For two whole days, Yrs. 3, 4, 5 and 6 were immersed in a variety of tasks linked to their Ice Worlds topic. In the afternoons, they were joined by Year 2. In a truly cross-curricular learning environment, they braved the elements to experience a little of what it was like to be an Antarctic explorer. A wonderful two days was had by all, including the many volunteers who kindly gave up their time.
We've been itching to share our cycling video for some time now - and our new website allows us to do that.
Parents are invited to the service and will be very welcome on the whole school walk down to the church with the children, leaving at 10am. The harvest donations will go to the Chestnut Tree Hospice. Children are asked to bring one of the following to the church: Cake making kits or ingredients for cake making eg. flour, sugar, icing sugar, packets of teabags, small jar of coffee or small bottles of squash, packets of biscuits.
The children have been starting work in their new exercise books this term and we have talked about that lovely ‘first page’ feeling. We are working on the five Ps as a way of improving as a learner:
We take Pride in the Presentation of our work
We show Perseverance in learning and show stamina
We are Precise and Picky – we check our work and make our best efforts.
We are all looking forward to sharing the outcomes and books with you at the parent consultation meetings in October.
Today we were delighted to welcome Brian Moses to our school for a day of performance poetry and poetry workshops. He performed to the whole school and parents and this is what people said:
‘That was such fun’
‘I liked the Snake Hotel because it was funny and kept making me JUMP!’
‘What a great thing for the children to see and experience – I loved that!’
‘Very funny but where’s the cake gone from the staff room?’
Fascinating facts – did you know that Brian has written a poem and a book about the Titanic called Titanic, Lost and Saved? We will definitely be reading those.
