Autumn 2, Week 2

What a busy week we have had in Class One! This week we have started our mini-topic of dinosaurs! The children have had lots of fun taking part in some of the dinosaur themed activities we have set out in class, including digging for fossils in sand, creating their own model dinosaur, using the dino’ swamp tuff tray (complete with green water) and even using the computers to find out more about their favourite Jurassic creature. Ask us more about our learning at home to see what we can remember!

In other news this week. we had an extra special PE lesson on Monday with Stevenage Sporting Futures…’Pudsey PE!’ we had lots of fun, thank you so much for all of your children in need donations this week. We have also been having lots of fun in our new ‘Costa Coffee’ themed role play all week using our money skills and acting abilities, our teachers have enjoyed watching us act in role!

Parents Evening slips have gone out in book bags today to let you all know which time your appointment is. Whilst we always try our best to fit everyone in with their preferred time, this year lots of parents wanted a similar time which has proved a little tricky. If any of you are unable to make your time, please come and see me and let me know.

If any children have effort/ values/ achievement badges at home from previous weeks, can they please be returned on Monday?

Next week we begin to learn songs for our upcoming Nativity! How is it this time of year already?! Be prepared for your children to come home singing some rather catchy Christmas tunes!

Class 5, Autumn 2, Week 2

This week Class 5 have been working hard on both their topics; World War 1 and Harry Potter.

In English, we have been drafting our own narrative writing where we could choose our own title and characters to focus on. Some of our titles were, ‘The Imaginary Vault’, Ron’s Lucky Day’, ‘Hermione’s Accident’ and ‘The Lost Wand’. We have had to include a lot into our writing including fronted adverbials, relative clauses and pronouns, parenthesis and direct speech. We are looking forward to sharing some of these at our class assembly.

On Tuesday, a travelling theatre company came in to show a play about WW1. We all participated really well with our knowledge of how the war started. It was funny but emotional and made many of us think.

We have had a go at making our own Propaganda posters, writing poems about the animals in war and found out about how the war ended.

In RE we had a go at answering our Big question, ‘ What is the most important value to you and why?’ – there were some great answers.

We would like to remind you that our class assembly is on Friday 30th November 2018 at 2:30pm

Unfortunately, Class 5 were unable to have their flu jabs today so will be having them at another time.

From Class 5.

Autumn Class 4 week 9 and 10

We’ve had a very busy two weeks back at school! It has been filled with learning about WW1. The children have been very keen to learn about this whilst also sharing what they already know -including family history! We were very lucky to have a drama production called Lest We Forget on Tuesday morning, the children thoroughly enjoyed this. It consolidated their learning and deepened their awareness of what it would have been like for the people of Britain in WW1.

Around this, we have had assessment week. They have responded really well to the assessments and have really shown me what they know! Impressive stuff!

In English, we’ve moved onto our new topic around a short film called Home Sweet Home. The children have been extending their writing with better description and better word choices.

In Maths, we have done lots of reasoning and problem solving around fraction and proportions. We used the bar model for this which was knew to the children and a bit tricky to start with!

Brilliant two weeks all round!

Have a lovely weekend

Autumn 2 Week 1

What a busy week had in Class 3! 

We enjoyed our first PHSE&C lesson taught by the Go 2 project from Stevenage Borough Council. The children had fun making fruit kebabs from mangoes, raspberries, plums, blueberries and grapes. Some children who had never tried mango before commented that they thought it tasted 'sweet and delicious'. We spent the rest of the week completing our assessments and learning all about World War 1 and Remembrance Day. We talked about what it would've been like to be alive during the war and we discussed why the poppy has become such an important symbol. We also spent some time making poppies which we used to decorate our classroom. We had a special day on Friday all about Remembrance Day and the children contributed with some lovely thoughts and prayers.

We are really excited about our trip to the Roald Dahl museum next Wednesday 14th November. Please ensure your child arrives at school on time and has a packed lunch for the trip. We are aiming to get back before the end of the school day so pick up will be as normal.

We hope you're having a lovely weekend!
