Great Maths in Year 1 – Using what we know

By | Maths, Year 1

Great maths from Year 1.  They are all using number facts that they know to solve other problems.

If you know 4 + 3 = 7 then you also know 40 + 30 = 70

If you know 7 – 2 = 5.  What is 70 – 20?

Why not tell Mrs. Whyman and explain to her how you know.

What other problems could you solve like this?

A prayer for our year 6 children

By | News, Religious Education, Year 6

Dear Lord,

As I take this test, I thank you that my value is not based on my performance, but on your great love for me.

Help me, not only with this test, but the many tests of life that are sure to come my way.

As I take this test, bring back to my mind everything I have studied and be gracious with what I have overlooked.

Help me to remain focused and calm, confident in the facts and in my ability, and firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens today you are there with me.

Rugby Festival April 2018

By | Sport, Sporting Excellence

We are still waiting for the results from Wickersley Rugby Festival. However, Mrs Jepson said that the children had a winning attitude. With superb team spirit, manners and a healthy competitive attitude, they represented St Alban’s in the finest way.


A huge thank you to Mr Woodhouse and Mrs Wagstaff who volunteered to take the children – their support meant that we could take 4 teams.

Building Model Cars

In Y4, we have all been working on our Design Technology project. We decided to make model cars move using  motors.  We designed our cars and used tools to build our models.

We worked hard to build circuits which made our cars move.

Congratulations to everyone but especially our competition winners.
