New Activities 

Filed under: Uncategorized on Wednesday, May 11th, 2016 by | No Comments

Recently, our school has been starting some ideas and we will tell you all about them…

Firstly, we have started Walk The World where every student in our school walks a mile per day. Every lap around the school is half a mile so we are planning to, everyday, walk two laps or more! At the end of the week, in assembly, we will get to see how far we have walked around the world.

We have also started a Mathletics Club where children who need assistance in maths will go to a meet-up area and practice Mathletics! During a lunchtime we can get support on maths! What a great and fun idea! Not only all of this but every question you answer in this club will go towards Mathlete of The Week, when in each class we announce the child who got the most percent of questions correct for that week.

Our school is coming up with amazing plans for us and in the future everyone hopes we will make more! Thank You everyone who takes part in these activities!

As many already know this week is SATs week. All of the year 6 children have been working hard to Complete the tests 
Well done to all children who did these hard frustrating tests.

On Monday was a Reading Paper. This test was really difficult but everyone tried their very best! There were three texts that we had to read and then answer questions about them.

The next day, Tuesday, there was a Spelling and Grammar Paper. We had to answer questions to test our knowledge on Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. It was quite a challenge!

Then on Wednesday was an Arithmetic Test. We had to answer a range of calculations. We also had a Reasoning Paper; we had to answer complex, worded questions in 40 minutes.

Finally, tomorrow will be our final paper – another Reasoning Paper. It will be very similar to the last one with we suspect some topics not yet included.

Well done to all the year 6 children!

Celebration week ! 

Filed under: Uncategorized on Tuesday, October 13th, 2015 by | No Comments

Last week we had a very special event happen. It was the school’s 60th anniversary. To celebrate we had a whole week of learning about the different decades that the school has been open for. One of our bloggers, Macie, went to ks1 and asked questions and took photos.   Kangaroo class and their teacher had really enjoyed the week and thought it was a great experience and all the activities were fun. Their decade was 2010-15. Mrs Gosling’s class decade was 2000-10. Mrs Gosling explained that she felt that the celebration week had really been very exciting and the children had really learnt a lot and had so much fun. Mrs Blaber’s class had 1990s, which was really exciting.  The class’ favourite part was the dancing, which was different to the other class whose favourite part was the pizza making. What was your favourite part ?

 

Another one of our bloggers researched ks2 (Cherion). She asked many teachers different questions about the celebration week we had at our school: Miss Hill one of our year 3 teachers replied with a positive attitude, ‘I think it has been fun and great change to be off timtable. Children have been really excited and I really enjoyed the dressing up part.’ She also visited Miss Brewster, who shared Miss Hill’s enthusiasm by saying, ‘It’s been great fun…everyone studying different decades. The dance was my favourite part. Fun. Crazy. 2G was the best and I really enjoyed the fact that the whole school got to come together.’ Mr Dewet was another person that Cherion spoke to and as a music teacher he obviously enjoyed the singing and he was also excited that the different decades performed their dance on Friday. Everyone enjoyed the week, did you ?

We all had a lot of fun!
