different topic books, was fantastic! The children proudly read extracts of their writing, which reflected the deep knowledge, understanding and empathy they have for the people they have studied in history. All enjoyed with juice and cake! Well done to all the boys and girls this week. Highly impressive achievements. Miss Weir
This week’s assembly theme was about Remembrance and the WW1 centenary. Work shared today showed thoughtful reflections on why it is important to remember, through poems, prayers and poppy designs. Some of the children brought work completed during Open Time and it was clear they really enjoyed working alongside their adults. Stickers have been sent home for children to give to their adults, for their contribution to the work celebrated today (so, be sure to ask for it!).
Written work in History included instructions on how to make an Egyptian Mummy and job applications for the Home Front in WW2. It is great to see such a high standard of writing across the curriculum and children enjoying writing about their learning in such different ways. Well done! Miss Weir
National Poetry Day on Thursday certainly inspired some very creative and descriptive writing. The range of poetry and use of different techniques to create imagery was impressive and were read with beautiful expression. Other work that was celebrated included letters of thank you to our visitor who delivered the Egyptian workshop; a ‘Code for Life’ showing thoughtful reflections in RE; an informative East Barnby homework booklet and some magic Maths! Teachers also sent children who have been exceptional role models, demonstrating superb attitudes and learning behaviours. Well done! Miss Weir

This week the children were keen to ask each other questions about their learning, prompting interesting discussion. I was presented with a beautifully drawn Egyptain cartouche with ‘Weir’ written in hieroglyphics, which is now displayed in my office. The children are clearly enjoying learning about the Ancient Egyptians and WW2; their depth of knowledge and understanding is impressive. We listened to wonderfully descriptive and engaging story openings as well as clearly explained predictions for science investigations. All the children were awarded with stickers, juice and cake as a well-earned treat. A fabulous Review!

The first Weir’s Weekly Review of the new school year was superb! Class teachers have the difficult job each week of choosing one child to share work that has really impressed them. The children enjoyed juice and chocolate cake whilst discussing their work and each got a special sticker for their achievements. Always the highlight of my week. Well done! Miss Weir
