The Final Countdown

Where has this year gone! I just cannot believe we have 4 more days to go. Last week had still as much learning in and of course some super performances from The Mystery at Magpie Manor. Looking at all the fab pictures in the photo gallery just reminds me how much fun and learning comes from a production. The many cross curricular subjects involved and not forgetting the fun of learning.

Class 6 were also very mature whilst covering the information involved in our sex education and relationships programme.

We also had time to visit the field on a few occasions for our PE lessons to polish up on our rounders skills, ready for Monday.

We had time to also fit in some maths lessons which was good. It did seem very strange however on Thursday when no one was around at the gate , with the usual 'Morning Mrs Stewart'. It was lovely to hear about their day on Friday and I'm sure they will all have made a super first impression at their new schools.

Friday was however a little emotional. Each year we ask the children to walk a labyrinth and reflect on their time at St Ippolyts. The children each then gather pebbles as the think back and place memories into a small trinket. I stand watching each of them, with so many memories of my own. Mrs Jones also joined us. You will have the opportunity to see and hear some of these thoughts at our Leavers Service on Wednesday. 

Let us look to next week then and a few reminders.

A very exciting day after school tomorrow for our Staff v Year 6 leavers match. I hope you can join us. Year 6 please try to remember your PE kit please and trainers.

Please can the children, if they have not already completed, hand in their Leavers page. I have read so many lovely pages but do need them in by Monday.

Also I have been discussing and starting to work with the children on their leavers boards. For those children newer to Year 6 we ask you to gather a range of items that show your journey of primary school years. These items are then displayed. You of course will be able to take these home on Thursday with you.

Tuesday is our Leavers BBQ for Year 6 and hope that the beautiful weather stays. Leavers service on Wednesday pm.

Last but not least, it may be an idea to bring some plastic bags in as we will be distributing things. Please can you also have a good look at home and return any library books or badges that you may still have.

Remember to try and keep learning your songs and words for the service.

See you all tomorrow!

Class 4 in July

How is it already July!

We've been busy again with production rehearsals and it is looking very good! We are very excited for you all to see it - not long now! Please make sure your child has all of their costume in school from now on. 

Year 3 - Magpies - Black and white clothing

Year 4 - Servants - Black/brown/cream/grey clothing (lots of people are using last year's Victorian outfits - great idea!)

 

In Maths we have been learning about angles. In Science, we have learnt more about the digestive system! In RE today, we have looked at symbols to represent ourselves. We have almost finished the sock monkys (They are SO brilliant!)

 

Last two weeks Class 4...

Please don't forget to return report slips and parent questionnaires. 

 

See you at the summer fair!

Class 4 in the summer!

We've been very busy in Class 4 these last few weeks as the production rehearsals are underway! The children have worked very hard to learn the songs and dance moves and are performing with great enthusiasm. Please ensure your child's full custome is in school, labelled, by Monday.

In English we have finished our unit of Explanation texts. We looked at a variety of different things to explain including some imaginative responses on how a TV actually works! The children have worked very hard with their writing these year and I have loved reading their recounts of our class book, Charlie Small.

In Maths we have become experts in short written division! They really got the hang of the bus stop method and it was really good to see so many links being made between multiplication and division. Today we took on some investigation challenges involving money - good work!

Enjoy the sunshine class 4, why don't you have a dance and practise the songs whilst in the garden this week?

 

Please ensure water bottles, snack boxes and all clothes are labelled as we having lots of things left behind!

Seems like a short week!

Well a short week back and it has been quite a week.

A lot of tired and exhausted children arrived back on Monday evening after a super, fun packed activity weekend at Osmington Bay. We hope you enjoyed seeing all the snaps, a lot of great memories.

Of course we were not in on Tuesday but catching up on rest. We were back to it on Wednesday. Mrs Massie was ready to greet us with our weekly French lesson. Bonjour! Who would have thought that only a week ago Class 6 was actually a French cafe. Being back meant we could get started on this years production. It is lovely to hear Keystage 2 in fine voice. You should have also received a costume letter today.

It wasn't the only thing we needed to prepare...just a small thing of a PGL assembly for the school and parents. I could obviously see that some children were back into their journal adding even more writing to them. I did enjoy reading them. I do hope you enjoyed seeing the photo story presentation today;a great way to show how brilliant the children were over the weekend. 

Also a huge congratulations to those children who came first at the cricket tournament yesterday. I've lost track of how many sporting achievements this year. Amazing!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Mrs Stewart
