Readers – Autumn 2 2019

A brilliant well done to our Green and Gold Readers for this half term. These children have handed in their reading record every week during the half term.

Reading is so important and should be done for at least 10 minutes every day. Any tips or advice, please see Miss Varley.

Remember reading records need to be handed in every Tuesday to Miss Varley.

  • 3-4 reads per week will get you a sticker
  • 5+ reads per week will get you a gold star sticker

Will you be a green or a gold reader for Spring 1 2020?

Gymnastics – Autumn 2 2019

During Autumn 2, we looked at gymnastics in PE.

First we looked at the different shapes you could make in gymnastics.

We learnt that you could use these shapes when you perform different movements in PE. We also learnt how to make the star, dish, arch and straight shapes.

We used the apparatus to learn how to jump correctly.

  • Feet slightly apart
  • Knees slightly bent
  • Look where you want to jump
  • Land on two feet
  • Stand up

Can you guess which shapes we were making in the air?

Christmas 2019

Christmas is such a busy time of year at school and this year has been no exception.

We kicked off our celebrations with our annual FS and KS1 Christmas workshop. It was fabulous to see so many parents and carers coming to join in with us and get into the festive spirit. Thank you to everybody who came.

Next we were treated to a special performance of Aladdin after one of our brilliant Y6 children won a competition. We loved Aladdin!

Then it was time for us to put on a performance of our own in our nativity.

In the midst of all of the performances, we got busy with some Christmas crafts and activities. Our first job was to create a puppet and we used our sewing skills to sew the two pieces of materials together.

We love our finished designs, what do you think?

We set to work to make Christmas cards for our loved ones.

Our final activity was to create a calendar for 2020.

Before we broke up for the holidays, we had time for a Christmas party and disco!

A special visitor even had the time to pop into school and say hello!

We would like to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

See you back at school on Monday 6th January 2020.

Healthy Living Week 2019

This half term, our focus has been on Healthy Living.

Did you know that there are lots of different ways to live a healthy lifestyle?

  • Be physically active every day
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Brush your teeth at least once a day
  • Visit a dentist regularly
  • Drink lots of water
  • Get at least 8 hours sleep a night
  • Look after your mental health and well-being

In school, we have been completing lots of different activities to help us to do this.

We kicked off the week Active Mission and Errol and had 3 minutes on each activity. It certainly got our hearts racing by the end!

Dr. Hobbs came into to do an assembly for us on how to live a healthy lifestyle too!

Our activity was with the St. John’s ambulance team and they taught us how to make an emergency phone call.

Mrs Murch taught us about PANTS and we had fun with Pantosaurus.

P – Privates are private

A – Always remember your body belongs to you

N – No means no!

T – Talk about secrets that upset you or make you feel uncomfortable

S – Speak up, someone can help.

If you would like more information about PANTS and the Underwear Rule from the NSPCC, click here.

We finished off the week with some yoga to relax and chill out.
