Latest updates from our School
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the focus this year is 'Nature'. Being close to nature is so beneficial for our mental health and really helps to prevent mental distress and promotes good well-being for all. For more information, please watch this video by mentalhealth.org:
To encourage our children, and their families, to get out into nature (and to help them experience the benefits to their mental health), we would love them to take photographs of themselves doing what they love outdoors.
I love walking among the bluebells in the nearby woods, for example, and playing with my cats in the garden, not to mention spending time with my son and family outdoors. What do you like doing in nature, children?
Whether you love playing sport, walking your dog, spending time on the beach (or even just in the sandpit during these odd times!) or relaxing in the garden, we would love you to send in your photos for a whole school display to promote the benefits of nature on our mental health. Please email your photos to your class' home learning email address as we would love to see, and share, your photographs.
Get outside, enjoy nature, use your senses, exercise in nature, combine nature with creativity and protect nature. Feel the benefits. And please remember to share your photos and experiences with us! Thank you :)
Another super busy week this week but with some absolutely wonderful work from the children! Well done Class 3!
I have been so impressed this week with your work ethic, trying incredibly hard, taking your time and showing how independent you can be. This has been wonderful to see so thank you Class 3, please keep it up!
The children have been focusing on fractions in maths, becoming familiar with a half, a quarter and even further understanding 3/4! The children have been converting these fractions into decimals and percentages and have shown a fantastic understanding and knowledge of their times tables which has helped them to use the numerator and denominator. We particularly enjoyed using tables this week to show our working out (all wipeable and rules in place!) but it has been a great way for the children to show their understanding of fractions and encouraged their working out and checking of answers.
Class 3 are still really enjoying our play ‘Bombs and Blackberries’ and have had the opportunity this week to produce a piece of writing they want to do. Many chose to create their own play, stories and use characters from our book. They have shown excellent use of speech and key writing features that we have covered since September but most importantly they have thoroughly enjoyed writing, many begging to continue them which is just fantastic!
The children have had fun painting and designing their very own WWII Spitfires this week. Their attention to detail has impressed me and I have seen some excellent DT skills.
As well as DT, the children have learnt all about Rationing this week and created their own ration book. Many of the children preferred the modern day food choices than WWII and feel lucky that they have many luxuries today in comparison!
Our stars this week...Myla and Isobel!
I am so very proud of these two girls this week for their determination, attitude and pride.
Myla always works exceptionally hard but this week has gone even further and is working her socks off! Her maths work in particular has been thorough, neat and accurate and she has been super proud of what she has achieved. Keep it up!
Isobel has been showing us all in Class 3 how to work independently and has created a wonderful piece of writing in which she has chosen the genre and shown how she can include key writing features on her own. Well done!
Amazing work from both of you girls!
Well done to James. He is a star that shines brightly day in day out, week in and week out! James is an always child. He always does his absolute best in everything he undertakes. He is always polite and courteous and a true role model for the class. He is also incredibly hard working. We all admire him and thoroughly enjoy him being in our Class 1 family.
Mrs Swann and Mrs Rodgers.
Our Star this week is Emily.
She has received her pen license and it's well deserved too.
Carrie, our music teacher, commented on how she is always ready for her Class ukulele lesson.
Thank you Emily for always doing the right thing and for all the effort you put into your work. You're a superstar⭐️
