Our Musical Superstar 🌟

Class 5 have been absolutely blown away this morning!

We always knew our Beatrice was talented but we had no idea just what a superstar she was! We went rogue with our musician of the week today and enjoyed listening to Bea perform a song from Matilda the Musical!

I am definitely getting her autograph! 🌟

Nursery shall remember them.

Nursery have been thinking about Remembrance Day this past week to honour our British Values. The children have learnt about what a poppy is and why we wear poppies; to remember and honour the fallen, the veterans and the serving soldiers and armed forces around the world. Here’s our contribution… Just look at our beautiful work!

We are scientists!

We have been investigating materials to find out which one would be best to build a castle. In crew we worked together to build castles out of paper, fabric, plastic and wood. We then tested them against wind and water.

We wrote letters to the knights to let them know the results of our investigations so that they could build the most secure castles to keep them safe from the big, bad dragon!

A book look with a difference . . .

Miss Tunney and I have had the most lovely day! We wanted to see and hear about all the amazing learning going on across our campus, so rather than sit in our office flicking through work, we invited the owners of the exercise books to share their work instead.

We have had children in our early years reciting We’re Going on a Bear Hunt with actions, students in key stage one sharing some fantastic knowledge about castles and how their expert visitor helped them towards answering their guiding question, lower key stage two being so enthusiastic about their core text, The Lion and the Unicorn and finally year five and six explaining how clear and specific critique has helped them to improve their work into versions they are incredibly proud of.

To all of those children who shared their learning with us, thank you. It was a real privilege to hear about your learning so far this year. You all spoke confidently and showed real enthusiasm for your expeditions and the beautiful work you are producing.

Final Word 2022

I just wanted to say a massive congratulations to all of the children who have completed their Final Words this week. You presented with confidence and clarity, and spoke with honesty from the heart.

Thank you to all of the families who came and supported the children with their presentations. It was a massive privilege to be apart of them, I know the other staff who sat in on the presentations are just as proud of the children as I am.

I apologise as I was so engrossed listening that I forgot to take many pictures – here are the few that I did take!

Congratulations again year two – you’re all absolute superstars. ⭐️

(Grown Ups – if you could spare a couple of minutes to give us some feedback – it would be greatly appreciated. https://forms.gle/McWt1aZHJPx8mLD2A )

Diversity Day

Today, we have spent the day in mixed crews learning all about diversity. It has been lovely to spend the day with different children from year one and two and see them all learning together. Keep checking our blogs for photos from the other activities the children took part in

For this task we used the book My World, Your World by Melanie Walsh to create our own version all about our community. We learnt about what makes us unique and what things connect us. It was a really fun key stage one project. We hope you enjoy! 🌎👏🏻
