Spring 2, Week 4

We have had a fantastic time in Class One this week, taking part in lots of science themed activities! This year’s school theme was ‘Outer Space Science’ which linked nicely with our class topic! Some of the activities we took part in included making the different moon phases out of Oreo cookies, creating our own mini-solar systems using oranges, making space shuttles, paper parachutes and lots more!

In other science we have been bug-hunting in our school nature area and had great fun naming our insects and observing how many legs, shells and wings they had. We have also been learning all about Earth as a planet including the layers of the Earth, why volcanoes happen and even making our own volcanoes using bicarbonate soda, vinegar and washing up liquid.

Next week we are starting to learn the about the Easter story and will be taking part in our school’s ‘Experience Easter’ celebration workshops on Tuesday. We will also be starting our mini topic all about nocturnal creatures!

Enjoy your weekends,

Class One

Well done to the Y3/4 Cricket Team!

Yesterday, the Y3/4 Cricket team travelled to Ware to compete in the county cricket finals, representing our district. They played absolutely brilliantly – they won all of their heat matches, were the highest scoring team of the whole tournament but narrowly missed out on the county title in the final match. This places them as the 2nd best team across the whole of Hertfordshire – absolutely fantastic! We are so proud of the team; they have been training hard with Mr Smith and have shown fabulous team spirit and sportsmanship throughout. Well done!

Red Nose Day Fun - Assessment Week Done !

I could not be more proud of Class 6 this week. Everyone has tried so hard, giving 100% effort into all of their assessments. Their enthusisasm and eagerness to see how they have done has been amazing. I'm sure if you ask them they shall let you know as they were making notes as the week moved on.

A lot of this week in the morning has involved assessments but we have still managed to squeeze in other subjects as always...busy,busy,busy.

We focused our attention mainly around Science in preparation for Science days next week. We had many great discussions and learning around how nutirents travel around the body and how a healthy diet and exercise can impact on our bodies.

We then made connections with maths and in particular data handling. Sometimes it is just as important to get some data already collated and then put this into the best graph. We took some Olympic 100 metre results for men and women and compared them on a line graph. After this we drew conclusions from the graph and data, answering specific questions as well;a little extra comprehension for a different purpose.

PE yesterday was great fun as CLass 5 and 6 joined together to go and polish up on our rounders skills. Mrs Stewart even managed a rounder, so didn't let the class down.

I hope you are all enjoying the last little bit of Red Nose Day 2019 or may even see some on the TV. Assembly at the end of the school day was a sea of red, which made everyone happy. Having the chance to celebrate the sporting achievements, golden chair awards and all the badges that were awarded was lovely. Dominic ended the day with a beautiful prayer which he had written for his grid homework.

Look forward to seeing you all next week and have a bit of a rest and recharge those bodies for more fun next week.

Spring 2 Week 3

The children worked really hard on their assessments this week and we look forward to sharing your child's results with you at parents evening.

This week we also did some paper weaving as part of our DT topic!

In RE we read the story of Jesus healing the leper and thought about what we can learn from this story. 

We really enjoyed dressing up for Red Nose Day. Thank you all for your generous donations!

As it was a busy week with assessments, we were unable to read with all of the children. We will make sure we catch up with our 1:1 readers next week! 

Have a lovely weekend!

Mrs Weston and Mrs Pateman
