Welcome back!

Welcome back!

We are all so excited to be back in school and have already got stuck in to our new topic: Traditional Tales. This week we are looking at the story of the Three Little Pigs and are thinking about the different materials used in the story. In Maths we are exploring the number zero and what zero looks like. In Phonics we are finishing up our Phase 2 recap.

Reminder: Meet the Teacher is being held this Thursday (16th January) from 2:30-3:00. Please do come along and meet the teachers working with your children. We’ll be passing on information about tapestry, this term, and are happy to answer any questions you may have. We hope to see you there!

Her majesty the Queen

Her majesty the Queen

Year 1 have had a great start to the new Spring term. We have started to explore our new topic ‘Her majesty the Queen’. We have been busy in English learning the story of ‘The Queen’s handbag’ which we had fun acting out. This was really useful for our writing. In Science we have been exploring Forces, in particular – push and pull. This has linked nicely to our D.T. where we have been thinking about how vehicles move. We’re looking forward to designing and making a vehicle for the Queen. Lastly, in PE we have been learning different ways of moving our bodies, practising gymnastics.

We are learning about traditional tales this week!

Year 1’s  Drama Workshop

Year 1’s Drama Workshop

The children in Year 1 have loved having a drama workshop visit us this week. The people who led our groups knew that Year 1 had an exciting topic called ‘Hakuna Matata’ and they thought about this topic with us. We made our own amazing land that had lots of different animals and scenery. We used actions and interesting voices to enjoy this experience and we even got the chance to build our land using lots of material. We thought carefully about what our land would look like and we used our imagination to show this- we also used our teamwork skills as we worked together! After we made our land we thought of characters that could live in different parts of the setting we created. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Carnival of the Animals

Carnival of the Animals

Year 2 have had a great first few weeks back. We are really enjoying learning all about our new topic ‘Carnival of the Animals’ and have already learnt some amazing facts about animals. In English we have been sharing the story ‘Meerkat mail’ and writing our own postcards based on the story. In science we have been exploring what animals eat, thinking about carnivores, omnivores and herbivores. In P.E we have been enjoying thinking about how animals move and representing this using our own movements.

We are looking forward to learning about Jane Goodall next week!

Welcome back Year Two!

Welcome back Year Two!

We have had a wonderful few days back in year two.

We would like to invite all parent/carers to our meet the teacher session on Thursday 9th January , starting at 2.30. It is a great opportunity to discuss what your children will be learning through the year.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Rocking through the Ages

Rocking through the Ages

Year 3 have had an enjoyable first few weeks back. We have started to explore our new topic ‘Rocking through the Ages’ where we are learning all about the Stone Age right through to the Iron Age. We have already transported ourselves back to the Stone Age and become hunter-gatherers, exploring the school grounds for assets in order to survive! In English we have been writing instructions on how to wash a Saber-toothed Tiger. In Science we have been exploring light and shadow. Lastly, in PE we have been enjoying learning to use our bodies to perform sequences to create a dance.

We are looking forward to seeing where our learning will take us over the next few weeks!

Year 3 Homework

Year 3 Homework

Miss Martin and I have enjoyed sharing all the children’s homework this term. We have had lots of fantastic Italian landmarks that have been carefully created.

We look forward to seeing what next terms homework activities will be!

Welcome back!

Welcome back!

A lovely first week back for the Year 4’s. They produced a wonderful assembly which discussed all things Vikings and they even sang a song with great enthusiasm. We are looking forward to the rest of the term.

Christmas Jumpers

Christmas Jumpers

It has been another busy week in Year 4 and the children have participated in numerous lessons. We ended the week with a lovely festive day wearing our Christmas jumpers. Hope you all have a lovely relaxing weekend and ready for our last week before the winter break.

Another busy week!

Another busy week!

This week we all enjoyed taking part in the vegetable workshops with Mrs Griffiths from the kitchen. We had fun learning about the different vegetables, how to prepare them and we hope you enjoyed eating them at home.


On Wednesday a few of us from Year 5 went to Hunters Down care home to share a book with the adults there. It is fair to say that we had a brisk walk there and everyone was really pleased that we had made the effort to visit and share some time

Windrush

Windrush

First of all a huge thank you for coming along to our celebration assembly on Thursday. The children really enjoyed performing for you and we were all very proud of them.

We are off to a great start with our new topic of rebuilding Britain and the children are learning a lot about what Britain was like after World War II. There have been many interesting discussions around evacuees, blackouts and the Blitz.

 

 

Hola y beinvenidos!

Hola y beinvenidos!

Welcome back to Year 6!  This week has been full of wondrous activities, such as cooking, the circulatory system, Holes, fractions and an introduction to Spanish.  In English we have been exploring parts of North America by beginning our next class reader: Louis Sachar’s Holes.  Pupils have been learning about the American state of Texas by following the strange tale of Stanley Yelnats as he is sent to Camp Green Lake.  Monday’s Geography allowed us to continue the subject of America by discovering the many countries which actually make up North America.    Maths has helped us exercise our brains and prepare for SATs by working out how to multiply and divide fractions.  The pupils have done quite well with expressing these concepts on Seesaw. As pupils spent last term learning about circuits in PE, this term Science and PE will focus on the Circulatory System.  Our week ended with an amazing cooking/food prep activity by our wonderful chef Mrs. Griffiths.  Please look for photos of the activity on Seesaw and leave a comment on how you and your family enjoyed the veggies we created.  

What a week!

What a week!

  Last week we all enjoyed a Panto version of Robin Hood, with Amelia thinking it was “very nice”, and Alicija adding, “It was AMAZING!  I really liked when they sang Shotgun. Everyone knew the song and it just made me smile!” This week we have continued to celebrate the season by practicing our Year 6 Christmas song (now changed to Jingle Bell Rock), as well as blending Christmas into the Maths curriculum by graphing holiday coordinates on a grid and finishing our geometrically inspired Christmas cards.  Guliano shared that he liked creating the patterns. Carrying on with Maths, we have been challenging ourselves to not only find and mark coordinates, but to also improve individual multiplication skills through a timed activity each morning. Liam likes this activity as, “It helps me ‘cause I learn them better…Like, I can get better at my 9 times-table and you could ask me anything and I can answer it really fast!”  Finally, English has been centered around inference and first person writing. After watching and inferring authorial intent, the pupils have written a diary entry as Edgar, the dragon from the John Lewis advert. Although we are all looking forward to some rest, please remember to keep your child’s brain active by checking out Seesaw and MangaHigh over the break.
