See you all on Tuesday.

Easter homework

To keep your brains active over the Easter holidays I will post some activities for you to do on the School Wall. In addition to this, keep reading regularly and practise your times tables we have learned so far this year (3, 4, 6 and 8).

 

Our new topic when we return is 'Best Books'. I would like you to have a look on your book shelves at home and find your 'best book' and bring it to school to share it with us on the first day back.

 

Have fun!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone.

 

I hope you all have a good holiday and rest. Fingers crossed the sun continues to shine.

 

See you after the break.

Easter Celebration morning

Dear Parents,

 

If you are unable to attend Wednesday morning's Easter Celebration and you would still like your child to have refreshments, please send £1 in to school with them on the day. They will be able to enjoy the refreshments with a member of staff unless there is another parent (in the same time slot) who you would like them to join. Please let us know if this is the case.

 

Many thanks.

Easter topic

Hello children,

 

I have put some new activities on the School Wall linked to our new Easter topic. There is a maths activity too.

 

See you on Monday.

Y4 transition sport festival

What a busy day we've had today! You all did very well this afternoon at Alvechurch Middle School. It was lovely to see you trying your best (and some games were quite challenging) with the older Year 5 children and getting to know some of the children you may be with in September.  Once again, you were a credit to our school with your outstanding behaviour and attitudes. From watching you all today, I know that you will all be ready in September to move to middle school and have a happy and successful time.

 

Well done Year 4s.

Pirate Day

Well done Blue Class. I was so proud of all of you today for your performance in our family assembly. Your singing, dancing and story telling were all fantastic and it was lovely to see you all perform with great confidence. I have had lovely comments from your parents who thought you were all brilliant! I think we have a few budding actors and actresses in the class!

 

Our pirate morning was also a huge success which was down to all your hard work over the last few weeks and your excellent communication skills. Your parents enjoyed taking part in your treasure hunt challenge as well as all the other things to see and do.

 

We will finish our pirate topic on Friday by writing your very own pirate story. So, over the next few days you might want to start thinking about what exciting adventures you might include in your story upon the Seven Seas.

 

Once again, very well done for your fantastic performance and work today.

 

See you tomorrow.

Pirates

Hello Children,
 
I hope you are enjoying your half term break. I am looking forward to seeing you next week when we start our 'Pirates' topic. Remember you can come to school on Monday dressed as a pirate. I will put some pirate activities on the School Wall to help get your brains into 'Pirate' mode!  Yo ho ho!

Blackwell Film Festival

What a super day! Well done to all of you for your excellent acting, music playing and enthusiasm. Your grown ups had great big smiles on their faces as they watched your performance. I'm looking forward to reading your own versions of the Pied Piper that you have written this weekend.
 
Have a nice weekend and I'll see you on Monday ready to start a new topic.

Retell

Hello Blue Class,

We will be recording our Pied Piper retell this week so remember to practise your part at home so that you will be able to perform with confidence and enjoyment. There will be some 'Oscars' presented on Friday!

See you tomorrow.

Boxes and kitchen rolls!

Dear Parents,

Next week, the children in Blue Class will be making trophies for our 'Oscars' ceremony as part of our Blackwell Film Festival project. I would be grateful if you could start saving small boxes, kitchen roll holders etc for the children to use to make their trophies. Please send them into school next week.

Many thanks,

Miss Townsend

6 times table

Hello Blue Class,

Last half term you worked hard learning your 3 and 4 times tables and corresponding division facts. This half term we are going to be learning the 6 times table and corresponding division facts. We will keep revisiting the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables so that we don't forget them!

Learning them at home as well as at school will help you significantly. Here are some ideas for you.

  1. First, practise counting in 6s.
  2. Then, write the 6 times table out and see if you notice any patterns that might help you.
  3. After that, identify those that you already know by heart.
  4. Next, choose 2 tricky times table facts a day to keep going over until you have memorised them.
If you practise regularly you'll soon know them by heart. Once you know your 6 times table you'll be able to recall the corresponding division facts too.

Ask your parents to play games with you which involve recalling the 6 times table and corresponding division facts. I'll put some games on the School Wall which will help you too.

Keep working hard. It will be worth it!

Wendy and Peter Pan

Hello Blue Class,

I hope you all enjoyed the trip to see 'Wendy and Peter Pan'. It was a great way to start our new topic and we can use lots of ideas from the performance to help with our own class film. Your excellent behaviour at the theatre was once again recognised by the staff from the RSC who said they would love to have us back again! Well done to you all.

See you on Monday.

Theatre Trip

Just a reminder that all children need to bring a packed lunch with them tomorrow (preferably in a plastic bag) with a couple of drinks.

 

Thank you.

Happy New Year

Hello Blue Class,
 
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. 2014 is now here and we have lots of exciting things to look forward to this year. When we return to school we have a new topic 'Blackwell Film Festival' which involves a trip to the theatre to see 'Wendy and Peter Pan.' I've read some of the reviews and I think it's going to be a great show. '...full of surprise...', '...spectacular effects...' and '... the results are magical...' are just a few comments from people who have been to see it.  Before you come back to school have a go at an activity on the School Wall linked to the trip to help get yourself warmed up and ready for exciting learning ahead!
 
See you on Tuesday.
