This term’s curriculum projects are now fully underway. These projects are carefully selected and planned to ensure that our curriculum provision is both broad and balanced and effective in ensuring the best development for our pupils.
Our pupils will receive a parliamentary guide this week. This booklet answers questions such as ‘What is the UK parliament?’, ‘What happens at an election?’ and ‘Why do we need laws?’, as well as providing a wealth of information about the democratic process.
One homework this week will centre around the information and activities within the booklet. We also have a special parliamentary visitor leading assembly next Tuesday on the subject of government.
We have now awarded over 65500 gold stars since September, an average of 128 stars for each pupil! These awards are given in all aspects of school life when our children have successfully progressed within their learning or achieved in any area of school life.
Our Christmas jumper day and bake sale raised £657 for Save The Children UK. Well done to the school council and Miss Sheard for their organisation of the event and many thanks to all those who took part.
Year 3 have been enjoying a fantastic WOW day to start their new topic ‘Tribal Tales’. They have been enjoying a dinosaur show inside the Dino dome among other exciting activities.
Year 4 had a WOW day for their new ‘Misty Mountain Sierra’ topic yesterday. Alongside hearing from a special visitor who had experienced Everest first hand, the children completed an art project and orienteered their way around the school using a scaled map.
We are constantly amazed at the standard of homework that comes into school and were again wowed at the incredible models that are now on display having been created over the Christmas holidays. Year 4 have produced mountains, Year 5 wardrobes inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia and Year 6 Anderson shelters.
