School Open as usual Tuesday 12th December

School will reopen as usual tomorrow morning.

We are very grateful to Mr Dickens who has been on site clearing pathways today but please take extra care as some areas are likely to still be slippery.  If there is still snow around, children will be able to go out to play in it if they have a suitable change of footwear such as wellies/boots.  

The Carol Service will go ahead as planned. 

 

Kind regards

Autumn 2, Week 6

We have had a very festive week in Class 2. We have all been really busy designing and making our Christmas hats, cards and calendars. In Maths, we have continued to learn all about 2D shapes and their properties. We have also completed an independent big write where we had to finish the end of the story about Santa and why he thought he had ruined Christmas.

Reminders:

-      The carol service takes place on Tuesday 12th December at 2:15pm.

-      The children have been provided with costumes at school ready for Tuesday’s carol service. Any additional pieces of clothing that the children may need will be found written in their monkey book.

-      Please ensure that the children learn their lines and the hymn words ready for Monday’s rehearsal.

-      On Friday, the children chose what food they would like to bring to the class party on Monday 18th December. You will get a slip to inform you of their choice on Monday.

-      PE kits will go home on Friday and any kit left un-named in the classroom will go to the lost property box next to the front office.

Have a lovely weekend.

It's almost christmas!

A very busy week again in Class 4! We have been learning about length, mass and time in maths this week and converting between these units. It was very interesting, we even measured the snowman going on our christmas hats! In English,we have been doing some fantastic descriptive writing based on the John Lewis Christmas Advert (Moz the Monster). We've been improving our work by using synonyms and new words we haven't heard of before. We even got a chance to "Magpie" ideas from others in the class. It's been lovely gettings into the 'christmas spirit' with Class 4 this week, please see the slip sent home with details for our Christmas party and what each child has suggested to bring (Monday 18th).

Reminders: Please label snack boxes and water bottles

Grid homeworks should be completed soon, 6 pieces are needed!

Christmas Carol Service is in the Church on Tuesdat at 2:15pm

 

Have a lovely weekend, Miss Gale

Full of Festive Fun

I wanted to start by saying a huge well done to Class 6 for last week and their help during the Christmas Fair. Everyone worked hard on designing some great games, which seemed to go down really well.

 

So what has happened over this week?

Monday started off with testing our weekly spellings alongside our dictation. We then went on to look at ways in which to improve our writing, whilst improving our knowledge of GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling). As part of our early morning work this week, we have been taking a festive picture and then having to create 5 different sentences to form a paragraph. You may think that is easy but not when the sentences have to demonstrate specific skills.

For example: 1. Contain a preposition expressing time. 2. subordinate clause. 3. contain a proper noun. 4. metaphor. 5. exclamation sentence. These are just a few.  We also discussed that this could be something that we could have a go as part of our daily reading. This time identifying these as we read, then logging a few examples in our home school contact books. Following on from this we got to work and paired up to write to the Governors, inviting them to our annual Christmas dinner. Today we received a number of replies and look forward to Christmas dinner on Wednesday. It was also our last day of swimming this week so no swimming kits required for Monday.

We have moved away this week from The Spiderwick Chronicles but have had plenty of opportunities to write across the curriculum and for a number of purposes. Having had so many preparations with the lead up to Christmas we decided to look at how the local church and school prepare for this festive time of year. As we talked and listed all the events that happen, we were quite shocked at how much goes on, in such a short period. We decided to then put this together as an explanatory extended piece of writing, which our Golden Chair pupil shared today in celebration assembly.

You will be pleased to hear that we also managed to record and finalise our dance routine on Wednesday. As we have had a few people off, we are going to try and record again hopefully next week, as we are all really pleased with the finished product and would love everyone to be in the recording. In French this week, Ms Massie had the children designing Christmas jumpers. They had to label their designs in French and discuss what they were like to each other. Some great designs!

All the Year 6 children loved watching the dress rehearsal of the Class 1 nativity ‘Shine Star Shine’. I was also very pleased with the group of year 6 children who were asked to narrate the script. I still find it hard as it only seems like yesterday that they were Class 1… and yes were with me.

In Maths we have been persevering with our work on geometry. We have looked at the understanding of circles and calculating the diameter and radius in various ways. This led us onto calculating the exterior and interior angles in regular polygons. I have to say a big well done for using your learning powers Class 6.

It has not been all work and no fun. It has been like Santa’s little workshop at times through the week, as we have been busy making Christmas items ready to bring home to our family and also sorting and delivering the daily Christmas post.

Well lots more to look forward to next week and shall put these on the reminders. It has been lovely to see another great range of homework being produced over this half term and remember to keep a check on how many you have managed.  Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

Mrs Stewart
