Friday Celebration Assembly

Every Friday at 1.30pm we will hold our usual Friday Celebration Assembly using Teams - parents have been sent a link via Parentmail. This will give us a moment to come together to say 'well done' to some children who have shown some particularly strong learning behaviours this week as part of their remote learning. They could have been particularly independent, solved problems, shown great resilience, been patient, approached things in a more positive way, thought carefully, tried to use what they already know, persevered, made links between learning or thought about the best way to learn.


If you were celebrated today, you can print off you certificate here:

Friday 5 March

Class 4 - Well done to everyone this week for you continued efforts, nobody has slowed down in this last week. Hayden, Bobby and Lars produced some particularly good diary entries imagining they had found a fossil. Kamma, Charlotte and George also produced some particularly lovely work.

Class 3 - Seb, Eliza, Louie and Rosie Cripps worked particularly well in their science investigations this week. Lots of children had a go at the cake making - Freddie, Ronnie, Alice, Rosie Moore, Finley, Lewis and Sienna all decorated particularly well. Well done to Elsie, Indie and Fletcher for their Ghana posters. Finally, Caitlin, Antoine and Connor have shown some great learning behaviours this week.

Class 2 - Well done to everyone who had a go at making a drum to use in your live google classroom music session - Honour, Nicole, Leila and Violet all did particularly well. Well done too to Felicity and Monty for some of the extra learning they have done.

Class 1 - Lots of children joined in the World Book Day activities. Well done to Grace, Phoenix, Betsy, Lily Smith, Theo and Jacob for some particularly lovely activities this week.

Friday 26 February

Class 4: Mrs Soley set an art challenge to draw a fossil and then turn this into a puzzle - Kamma's was particularly effective. Everyone's recount writing was really good - all of Class 4 had to think carefully how to use engaging language because they couldn't write about exciting events - well done to everyone!

Class 3: Class 3 have started a topic around 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. The children had to present a news report of the finding of a golden ticket and so many filmed themselves behind a desk, being a TV reporter. Louie, Lewis, George, Rosie, Alice and Finlay all did extremely well. A well done to Freddie and Ronnie too who have done some great work this week.

Class 2: Year 1 children have worked particularly well on some writing, based on the traditional tale 'Jack and The Beanstalk', especially Paige, Zain, Emi, Flo, Jack and Nicole. In Maths, Jack, Monty and Leila have worked particularly hard to understand telling the time.

Class 1: Class 1 have been exploring the Three Little Pigs story and created story maps and puppet shows to understand the events. Well done to Theo, Zoe, Jonny, Riley, Sophie and Phoenix. Mrs Miller was also very impressed with the 'marble' pictures using shaving foam in the week!

Friday 12 February

We did our first celebration assembly using Google Classroom today - it was lovely to be able to see everyone's faces and to show everyone giving a clap as well!

Class 4: Class 4 have been writing some Mayan Myths and all have send back some fabulous pieces of work - well done to everyone! In addition, Mrs Soley's chocolate bar designs, linked to the Mayan folk tails, were really well presented - Lars, Maddox and Louis gave theirs particular thought.

Class 3: All week, class 3 children have been finding out aspects of Roman life. They spend some time independently researching topics of interest, such as food & drink, buildings and roads. They presented their findings in different forms - models, powerpoints, posters etc and presented them to each other in google classroom. Well done to everyone for such fabulous work!

Class 2: In RE, children had been exploring a story of 'The Lost Son' - Monty, Violet, Hector, Esther and Hug gave theirs particular thought. They had also been producing story maps to help understand the events within the 'Jack and the Beanstalk' traditional tale - well done to Leila, Eva, Monty, Zain, Violet and George Ruddock who included some lovely details.

Class 1: During such a cold week, the children have been exploring ice and been surprised how some of the ice shapes they made haven't melted at all! They have also been learning about nocturnal animals and Jacob and Lily B have done loads of work about them at home.

Friday 5 February

This week we explored some of the great remote learning pieces of work that children have worked hard on this week and return to their teacher.We celebrated:

Class 4: Class 4 have been learning about the Ancient Mayans and in RE were trying to think how a Mayan might have done by writing 'prayers' to a god. Yasmin, Austen and Louis worked particularly hard on this.  They have also produced comic strips to complete the ending of the 'Dragon Dilemma' story and everyone did really well in keeping the main aspects of the story.

Class 3: Class 3 are learning about the Romans this term and have spend some time developing mosaic designs. This week they have started to create a final piece of artwork and Rosie C, Indie, Siena, Louie, Fletcher, Caitlin and Ella all worked really hard on this. They also made some Roman temples and Rufus, Finley and Lewis were particularly creative with theirs.

Class 2: As part of their 'Traditional Tales' topic they have been re-telling and writing their own versions of 'Hansel and Gretel'. Hector, Joseph G and Violet all sent back their versions where they had worked hard to edit and improve their first piece. Paige, Zain and George Ruddock also worked hard to complete their writing.

Class 1: Class 1 have started writing their own sentences and were preparing sentences that start with 'I can...'. India, Phoenix, Grace, Theo, Lily S and Betsy sent back some pictures that showed their sentence. They have also produced some fabulous Owl paintings this week too.
