Festive Fun

At the end of last week, we were treated to a delicious Christmas dinner which was enjoyed by all of our festively dressed children and staff. The hall was filled with Christmas music and the joyful sounds of chatting and laughing. We were joined virtually by Revd Graham for a Christingle Service and each class has had a fun filled Christmas party. Also this week, Year R have been busy making presents to take home for their loved ones, Year 1/2 enjoyed designing and making cards, Year 3/4 have been reflecting on Angels and Year 5/6 have been comparing this half term's whole class reading texts. We all wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Christmas Lunch

Year R - Christmas is Coming!

The children have been extremely busy preparing a very special present to take home for Christmas. I won’t give away the surprise but there has been drawing, writing, printing, wrapping and labelling! They can’t wait to give their gifts.

We also enjoyed celebrating Christmas by taking part in the whole school Christingle Service. 

Year 1/2 - A brilliant Nativity performance

We thought you would like to see some more photos of our Nativity. What superstars the children were!

Year 3/4 - Enjoying a moment's peace!

We have been reading and performing some festive poetry this week in Year 3/4 and we have also been busy using our mathematical skills (learned this term) to solve lots of Christmas maths mysteries. In addition, excitingly, on Wednesday, we reflected on what Angels may look like, what their jobs are and why Angels are important in the first Christmas story. This week has been rounded off with lots of celebration in our classes of Christmas – Jesus’ birthday – one of the most important times in the Christian calendar! Amidst all the business we took a little trip to the KS2 library to take time to find some treasures to read and to rest and enjoy a quiet moment or two. We hope that you also find moments of such peace and joy this Christmas. Happy Christmas everyone from Year 3/4!

Year 5/6 - Comparing Texts

This week the children have designed their front covers for The Highwayman and self assessed their writing using success criteria that they created themselves in class. This was a highly successful and enjoyable activity that helped the children to reflect on their writing’s effect on the reader. They have completed reading Boy Overboard which the children thoroughly enjoyed. To end this unit they produced a summary mind map making links between characters, themes, settings and plots. In computing, the children completed their true/false circuits using Sam Labs and created their unique quiz to test their programming. In RE, the children have explored the concept of Jesus as a messiah and considered what a modern day messiah would say to the people of the twenty first century.
