The children were very keen for me to share with you the pictures of the amazing Anglo Saxon village they created at the end of last year. It was a fantastic way to spend the last few days of term and I think you'll agree that their hard work really paid off. We had so many compliments from pupils and staff across the school.
What a busy first few weeks! We're all back in the swing of things and the children are already enjoying swimming lessons at Crown Pools and lots of year 5 work!
If any parent or carer would like to come and see me about the new academic year, please pop in after school Tues - Friday.
Reminders for all is that swimming kit will need to be in school every Monday until the end of the term; i.e. right up to December.
PE lessons will take place on Tuesday but keep your child's kit in school all week in case of one off lessons or visitors etc. The PE kits are kept in class even though the children change in the Year 4 changing rooms so please ensure that all items of clothing are named.
Clarinet classes for those who continued from last year are every Thursday.
That's all for now,
Mrs Harries and Mrs Shinkins
We had a super trip to West Stow the other week and I wanted to share some of the photos with you. Enjoy the slideshow!
We had a really lovely afternoon today, using all the Lego to build a variety of projects. Some children chose to recreate famous landmarks from around the world; some chose to follow instructions. Others simply used their imaginations and created their own models! The children used a lot of creativity, imagination and ingenuity. Most of all, I was impressed by the way they worked together and praised each other's work. A perfect end to a very busy week.
We had a lovely afternoon using different food stuffs to dye plain fabric. We used turmeric, coffee, beetroot, red cabbage, red onions and blueberries to create different colours. We will be using the fabric to make something special, so watch this space!
A bloody battle took place on the Rushmere Hall field today between opposing kingdoms. Unfortunately, too many casualties to count. The pictures tell the tale!
We've had a great week of identifying shapes and their properties in maths and the children have been investigation regular and irregular shapes.
Keep describing those quadrilaterals and polygons!
We have written a newspaper report in literacy this week about a strange incident with a mouse and a jar of Gobstoppers! Roald Dahl is keeping us entertained with his stories in 'Boy'.
Anglo - Saxons are our focus in history and where they came from and why they settled in England. Did you know that a place name with the word 'wich' in it, means 'farm' in Anglo- Saxon?
The Summer Term homework tasks are now ready for you! We always love seeing your work.....have fun!
A big thank you to all the adults and children who were able to join us for our end of topic performance of scenes from A Midsummer Night's Dream. I'm sure you will all agree that the children performed a collection of superb scenes from the play. Enjoy the slide show.
