Looking after our wellbeing

We're so pleased to be here in school supporting the children, staff and community in keeping mentally (and physically) healthy and we understand that children, like adults, need to talk now more than ever. We're here for the children and we keep checking in on their wellbeing. It's good to talk and, as we approach the end of term already, let's keep the conversation going, keep supporting each other, keep sharing our thoughts, fears, worries, hopes and dreams. We love having all of the children back in school and we love seeing their resilience, hope, positivity and emotional intelligence. Be kind, be accepting, be patient and care for yourselves and each other :)

Class R’s Star of the Week

A very special well done to Ralph for being our Star of the Week. Ralph has grown in confidence and is a super star learner. He knows what he has to do to learn well; he listens so carefully, puts his hand up to answer questions, tries his very best and loves a challenge. Ralph is always ready to learn, he is so kind, gentle and lots of fun, as well as being a super duper tidier. We’re proud of you Ralph - well done!

Class 3's Star of the Week!

Our star of the week this week is...Hewie! Well done Hewie, very much deserved! 

You have shown kindness and determination this week, two things which we are looking out for across school. You are very quick to help others and ensure they are ok, a quality which has been modelled since you started in September and is so lovely to see. 

Your work has been fantastic this week, particularly your use of the column method in maths. You have really tried hard at mastering the method and ensuring it is exact which has then displayed your brilliant mathematical ability. Keep it up! :) 

Well done Hewie :)

A Rainbow of Poppies.

CEB16ABC-4D5B-4908-8043-77525DE779A3

 

Two years ago many of you will remember making poppies for our willow tree which stands in our playground. This year our Remembrance Service will be very different-it will take place in school but we will be unable to invite parents and friends into the school to join with us to remember those soldiers who came to school , who played in our playground , who went to war and never came home to Smalley. 

So to mark the occasion we thought it would be very special if every child in school made a new poppy for our tree. This year, each class will make a different colour of poppy and then when the poppies are together this will form a rainbow of poppies around our tree.

This will also be a symbol of hope to link with our tree of hope theme in school and a way of remembering those people we have lost at this time and a reminder of the work of our brilliant NHS, some of whom are parents in our school community.

To make the poppies we need over 200 empty 2ltr pop bottles. If you have any empty bottles we would really appreciate them and will recycle the leftovers. At this time the only way to collect them is for you to pop them into our bottle box which will be located on the school drive from Monday 19th October. The bottles will then be put into quarantine and cleaned and will be ready to use after half-term. 

Thank you so much for your support with this -we really appreciate it 😊

There was much excitement this morning as Class 6 and Class R buddies met for the first time today! They had the opportunity to introduce themselves to each other and have a lovely little chat! 😊

Another Week in Class 3...

A very busy but fun week this week!

This week, the children have been working hard with their column method for addition and subtraction. We have also had some quite tricky 'quiz style' questions around all our maths learning. What has been great to see is how hard the children are trying, giving 100% effort to all their learning...keep it up Class 3! 

In English, we have been exploring our new text 'The Creature in the Cave', looking at what we need to create great descriptions. They have produced some fantastic work around 'powerful adjectives'. I can tell we are going to have some more fabulous work to add to our 'Book of Hopes' display...it is already so full of the children's excellent work! 

The children have particularly enjoyed ART this week, creating some 'Tree of Hope' pictures using 'Kandinsky Concentric Circles' and they look gorgeous! The children have put so much effort into them, using blending skills with oil pastels and have really thought about their colour choices to express colours of 'hope'. We also went on a 'tree hunt' around school to examine the different shapes of trees, how the branches form and change direction which you can see they have really tried to include in their own tree designs. All of them have been displayed across school and are already spreading 'hope and joy' around the classroom and school. 

Another fabulous week had in Class 3! You are all doing so incredibly well, please keep it up :) Here are some pictures just to show how hard Class 3 have been working... IMG_4727

Class 5 - Star of the Week

This week's 'Star of the Week' is Harry. He has been working incredibly hard in everything he does and has blown myself and Mrs Shaw away with his dedication and outstanding presentation. Mrs Shaw has been particularly impressed whilst hearing him read. Keep up the hard work!
