In the final week of term, Marrón class read Twas the Night Before Christmas as part of our Reading lessons. We decided to record the class reading it aloud. Merry Christmas everyone!
During the first half of the spring term, we will be using two picture books as the focus for our English and Theme work. The main text – Shaun Tan’s The Arrival – is a book entirely without words, which follows the story of a family making the move to a new and unfamiliar country.
What a great evening at the Sportshall Athletics! Some great hopping, skipping, jumping, running and throwing! A fantastic team performance from the Year 5/6 team, leading to a 1st place finish and qualification for the District Final! Congratulations to all pupils involved and also a big thank you to parents and carers for supporting both vocally and through transport!
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!
