Thank you so much for all of my wonderful gifts! Have a fantastic Summer break and although the children are moving in to their new classes, I’m sure I will see them all in September! It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with them all and I wish them every success for Y5!
Thank you so much for providing all of the yummy food for our party today. We had a fantastic time playing games, dancing, eating and watching a movie. The perfect end to a Friday!
As I’m sure you are aware, I have been off ill since Friday and came back today. I am really glad to be back and feeling so much better. This week, the children have been working with our new Y5 teacher; Miss Cheetham. It has been a great opportunity for the children who are going in to Miss Cheetham’s class next year and I’m sure the other children have really enjoyed learning and meeting our new member of staff.
I do apologise that I was unable to update the blog last week, unfortunately I was too ill to do this on Friday but I’m back now so will put up some updates shortly.
When I joined the class after Easter, I told the children that if they worked hard and managed to get over 100 marbles then their would be a class treat. I’m thrilled to let you know that the children have reached their target. Therefore, on Friday afternoon, we will be having a class party! We will be watching a film of their choice, playing games and I have invited the children to bring sweets, cakes, crisps, drinks and chocolate to enjoy during the afternoon. Please let me know if there are any allergies which I need to be aware of.
The children have worked exceptionally hard this term and I am very proud of all of their achievements. It has been an absolute joy to work with them all and I’m really looking forward to celebrating their successes on Friday.
In maths, we have been exploring creating shapes in teams using string. We were asked to make different shapes which were both regular and irregular and were given a set time to do this; a great lesson outside!
In maths, we continued our shape learning today and used geo boards to make a range of quadrilaterals using elastic bands. We then needed to work out if the quadrilaterals we had made were regular or irregular and draw these in our books.
In maths, we have been identifying the properties of shapes. We looked at regular and irregular shapes, how many sides they have and how many vertices. We also looked at different angles in the shapes which included right angles, acute angles and obtuse angles. Finally, we worked in teams of four and in partners, we picked a shape and the other team had to ask questions to try and work out the shape which we had picked. Whoever guessed the most amount of correct shapes, was the winner. We loved getting our competitive maths heads on!
On Monday, we started orienteering in our P.E lesson. We had a great time using a map of the school and exploring the school grounds to find the flags which have been placed in lots of different areas – even in the woods!
I hope you have had a lovely weekend and enjoyed all of the sunshine! Over the last few weeks, the news has been very harrowing to wake up to. In particular, the recent horrific fire at the Grenfell Tower. As a school, we have decided to raise money for those who have been affected by this terrible tragedy. Therefore, the children have been invited to wear their own clothes tomorrow and bring a donation of £1 which will be sent to help those within the community of the Tower. I am very sorry for the late notice of this and thank you for helping us to support this charitable event and as always, we send our thoughts and prayers to those who have lost so much.
Today, we had a fantastic time on our visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We loved seeing all of the animals, including polar bears, lions, tigers and monkeys! We even got to hold a few mini animals too! A great way to spend a Friday. A huge thank you to the parent helpers, Mrs Murphy, Mrs English and Sarah, we really appreciated all of your hard work. We also had a surprise visit from Mrs Woodhead who got a huge cheer and hug from all of the children – lovely to see her again!
Have a great weekend,
Miss Kidd & Mrs Francis :)
This week, we explored the woods during our science lesson. We had to find six different leaves in pairs and then use a key to identify the key features of the leaves. We had a great time and really enjoyed the sunny weather.
