Strictly Maths Awards!

strictly-maths

Today we celebrated the completion of the Strictly Maths Challenges in a whole school assembly and Councillor Girl Kirk from the local community came in to join us. She commented, ‘I am so proud of you all for having such enthusiasm for maths’, as well as speaking to the children about how maths is vital for their life in the future.

During the assembly, the children eagerly guessed the number of Strictly Maths Challenges that had been returned and were thrilled to find out that 90 children from Year 1 to 6 had achieved this, beating our previous total of 82! This soon increased to a staggering 92 booklets with two last-minute entries from Belinda and Melinda! A special mention should also be given to the enthusiastic mathematicians in Oak Class who brought back 78% of their booklets and for the children shown above who were selected as the ‘Mathematician of the Class’.

Once again we would like to send a big thank you to the parents who continue to support their children with learning at home, as well as those who attended today’s assembly!

 

 

 

 

 

A Fond Farewell

IMG_3356Thanks everyone for all of your kind wishes and generous gifts today – not to mention the surprise party! It really was a surprise! I don’t know how you kept that one secret! It was lovely to spend some quality time with the children – you’re all fabulous and you’ve given me so many wonderful memories to take away with me. I wish you all a fabulous summer and I’m already planning a return surprise visit of my own!
Best wishes,
Miss Andrews

The Oscars had better watch out!

Oak Class have been producing and starring in their own fantastic iMovie trailers. They’ve created their own mysterious stories based on ‘The Giant’s Necklace’ by Michael Morpurgo. They had a great time filming and there was even a stunt-double! See if you can spot them. Finally, they made popcorn boxes to hold their treats so that they could premier their trailers in style! 5 stars!

Life Bus Year 5

 

Meeting Harold

Meeting Harold

Oak class had a great time when they visited the Life Bus today. They were made to think about the choices that we will make in the future as they learnt about the effects of alcohol on the body and how medicines contain drugs. They learnt about how to be assertive and say no to other people when dealing with peer pressure – as a bystander they can help to support their friends. And finally they met Harold the giraffe who told a funny joke about Russian dolls – they’re full of themselves apparently! Thanks Harold and Pete!

Chess Championships

Receiving certificates in assembly

Some Year 4 and 5 children took part in the Bristol Schools Chess Championships yesterday which involved over 100 children. This was the first of its kind for our school and our 8 players proved to be great ambassadors for Stoke Park. Everyone played well and concentrated hard and won many of their games – they were even playing older children who were far more experienced. Their chess tutor Paul said that ‘Stoke Park should be very proud of all of their efforts, and their behaviour was impeccable.’ Well done Stoke Park!!!Stoke Park should be very proud of all of their efforts, and their behaviour was impeccable.

May School Council Meeting

The School Council met with one of the governors, Alice, to give their opinions on the values of the school. The aim is to bring together the opinions of the school community into a statement of our collective moral purpose, which will inform the future decisions made by the governors. The School Council would love it if parents could take this survey too which can be found by following this link: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/NR2YTS9
