This week…

This week…

On Monday we came into school to find a mystery suitcase. After examining the clues very carefully, we realised the suitcase belonged to the witch from ‘Room on the Broom’. All week we’ve been busy making potions to help her fix her broom, writing down ingredients and measuring out different capacities.

Marvellous Masks!

Marvellous Masks!

The children in Year 1 have had a very exciting Autumn term so far. Our topic ‘Hakuna Matata’ has been really interesting. In DT we explored masks from the Lion King stage show. We used some of the creator’s and our own ideas to make our own masks of wild animals that we might see on Safari. Using lots of different materials like felt, card, paper, stickers, pencils, pens, and tissue paper we made our masks. We planned our masks and wrote down what material we would use for features like the markings, ears and nose. We wanted to be as creative as possible- please see these examples of our work. We have evaluated these too. We are very proud of our masks.

Year 1

Year 1

Year 1 have been very lucky this week. We had a wonderful assembly with our school Reverend who joined us to tell a story that celebrated sharing and the message behind Harvest Festival. In our pink hall we have an enormous table with some food that has been kindly donated and some beautifully designed school-baked bread to celebrate Harvest Festival too! Thank you to those who have already donated some items. After our assembly, Year 1 welcomed our Reverend into our learning space for another activity and a meet and greet with him- we asked lots of interesting questions about his job and thanked him ever so much for teaching us a bit more about this time of year .

Anti-Bullying Week in year two …so far

Anti-Bullying Week in year two …so far

This week at school we are taking part in anti-bullying week. We have already completed a range of activities to promote kind behaviour and remember why bullying is unacceptable.

We have created our own anti-bullying posters and chosen thoughtful phrases. We have put the posters up in our learning spaces to remind everybody that is better to be a buddy and friend, not a bully.

We have also been making friendship bracelets. We have explored the history of friendship bracelets and why they were made and given out. We had a great time designing and making them.

 

 

 

Pen Pals in India

Pen Pals in India

We have contacted a primary school in India who have recently celebrated Diwali. We have been lucky enough to receive some wonderful pictures and stories from the children. They have also written us some exciting letters to introduce themselves.

 

We will be writing our own traditional stories and letters to the children in India so they can learn a little more about us. Our letters will be travelling a long way.

Geography Walk

Geography Walk

On Monday and Wednesday, Class 7 and Class 8 went for a geography walk around Huntington. We walked from Huntington Primary School all the way into town to the war memorial. On the way we plotted our route and chose symbols to represent important landmarks for example bus stops and the community center. Please look on Seesaw for photos from our trip. We are really looking forward to using our notes from the trip to help us create a real map next week.

Hand Puppets

Hand Puppets

During this half term, the children have been practicing running stitch and back stitch. The children have then designed and created their own hand puppet. The body of the puppet was stitched together by either running stitch or back stitch and the decoration was carefully glued on. Next half term, we will be using the hand puppets to create a stop motion film.

Go Berserk

Go Berserk

An amazing piece of homework created by one of our Year 4 students. Wonderful creativity used to design the Viking shield.

Year 6

Year 6

We are very excited to be back in Year 6! Last term was adventurous as we completed our refresher in multiplication and division, as well as our introduction to the world of the Early Islamic Empire. We have created Geometric art, shared presentations on the City of Discovery, and have had a very fun PE session mastering the Haka!    Ruben enjoyed writing a narrative in English as he says he has really liked describing being lost in the desert. In Maths, Harry enjoyed everything! He says, “Multiple digit addition and subtraction operations were interesting because it was like, hard, it was not easy. I like Maths”.  

This week we have continued our journey through the Early Islamic Empire, focusing on script writing, creativity and how to present work.  Vicky used descriptive writing in her work for History, which focused on the 5 Pillars of Islam. She shared, “I’ve really enjoyed History because not only were we able to be taught something new, but we were able to put it on Seesaw!”  This term Year 6 is looking forward to learning survival skills, applying team-work techniques and design. Check back in weekly to hear our thoughts on our continued learning and growth.
