‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term B

Week 6

Firstly I would like to congratulate all of the children in our class for such a great half-term and return to school after lock down. You all settled very well and have worked incredibly hard. 
This week we finished reading Harry Potter and watched the film as a treat. The children have written some excellent ghost stories linked to Hogwarts and it’s ghosts. Listen to some of them being read in our videos. 
In Art we studied Banksy  and made our stencil art in a similar style. We also baked a traditional Spanish breakfast, which was delicious! 

We wish you all a very happy Easter🐣. Enjoy the break.

Week 5

Spring has finally sprung! The flowers in our allotment are beautiful and we have been planting a range of seeds. We even got to enjoy a healthy snack in the process. Great fun was had during our Easter treasure hunt; our compass reading skills lead us to the tree house, where we received a chocolate egg. We have been playing mini-netball matches with our newly acquired skills in P.E. and in Computing we have been creating spreadsheets to convert cm to m.  What a busy week!  
Week 4

We have been developing our netball skills this week, practising footwork and passing the ball. In Art we have been looking at satirical street art, thinking about the messages portrayed and sketching designs to improve our local areas. On Friday we enjoyed a non-uniform day and telling jokes to raise money for Comic Relief. 

Week 3
What a wonderful return to school we’ve had this week. It’s been brilliant being back together in the classroom again. I have been so impressed with how well everyone has settled back in. Great fun was had outside in our Bush Craft session with the children making bird houses and insect hotels, showing off their skills with tools.

Week 1

Welcome back everyone to another strange start to the half term. We have loved seeing your work on Seesaw this week but can’t wait til we are back together in the classroom on the 8th of March. Our pupils seem to be enjoying the Harry Potter story so far and have produced some excellent writing linked to the story. If anyone still needs a copy of the book, please get in touch and we can try to arrange that for you.

As well as reading the opening chapters to Harry Potter and getting their heads around some complex maths calculations, our pupils have produced some excellent art work, linked to our Life Skills challenge award and the PSHE curriculum.
