Number Day

For our Number day this year, people wore T-shirts with numbers on them or things that could be counted. The whole day was about numbers and maths. It was basically all about number bonds. Year 5 did activities including number bonds such as making paper chains, playing barrier games and working on worksheets up to 10, 20, 100, 1000 and even more. We had passports to show what we have done already. Every time there was a smiley face on the activity meant that we had completed it. There was a raffle as well. We got prizes for free but needed to complete stuff so that we could get them.  By Rizwan

On Wednesday we learnt about number bonds. We did number bonds up to 1000. We also made a paper chain up to number 20, filled out a worksheet about number bonds and played a fun game called bingo that was about number bonding.  By Hepzibah

On number day our teacher said wear a T-shirt with a number on it or a T-shirt with stars or colours that can be counted. We did number games in our p.e. lesson. Then the whole class made booklets about numbers to give to all the reception children. After going to lunch, we played lots of number games and made straw number sculptures with Mrs. Wakeling. It was a fun day.  By Max and Arthur

Vue Cinema Trip

On the 11th November the whole school walked to the cinema; we were soooo lucky because we got free tickets to watch Peter Rabbit 2 and it was funny and interesting. The film was 1 hour and 33 minutes long. It was only about 10 minutes walk to the cinema.

My favourite bit was when Peter rescued his sisters and cousin (Michael).

My favourite part was when Cottontail ate all the jellybeans and had a sugar rush (Marwa).

Orchestra Unwrapped

On Wednesday 10th November Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 went to the Corn Exchange. We were there to listen to the Philharmonia Orchestra and we listened to some of their music. There were two songs I really, really liked called Beethoven 6th symphony and Moana how far I’ll go. It took us about 10 minutes to walk there. We were at the Corn Exchange concert for 1 hour. We learnt a really nice song. It was the most fun I had that day.   By Sofia

Biomes

On Friday Year 6 were doing a project all about biomes. A biome is a landscape like desert, grasslands, arctic and more. The class got into their groups and made their biome with coloured paper, seashells, rocks, toy animals and clay.   By Eli

Computer Programming

Year 5 and 6 have been really lucky this term.  We have been working with some professional computer programmers to learn more about it and make our own arcade games.  It’s been great fun and we only have 2 sessions left, so now we are sad.  Some of us will get to share our games in assembly though, which we are looking forward to.

Harvest Celebrations

This morning all of the classes celebrated harvest time together, via Zoom, not in the hall.  Every class had the chance to choose what they wanted to perform or do so we had a great selection of poetry, singing, acting and pictures.  So many donations came in that we needed 18 bags to carry it all to the car to take to the Salvation Army! Year 6 wrote and performed their own play about Wonky Veg and why you should eat them, not bin them.  It was a fun end to the term but it also had a serious message about helping others who may not have enough food at this time of year.

1st October 2021

The school photographer was supposed to come today but it got cancelled because he has Covid.  That made us sad and also reminded us that Covid is still disrupting life, even though at school most of us are able to live reasonably normal lives.  Year 4 are currently in a bubble though, so we are not able to play with our friends from there during school time.  We are still washing our hands regularly and opening windows all the time.  We also have new alarms in the classrooms which tell us when the air is not circulating enough.  That’s a lot of fun, because we have to jump up and play a mini game if the alarm goes off, so that the air moves again.

Hello Everybody!

We are now back into school and everything is almost normal, after a crazy, weird time last year.  It is good to be able to have assemblies and normal playtimes.  It is also great to be able to have normal conversations with people who are not in our class!  There are still some control measures in place but they are not disrupting our day to day life like they were before.  We look forward to giving you lots of information about all the activities the school will be able to complete this year, so make sure you log in every week to check our blog. Bye for now, from year 6.

Healthy school week

This week is healthy school week, and it’s also sports week.

Mr Walsh is organising our healthy menu. We can’t wait. As part of healthy schools’ week, we are going to be getting a sleep diary which we need to record how much sleep we get in a week.

Year 6 had fun at the park today. We played tennis and had a picnic, also we got into groups and picked up litter to clean up the park for saying thank you for letting us come to enjoy our self.

Year 6 Businesses

Welcome everyone back from the half term. Hope you are all well. We are about to start the last half term of our school year.

In year 6 we are starting a new curriculum based on businesses. As a class we could decide to work on our own or in groups. The bank has given us a loan of £5 each and at the end of 4 weeks, we have to give the money back with a profit that we make but can also keep some profit. All of us have different ideas as groups or individuals. We will be designing logos for our businesses and we will be going to town to buy the supplies.

Some of the ideas we have had: slush puppies, mojitos, sweets, crisps, cupcakes, lemonade and games.

Poetry X-Factor -2

Yesterday was sooooooo exciting.  We had the Poetry X-Factor competition.  Claudia came 1st, Sara 2nd and Mahdi 3rd.  IT was a brilliant afternoon with lots of suspense.  The judges were Mrs ‘Simon Cowell’ Fraser, Miss ‘Cheryl’ Wilde and Mrs ‘Sharon Osbourne’ T.  They did a great job and everyone had a lot of fun.  It was also really good for us to practice our public speaking skills and get more confident talking to an audience.  We loved it!  By Abbie
