    Random Acts of Kindness

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Miss Lanceley led an anti bullying assembly this week and highlighted how important kindness is in everyday life. She set a challenge for every child to complete random acts of kindness (RAC), not just for one day, week or month, but whenever you see the chance! A list of 30 random acts of kindness was given to all the children to bear in mind. These ranged from holding a door open for someone to doing the washing up at home. It goes without saying that if every one in the world strives to complete these acts of kindness, we would all be much better off. The list can be found on the class website under Autumn 2018 on the school website.

    Lots of discussion and problem solving today in Maths. Mrs Williams set out a carousel of challenges for the children to complete in groups which everyone was keen to get involved in.

    Type Onesie Day!

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Children and staff enjoyed 'lounging' around in their onesies/pjs all day! Hopefully we all helped raise funds for a diabetes charity. If anyone forgot their pound, there is still time to bring it in to the office.

    Year 5 have been designing road signs for a competition, the winning design will be turned into a real sign for the road by school. The children were asked to think about how they can make their sign stand out and some very creative techniques were used as a result.

    PE

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    PE today required the children to work as a team in some varied relays. A wide range of skills were required from crab walking to dribbling a football. Everyone showed great support to their peers and team which is what helped make the activities so fun.

    Times Tables Rock Stars

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Most of the class have already logged in to this to try it out which is super. If they haven't, they are missing out! A fantastic way to practice times tables at home or on the go! They can either play on computer/laptop via the website or download the app onto a tablet/phone. The competition is already heating up between Mr Hart and I! Who can be a true ROCK LEGEND?

    The Haka!

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    I wouldn't want to face this war dance before a rugby match! This week the class started creating their own war dance and had a focus of including a canon into their routine. Voices are probably a little hoarse after the chanting, but it only added to the intimidating dances!

    Reading Records

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Reading records have been sent home this week. We please ask that you sign your child's reading for the week. We have provided an example of what your child's book should look like. We will be keeping a record of how often your child will read and what type of books they are reading. We are hoping to broaden children's literature and provide a wider range of experience and develop a love of reading.

    Our second PE lesson saw the class start their Dance lessons. They watched and replicated the Haka, a New Zealand tribal dance. Lots of shouting, lots of stamping and lots of fun!

    Fair Tests

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Today in science we have been working scientifically and considering how we can plan a fair test. To do this we considered how we can make sugar dissolve quicker in water. After the disappointment of being told the sugar cubes were not for eating, the class confirmed their predictions that temperature can play a big part.
