This week we have been busy learning about coordinates and how to plot these correctly. The Year4s became archaeologists for the lesson hunting out dinosaurs and the Year 5s learnt about translations and how to reflect shapes in a mirror line- I was very impressed with their first attempts! Well done !
Well done to all the children who attended the Gymnastics competition at Stonehenge Sports Centre. For some it was the first time they had represented the school and they were very excited about wearing the new kit! They had an action packed afternoon trying out different activities including ; the springboards and vaults , Crazy Cartwheels, ribbons and trampettes.
On Thursday 11th February the Year 5s enjoyed a visit to St John The Baptist Church in Pewsey to take part in the Life Exhibition . Whilst they were there they used interactive tablets, graphic panels, quizzes, films, songs and a discussion café to help learn about the story of Jesus and his relevance today. They listened really well and really thought about their answers to questions asked.
The children have been continuing with their stories are her are some opening sentences…
‘I stared at it carefully from my perch. Stranded, glistening in the river, it just sat there, still, not worrying at all. ‘ Morrigan
‘The footsteps were coming closer, he became petrified. He didn’t know what to do, hide or stay. ‘ William
‘Eventually my mistress came down. By then I was so hungry I began to scratch at my bowl and whine. My mistress picked up my super shiny bowl and headed for the garage.’ Maisie
they really draw you in and make you want to read on!
On Friday the children enjoyed the visit from Hattie and Rachel from the Bike It + scheme. KS2 had a short assembly about the benefits of cycling before they arrived in our class for a puncture repair workshop! The children worked well in their groups to identify and repair their punctures and were excellent listeners ! Well done Lime N!
We’ve begun writing up our stories for the Radio 2 competition. We started earlier in the week by looking at past entries and the choice of vocabulary used. We were amazed at some of the WOW words used by 8 and 9 year olds and have made it our mission to make ours even better! It’s important that our opening lines draw in the reader and Mrs Needham is very proud of what we have written so far. Watch this space for some snippets from our stories!
