Thank you to everyone who baked/bought cakes for our coffee morning and for everyone who came – we raised over £200 for Macmillan! Please see our pictures below.
Owls have had so much fun learning about the royal wedding this week. They even did some acting and had a English tea party.
Today we all came to school wearing red, white and blue in celebration of the royal wedding. All of the classes have enjoyed learning about the royal wedding and have been very excited to take part in lots of activities. We wish Prince Harry and Meghan Markle the best of luck on their big day!
For our enrichment week this term, we have been doing lots of work based around the book My Name is not Refugee by Kate Milner. We have learned about the different push and pull factors that make someone want to or have to leave their country and we looked at the negative and positive emotions a person would feel when leaving their home in search for a better life. In the book, the little boy has to pack just some of his belongings into a back bac; we looked at what we would take and why. Please have a look at some of our work below.
This week, all of our learning has been around the book ‘My Name is Not Refugee’. We have learned all about the push and pull factors that refugees face and how we would feel in their position. We packed up our things and walked around the playground to our new country. When we arrived in our new class, we listened to a story in a different language and it made us feel really anxious and alone. We also discussed values and how you can take your values anywhere in the world. Some of our favourite values were equality, world at peace and health.
It has also been World Book Day this week. Have a look at our class photo.
This afternoon Year 5 have applied for our class jobs for this term. The applications went through a selection process and then we voted anonymously for child A, B, C or D. Read more to see who was successful!
As you may know, this week has been anti-bullying week. Each class has focused on a specific theme around bullying and year 5 focused on cyber-bullying. We had some really good ideas about how to prevent bullying online and we were very interested to find out more about Prince William’s new cyber-bullying campaign: Stop, Speak, Support. We created our own iPhone-styled posters to promote preventing cyber-bullying.
Today we have worn something spotty to raise money for Children in Need. Thank you to all the children and staff for all their efforts! We are very pleased to say that we raised over £195 for a great cause. Here are some photos of our favourite spotty outfits.
This week during Enrichment Week, Kingfishers have been learning about Roald Dahl and Helen Sharman. Did you know Roald Dahl use to be a fighter pilot before he became a writer? Did you know Helen Sharman was the first British astronaut to fly in space? We have really enjoyed producing lots of work across the curriculum around these two people and creating our display in the hall this afternoon. Have a look at our science pictures below where we had to investigate which paper was the best for Roald Dahl to write on. It had to look nice, be strong and be easy to fold to make lines. Other pictures also show the children making their own Mir Space Station which Helen Sharman flew to space on in 1991.
For our enrichment week this term, each class has been learning more about a famous British man and woman. We have produced lots of fantastic work which we shared in the hall on Friday afternoon. Please have a look at our boards below.
