Sport Relief

Friday 23rd March 2018

 

We all donated 50p and came to school dressed in our sports clothes and trainers. We had a great assembly from Mr Wells who told us all about the important work the Sport Relief charity does.

Then we went into the Arena and ran races. Then Miss Byrne and Miss Malik led us for a dance session. It was lots of fun!

Recording a Talking Book

Thursday 15th February 2018

 

Today we worked in groups to make a talking book. We had to think carefully about how we could make different sound effects. Then we needed to decide who was going to read, who was filming with the iPad and who was going to make the sound effects. We had to work well together!

UNICEF Celebration Event

Friday 26th January 2018

 

On Friday we were visited by the local MP Liam Byrne. He had come in to school to see the work we have all been doing about children's rights and No Outsiders.

Six Year 1 children stood on stage to tell him all about the fish we have been making to celebrate how unique and special we are. Mrs Simpson was very proud of them!

Making Moving Pictures

Monday 22nd January 2018

 

As part of our Bright Lights Big City topic, we used a computer program to draw a picture of a type of London transport such as a Tube train, black cab or, red bus. Then we printed it, cut it out and attached it to a strip of card. We made a background for our picture and carefully cut a slit in it. Have a look at some of our work.

Green Lane Masjid

Monday and Tuesday 15th/16th January 2018

 

This week we have been to Green Lane Masjid to find out more about Islam. We were taken on a tour of the mosque and were shown where worshippers wash before praying. Our guide, Umar, told us the history of the mosque. We were amazed to hear that the building used to be a swimming pool! 

Umar showed us where the Imam stands and we even had a go at talking into the microphone.

Friday 12th January 2018

 

For the Engage part of our new topic, we went into the hall for a royal tea party. We learned to sing the National Anthem and then we made our own Union Flag. We got plenty of chance to wave them as we soon had a very special visitor- the Queen!

Today we thought about new year’s resolutions- a promise that people make to themselves at the start of a new year. We thought about things that we could try to improve such as our health, fitness and school work.

Friendship Day

Thursday 11th January 2018

 

The day started with an assembly by Mrs Simpson. She read the story ‘Have You Filled A Bucket Today?’ We fill each other’s imaginary buckets with kind words and actions each day but if we are unkind to someone then we take away from their bucket.

Later we made friendship paper chains and cards amongst many other things.

Home Learning Project for Bright Lights, Big City.

 

Bright Lights, Big City is all about our capital city, London. We will be learning about its famous landmarks, how you travel around, the Great Fire of 1666 and Queen Elizabeth II

 

For the Home Learning project we would like you to either

  • make a fact file for visitors about some of the landmarks such as Buckingham Palace or Big Ben.
  • make a model of one of the landmarks using boxes, tubes, cartons and anything else you want.

 

We think this website might help you as it has lots of interesting facts and great pictures.
