Happy weekend children, what a lovely sunny week we have had!  This week has been really eventful with a visit from Mr Timby on Thursday morning;  where we learned all about the second poorest country in the world - Burkina Faso. We were able to try on authentic African Clothing and see amazing toys made by children from recycled materials. (See photographs below).

We also celebrated the fact that we raised the most money as a class for the 'Make A Splash Campaign' for CAFOD during Lent. We made the most of the wonderful weather by having a picnic and play at Coronation Park, Luke's mum arrived with ice lollies for us all - so a big thank you to her!! (See photos below).

Congratulations this week went to Jaydan for his super adventure story that was packed with fronted adverbials and direct speech!

Thomas received our Academy Mission Award for completing his work so readily and happily over the last few weeks, we're all incredibly proud of him!

Leya received the Good Work Award for her determination and wonderful effort in completing all of her work and proof reading to improve punctuation!  Well done Leya!

Gracie was given the Maths Makes Sense Award by Miss Blackburn for her super skills at working out percentages and Sophie received Mr Dosh's Academy Mission Award for her thoughtful contributions towards their collective worship session.

Well done to everyone for a super afternoon at the park and great work this week too!

Have a lovely warm weekend and enjoy the sunshine!

See you all on Monday

Hello and happy LONG weekend children!  You certainly do deserve a rest this weekend, as you've all been working your socks off this week.  Our art work is really coming on well and you've worked skilfully in the style of Monet to produce landscapes to accompany our African sunsets.  The classroom looks wonderful with all of your masterpieces displayed!  Big writing was also great today with some super-exciting stories about our trips 'Mary Poppins style' into pavement pictures; I've loved reading them!

Special congratulations this week go to Chloe and Jaydan initially, as they were awarded the Mathematician awards this week by their maths teachers  - well done guys, seems like I'm not the only one you've been impressing this week!

Max P has been spotted by 4 members of staff this week, showing us what a wonderful young man he is!  So kind and caring towards other children in our class, what a super star!!!  Max was awarded the Academy Mission Award - top job Max!

Lilia's story today was amazing. Packed with fronted adverbials and with two whole pages of really imaginative ideas to read, it was a real treat!  Keep it up Lilia!  You certainly deserved the Star Writer Award.

Anyway children, have a great weekend, see you all on Tuesday!

Cheerio, Mrs K. no

The Music teachers working with your children have asked if we could share this track with you! They thought it would be great to listen to; therefore your children can get used to the melody and beat and can even practice to it!

This week was our first full week back to school in 2016 and we started it with a fantastic visit up to church, where you were all able to explore the building and produce some amazing sketches of objects and areas in the church.  On returning to school we used water colour pencils and paints to add detail to our sketches. They look amazing children!  Well done!

It was incredibly hard to choose, as you all worked so hard, but Gabriel, Alexa and Edie received Good Work Awards for their works of art; which were detailed, intricate and showed a super use of colour. 

Grace was spotted this week by Mr Ward for her super numeracy work and for this reason, she received our Maths Makes Sense Award - well done Grace!

We also wrote stories about a Roman soldier and his encounter with a bear in the forest.  Max's ideas for his story were original and very entertaining and won him the Star Writer Award. Mason's opening paragraph for his story was fantastic and sounded like a film trailer, he was one of our Star Writers too! Very well done boys!

Luke really impressed Mrs D'Sa with his swimming this week and became our first Sportsperson of the week for 2016!  Well done Luke!

Ho, Ho, Ho and a very merry Christmas to you all!  Congratulations go to us all today as we've successfully completed our first whole term together; and what a fabulous one it has been. Our shelters in DT were all expertly made and thankfully, Reggie and Bollie remained unharmed!

We've had a great day today, your singing in Mass this morning was beautiful. You continued in good voice when we were singing for Santa this afternoon too!

This evening, I posted our entries for the Nation's Decorations to CBBC, so keep your eyes peeled over the Christmas holidays for any of our artwork being shown live on TV by Hacker or Dodge!

We look forward to our new topic after Christmas all about the Romans.  There is a copy of the homework sheet below where you can record your research, or to use as a guide if you are presenting your work in an other way.

Feel free to have a look at our photos of Christmas party day and our Nation's Decorations entries, they follow this blog.


Mrs Mucha, Mrs Giddens and myself, wish you all an absolutely wonderful Christmas, we hope Santa is generous and remember that little prayer or thought for Jesus on his birthday!

Happy Christmas

Love Mrs K :)

Check out these photos to see what we mean!
