March 2019 – Fair Trade: dance (From Cacao Pod To Sack)

March 2019 – Science

We made drama action sequences showing different parts of the digestive system and the audience had to try to work out which part – eg mouth – stomach, or small intestine – large intestine…

 

See below some photos from World Book Day 2019 – didn’t everyone look marvellous?

                   

                   

         

 

SAXON DAY! March 2018

 

15.1.19

Happy new year to you all, and welcome back to the Spring Term! Thanks to everyone for your very generous gifts and lovely messages at Christmas – we hope you had a rejuvenating break!

We are already getting ‘stuck in’ to our new topic, and below you can see some pictures of some RE Epiphany learning (with spiritual tealights…) and a Science experimental session around magnets.

 

 

 

 

20.11.18

Our RE learning is about the Trinity – this is a difficult concept (literally ‘three in one’) and we have explored it from different directions and through different texts / activities / songs / videos / images etc. I challenged the children to work in threes to create a human symbol for the Trinity…

 

19.11.18

We do concentrate quietly a lot of the time… Here we are editing a long piece of writing and responding to teacher marking.

… but we value our active learning with an element of choice – Electricity in this case:

 

16.11.18 Homework! What can I say?

14.10.18    For the last couple of weeks we have been working on Measures in Maths – this involved some practical work first, closely followed by baking (using weighing and measuring) with kind Mrs Knight. As a result we are getting pretty proficient at reading scale and recognising where the correct unit of measurement is being used. And it was fun!!

 

9.11.18 More fabulous homework! What a week it’s been! Do ask your child to talk to you about our new Recognition Board – we have all (adults included) been trying hard to develop and maintain positive learning behaviours!

 

31.10.18          Welcome back after the half term break! This week we were visited by Chris Lloyd, chair of Education Uganda, who carried out a day of workshops about our twinned school, Katiri Primary, in Uganda. You may remember that we have done some fund raising over the last few years for them to purchase library books and slates. We all had a fabulous day, learning lots about ways in which we are the same, but different. One of the most important things the children picked up was that Ugandan culture is not as wasteful and environmentally unsound as ours, but rather people make the most of what they have. On Friday, Mrs Stepney kindly came in to present a slideshow about neo-natal care in Africa, and the children were able to pick up many similarities of theme.

 

12.10.18    A few weeks of really good homework – we have loved sharing in all the different activities, which have included Powerpoints, models, pictures, algebra, stories and edible delicacies! Thank you to all concerned. Our next topic will be called Location, Location, Location –  a Geography-led study of the cities in the UK –  and new topic / homework sheets will come home to you after the half term holiday, as well as being available on this website.

8.10.18                  A big THANK YOU to all staff and volunteers who accompanied the class on their very successful trip to Harold Hillier Gardens – the children learnt masses and were, as always, a credit to you and to the school. We would also like to thank all parents for funding the trip! You can see the results of their day in the classroom and below:

 

1.10.18  We are delighted to welcome Mrs Rebecca Slater to Class 3 as our new LSA (to replace the irreplaceable Mrs Fisher) for 4 mornings per week – do pop in and meet her on Monday / Tuesday / Thursday / Friday.

24.9.18       Mrs Snowden worked with us to plant bulbs for spring around the school, as well as tidy the pots ready for autumn.

20.9.18     We really enjoyed re-creating Stonehenge out of plasticine! Some of us also made different versions out of a variety of materials for homework.

 

Welcome back to the Autumn Term 2018, and an especially warm welcome to our new families – it’s lovely to have you with us.

17.9.18 The children have made a really good start settling into school, and we are already well into our topic, with some super homework! Thank you so much for joining in so enthusiastically

We have launched into our Science learning about Rocks too, and have enjoyed a range of practical learning activities already

Investigating the properties of rocks

We are also finding our History learning (Stone Age / Iron Age) really fascinating!

Cave Art

 

Our book study text, The Iron Man, has already involved some very entertaining drama together with expressive reading aloud.
