British Sport

Hello Blue Class,

What a lovely week we've had learning all about 'British Sport'! I'm looking forward to more learning next week leading up to our Sports Day on Friday where we will be running, skipping and having fun with lots of team games. Year 3s, for your homework this weekend, why not research a little about your favourite British sporting star? You can present what you have found out in your own way i.e. poster, leaflet, PowerPoint, art... and bring it in to show us all on Monday. Year 4s your homework is on the sheet given to you this afternoon.

Have a lovely weekend and I'lll see you next week for some more exciting learning about British Sport.

What a lovely afternoon!

Well done children for planning and running the arts festival this afternoon. Your performances of 'The Nokken' and 'Peter and the Wolf' were extremely entertaining, your singing was fantastic and the solo and duet performers showed off their talents brilliantly.  Your parents had a lovely time and should be very proud of you.

 

Have a good weekend and plenty of rest as next week we start our British Sports topic and will be preparing for our Sports Day.

Happy Easter

Well done children for another enjoyable half term. You've all worked very hard and achieved lots of things you should be very proud of...

* planning and running your own prehistoric museum

* showing great curiosity at Singer's Hill syngagogue

* perservering when learning to tell the time in maths

* writing detailed reports all about the Bronze or Iron Age

* super collage work showing what life was like in a hill fort

... I could go on!

 

So.. have a well deserved rest over the holiday and have a very Happy Easter!

What a great morning!

Well done children for planning and running a great museum this morning. You all carried out your jobs very responsibly and I saw you grow in confidence as the morning went on. We had some very colourful shields created, lots of new things learned by the grown ups who read your reports and the dinosaur biscuits went down a treat!

 

So... what next?

 

Next week, we will enjoy learning more about the festival of Easter which will involve a visit to St. Catherine's Church, reading poems and even more art.

 

Once again, well done for this morning. I am very proud to see how you are all developing many important life skills and you should be too!

Through the Ages

Hello Children,

 

I hope you are enjoying your holidays and having a well deserved rest.

What a super last week in school we had. I was very impressed with your baking skills and the range of fancy fruit breads you created was incredible! Maybe we have the next Mary Berry in Blue Class! You performed well at our Jewish festival and Mrs Moss was delighted to see how much you had learned about Judaism.

Our next topic is a fascinating one... Through the Ages! We will have a quick recap of Stone Age Britain and then investigate what happened afterwards during the Bronze Age and Iron Age. Our project is to set up and run a museum where your parents and other visitors can come and learn about these prehistoric times too. During the holidays, have a think about what you would like to have in the museum and what role you might like to have.

On Monday our prehistoric learning will begin. If you want to get a head start why not research about the Bronze Age or Iron Age. You can bring it into school on Monday and share your learning with the rest of the class. You can present it however you want i.e. a piece of art, a report, a PowerPoint...

Enjoy the rest of the holidays and I'll look forward to seeing you on Monday.

Blue Class Homework

Hello Children,

 

What a lot we've learned about Judaism this week! I'm looking forward to our trip to the synagogue on Monday where we will see some of the things we have learned about and learn even more. Remember boys, out of respect, you need to wear a hat or cap so you need to bring one to school on Monday.

 

Your homework during this topic is the following:

 

1. Practise your times tables.

Year 4 learn your 6 times table by heart and Year 3 your 4 times table. You must keep practising them until you know them by heart in any order and also the corresponding division facts. Ask your grown ups to help you. You may be able to think of fun ways and games that will help you to memorise those tricky ones!

 

2. Complete an activity on the School Wall linked to Judaism.

 

3. Get lost in a really good book.

 

Have a good weekend.

End of the topic and a new one begins!

Dear Children,

 

We have now come to the end of our 'Tell Me A Story' topic. You have all worked very hard and your recorded retells of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe are fantastic. I'm sure you're grown ups will be very impressed when they hear them! Your Narnia art masterpiece is currently under construction and I'm sure we're in with a good chance of winning the competition. Although I have had a sneeky peek at the other classes' work and we face tough competition! Fingers crossed though.

 

Tomorrow, we start our new topic linked to Judaism where we will explore stories found in the Torah scroll, investigate Jewish places of worship (which will involve a trip to a synagogue) and become bakers!!!

 

See you in the morning,

Merry Christmas

Dear Parents and Children,

 

Thank you for all your kind Christmas messages and gifts. I hope you all have a good rest over the Christmas period and have lots of fun together.

 

Merry Christmas and wishing you a very happy 2016!

 

Lots of love

 

Miss Townsend xxx

 

P.S. Remember children, if you find it tricky to sleep tomorrow night, start at 500 (or 1000 if the excitement is unbearable) and count back in 1s. You'll be asleep before you get to zero! It always works for me. Ho! Ho! Ho!

Well done Yellow and Blue Classes

What fabulous performances you all gave this week! You were amazing remembering all those words, dances and playing your instruments so well. Have a lovely holiday and we look forward to seeing you again in January 2016! Mrs Moss xx ps- remember to practise your reading over the holiday.

Year 3 P.E.

In P.E. after Christmas, Year 3 children will be learning how to play tag rugby. This will take place on the school field. Your child will need jogging bottoms, a jumper and trainers in their P.E. bag along with a plastic bag to put muddy trainers into after!

 

Many thanks.

What a performance!

Well done children for a fantastic Christmas production. Your grown ups had a super time listening to your beautiful singing and watching your fabulous dancing as well as enjoying all of the other talents on show.  You have all worked extremely hard and well and truly earned your tasty Christmas lunch.

 

You're all super stars!

Super Stars!

Wow! What a great class assembly! You were all super stars and entertained your grown ups and school friends brilliantly with your singing, dancing, poetry, drumming and art work. You should be very proud of yourselves.

 

We've another busy day tomorrow when you'll be running our African festival and sharing even more learning with your grown ups. You have all worked very hard during this topic.

 

Very well done!
