Y5/6 Family Learning Reminder

On Tuesday 24th May at 1:45pm it is our Y5 and Y6 Family Learning event. The children will be asked to select from a range of activities that link to our expedition ‘How can a healthy lifestyle impact our mind and body?’. Many of these activities will be taking place outdoors and we suggest you come suitably dressed for if your child selects to do a sporting activity.

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.

Red Nose Day 🔴

Well done to the winners of the ‘Design a Red Nose’ competition! There were some fantastic entries but the school council voted and decided that these would be the winning entries. Well done to all who submitted an entry.

We are also pleased to announce that the school managed to sell £300 worth of red noses in the run up to the event before raising a further £301.58 through donations when wearing something red. Thank you to every one for your generous donations!

Y5/6 Celebration of Learning

A huge well done to Y5/6 who shared their expedition learning this afternoon in the sunshine! They presented their gorgeous art work in their photo frames which were handmade by themselves!

I was also so proud of their passionate speeches about endangered animals and it was lovely to see how proud all of the children were when they saw their product hung up around the school grounds!

Y5/6 Celebration of learning

Well done to all of Y5/6 today who celebrated their learning from our current expedition ‘How can we help our world survive?’ The children spoke with great enthusiasm and could recall prior learning throughout our 3 case studies. In addition to this, their art work was amazing and we would all like to give a shout out to Mrs Green for her awesome art lessons in G Block! Well done Y5/6 everyone is very proud of you 🙂
