Truck Safety - 21st May 2018

Monday 21st May 2018

Today the whole school took part in a truck safety demonstration on the junior playground courtesy of DHL. The children thoroughly engaged with the gentlemen who came to discuss road safety around large vehicles, particularly lorries and trucks. They found out all about the dangerous blind spots around larger vehicles, and how to cross roads safely. Jessika and Daniel, alongside Miss Ellis and Miss Stocks, had the opportunity to sit inside the lorry and discovered how difficult it was to hear noises from the outside. They also saw how difficult it was to see children and adults stood at the front of the lorry.

Please do remind your children abour road safety and how important it is that they are supervised at all times, especially in built up areas near traffic.

We had lots of fun today celebrating the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. We discussed the roles of each member of the Royal?family?and created our own royal family trees. The children can now name different members of the royal family! We also discussed the royal engagement, and how people might be celebrating at the weekend.?

After lunch, we created our own Union Jack biscuits using icing sugar and laces, and enjoyed eating them after our royal disco. ?The boys and girls have had lots of fun today!!


How do plants grow?

Monday 14th May 2018

Our new learning challenge this week is all about plants! We will look closely at different types of plants in the local area and will name different parts.  We will also be talking about the functions and what plants need to help them grow. We will plant our own cress seeds and observe their growth over the next few weeks. We will also use our measuring skills to measure the height of our cress.  The children can’t wait to learn all about plants! 


Why are humans not like tigers?

Friday 11th May 2018

During our learning challenge, 'Why are humans not like tigers?', we researched lots of information about different types of animals, and sorted them into different animal groups, including mammals, fish and reptiles. We identified different types of eaters, and sorted animals into carnivors, herbivores and omnivores. We also named different body parts and explored our senses. The children loved guessing the different items and sounds using their 5 senses!!


Songfest 2018

Wednesday 21st March 2018

The children had an amazing time at the Town Hall to celebrate Songfest 2018! Each year, we attend Songfest alongside other schools to celebrate a given topic. This year our focus was all about transport. Each song focused on different forms of travel, including planes, cars and barges! We joined in with each song using our own actions, and performed our year group song all about barges in front of the other schools. We had a fantastic time and can?t wait to join in again next year!?


World Book Week - When I Grow Up

Monday 5th March 2018

This year the whole school focussed on one book, Tim Minchin's When I Grow Up. In Year One,we have been thinking all week about our dreams and ambitions. Throughout the week, we invited any of our lovely parents and relatives into school to talk to us about their own jobs. A huge thank you to those who gave up their afternoons to spend it with us. You have really inspired us and given us lots to think about! The children loved hearing about different jobs, ranging from A&E nurses, bank workers and fire fighters. We had an amazing time sitting inside a fire engine and even practised our target skills using a fire hose!

Throughout the week we wrote about different job roles and created our own poems too! On Friday, we all dressed up as what we would like to be when we grow up. We had a fabulous week and loved talking about our future ambitions.

What a fantastic day we have had today!? To celebrate the landing event of our 'toys' learning challenge, we had our very own teddy bear's picnic.? We brought in our own teddy bears and introduced them to our friends.? We created lots of teddy crafts throughout the dya and enjoyed a picnic in the school hall.? We had lots of tasty treats, played games and dance to different songs with our teddies.? We really enjoyed our topic all about toys and it was lovely to see how enthusiastic the children were during their learning.?

Well done year 1!


School Council News

Saturday 30th September 2017

During Friday's Medal Assembly, Mr Garry announced this year’s new School Council Representatives. During the previous weeks, children in all classes had taken part in a class vote to elect a Class Councilor. All elected councilors stood up at the front of assembly and received a certificate and councilor badge. Councilors will hold their first meeting during the course of next week. 

This year was different, however, as Mr Garry had decided to seek the election of candidates from both the Infant and Early Years departments so that the whole school would be represented in our council. Two representatives have been elected from Year 1 and again from Year 2. Two representatives have also been elected from Reception. These two councilors will act as representatives of the whole of EYFS until the summer term when a nominated member from both morning and afternoon nursery will take up the role. In addition to these changes, a member from last year's school council was nominated to serve another term under the position of 'Head Councilor'. This councilor will oversee the running of the school council with Mr Garry and will act as a mentor to all new councilors. 

Many congratulations to all those who were successfully elected by their peers. Your class clearly has a lot of faith in you and as a school, we too all have faith that you all will bring a positive contribution to our school over the course of the year. 

 

The elected members from all year groups are as follows:

EYFS - Sienna Houghton & Emily Swift

Year 1 - Ethan Walls & Alex Winstanley

Year 2 - Harley Letts & Lacey Mcevoy

Year 3 - Grace Langton & Rebecca Ashton

Year 4 - Olivia Mower & Charlotte Ashton

Year 5 - Mia Greenwood & Clayton Grimes

Year 6 - Alex Jonkers & Molly Davies

Head Councilor - Alesha Johnston
