A fantastic PGL week

What a fantastic week at PGL for Year 6!  We really missed the three children who couldn’t make it and look forward to seeing them on Monday.

The children have all tried so many new things and have hopefully surprised themselves with what they were able to achieve.  They have all been awesome.  The adults were all impressed with their team-building skills, courage, behaviour, sense of fun and table manners!

We have taken lots of photos of the week, so if you would like to have them put on a memory stick for you to keep, then please send your child in with one in the next couple of weeks and I can sort that – there are some great ones!

Have a restful weekend and hopefully your children will teach you one of their new songs . . . “What’s that I hear . . .?” (You know all the words and actions kids!) 😉

Welcome to Year 1!

Welcome to year one! It has been fantastic to meet your children over the past week and get to know them better. I can tell we are going to have a great year!

In Maths, we have been working at number recognition and simple addition. Next week we will continue to look at addition.

We have started our Dinosaurs topic and we are looking forward to exploring more in the weeks to come during both Literacy and Science.

Homework packs have been sent home today and they are linked to our upcoming learning with our topic.

Enjoy the weekend!

WW2 Garden Plot

During Summer 1, Year 5 learnt about Britain during the Second World War.

We learn about rationing to air raids and evacuees to propaganda. As part of our art learning we designed our own vegetable plot in the style of a World War Two ‘Grow Your Own’

We were also incredibly lucky to have an Anderson Air Raid shelter made and delivered to us- Thank you to Daisy Ashtons Dad – It looks fantastic!

We planted carrots, sweetcorn, cucumber, tomatoes, beetroot and cress – were excited to taste them once they have grown!

 

Year 5 week 5

What an exciting start to the week!

We were given our log in and passwords for Times Table Rock Star which we all had a go at during our Computing lesson on Monday.

They are safely located in our Reading Records so we cant lose them!

Use the different events to challenge yourself and your friends

Measure measures and more measures!

This week the children have done some fantastic work on measuring. We measured how long we were using non-standard measures and then made our own metre sticks. The children had a great time measuring things around the classroom using their own metre sticks, take a look in our gallery and see what we have been up to!

The children are in the middle of creating their own story after all the hard work they have done learning ‘The magic porridge pot’ I am looking forward to reading all the finished work at the beginning of next week.

The Year 1 maths work shop will be next Tuesday at 3.20 please join us and do some learning with your child, learning is always better together!

Have a fantastic weekend

We have been learning all about each others holidays, what we all expect from year 5 and what the future holds for us.

Year 5 have excelled at maths and literacy approaching new learning with enthusiasm 🙂

Researching the rainforest has been exciting and we are all looking forward to finding out more when we visit Whipsnade Zoo and are fortunate enough to have an actually Zoo Keeper talk to us about the environment and how animals form the Rainforest adapt.

 

Have a great weekend 🙂

Bhaktivedanta Manor

Year 4 had a fantastic day today at the Bhaktivedanta Manor. We had an introductory talk where we found out all about Hinduism, the Gods and how the live/worship. We then had a tour of some of the grounds which were beautiful. The manor is an old Tudor building which was donated by George Harrison from the Beatles. It is surrounded by fields, gardens and beautiful flowers. We then went on an oxen drawn cart to go and visit some of the cows that are kept at the manor. We got to feed them, find out how they are looked after and stroke them! We then returned to the manor to get dressed in traditional clothes, visit a worship ceremony and eat our delicious lunch. Not all of the children liked all of the food but everyone tried everything and found something they liked! Finally, we got our faces painted and heard a story before returning to the coach. We had a brilliant day and really enjoyed ourselves. All of the photos are on the website.

PGL!

What a week!

Year 5 were absolutely fantastic at PGL, from their behaviour to their attitude to trying out new and some really scary activities!

After setting off on the coach with some tearful goodbyes, year 5 made the short journey to Liddington where we were greeted by our group leader, Alice.

What a lovely lady!

After finding our feet in our snazzy bedrooms Year 5 went for an explore and a few activities before a Delicious dinner.

We then spent the rest of the week doing some some amazing activities including the Giant Swing, Abseiling, mountain biking and much much more.

On the website some of the pictures are available to look at.

Miss Ford is currently working on a folder of all the pictures – so if you would like a copy send in a USB and the photos can be downloaded on for any children who would like a copy.

By the end of the week we were all exhausted! So our last point of call was the disco! we had fun dancing to lots of our favourite music and played some interesting games 🙂

Miss Ford, Miss Jeals and Mrs Bennett were extremely impressed with all of year 5 and would like to thank them for their exemplary behaviour during the trip

 

 

What do we know about the Romans?

We have had a great week in Year 4, researching, drafting, editing and presenting information texts about the Romans. We have looked at a number of different aspects of Roman life, including: Leisure, inventions, everyday life, children, army and food. We have found out lots of interesting facts and have worked really hard to put these into our own words.
In Maths, we have been looking at area, perimeter, translation and symmetry, recapping on previous topics that we needed to look over.
We have now completed our Science topic of electricity and will start a new unit of states of matter next week.  We have also been drawing shells in Art, to practise our drawing skills and techniques. In PE, we are looking at athletics, and worked on our javelin throws this week.

Next week, on Tuesday, we have our Roman Day. We are really looking forward to all of the exciting activities. The children are invited to come in Roman dress, which was sent out on a recent parentmail. Please feel free to adapt their previous Egyptian outfits, and remember to bring warmer clothes/footwear for break and lunchtime.

I hope you have a great bank holiday weekend and will see you all in your Roman outfits on Tuesday!

What a fantastic performance!

Today’s show was a fantastic success! We are all so proud of how well the children carried out their roles and how well they spoke to their customers. Thank you to all that came. Keep checking the blog and website for more photos. Have a great weekend.
