The end of an action packed week. Congratulations to all of the children that competed in the Quadkids competition. They were all amazing and the Year 4 team secured bronze medal and 3rd place. A super achievement.
Today was a very colourful day, as it was the Rainbow Fun Run. The pictures below show how much the children enjoyed the run. Another fabulous day, congratulations to you all.

We are super proud of every single one of our dances that performed at The Sage. The performance was amazing and there were many very proud parents, teachers and friends who thought you were INCREDIBLE. Thanks to Miss Rochester for working so hard with the Year 4s.

A very busy week. The children in Africa Class have been working hard in all areas of the curriculum. 
Dance rehearsals are in full swing for the Dance Festival next week, the multiplication checks have started, children have been working hard in PE as we are trying to pick the team to represent the school at the Athletics Festival in July.  Alongside these activities the children have been working really hard in Mathematics to tell the time, recognise analogue and digital clocks as well as know the days in the week, months in the year etc.. 
I just want to celebrate all of the class for their incredible enthusiasm and determination to do well in everything. 
Enjoy your weekend, you deserve it.

The children of Africa class had a wonderful final week of school before the half term holidays.
On Thursday, the children worked with Adam Bushnell ( a local author and story teller). He taught the children all about the Roman army. The children were able to handle artefacts and try on Roman army and hold weapons. They were surprised by the weight of them and it really helped them understand the role of a soldier and how hard it would have been to march, fight and defend their land.
Friday was a wonderful celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee. The children enjoyed time on a bouncy castle, a picnic lunch, had ice creams, completed some well-being work and even had their photograph taken with her majesty. 
I think you can tell from the photographs how much fun the children had. We hope they all have a lovely half term.

During our Science lessons this term we have been learning about Animals Including Humans. After learning about the food chain and its contributors last week we look at the digestive system of humans this week. We had a great time being part of a demonstration of how the digestive system works. We broke up food as if it was being eaten and discussed the role of teeth in this process. Then we looked at how it moves through the body. The children were fascinated and their recall of the process for their write up was excellent! We hope you enjoy looking through the photos as much as we enjoyed demonstrating it!

We have also started preparing for our Jubilee Celebrations already with some dance sessions. We had a great time learning our dance routine from the 1970s. We wonder if you can work out the dance just from some photographs of our moves?! 

The children were fantastic performing our dance alongside the other decades outside - well done everyone!

 

Happy Weekend!

Friday 6th May

This week I have been really impressed by the determination shown by the children in Africa Class. We have really used our Growth Mindset Skill to support our work particularly in maths and we reaped the benefits in our end of unit check today – well done!

On Wednesday, we had an excellent afternoon our with a mixture of Africa and Asia children. We went to Kingsmeadow School for an Orienteering Festival. Our representatives were brilliant and we came in 4th place and 1st place!

We found it great fun racing round to find all the clues during the orienteering and the problem-solving tasks were really fun to take part in and we were the first group to complete the mine challenge. The 'walk the plank' activity made Mrs Toward laugh a lot! Great team work all round!

Have a great weekend

We’ve had a great first week of the Summer Term. We have started our new English unit about Wishing Tales. The children have come up with some fantastic wishes alongside some excellent descriptive writing ideas, it’s great to see their imaginations running wild.

In our music lesson we looked at our genre of the week – rap and the use of rhythm within rap music. The children learnt the opening to ‘Rapper’s Delight’ and I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed learning and recording it!

Happy weekend!
