    The Day the Crayons Quit

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    During assembly today the whole school had a special delivery - a letter and a pile of parcels! Each class had a parcel to open and were excited to find the book 'The Day the Crayons Quit' inside. Over the next couple of weeks we will be exploring this book further in all subjects from letters in literacy to colours of emotions in PSHE. Keep looking at our blog to find out how we get on.

    Housekeeping

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    This year has flown by and we have already started our final term in Class 2! Please make sure your children have a water bottle (with water), sunhat and suncream (this must be named) in school. Year 2 will be swimming on WEDNESDAY afternoons starting this week. Girls must have swimming costumes and boys are to wear swimming trunks/shorts (not long board shorts). The children must have flip flops (or similar) to wear down to the pool and back. Please bring homework books in on MONDAYS. I will continue to give out new homework on Tuesdays. Lets have a wonderful summer term!

    Sports day 2018

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    What a brilliant sports day Key Stage 1 had on Thursday morning! Everyone gave their all and seemed to really enjoy themselves. It was great to see so many parents and other family members coming to support the children throughout the morning. I was so impressed with how the children supported each other both in the races and the carousel of activities.

    Royal Wedding Bingo

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    Class 2 have created a royal wedding bingo card to use while watching the royal wedding on Saturday. I have included the picture of the bingo card for you to use if you would like. The things to look out for are: a crown or tiara, Queen Elizabeth II, a horse and carriage, a soldier, the bride and groom, a flag, a trumpet and a fancy hat. Have fun!

    Mindfulness day

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    On Friday 11th May the whole school enjoyed having a mindfulness day. We had lots of different activities throughout the day including colouring, yoga and playdough. Each class had a dog therapy session which involved the children meeting an adorable puppy called Maddie. Class 2 were very calm and respectful and asked lots of sensible questions. We finished the day off with some time on the field using our new 'giant bubble' kit. The children loved chasing and popping the bubbles and we will definitely be using it again.

    Art Competition Deadlines Coming Up!

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We have two exciting art competitions coming up! The first is being run by Berkeley Hunt Agricultural Society, who will provide the school with a wheelbarrow and 2 bags of compost. Using the theme "Follow the Yellow Brick Road – At the end of the road you will find good things,” the children need to design a garden to go in the wheelbarrow with vegetables or flowers. How you interpret the theme is entirely up to you. We will then use the winning design and create the wheelbarrow by appealing to local suppliers to help with the contents. The wheelbarrow will be judged at Berkeley Show on Sunday 24th June. A prize fund of £500 will be awarded to the winning school. We would like the children, on a rota basis, to stay with their wheelbarrows to answer any questions from the general public, so we will be asking for volunteers who will be given free child entry tickets to the show by The Show Committee. Entry forms can be found on the school website on term pages and the closing date is 18/5/18. The second competition is to design a wooden castle to be carved into the top of the large wooden stump in the courtyard near Year 1 and fairy doors to go at the bottom. The winning design will see their creation carved by a real wood artist who will be working with the school. The design could be based on Berkeley Castle, a fairy tale/ book or completely from your imagination. Entry forms can be found on the school website on term pages and the closing date is 18/5/18.

    MashCam Brunel

    Posted by Mrs B Melley
    Class 2 became Isambard Kingdom Brunel using the MashCam app on PurpleMash. After watching 'Brunel' tell his story, the children typed up their favourite fact on the laptops. They then used the webcam to import a picture of their face on to a image of Brunel. The children loved combining their history knowledge and computer skills in this way.
