Year 3 enjoyed a fun PE lesson this week that looked at travelling. We talked about the importance of aesthetics in gymnastics and learned a number of different rolls. We then had fun creating our own sequence and presenting it to the class.
Across the school yesterday we had a fantastic day exploring all things Maths! We were given lots of opportunities to use our fantastic problem solving and reasoning skills. In Year 3 we completed a carousel of activities. We looked at Thinking Tom questions and mastery questions that we worked in Kagan pairs to solve. We completed a Tarsia puzzle...
This term Year 3 will be looking at Rocks and Soils. To kick start our topic we did an experiment to identify the properties of some rocks. We worked in groups to test how hard the rocks were and how permeable. We recorded our results in a table.
To kick off our exciting topic this term Year 3 visited Touchstones. We learned a lot about the stone age and even created our own timeline. We explored the fascinating museum and then split into groups for a carousel of activities. We were able to make our own stone age pots from clay, take part in an archaeological dig,...
We are having so much fun in Year 1! This morning we have been working hard to solve different maths problems and we are excited to be making our very own maths games this afternoon! Take a look at our pictures . . .
Fantastic first afternoon back with Year 3. Lots of learning this afternoon. Today they used a child friendly search engine to find information about the Stone Age. We watched a video about life as a child in the Stone Age era. They then paired up to search the web for Stone Age facts and pictures. We learnt about Stone...
A Mystery Egg was left in the Reception classroom this morning. The children were asked to look after it until the mummy returned. Each child wrote a notice to tell people of how to behave near the egg to keep it safe. We are all excited to see what will hatch from the egg.
The children in reception class have been experimenting mixing colours. Unfortunately, once they had mixed the colours they began exploring how it would look on themselves and each other. Apologies to parents for the paint on clothes.
Screams of delight and laughter emerged from the hall this morning. Yes, you guessed it M&M were in with an amazing performance of Beauty and the Beast. Very happy children @MandMTheatrical thank you and Merry Christmas. 🎄
Yesterday we had a visit from the Fire service. We were very lucky that they brought their fire engine into the school grounds so we could look around it. The children also had the opportunity to feel like a fire fighter and use the hose.
Once back in Reception class the children dressed up as fire fighters, rescuing people and putting out fires.
Last session with the Groundwork team today. 🙁 What a fantastic morning the children had. They learned how to make a campfire, baked bread, eat the bread with garlic butter, drank hot chocolate and melted chocolate so that they could indulge in marshmallows and creamy chocolate. The children have thoroughly enjoyed their time with the Groundwork team and have...
This term Year 3 have been studying healthy eating and have been discussing how to keep a balanced diet. We were lucky enough to have a visit from Warburtons who were able to give us more information on this. We looked at the types of food we need to eat, and discussed portion sizes. To help us understand this...
The children in Reception class visited Middleton library today. All the children chose their own book and brought it back to school. Thank you to all our parent volunteers who came with us and made the visit possible. Reception children would also like to thank those parents who carried all the books back for them.
This week the children in Year 5 and 6 enjoyed an exciting afternoon of French with Madame Hunt! Thank you to Miss Turner for her fantastic support.
Well done to all of the children who participated in the lessons... I think they will all soon be able to holiday confidently in France!
Year 2 joined Reception Class for a visit to Middleton Library! All of the children had great fun choosing a book of their choice!
Everyone was allowed to take their book back to school to read and we will return our books together in the following weeks.
Well done Year 2 for your impeccable behaviour throughout the morning!
Year 1 had a very special treat this morning! We walked to Middleton library, looked at lots of books and then we got to take one back to school! Everybody really enjoyed it and when we got back to school we had a look at the books we chose. Well done Year 1 for being so sensible! What a...
The children in Reception class all took part in a sponsored walk today to raise money for Children in Need. Thank you to the family and friends of the reception children who sponsored them. Once we have collected all the money we will be able to publish how much we raised.
We've done it!
