On Thursdays we go to Chesterton for our swimming lessons. We used go to Jubilee 2. However we had to share the pool with the public users.
In tomorrow’s Big Write, the children will be writing the next chapter of How to Train Your Dragon. I would like the children to discuss what has already happened in the story and what they think could happen next.
During the course of Monday and Tuesday, pupils in Year 5 had the opportunity to participate in 'Bikeability' - a course designed to enable children to be safe when cycling on the roads.
After they had met their instructor Jane, they were shown how to check their bikes (something which they should do every time they use them). They had to check the ABCDs, which stand for:
Air - Check that your tyres feel hard.
Brakes -Make sure both brakes stop the wheels from turning.
Chain - Ensure the chain runs smoothly.
Our new school year
In our Celebrations Assembly today, we were able to begin our new role as School Ambassadors. This involved celebrating the success of the children in our school and giving out our own awards for people who have impressed us this week.
OUR STARS IN AND OUT OF SCHOOL
Today we celebrated the success of Immy Speakman in her flute exam.
This week, across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, we have introduced our new F.U.N Maths (Fluency and Understanding in Number) daily sessions with great success.
This week, as behaviour mentors, we have walked across the school in order to see how poeple were behaving in their lessons and the outcome was amazing! Everyone was working busily, engaged in their learning tasks. All children were concentrating and working hard.
Last week, the children were introduced to the world of Vikings and Dragons! We began our first day back with a Viking themed day, which links nicely to our English lessons where we will be reading the text, How to Train Your Dragon. We began the day with a range of different activities, from making jewellery to designing their own parchment.
