Here is our newsletter for this half term!
On Thursday Y3 enjoyed a tremendous sports day at the English Institute of Sport.
During the event we took part in a range of activities. We all tried our hardest and Mr Little is proud of the effort shown by every one of us.
Some of us even received a special mention from our group leaders. These children perfectly demonstrated the school games values of teamwork, respect, honesty, self belief, passion and determination.
This morning Mr Little gave us a strange code written in Roman numerals. We had to use our knowledge of Roman numerals to convert the numbers into modern digits and then use those numbers to crack the code.
Congratulations to this person who was recognised by our swimming teachers as having made a huge improvement in his water confidence.
In Sapphire Class, we didn’t let the snow and ice stop us from celebrating world book day. Today we could come to school dressed as our favourite book character.
During the morning, we also enjoyed a fun and engaging story telling workshop with Andy Messer.
As part art of celebrations in school we also had a door decorating competition. Each class decorated their door in the style of a book. We chose ‘Where’s Wally’ by Martin Handford.
We can’t wait to use our vouchers to get a new book.
On Wednesday, we didn’t let the snow and freezing temperatures stop our learning.
This half term we have been looking at measurement in our maths learning. On Wednesday, we braved the snow and cold to complete some snowball maths. We worked in pairs to throw snowballs and then measured the distance they travelled using a range of different measuring instruments. We then added the distance of each throw together to find the overall length of our throws.
Congratulations to this person who was recognised by our swimming teachers as having an astounding attitude to her swimming.
Yesterday, ambassadors from Sapphire class visited Onyx class to talk about road safety. Our ambassadors explained what we had learnt during road safety and answered any questions Onyx class had.
