In PSHE, Year 4 have been learning about debates. We looked at 3 scenarios and debated if we strongly agree, agree, strongly disagree or disagree. The children put their view points across very sensibly.
Reception children are really enjoying music sessions delivered by Mr Morrison every Tuesday. They have been learning all about rhythm. They have joined in with moving to music that has long and short sounds.
This week, in Nursery, we have been taking turns on our class computer. First, we talked about how to use the computer and how to stay safe. We talked about what we needed to do if something came up that we were unsure about. We then had a go at selecting the the different tools and using them to draw and write. It was lots of fun!
Hassan has done an excellent job of creating his page for Rowan’s Reading Journal. He chose Ultimate Rocket Blast by @Zendibble, which is a class favourite. The children loved reading his information about the author and they now understand why there are so many science links in the series! #reading #Year6
Year 5 used role play to bring to life a conversation between King Prasutagus and his wife, Boudicca. They focused on the delivery of the King’s lines as he was dying, before brainstorming adverbs to describe how the King spoke. We think they did a fantastic job of showcasing the King speaking “hoarsely”, “croakily” and “gruffly”!
In Year 2, we have been learning about Madagascar. Did you know Madagascar is famous for it’s vanilla? It supplies 80% of the world’s natural vanilla! Here are some facts we have found out so far.
Year 4 had a fantastic time visiting the Police museum when it came to school. We learnt all about how the police force uniform and equipment has changed over time and lots of facts about the Victorian era and how they laws and punishments changed since then for the better! #lawandorder #britishvalues #police
This week, the children in Reception are learning all about counting, ordinality, cardinality and composition of numbers up to 6 through the White Rose Maths scheme and NCETM programme. They have really enjoyed exploring and making the number 6 in different ways.
Year 6, have been working extremely hard during their English lessons this week. They have been trying to use ambitious vocabulary and different types of figurative language to describe a street scene during World War 2. We are delighted with their descriptions. Here are a couple of examples of the fantastic work that they have produced.
In today’s blog post, we are going to talk about an important topic – mental health. Sometimes life can be overwhelming, and it’s crucial to learn effective coping mechanisms to help us navigate through challenging times. One popular tool we looked at in Year 5 is that many people find it helpful to use stress balls. These small, squishy balls can be squeezed and manipulated, allowing us to release tension and stress!
Year 4 have been learning about internet safety as part of Internet Safety Day. We looked at technology through time and then made a leaflet on Purple Mash. #internet safety #purplemash #esafety
We are super proud of our latest pen licence winners! They have worked tirelessly to improve their handwriting and presentation and this award is thoroughly deserved!
Well done to our winners of the ‘Star of the Week’ award last week! They have all worked exceptionally hard and we are really proud of their achievements – keep up the good work!
The three little pigs didn’t feel safe living in the same town as the wolf. Year 1 created a new land for the wolf to live in. Take a look at their excellent drawing skills.
This week we have been busy designing and starting the making process of a 3D mask of one of the Big 5 in Africa – a lion, inspired by Julie Taymor. We created papier mache using balloons, PVA glue and lots of newspaper. It got very messy!
This week, Year 5 conducted a science investigation to determine which exercise has the greatest impact on our heart rates. Our scientists were thorough in ensuring it was a fair test and even used stethoscopes to measure their pulses, before creating a digital line graph using Purple Mash! #dimensionscc #scientists #investigations
Year 2 have been celebrating Number day! We have been playing games using a dice to count and we have been looking at shapes and their properties. We have created our own repeating patterns using shapes.
Year 4 have been learning about Banksy and his work in art. We learned how he uses his art to give his opinion about events that are happening in the world. Children also imitated this style and drew images to portray slavery. They added key words to their images #banksy #art #meaningful
