Owls learnt so much in Remembrance Enrichment Week. They were very lucky to have a visit from Riley’s Uncle, Corporal Pennington. Here are some of our pictures:
In year 4 we have been reading Charlie and the Choloate factory as our class book. We have designed our own chocolate bars and this week we got the chance to create them and review someone else’s.
Have a look at our designs.
The children had a fantastic time this week meeting and learning all about these wonderful birds of Prey.
This week as part of Remembrance week we have been looking at the First World War. We turned our classroom into a battlefield with trenches. We learned about what soldiers did all day and even had a go at fighting the enemy. We are going to use this experience to produce some diaries later this week. Have a look at what we did below.
This week we have been investigating which habitat a woodlice likes the best. We chose four different materials; sand, soil, grass and twigs. We separated the materials and then placed 7 woodlice in to the container. We observed the woodlice for 45 minutes and then recorded which habitat had the most woodlice.
Which habitat do you think the woodlice preferred?
Owls have worked so hard in this first half term so and have settled in brilliantly. They have enjoyed learning about the Great Fire of London topic and have done lots of acting and artwork about it. In science, they are learning about different materials and their properties. They have been working hard on addition and subtraction in maths and doing some amazing writing about a dragon during literacy. Please see the pictures below from their first few weeks: Continue reading “Superstar Owls!”
Reception enjoyed their final music session with Mrs Shirley this week. They learned how to use the instruments to create a tune for the queens knickers .
On Tuesday we visited skipton Castle – we had such a fun time learning about the different names of each part of the castle .
In maths we have been learning how to add to numbers together. We even attempted to write a number sentence.
To keep healthy we are brushing our teeth everyday .
Finally, we were so happy to win the attendance trophy with 99.3%!!!
We have worked really hard in year 4 these past few weeks on understanding column addition and subtraction. Today we looked at 8 sums which were all incorrect. We had to work in pairs to work out how the sum was wrong and what mistake had been made. We really enjoyed it.
The following photo and article were published in Saturday 21st October’s edition of the ‘Wigan Today’ newspaper.
Breakfast is on Amazon with new school scheme
Pupils at a Leigh primary enjoyed a healthy breakfast – thanks to help from multi-national internet giant Amazon. Staﬀ from the company’s Warrington centre have provided funding for Newton Westpark’s Magic Breakfast. The scheme helps provide nutritious meals for youngsters.
Headteacher Vivien Birchall said: “Magic Breakfast provision is having a big impact on our school, with pupils enjoying time each morning to socialise and read before starting their lessons, settled and ready to learn.” Teams from Amazon have also donated cash to similar schemes at schools from across the country.
