Year 1 Mini Brass Taster Sign Up - Reminder

Year 1 enjoyed a Mini Brass taster session last week. It’s always a popular activity and the children had great fun finding out about brass instruments and playing the hose-a-phones!

Mrs Fisher has been running Mini Brass Club for Year 2s for a few years now and it is a great introduction to future musical opportunities in the school. Many of our talented brass players first picked up their instruments in Mini Brass.

To sign your child up for Mini Brass in September, please complete the form below:

Class 1SS Chocolate Maths!

Class 1SS spent time revising their doubling skills to 20 by decorating their virtual cookie with real chocolate chips! We recited our doubling and spotted patterns in our answers before being rewarded by enjoying our chocolate chips at the end of the activity.

What makes a good friend?

As part of our PSHE Jigsaw objectives, we were prompted to think about what we look for in a good friend. We drew around Elliott and filled his outline with all our ideas about what makes a good friend. We then competed a sorting game so we could discuss what are good friendship behaviours and those that aren't.

Class 3Y Record Breakers

In English, 3Y have been studying information texts using the Guinness World Records and The World's Laziest Duck and other records. For the homework, the children attempted records suggested on the GWR Kids website. These included how many socks you could put on one foot in 30 secs and the number of teddies caught whilst blindfolded.

Following on from this, pupils decided on some of their own records to break. We took to the field and attempted records such as; most skips in 1 minute, number of push ups in 30 seconds and most football penalties scored in 1 minute. The children will now be writing recounts of their record-breaking experiences.  

As you can see from the photographs, much fun was had by all.
