Welcome Back Year 1 2016-2017

  Year 1 The children have settled in well to their new classes and made a great start to the year. They all look very smart in their uniform. Please can you make sure their clothes are named.    We will start PE next week so all the children will need to bring their kit, again it is vital to label their clothes to prevent any mix ups!   Thank you Year 1 teachers.  

Learning lots of Maths facts.

  This week, Year 2 were learning lots of Maths facts. We were working hard to try to remember our number bonds to 10 and 20 and say them as fast as our names! We did very well. Later in the week we became experts at ordering numbers in different ways. We love Maths and some children really enjoyed solving some real-life Maths challenges on the carpet when they had finished their work. Look at how well they are working. I wonder what we will be learning about this week...  

In The Ancient Egyptian tomb

  Year 3 had a wonderful experience in the Ancient Egyptian tomb. We were a little apprehensive at first as it was so dark and eerie sounds filled the air. We found many artefacts, (not to mention discovering a skeleton by the light of our torches)! We are looking forward to the weeks ahead when we can discover more.  

Roman artefacts we found on the school grounds

  15th September   Here are the 5 Roman artefacts we found on the school grounds today. What do you think they were used for? What do they tell us about the Romans?  

5B have been working hard on their assembly

5B have been working hard on their assembly: rehearsing lines, singing songs and polishing their acting skills. 5S and 5A are busily preparing for theirs.    We are now coming to the end of our work on the Lady of Shalott, which has really captured our imagination.   

Mayan Mayhem topic

Last week, we continued our Mayan Mayhem topic and learnt all about the Maya religion. We couldn't believe what gruesome things ( including pulling a rope with thorns in across your tongue to let blood) the Mayan people had to do in order to show their respect to the gods. In Maths, we were busy practising our addition and subtraction skills using formal methods and then applied our knowledge to solving word problems. In English, we improved our editing and improving skills and we will continue to develop these skills throughout the year. In PE, our Haka dances are developing and we are working as a team to choreograph our own dances.  Several of us went to cross country and we hope more of our class mates will be able to go the week after residential so we can win!

What A Week !!!

Wow what a week it has been! Not only have we been reading Dogger by Shirley Hughes in English and learnt how to partition and identify the value of numbers in Maths but we've also managed to fit in several special events as well! On Wednesday we celebrated Roald Dahl Day, an international event which celebrated the fantastical writings of this genius author.  This year marks 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl and was the biggest worldwide celebration ever! His amazing array of novels have not only inspired millions of children and adults alike but also have added thousands of words like frobscottle or her majester to the Oxford Dictionary. To finish off our week, we invited Freshwater theatre company to come into our school and perform a Great Fire of London themed production. The children of Year 2 greatly enjoyed this and very excitedly joined in aswell. This production was made even more special as this year is the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London of 1666. We hope next week will continue to build upon our joy of learning and will be just as exciting!

Children have settled in very well to year 4

Busy start to the year (8th September)   All the children have settled in very well to year 4 - well done! We have a very busy week next week including...  

Tuesday 

- Roald Dahl Day. We are celebrating 100 years since his birth. Bring in your favourite Roald Dahl book!    

Thursday   

- class councillor elections. Prepare your persuasive speeches!  

- an amazing discovery has been made on the school grounds.

The children will need to be good archaeologists. It may have something to do with the Romans...    

Friday   

- Science Day. We will be spending the day doing weird and wonderful science investigations.  

- Deadline for handing in entries for the Year 4 Twitter logo (must be square)   Also, please can the children bring in an old top to wear for painting. Thanks!      

'1066 and all that'

  In Year 5, we have launched our topic '1066 and all that' by recreating the Bayeux tapestry using paint. We know that it was 70m long and created as a record of the Battle of Hastings. Each pair were responsible for a different scene including battle scenes and the death of the King! It was a great day and we are looking forward to finding out more when we look in greater depth at the tapestry later in our topic.  

Travelling back in time to the Mayan times

This week was a very interesting week, from travelling in time to the Mayans to celebrating Roald Dahl Day. We had an amazing experience travelling back in time to the Mayan times with The Fresh Water Theatre Company- it was very fun and educational! On Friday we read ‘Lamb to the Slaughter’ by Roald Dahl, a very mysterious short story. We were inspired by his work and wrote our own short suspenseful stories based on this.  Thank you for reading and Happy Roald Dahl Day!

'The Monkey Puzzle' by Julia Donaldson

Well what a fantastic start to Year 2 we have had so far! We have been reading the story 'The Monkey Puzzle' by Julia Donaldson as part of English this week and using lots of descriptive language to describe the animals. Our topic work has focussed on New Beginnings so we have thought of how we might feel when starting something new and ways in which we can feel less scared or worried. We also created our own 'new world' and thought of what it would look like if it were to come true. It included respect, kindness to others, lots of outdoor space and using our manners.

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

  We have enjoyed are first week of year 6. In English, we have been studying The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. In this topic we have been describing Narnia. In Maths, we have been doing place value and Mr Bishop’s group have been looking at the history of numbers. Also, we have been researching global issues for our corridor displays including food waste, water shortage and saving our planet.
