Y5/6 Family Learning!

Wow! Year 5/6 had such a lovely Family Learning event this afternoon! They were each able to choose an activity to participate in and each activity linked to our current expedition about looking after our minds and bodies.

The activities on offer were Zumba, football rounders, tag rugby, bench ball, outdoor cooking and making healthy meals!

It looked like all the children and adults were having lots of fun and it was great to see the adult participation. Thank you to all that attended and we hope you enjoyed it!

Y5/6 – Ready Steady Cook!

This afternoon in Y5/6 Family Learning the children took part in different activities linked to our expedition. I enjoyed hosting a Ready Steady Cook challenge and we had a fantastic time creating healthy and creative dishes. Well done everyone – I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

National Numeracy Day – 18th May

We are looking forward to celebrating National Numeracy Day on Wednesday 18th May!

Maths is all around us and in the run up to National Numeracy Day, I would love for you to take some photos of you that link to maths! Maybe it will be a picture of you using money to pay for something in the shop, maybe it will be of how many steps you have walked in a day, or maybe it will be of you practising your maths skills!

How creative can you be finding maths around your home and in the community? Please send all of your photographs to [email protected] so that I can make a video to celebrate maths!

Also, check out the official website (link below) because there are lots of fun activities that you can do with your children!

Y5 and Y6 Out of this World Winners

A massive shout out for Friday’s winners for Out of this World. In year 5 we had Faith, Danny, Courtney and Lola, who have all shown excellent learning attitudes over the last couple of weeks. In year 6 we had Levi, Reion and all of Crew Knowles for their excellent attitudes as they have prepared themselves, ready to tackle their SATs this week.

Ready, Steady, Cook!

During hook week, the children have immersed themselves in learning from the case studies they are about to embark on (History, Biology and D&T). We’ve had great fun learning about the plague, human anatomy and food. On Thursday, children in year 5 were tasked with creating a meal from the ingredients they were given…ready, steady cook style! The children demonstrated high levels of enthusiasm, creating meals that were nutritious, tasty and appealing to the eye. It’s safe to say the children are looking forward to the design and technology case study!

Times Tables Rock Stars day!!! (International dance day) – Friday 29th April

On Friday the 29th April, we will be having a rock star dress up day in years 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 & 1. Times Tables Rock Stars is an excellent site which helps children practice and improve their times tables. All children in these year groups have a login. To promote it’s use across school, we are encouraging children to dress up as rock stars on the above date. Not only will children have the opportunity to use this site on this day, we will be linking it to International Dance day which falls on the same date. Therefore, in the afternoon, children will also be dancing and crews will be making ‘rock-style’ music videos. Pictures and videos of the day will be blogged by each crew.
