, Hi Everyone
This is the last ever blog for this school year! The children have chosen a few of their highlights to talk about in assembly this afternoon. I've put them below.
I have said it a lot but we are really are proud of the way that the children have persevered this year in this difficult year. When their grandchildren ask them what they did during the Covid epidemic, they will have many stories to tell of their courage and determination. They are always ready to smile and laugh while they tackle their learning. They have been great role models and inspired each other and us. A huge, huge, thank you for you for everything you have done this year for them and us. It has been an absolute pleasure (although maybe not getting squirted with water) and I know Ms Radbourne will have an amazing year with them this year.
I hope you have a fantastic summer and look forward to seeing the children around school next year.
Here are some of their memories...
This year, we have enjoyed writing adventure stories, learning map skills on the computer, coding using Scratch, singing songs,learning to play the recorder, spending time with the teachers, having our water fight, making rockets, tie dying T-shirts, making puppet mice with Mrs Chauhan, eating apples with honey for Rosh Hashanah, helping out around school and having a fun last day.

PS Best class ever!
I can't believe this is our last Friday. What a year it has been! We are all massively proud of the children for their resilience and good humour throughout this year whether they were learning in school or out.
This week has been as busy as ever. We have been continuing our learning on capacity and weight as well as reading poems. We are picking our favourite ones to perform next week. The children have had a talk from the RNLI about staying safe in the water ready for the summer holidays. With this lovely weather, we are expecting lots of us to be going off to the beach. We have learnt about who the Ancient Greeks were and what life might be like for a family in Ancient Greece.
Next week, we are looking forward to our Nugget Treat on the last day of term. We are going to be having some kind of water fight - more details to follow! We are also going to be trying some Greek food.
We hope you have a fab weekend in the sun.

I hope you are well. We are really looking forward to our Sports Day activities this afternoon. We have already completed some and are looking forward to completing the running races today.
This week, the children have been working hard on writing their own versions of the Oliver and The Seawigs story. They have included a Greek God and Goddess of their own choice and a monster from a Greek myth. We have finished our unit on properties of shapes by looking at 2D and 3D shapes. We have listened to the NSPCC Speak Out, Stay Safe assembly in PSHE and learnt how important it can be to say if we think something is wrong. In Maths today, we are going to be looking at weighing and measuring to start our capacity unit. We have also started to look at what life was like in Ancient Greece.
Next week, we are going to continue with Ancient Greece. We are going to start to read poetry and find out more about measuring and weighing. We are also going to have a special assembly on Monday with the results of Sports Day. On Wednesday, we have another special assembly from the RNLI about staying safe around water.
We hope you have a great weekend.
I hope you are well. It is looking lovely out there.
This week, the children have been having some tests which they have worked extremely hard at and shown some great progress. We have been really proud of their fantastic attitudes and they way in which they have tackled these. They all deserve a massive well done and we have had some extra play! We had a lovely time researching our writing by looking at Greek myths. The children have chosen a Greek God or Goddess (or maybe two) for their story and they have chosen their own monster as well. In maths, we are continuing our learning on shape. In computing, they have started their animation unit by looking at flick books.
Next week, we are starting to look at Sports Day type activities in PE based on throwing, jumping and sprinting. We are going to finish our Greek stories. We are going to finish our geography work about Greece by comparing it to the UK and start to learn more about Ancient Greece.
We hope you have a lovely weekend. Home learning is in their reading folders and a copy is on the Dojo.
