Summer week 5

We have had a very Royal week in Class 2! As a class, we wrote a letter to the Queen which today has been posted to Buckingham Palace to tell the Queen all about our last history topic. We ended the week today with a Royal tea party with Class 1. We ate jam scones and finger sandwiches and played pin the veil on the bride. Watch out for some photos of our party on the website soon.

This week the children in year 2 have been working extremely hard on their quizzes, while the years 1’s have been equally working hard on creating, planning and writing their own story book.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and enjoy watching the Royal wedding.

Summer Week 5

Class 5 have been working extremely hard this week, particularly in English. Not only have we written our own versions of the opening of Macbeth, but written a letter from Macbeth telling Lady Macbeth of the prophesies bestowed upon him and a diary entry as Lady Macbeth, plotting to ensure the prophesies come true! The children have been using fantastic language and really getting into the Shakespearean way of thinking and talking.

Just a reminder that four pieces of grid homework are due by next Friday - completed to a good standard please. 

Have a lovely weekend,

Nature Explorers and Zoo Researchers

We've had another busy week in Class 4 and I couldn't be more proud of them!

We had an excellent trip to RSPB Rye Meads where we explored their 'Secret Garden' for invertebrates. We looked under logs and tree stumps and fished with nets in the long grass and nettles. We then used classification keys to organise them invertebrates and name unusual bugs! We discovered a blue nettle bug and a yellow wasp beetle - none of us had even seen one of those before! Do take a look at the website for the photos and see if you can spot the massive slug that Amelia's group found! The staff at Rye Meads said that our children had 'amazing enthusiasm and impeccable behaviour' and I couldn't agree more! Well done Class 4.

In English and Maths we have been continued with our learning about Zoos. We created surveys which we then took home, thank you for all the fantastic and quick responses! This allowed us to collect results in our small groups so we had a wide range of opinions! We then created graphs, which were accurate and clear representation of using learning powers for presentation. Again, Class 4 have had such a brilliant attitude to this learning and have been brilliant researchers! 

Don’t forget next Wednesday is Sports day!

Also, talent show reply slips needs to be returned by Wednesday.

As the weather is getting hotter, please make sure your child has a hat and a bottled water. Both should be labelled.

Have a lovely weekend!

Week 4, Summer!

 

Class 4 have had a fantastic week, impressing so many people with their learning!

We’ve started a new topic in English, discussion texts, which was started by discussing what to do with our village’s beloved hedgerow that was going to be destroyed by Farmer Crawley to create a diary factory. Destroying the Hedgerow affected so many animals and plants but building a dairy farm created new jobs and lots of money, what should we do? The children discussed their views with great reasoning and then wrote letters to Farmer Crawley explaining they views and wishing to persuade him. Now we’ve moved on to discussing Zoos and whether or not we agree with them, it has provoked some interesting reasons so far.

In Maths, we’ve continued to work on time with reading digital and analogue clocks. Some children have begun to solve calculations with time. We’ve definitely had to use our resilience learning powers with this one as it can be a little bit tricky.

In Topic we are continuing to debate whether Ancient Greece or Ancient Rome did more for us, I think our views change every day! So far we have compared way of life, sanitation and cleanliness.

We’ve continued to work on classification of living things and habitats in Science. We have learnt the different type of animals under vertebrates and use our knowledge to classify animals and create new animals of our own. We’re very much looking forward to our trip next week to tie in all our learning in real life mini beast hunts.

Fab week Class 4!

Please do remember it is our trip on Tuesday 15th, if you haven’t already paid please do via school gateway as this counts as consent for your child to attend the trip. Please arrive at school through the normal door promptly as we need to leave as soon as we’re ready. Your child needs to wear trainers, a hat, and sun cream and have their packed lunch in a bag on their back.

Class 5 School Trip - Thursday 10th May

Wednesday 9th May 2018 RE: Class 5 School Trip Thursday 10th May.

Just a final reminder for the arrangements for tomorrow:

• Children need to be at school at 8am, in school uniform. They will be able to enter school via their usual class 5 door – I will be there.

• Children must have a packed lunch for the day. Although we will be leaving Royston at 12pm, we will not return in time for the usual school lunch hour.

• Payment must have been made prior to leaving in the morning, as this acts as consent for your child to go – without payment and consent, your child will not be able to take part.

See you tomorrow! 

Miss Walker :)
