Congratulations to all the children for a fantastic performance of The Highwayman on Wednesday. Mr Smith and Mr Stock were so impressed, they have asked year 5 to perform again on Tuesday in front of the school.
Please bring in your black clothes again for Tuesday and go over your lines this weekend.
Our trip to Dance East this afternoon was a success. The performance of The Borrowers was incredible. Amazing creative dance which inspired most of us to want to have a go. We are looking forward to our dance workshops next term already.
The children have been give a 'sweet' or 'savoury' request reminder for next Wednesday's afternoon parties. Please check to see which colour your child has chosen.
Happy weekend to you all.
Everyone has been working extremely hard on their spy stories this week. We have written up to chapter 4 and we should be finished by next week. We'll share some of the highlights with you when they're completed so watch this space.
We're hoping to get vocal in geography with a debate next week concerning the pros and cons of tourism in our seaside resorts.
Another week of multiplication next week so get practising those times tables as some of us are a bit slow at quick recall.
areIt was a pretty soggy end to our field trip to Felixstowe before half term but we had a super time exploring the geography of the area, both physical and human.
We saw how important the port and tourism are to the economy of the area and enjoyed a few chips in the rain.
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?
