Year 1’s royal term.

Friday, 11 March 2016

This term we have been learning about the Queen. After receiving a fantastic letter from the Queen, we wrote some of our own letters back and asked some questions and we hope to get a reply soon. We have been very creative this term and designed our own knickers for the Queen, attempted to create portraits and worked really hard on devising a soldier dance. We are currently creating some cute, corgi, carriers for the Queen’s lovely dogs. We look forward greatly to sharing some of our knowledge about the royal family with our own families at home.

This week in 5E

Friday, 27 November 2015

This week 5E have been celebrating Thanksgiving as part of our RMSC topic!

In small group we chose recipes that were typical of thanksgiving food and cooked them on Thursday and Friday. We then had a thanksgiving party on Friday afternoon and ate A LOT of food. I think you can tell from the pictures just how yummy the food was!

We’ve also been working really hard on our writing this week and created some beautiful descriptions about some Star Wars planets and what they looked like. We paid particular attention to the landscapes and imagined what things like canyons would look like and how it might have felt to have been there.

Furthermore, class 5 are really looking forward to the KS2 Christmas play. We have been singing the songs on repeat and all the parts have been distributed. The big day will come soon enough so it’s really important that we get learning!

Reception – week 11

Friday, 27 November 2015

This week in Reception we have been reading the story of Stickman. We read through the story and spoke about the different locations he went to, we then created our own story map to sequence the story. We wrote about our family ‘We are the Reception family, we are bound together you and me, we are all part of the family tree’  and then drew a picture of our family members.

In Maths we have been learning about addition and adding two single digit numbers together. The children were able to use objects to support them when finding the total for their number sentences.

This week we have also started practising for our Christmas Nativity ‘A Wriggley Nativity’, we are having lots of fun in rehersals and are enjoying learning all the songs.

Year 3/4 survived the bushcraft!

Friday, 6 June 2014

Last weekend year 3/4 took part in a 2-day bushcraft camp. We learnt how to light fires, find water, cook our own food and how to put up tents to name but a few activities. We even camped over night at school! We had a lot of fun and the weather was very good to us. Even when it rained on Saturday we didn’t mind, it added to the fun.  Thank you to all the teachers who helped us especially Mr Russell who came and turned off the school alarm which Mrs Darlington set off by mistake! The trip was a fantastic experience we want to do it again!
