What a brilliant time we have had in school this week.
Our WWII exhibition was superb and everyone who visited made comments about the variety of work displayed and the quality of the houses that we displayed. Some even had electric candles inside them to make it look as if they were on fire!
The exhibition was held on the same day as the school celebrated Red Nose Day. The following children entered cakes into the Red Nose Cake Competition: Kasey, Jess B, Tilly, Adam, Milly, Oscar, Theo, Imogen W, Peter, Tom, Ella and Holly. We had an initial judging in the classroom to choose the two cakes that would be entered into the upper school competition, with Kasey and Tilly being the chosen two.
Mrs Smith and Mrs Brown had a fantastic time tasting all the cakes in the hall and we all cheered when Kasey was announced as the overall Upper School Winner. Well done Kasey!
Judging over, the cakes were then sold on the playground to raise more money for Red Nose Day. I did make sure that all of the children who had entered the competition managed to get a slice of their own cakes! I am pleased to say that the school raised over £330 on the day.
In Literacy we have been looking at myths and the children have written their own myths. Everyone has tried really hard to meet the success criteria and I am really pleased with the effort and pride the children are taking in their work. Some children have commented that their handwriting isn’t as neat as it used to be, but they are producing a lot more work in the allotted time – neatness and quantity will come together with practice!
Solving problems has been the focus for this weeks maths and the children rose to the challenge admirably. Working independently the children were solving multi-step problems – involving logic ones.
In History we are looking at the plight of the Polish as the Germans invaded in 1939. This will be followed up in our visit next week (Friday 22nd March) to the Rural Life Centre.
Please make sure that forms have been completed and sent into school for this trip.
Next week sees the beginning of 6 weeks of revision for year 5 and 6. The children have been made aware of the new timetable and copies will be available on Monday for those that want one.
Thank you all for your support this week.
