“I’m loving ‘angles’ instead”

This week in Year 5 we have been studying angles. We have practised the skill of drawing and measuring angles, as well as calculating angles on a  fixed line. In our number master lessons we have applied our knowledge of decimals to calculating money sentence questions.

In our topic lessons, we have created music, focusing on the pulse and rhythm. In our literacy lessons, the children have been creating their action and adventure stories. They have all done a wonderful job using relative clauses, fronted adverbials and similes & metaphors.

 

Well done Oak Class!

Tadpoles

Dragonfly class have been excited to see our frogspawn turn into tadpoles. They have been recording what they can see and observing them daily. The children have been writing some lovely instructions on how to look after tadpoles too!

Healthy Schools

Dear Parents/Carers,

Just a reminder that Mrs Higgitt will be holding a parents meeting tomorrow morning at 8.30am at the school to discuss how we can become a healthier school. Before writing a new food policy, we would like to hear the views of as many parents as possible. If you would like to attend the meeting, please report to the school office at 8.30am. If you are unable to make the meeting, please complete the questionnaire which was attached to the healthy schools letter which was sent home a couple of weeks ago.

Many Thanks

Stages

On Saturday, a large group of our dancers performed at Stages at The Colston Hall. It doesn’t matter how many times we watch our children perform on the big stage, we continue to be amazed at their confidence and stage presence and they just seem to get better and better. A thoroughly enjoyable performance which was dedicated to our wonderful and much missed caretaker, Val Knight. The dance celebrated and showcased all the amazing costumes Val made for the children over the years.

Gymnastic superstars!

We are very proud and delighted to tell you that last Friday some of our gymnastics took part in the North Bristol Schools Gymnastic competition. We entered 3 teams in to the competition and they performed outstandingly.

Our Year 3/4 tier 1 team came 3rd

Our Year 3/4 tier 2 team came 1st

Our Year 5/6 tier 1 team came 1st

An amazing achievement and a true testament to the children’s hard work and determination to succeed in all that they do.

The children will now go on to compete in the South West Regional competition in June.

Well done to all the children who competed and to their wonderful gymnastics coaches, Miss Dennison and Miss Donlan for all their hard work in preparing them for the competition.

Invertebrate Hunt!

In science today Birch Class – Year 4 went on an invertebrate hunt! First, we thought about what an invertebrate is (an animal without a backbone).  Then, we looked at a variety of invertebrates including insects, annelids and crustations and we learnt a bit about their history.  Next, we went outside looking in and around a variety of habitats to find some local invertebrates.

When looking for the invertebrates, we used a classification key to find out what each animal was, ticked it off and drew a quick sketch.  We found between 5-10 different species in our very own back garden!

 

 

Healthy Schools

You should have received a letter last week outlining our ambition to become a healthy school. As part of the process we want to consult with parents on what changes we can make as a school community. There will be a parent meeting on Wednesday 9th May at 8.30am at the school for parents to share their ideas. If you are unable to make the meeting, please complete the questionnaire attached to the letter and return to the school office so we can gather as many views as possible.

Many Thanks

Mrs Higgitt
