As I'm sure you're aware the new National Curriculum has a much greater emphasis on grammar, punctuation and spelling (GPS or SPAG). In school we are doing lots of work to help pupils prepare for the demands of the new curriculum but we thought it would be useful to share some of the key vocubulary if you so you can support your child at home. The document below was sent to us from SATs Companion website and is designed as a really useful placemat so children can refer to it but we thought it would also be a useful guide for parents or children at home.
Tonight saw a successful start to the Girls' Football Club with all of the girls getting stuck in! The children spent time outside under the floodlights until the heavens opened, at which point they transferred indoors!
Y5/6 Residential - Day 4
Wet and windy at Kingswood today! The children have been kept very busy with a number of activities yet again, whether inside or out. From abseiling and archery to fencing and Jacob's Ladder, there have been a lot of individual and team accomplishments!
Y5/6 Residential - Day 3:
This morning, some groups were working as teams during the Nightline activity whilst others were playing Aeroball or encouraging others to get as far up the climbing wall as possible! Then, another delicious lunch awaited us!
As I write this, the children are busy in a number of activities such as Music, Orienteering, Zip Wire and Low Ropes.
The photos attached show a selection of children taking part in Nightline and Low Ropes as well as Mr Seeley on the Zip Wire!
Children in school this week in Year 5/6 have been taking part in an enterprise challenge. They have researched, planned and designed a range of games to entertain people. There is a whole range of board games coming out, and some are even ready to play.
Y5/6 Residential - Day 2:
Into the full swing of things now! Some children were so excited for the day of activities that they were up at the crack of dawn... However some needed gentle persuasion to get out of bed!
Most children have been on the 3G Swing and taken part in Laser Tag today along with other activities. See attached photos! All of the children have shown pride in their achievements on the Swing and have worked collaboratively in team activities. Other activities have included climbing, bouldering, aeroball and fencing!
Y5/6 Residential - Day 1:
What a long day! Both staff and children are ready for sleep!
