Today I watched our children in set 5 using skipping to learn their 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

Mrs Ferry and Mrs Phillingham swung the skipping rope and each child had to skip while everybody chanted.   It was a great lesson and everyone really enjoyed themselves.

This was the scene at school last week.   The whole of the UK was covered in snow, but all the children and Staff at Charlestown made it in to school.   What a great day we had!

Mr Gauld gave everyone extra playtime to really get out in the snow and enjoy it whist it was there.   We had a snowman competition and a snowball target throwing competeioin with Mr Gauld as the target!   We won’t see many more days like that one for a while.
