Fun in the Sun

Last week, year five made the most of the good weather and ventured up to the cricket field for their PE lesson. After a good warm up and a game of duck, duck, goose, they practised some football skills and played a few matches. They ended with a jog around the cricket field!

Easteringle Service

Yesterday, we all celebrated Easter in church and it was an amazing service.

The children behaved impeccably, sang beautifully and the readers were loud and clear.

Here are some pictures that show what the children made in class for the service.

Thank you to everyone who was involved.

Year 5 – Tatton Park Trip

On Wednesday 27th March, Year 5 visited Tatton Park as part of their Topic work. This visit highlighted facts about WW2 and the children were able to link the trip with their learning.

During this trip, the children were able to visit a house which was for evacuees in WW2. The furniture and features of the house were exactly the same so the children felt very privileged to be part of ‘history.’

They were also given a tour of the farm and the daily activities that the evacuees were meant to do. They got the opportunity to complete some of these activities.

It was a nice trip to finish off the World War Two topic. The children and the staff really enjoyed themselves.

A card for ‘Someone Special’

On Thursday 28th March, year 5 decided to create cards for someone special in their lives. Quite a few of them created cards for their parents, however, some of them decided to create ‘Thank you’ cards and ‘Welcome back’ cards for their loved ones.

Internet Safety

On Friday, year five and six were visited by two ladies who came to discuss internet safety. They explained about the age limits on various websites, what dangers to look out for and what to do if you do not feel safe.

What did you learn?

Year 5 – Spring 2

Welcome back year five, and welcome back Miss Shahbaz. This half term our topic is WWII and we will be going on a trip to Tatton Park to learn about what life was like for evacuees during the war.

If you would like to complete some extra homework, please visit Education City where I have created some new ‘My Cities’ for you to have a go at. You can also have another go at the older ‘My Cities’ as it is always good to revisit previous work. TT Rockstars is another great website and app where you can practice your times tables.

This term we are learning:

  • Maths –  Fractions, Decimals and Percentages
  • English – Portal Stories and Explanation Texts
  • Topic – WWII
  • Science – Animals including Humans

Year 4 Photos – Spring 1

We have been very busy this half term! Here are some photos to prove it!!

In Maths, we have been learning about angles, symmetry, perimeter and properties of 2D shapes.In Science, the rice experiment taught us that vibrations create sound and we investigated how to make a low and high pitched sound with various instruments.

In English, we learnt a Polish legend about a clever cobbler who defeated a terrible dragon and a rhythm and rap poem about an iguana. In RE, we learnt how Hindus worship at home and in a Mandir and created a Hindu shine in our classroom. In French, we learn to name the parts of the body and what to say at the doctor’s. We also took part in a fantastic workshop on the Ancient Egyptian mummies!

Well done, Year 4!
