Christmas is coming!
Year 3 is enjoying practicing Christmas songs ready to perform at the Christmas Concert in a few weeks time.
After a few sore fingers and thumbs, the children have now learnt all the chords for the ukulele, some of which have been very tricky indeed. They are sounding fantastic and have gained in confidence over the weeks. The teachers are having fun too!
Thank you to Hampshire Music.
This half term Year 3 are focusing on Football and working hard to improve their skills.
We have been enjoying using the school field and in the first two lessons we have been working on dribbling and passing skills.
We are looking forward to building on our skills and playing some fun mini matches.
Years 3 and 4 had a Bake Off Assembly on Wednesday (15 November).
Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry would have been so proud of our children!
Children learnt how to make cup cakes using different flavour yogurts, then they used the empty yoghurt pot as their measuring tool for all the other ingredients. Very clever!
Panic set in when the cakes needed to be baked because of a power cut but it didn’t last long and the children were able to enjoy eating them later on in the day. Scrummy!
Look what Year 3 found when we walked in the woods! The children were getting ready to write a good setting for their own myth.
3DP are busy making their ‘Guy’
Inspired by Ted Hughes’ book ‘The Iron Man’ from last term, children started making their own ‘Iron Man’. What colour eyes will they choose?
Safety Day 2015
The whole school enjoyed a fantastic Safety Day. Thanks to our special guests, Paramedics Sally and Sabrena, each class attended a first aid workshops focussing on the recovery position and CPR. They also led an assembly about what to do in an emergency and when 999 is the right choice.
In class each year group focussed on a different aspect of personal safety. Year 3 made sure they were safe on the road by learning and practicing how to cross a road safely. We also investigated clues to crossing safely that are not only seen but heard and felt as well. Bumps on the ground tell us that this is a safe place to cross as long as we remember to STOP, LOOK and LISTEN! Year 4 created wonderful models of beaches with lots of safety signals including safe swimming flags, lifeguards and safety buoys. In Year 5 they were investigating fire safety by looking at safe escapes routes. Finally short films were created by Year 6 learnt to promote firework safety.
