Year 6 Ancient Maya Fabulous Finish

posted 19 Dec 2019, 06:04 by Website Admin

At the end of last week Year 6 enjoyed two Fabulous Finishes for their Q2 history topic - Ancient Maya. On Thursday they had a visit from Maya archaeologist Vanessa. Throughout the day they were engaged in activities such as: trying on Maya clothes, learning to dig like an archaeologist, learning about the Maya Gods and tasting traditional Maya food. They all had an amazing time and the activities really helped to consolidate their knowledge of the ancient Maya civilisation.

On Wednesday 18th December the robotics club visited St Helena Secondary School where the VEX IQ competition was taking place.  Our team of 6 went along to check out how the competition is set up and what wonderful robots we saw there!  We picked up some amazing tips and thought of how we can make our robot even better than it is, whilst working with some of the other VEX IQ teams from around the country.  An excellent morning was had and our team were impeccably behaved.

Thank You!

I would like to say a big thank you to all of the PTA who volunteered and the children, parents and families who helped to make our Christmas Bazaar such a success. We raised a terrific amount of money and so the school can now afford to buy a new writing shed for the EYFS outdoor classroom to replace the one that had rotted and fallen to pieces earlier this year. We also now have two new welly sheds for the EYFS and Year 1 children to replace the racks which are not so easy to use. Without your support, we would not be able to afford to buy amazing resources like this that really benefit the children’s learning. In the New Year, and once the access ramp to the school is sorted, the PTA will be able to fund our new greenhouse and other exciting projects that we have in the pipeline too!

Magical Maths Week

posted 22 Nov 2019, 09:30 by Website Admin

The children have all been enjoying Magical Maths this week as part of our annual Maths Week. We started off with a visit from Maths Magician Tony on Monday. He wowed the children with some fantastic magic tricks and taught the children how to do some of their own. These were all linked to the maths learning that the children had been doing in their classrooms. Hopefully some of the older children were able to show you some magic maths tricks at home. Later in the week the children all paired up with another class to share their maths learning.

Yr 6 London Visit

posted 16 Nov 2019, 04:36 by Website Admin

On Wednesday, Year 6 had a very long day as they ventured out on their 12 hour visit to the capital city. After a bus tour through central London, their first stop was at the Houses of Parliament. The children were able to look around both the House of Commons and the House of Lords as well as the Queen's Robing Room and Westminster Hall. They learned all about UK democracy and how the country is run.

 

The next stop was across Westminster Bridge (with a quick stop on the bridge to look at the London skyline) and into London Sea Life Aquarium. The children were fascinated with the large array of marine and fresh-water sea life and their personal tour guide was able to answer all of their questions. This was the perfect fabulous finish to the children's topic, Awesome Oceans.

The PTA really need your help! We are holding a non-uniform day at the school on Friday 29th November. To take part, all your child has to do is bring in an item for our Christmas Bazaar. We would like children in Years 5 & 6 to bring a bottle of something to drink (any alcohol or glass bottles to be handed to the office), Years 3 & 4 to bring in packets of sweets and EYFS , Year 1 and Year 2 some chocolates (preferably with no nuts please). 

 

We would also be very grateful of any donations of books for the book stall and prizes for the raffle. In addition, we would be very grateful for any donation of homemade or bought cakes to be brought in on the day of the Bazaar.
