Hello and welcome to Year 5’s shiny new class blog!
Today Coach Will joined us from AFC Wimbledon to start a 12 week training course! We played lots of games to practise dodging and running sideways and backwards. We can’t wait for next week!
On Fridays, our parents can join us for our Free Reading time! We had so much fun on Friday and can’t wait to see more of you next week!
We have had an amazing first week in Year 1.
We have made super rockets and alien homes and have had a great time getting to know each other.
Here is our topic map so you can see all of the wonderful things we will be learning in Autumn 1 🙂
Welcome to Year 2!
We have had a busy two weeks in Year 2, we have started our new topic on Superheroes, we read The Enormous Crocodile to celebrate Roald Dahl’s birthday and we have been practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s in Maths! Here are some photos of us today on a materials hunt, we found lots of objects made from the same materials.
At the recent Father’s day service at St Anne’s church, some members of the choir bravely gave up their Sunday morning lie-in and sang for the delighted congregation.
They performed, ‘One more step’ and ‘I wish I knew how’ finishing with Dante, Amea and Jasmine from Year 6 singing their own Father’s Day song. It was the first time a cartwheel had been seen in the church during a service and it was warmly received despite an initial look of surprise from Father Gordon. Everybody received a very appreciative round of applause and were welcomed back to sing as soon as possible. Father Gordon finished the service by generously giving refreshments to the children to distribute to their thirsty fathers. The choir stayed cool despite the high temperatures and remained the true professionals that they are.
Thank you to Daniel, Siya, Wronika, Ashley, Lincoln, Kimberley, Jasmine, Amea, Dante and Sapphire.
Year 4 have finally finished publishing their Jungle Book tales. We will all have our own version of The Jungle Book to take home and read to our families! Here are the openings of Ayat’s and Mikayla’s.
Year 4 solved a problem today involving symmetry. Using 8 beads, 4 of one colour and 4 of another, we found as many symmetrical necklaces as we could. We thought about how to present our findings and if we could make necklaces using a different number of beads and which numbers would work best for this.
Last Friday, Year 4 visited London Zoo. We took part in a Rainforest Explorer workshop where we had to spot different rainforest animals and had a special thermometer to measure temperature and humidity. We even stroked a Madagascan hissing cockroach!
Afterwards, we had the chance to look around the zoo. We especially enjoyed Tiger Territory, Land of the Lions, Penguin Beach and the scariest part…In with the Spiders!
This afternoon, Year 4 are busy making our banner for our sponsored walk to raise money for all those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire
After a hot playtime, we spent some time in the library reading a range of different books to help us relax and cool down!
