Class 2 Year 2 said they enjoyed P.S.H.E. because of all of the fruit and vegetable tasting.  English was my favourite because it was 'The Gingerbread Man' story and we learned about word types to do with him. Tennis was fun.  I liked Science because it's about nature (plants and animals).  Learning about different measures this week in maths has been good.  I love phonics, maths and English.   I love all the school dinners.  I am looking forward to finding out what our new topic is in R.E.  I can't wait for football with Nick on Friday afternoon and golden time.

 

Class 3 This week we have all enjoyed DT and have made models of electric games. 

I have enjoyed lunch and RE.

I have enjoyed Maths & PE.

 

Class 4

We have enjoyed learning how to interpret data using line graphs and dual bar charts in maths.

I have enjoyed practising bowling and batting skills in PE.

We have enjoyed starting our new art topic, researching and sketching Greek vases. We are looking forward to painting and creating  clay pots.

In Science, I have enjoyed our new topic 'Electricity', finding out what electricity is. We learnt some new vocabulary, molecules atoms, protons and neutrons. 

In computing, we really enjoyed finding out how machines learn and artificial intelligence.

Class 1 have had a busy but exciting week. We have been experimenting with salt dough and designing our own egg decorations. We talked about the different patterns we could use and the different colours. We have been outside to look at the different flowers growing in our garden, we then did some observational drawings of them with oil pastels and used them to make our Easter cards, completely independently. In maths we have been working with bigger numbers and trying different ways to help us (moving, crossing out, labelling). We have completed our phonics assessments for the half term and are very proud of how well we are doing. At Forest Schools we enjoyed going on an egg hunt, following on from our book of the week “We’re going on an Egg Hunt).

We hope you all have a lovely Easter break!

 

Class 2 have worked hard writing, editing and re-drafting their stories this week.  They have improved their singing and memory of the Easter service song words and clapping rhythms.  The Year 2’s have maturely begun practising for their SATS and are so enthusiastic about SATs club.  The children are learning about mass in maths and are developing their maths talk using caparison vocabulary.   In PSHE we were learning about the importance of money and how to keep money safe.  The class showed they had remembered lots about living things in the end of unit quiz this week.  Pupils have worked so hard this this half-term and have certainly earned a relax, recharge and rest over the Easter holidays.  Well done Class 2, super resilience shown this week!

 

Class 3 have worked really hard this week.  We have finished our epic explanations about volcanoes.  They had razor-sharp focus in getting their writing edited and re-drafted.  Amazing effort!  We have also been working on fractions in Maths and everyone is enjoying this and showing great understanding.  We have been designing switches in Science/DT and we will be making torches after the Easter holidays.  We have also been doing lots of singing this week in preparation for our Easter service.  In RE, we learned more about the Easter Story by creating a cross with feelings throughout the story such as despair and hope.  We have all earned a good rest now and be ready for a new start and our new topic of Romans.  

 

Class 4 This week, Class 4 have enjoyed practising the Easter service, we have witnessed some beautiful singing and everyone has learnt their lines. In Science, the children have been investigating how light enables us to see colour. They have used coloured filters to test Isaac Newton's Theory. 

The children have been writing their own versions of the story 'One Plastic Bag' using everything they have learnt this half term, to be the best authors they can be.

Everyone enjoyed 'Godly Play' led by Mrs Dalgleish, she was very impressed with their ideas and discussion.

Today, the children have created Easter crafts, while they have reflected on the meaning of Easter.

Have a lovely Easter Class 4, you have all been amazing!

 

SPORTS

Well done to our Key Step gymnasts who achieved 3rd place in the finals.  Our Year 4 footballers were also on the ball and did a great job at representing school at their recent tournament! 

Class 1

Nursery - We liked doing drawings of daffodils; we used yellow for the flower and green for the stem. 

Reception - In maths we have been doing odd and even numbers.

We are growing cress seeds in our cress heads. We will look at them to see what happens.

Reception - We have got ready for awesome endings this afternoon.

 

Class 2

I liked it when the mayor came.  His mace and sword where so special.  My story is going to be amazing! Story writing needs lots of perseverance! I loved tennis because we had the best coach, tennis was fabulous, it was the best, I enjoyed playing tennis.  I love doing star of the day and lunchtime.  Making symmetrical patterns in art was great, my egg is colourful.  Phonics play is fun, we practised reading words with split diagraphs.  

 

Class 3 This week in Class 3, we enjoyed:

Maths – we were learning how to make the whole in fractions. 

RE with Mrs Dinwoodie when we learned about the Easter story. 

We have also enjoyed English we finished our explanation text about volcanos.

We have really enjoyed godly play with Mrs Dalgleish, discovering the mystery of Easter.

 

Class 4

We really enjoyed creating pieces of art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy, using natural materials outside. It was fun and creative.

We enjoyed tag rugby because we practised our skills, spatial awareness and teamwork.

I enjoyed meeting the mayor because we had the opportunity to look at his mace and chains.

Geography was very interesting because we researched Greta Thunberg and how she was helping to save the planet.

Our refraction experiments were really surprising because I was shocked at the results. It was like a magic trick!

Class 1 We have had a very productive week in Class One.

We have been creating our Mothers’ Day cards – we hope you love how unique they are, the children put lots of thought, effort, and love into them all.

In maths we have been learning our doubles – we have a doubles song to help us!

We are working hard with our sentence writing and have used this to write about different kinds of habitats.

We have begun practising our poem for Awesome Endings – we are trying hard to use our loud voices.

At Forest School we enjoyed making pitta pizzas and making homes for the woodland creatures Mrs Turney had found.

In PSED we have been talking about ways we can help those who help us, and also ways we can help our friends. Everyone came up with lots of lovely ideas. We made ‘Help Pledges’, so hopefully some of you may have some helpers over the weekend!

 

Class 2 have warmly welcomed Miss Chambers into Class 2 this week.   They were eager to learn about the author 'Beatrix Potter' in our new narrative unit and had lots of enthusiasm for Peter Rabbit.  We learned about the North and South Pole in Geography, finding out about the differences between the two polar regions.  In Science we went on a microhabitats hunt, finding woodlice, worms and a few other minibeasts in our search.  We continued printing during art whilst card making.  They were programming pros in our last programming computing lesson, all achieving programming certificates which are now in out computing class book.  I'm always so proud of the support the children give one another (and adults) during computing lessons, to help one another as technical difficulties arise.   Another great week, finished with our wonderful action songs this morning.  A big thank you to Mrs Dinwoodie in helping us learn these songs.

 

Class 3 This week in Class 3, we have been building our writing skills by writing explanations.  We used a book about the Digestive System to learn about explanation texts and we are starting to write on our own.  Our explanations will be all about volcanoes.  Science involved making simple circuits and testing how changing the number of bulbs can affect a circuit.   In Geography, it has been all about the volcanoes, learning the types of volcanoes and where in the world they are.  In Maths, we are practising measuring and learning how to calculate the perimeter.  We got crafty at the end of the week and all will be revealed on Sunday. We enjoyed taking part in non-uniform day for Comic relief and found out what charities and causes Comic Relief supports.  We also tried to make each other laugh!  

 

Class 4 performed amazingly at the Music and Drama festival. They sang with such enthusiasm and professionalism. We were so proud of everyone, such a talented bunch of children!

In Science this week, we have been learning about how light reflects, the children made their own periscopes and tested them out. In Geography, the children designed information leaflets to inform their audience about the effects of climate change around the world. In English, everyone has enjoyed writing a diary entry in the character of 'Isatou'. This half term, our key text is linked to Climate Change, we are recognising that everyone can make small changes and have a positive impact on the environment. 

 

MUSIC & DRAMA FESTIVAL

What amazing performances from Class 2 & 4 at the Music & Drama Festival this week!  You sang beautifully.  We have also had solo performers who have done amazingly well too.  You have all represented school so wonderfully and we are very proud of each and every one of you!  Well done to you all for putting such hard work in which has paid off!

Class 1 “When Mr Barnes to teach our PE. I liked it all”.

“I liked telling my friends all about my Daddy’s new car, it’s brilliant inside!”.

“When we were doing the Peter Rabbit and Mr McGregor game in PE”.

“Going to Forest School, I loved everything”.

“I liked writing what we had for breakfast and our voting station”.

“We played in the forest and had pancakes from the fire”.

“Cooking the pancakes at Forest School”.

“I loved trying popcorn, we listened for the pop pop pop!”.

 

Class 2

We loved watching Class 3's dance in the hall.  P.E. is fun.  I like tag rugby.    Art was good.  I liked making a printing block from potatoes and clay.  I enjoyed printing.   I like science, maths, English, music, R.E., lunch and playtimes.  I like phonics.  I love reading time.

In French we learnt how to say 10 different instruments. 

We enjoyed PE with Mr Barns. 

We have enjoyed writing about the Gut Garden.

 

Class 4 We have enjoyed practising our singing for the Music and Drama festival. We have improved lots!

In Science, we have enjoyed investigating light, finding out about 'The colour spectrum'. We used prisms to see the colours of the rainbow when light was refracted. We created a colour wheel to show that white appears when the wheel is spinning fast because the colours mix together.

We are improving our skills in PE (tag rugby) and are ready for a rugby game next week. 

We have really enjoyed taking part in drama and role play this week in English, placing ourselves in the shoes of the main character. We also took turns in 'The Hot Seat' asking and answering questions about ‘Isatou'. We are reading a story from another culture called 'One Plastic Bag' and I really enjoyed making predictions about the events so far.
