Our Trip to the Streetlife Museum

Year 3 and 4 have been on trips to the Streetlife Museum this week! The purpose of our visit was to take part in a workshop called ‘A Child’s War: Evacuation’. During the day, we got evacuated to the countryside, explored a 1940’s street scene and found a bike that had been used by soldiers in WWII. We had a great day!

 

European Day of Languages!

Ola! Bonjour! Guten Tag! Ciao! Yasuo!

On Thursday Y56 celebrated European Day of Languages 2019 with a tour of different European countries to learn different languages.

Children got to grip with Spanish, French, German, Italian and Greek! They completed lots of small activities and worked hard to master new words and pronounce them clearly – well done children!

Layla created a super German cartoon strip using basic conversation language

Y5JON have a super time learning Spanish!

The Greek language went down well but not everyone was keen on the olives!

This week we have been learning to throw and catch a ball. We started by warming up and stretching.

We used a chest pass to throw the ball to each other.

We also practised over head passes and underarm throws.

While our partners were throwing, we were catching the balls. We had to make sure our arms were out and our knees were bent ready to catch the ball!

At the end we showcased our skills to the rest of our class!

Stay and Read

Parents, carers and grandparents  in Y3/4 were invited to come into school to stay and read this week. They also got the chance to see our lovely new classrooms and meet our new teacher. We read a story to our adult and then our adult read a story to us! We also looked at the Y3/4 common exception words that we need to learn by the end of the year.

 

Thank you for joining us!

Blitz Poetry

Poetry is Year 3/4’s first English unit this term and they have been looking at different Blitz Poetry. They generated vocabulary about the Blitz, edited and improved their word choices and combined sentence strips to create a group poem.

 

Finally, they wrote and performed their own Blitz poem.

 

 

Y3/4 Wow Day

In the Autumn term, Y3/4 are instigating ‘What was life like in WWII?” To launch out topic the children spent the day in the life of an evacuee.  The children came dressed up for the day and we had some fantastic costumes!

The children were  evacuated to different classrooms were they decided what to pack in their suitcase, wrote letters home, created some evacuee artwork and made a meat paste sandwich.

The children learned what it was like to be an evacuee and are excited to find out why children like them were evacuated.

KS1 WOW DAY!

Key Stage One have had an exciting day to introduce our new topic ‘What Can You Show the World?’ Our circus pod looked fabulous filled with clowns, acrobats, weightlifters, show masters and audience members!

 

Year one enjoyed making circus foods for our stall like popcorn, candyfloss, sweets and lollipops!

Year two enjoyed making lion art as we have learned already that lions used to be found in travelling circuses around the world.

We can’t wait to learn all about the history of the circus!

 

 

Year 2 loved The Deep!

Year 2 had a fabulous day exploring The Deep today! We learned lots of new facts and enjoyed watching the sharks feeding. Just look at some of our super photos.
