Another Global Week where we all enjoyed looking at South Africa. In the middle of it, some of the Year 5s popped out to play some football leaving the remaining children to do some research on South African scientists and safari animals. A huge thanks to Mrs Packham for all her help during the week – especially the cooking she did with some of the Year5s on Thursday . They enjoyed eating the delicious treat on Friday- there would have been pictures but they enjoyed it that much the bowl was literally licked clean! A thank you also goes to Sam for bringing in some of his holiday snaps- the children really enjoyed listening to (and seeing) your first hand experience of some of the animals.
The children shared their African tales in School Meeting Friday afternoon – some photos coming soon!
Just a quick reminder about our Anglo Saxon Day for both Lime Class (N) and Lime Class (C) next Wednesday 21st October . Parents should have received their invites to join us in the hall from 1.30 pm to share the children’s work. We would love for the children to dress up for the day and you are more than welcome to dress up too! Thank you to those who have RSVP’d , if you have not done so yet then please could you let the school know tomorrow (Friday) in order for correct provisions to be bought.
Thank you – We’re looking forward to an exciting day !
Lime Class N’s country for the week is South Africa. The children enjoyed researching about the country and using ‘Telegami’ they created a news report from their chosen location in South Africa. We are hoping to share some of these in our School Meeting on Friday.
Being that time of year again, when the mornings and evenings are becoming darker, we all needed a little recap on staying safe when travelling to and from school. We grabbed our high-vis jackets and enthusiastically gathered in the playground ready for Mrs Brewis to lead the way. We walked sensibly to meet Miss Dexter at the crossing point and were reminded about the importance of waiting safely on the pavement back from the edge of the kerb. When it was safe to do so, Miss Dexter walked into the road to stop the cars and we all crossed together safely. We were also reminded about noise level whilst walking up the field path and making sure we waited by the railings the other end if we have become separated from our parents along the path. As Year 4s and Year 5s we are now some of the older pupils in the school and it is VITAL that we set the example to younger children in the school. We have promised Mrs Needham that we are going to do this!
We have been studying 2d and 3d shapes in Maths. We had a go at constructing our own 3d shapes using straws and playdough. Funnily enough we all chose the more simple shapes and didn’t attempt the dodecahedron!
