School Council

Posted on Friday 06 November 2020 by Mrs Hogarth

The School Council met today to make a few plans for this term. Our first bit of exciting news is that the School Council have been re-branded as ‘The Junior Leadership Team.’

We discussed some ideas for Children in Need, which is taking place on Friday 13 November. The team decided that we would do a non-uniform day and collect donations. More information will be sent out on Monday.

The team are currently discussing what our new charity is going to be this year, so we’ll keep you posted when we’ve decided.

1,2V Celebration certificates

It was great to see (nearly) everyone back this week. Lockdown will not get us down!

As we can’t have our usual celebration assembly on a Friday at the moment, we will be posting the certificate winners on here each week for each class.

For great learning…

Yusuf : for great learning in maths this week – working hard on your number formation.

For sport and physical activity…

Kai : for determination in PE – trying to beat your own personal best with the bat and ball.

For living and learning…

Mollie – for always being so kind and caring.

GOLD STAR 

Dylan – for a great start to Year 1. You are a brilliant role model.

History topic – The Great Fire of London

Posted on Wednesday 04 November 2020 by Mrs Latham

We have started a new history topic. Lots of our learning will be linked to The Great Fire of London. We are reading this book to support our learning:

You could search for a video of it on You Tube or there is a slideshow of the story here that you can read with your child at home.

We will be learning about where and how the fire started, why it ended up being so ‘great’ and what happened afterwards. We will also be learning about fire safety.

Help at home by asking your child about what they have learnt about The Great Fire of London so far.

 

Living and Learning – mental health

Posted on Tuesday 27 October 2020 by Mrs Latham

We have been looking at mental health over the last few weeks. Using mindfulness techniques (we like some of the Go Noodle ones) and talking about our feelings, moods and emotions is important. The SMILERS 7 steps to wellbeing is also a simple self-help guide.

Phonics – sound mats

Posted on Thursday 22 October 2020 by Mrs Latham

At our recent parent-teacher consultations, a few parents asked about the sound mats we use in school. Children have been talking about ‘orange’ and ‘green’ sounds at home – which is great!

Here are the sound mats and below is a link demonstrating how each phoneme (sound) is pronounced.

Listen to the orange sounds here.

Listen to the green sounds here.

Super Science – Living things and their habitats

Posted on Thursday 22 October 2020 by Mr Gathercole

We’ve seen so many amazing responses to this week’s homework task.

You were asked to show us what you’ve learnt in our science unit, living things and their habitats.  As this was a creative homework, you could have done this in lots of different ways.

Here are just some of the amazing examples:
