Latest updates from our school
Due to parental availability we will be changing the Big Read back to Tuesday mornings from 8:40.
We hope to see you there, however if you cannot make this time and would like to attend please get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate.
Miss Richardson and Mrs Parkin.
Well done to our achievement award winners today for their effort, hard work and progress in Mathematics over the past week.
Well done also to Tom, for his effort and hard work with reading and homework, and to Ruby for her enthusiasm and ideas in class around 3-D printing, enterprise and the forthcoming Christmas Shopping Evening. For this you received the headteacher's award.
We started with the Creepy Glove Game - Edward did an excellent job and showed great maturity when sharing his experiences with the group.
We then split up, with some building dens or constructing trenches; others followed an art theme, with final groups undertaking communication challenges or making bows.
The children are really blossoming, showing excellent levels of communication, creativity and independence, whilst supporting each other to keep safe.
We started with the Sniper Game, with our 4 assistant adults being the snipers...the children and I stood no chance, with 20 of us being mowed down in the first 3 minutes of battle! In the end, we got 3 of the snipers, but Mrs Scott proved too effective, capably seeing off the final assault from her tree-top hide.
After this, some took artistic inspiration from Andy Goldsworthy and Giuseppe Penone, others honed fire making skills or made models of WW1 battlefields with a final group continuing work on their round-house.
6 captains were chosen, and each randomly selected a challenge...captains then had to think of the skills needed to fulfil their challenge, and pick team members they though had these.
Teams then discussed how they were going to tackle their challenge, breaking it down into steps and allocating roles to individuals. Equipment was selected and we then headed into the wood.
The children were collaborative, supportive and creative, showing good problem solving skills, with many selecting and using a range of tools appropriately and safely.
At the end, we had a lovely cup of hot chocolate and identified and discussed the attributes we had shown.
Your child has received their CGP book today. We will be using this throughout the year in class and to support learning at home.
This week, I would like the children to look at 'Using commas in lists' on page 40/41 for their homework. We have discussed the task as a class so the children should know what they need to do. The CGP books will need to be back in school on Monday please.
If there are any issues or if there is anything you wish to discuss, please let me know.
