School Trip to Tring Museum and Park

Prayer Day

Our Dips and Dippers Project

We had fun smelling, tasting, describing and evaluating various foods and then we followed some recipes to make our own dips.  Lots of children tried foods they had never had before and we all enjoyed the picnic at the end.


Learning about Japan

We had a great day learning about Japan when 3 Japanese visitors came to tell us all about their country.  We all had a chance to wear a kimono and we couldn't believe how long the obi (sash) was!!

Practise maths skills at home

The children have each been given a login to a Maths activity website called Sumdog which has maths games aimed at improving their speed and accuracy in mental maths. To access this at home please visit: www.sumdog.com.

Their usernames are their first name, beginning with a capital letter, followed by the first letter of their surname (also a capital letter); their password is cat and the school code is nashmills.

e.g. Username: BenD

       Password:  cat

       School code: nashmills


Please note that the activities are tailored to each child's abilities according to their results, so if older siblings use the same log-in , it will affect the questions asked.
