Spring Week 1

What a great start to 2019! All the children in Class 5 have been thoroughly engaged and focus with our new topics, particularly our English Novel – Boy in the Tower by Polly Ho-Yen. We have been looking at features of this mystery text and have been using our inference and deduction skills to predict how the story will progress.

Our other new topics we have started this week are ‘Funky Furnishings’ and ‘Light and Shadow’. We have a few more lessons on South America, but we will then move onto the Anglo Saxons!

Just a quick reminder that our class trip is on Tuesday 15th and the children need to be at school for 8:15am so the coach can leave on time.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend – perhaps get a head start on grid homework! (remember 5 pieces, not 4).

See you Monday

Spring 1 Week 1

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all! We hope you had a lovely Christmas and a nice rest! THANK YOU all so much for your generous Christmas gifts!

We had a great first week back in Class 3!

In Maths we have been learning all about 3D shapes. We learned about their features such as edges, vertices and faces. We also discussed where we can find 3D shapes around us! 

In English we read the story 'Gorilla' by Anthony Browne and planned our own story based on the one we read. We are looking forward to writing our own version of this story next week! 

In RE we read the story of 'The Last Supper' and discussed how we can be servants to others, just like Jesus was a servant to his disciples.

in PE we played football and practised doing a forward roll!

Have a great weekend!

Spring - Week 1

Welcome back Class 2! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas holiday and are ready for the busy term ahead.

In English this week, we have been looking at adding the –ing, -ed and –er suffix to the end of root words. We have also completed a big write all about what we did during our Christmas break.

In maths, we have been doubling and halving a range of different numbers to 20 (and beyond!).

In addition to all of this, we have also started to learn about algorithms in computing, planted beans in science, practiced our tennis skills in PE and identified how London has changed since 1666 in history.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Leake

Spring 1, Week 1

Happy New Year and welcome back everyone! Hopefully you have all day a lovely Christmas and enjoyed your break. The children have come back to school full of beans this week and have got stuck into their learning; their reading in particular seems to have come on lots over Christmas!

We have started our new topic of superheroes this week and we began the theme by learning about some of the many superheroes the children knew about. We talked about what makes a hero, what they might look like and the children worked in groups to create their own superhero characters. Some of the heroes included Jaxon the Jelly Man, an evil genius who throws jelly at people, Heart Girl with the power to love, Super Shark, an undersea hero who can become invisible and Laser Man with the ability to shoot ‘statue rays’ at enemies!

The children have also been adding single digits numbers during their number work, taking part in ‘superhero training camp’ sessions (PE fitness circuits), writing whole pages of sentences about their favourite superheroes and of course, dressing up in our new superhero themed role play! A great first week back!

Other/ Reminders

  • The children are rising to the challenge of changing their own books each day!
  • Thank you to all parents who have returned badges to school this week.
  • A reminder that children will need both indoor and outdoor PE kits this term, in school at all times.

Merry Christmas from Class One!

Merry Christmas everyone! Well done to the Class One children who have all settled so well into their new school this term. The class have achieved o much already, it is hard to believe we are now a third of the way through the school year!

A big THANK YOU from all of the teachers for your kind gifts and cards to us all, we are blown away by your kindness!

We leave you with a few reminders and notices and wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Notices

  • All books and reading records have been collected in over the Christmas holidays so please do not worry when you cannot find them! Should you like to read over the holidays, you are more than welcome to use books from home or the library to indulge in some festive stories or perhaps even research our new topic of ‘Superheroes’ which starts after half term!
  • All lost property left in class has now been passed on to the big ‘lost property’ box situated outside of the office so please check this for any missing items.
  • Homework will start again after half term. Thank you for all of your hard work this term, the children loved showing their home-learning off in today’s assembly! It has now been sent home with the children to keep so that we can start afresh after the holidays.

Enjoy your holidays everyone and see you in the New Year!
