Heatree 2017

 

The children in year 5 and 6 have visited Heatree for their residential. We have had lots of fun climbing high on the high ropes, kayaking around a lake, swimming in a mud bog and mountain biking on different terrains.

 

Come and have a look at what we have been up to!

An Egg-cellent end to the term!

 

We decorated hard-boiled eggs and rolled them down the playground, in line with the tradition of rolling decorated eggs down grassy hills, which goes back hundreds of years and is known as "pace-egging", from the Old English Pasch meaning Pesach or Passover.

On Friday 10th March  the whole school visited the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth. It was a fun day, packed full of opportunities to learn about the marine life around Britain, and across the world's oceans.

Our favourite facts included:

  • Jellyfish have no brains.
  • Sharkskin is made of tiny teeth called denticles; this helps them to move smoothly through the water.
  • Octopuses squirt ink to create a shape called a pseudomorph, which confuses predators.
  • Most lobsters are blue.
STONE AGE AFTERNOON

On Thursday 12th January Alric Bennet came in to show us some Stone Age artefacts.

We learned how the Stone Age people might have made their tools and weapons. Archaeologists and historians have worked out how the tools were made and used by looking at the marks and shapes of the stones.

We were astonished to learn that, in Stone Age times, there were hippos living in the London Area. You can see the massive hippo tooth in the photos.

Year 4 Shadow Puppet Show
Year 4 spent the second half of the Autumn Term creating, writing, and practising a shadow puppet show. After voting to use Luiza's script for the show, Year 4 made all the puppets and the scenery. We performed the show, once to the parents and once to the whole school. - Mary Hayes said - What a fantastic show. It looked so professional!

Well done to Class 3 who presented a very moving Remembrance Day assembly on Friday morning. The assembly included a song called 'Remember' sung by the choir, the poem 'The Fallen' written by John McCrae read by the Ethos group and all of the children from Year 4, 5 and 6 contributing to make it a memorable occasion. Our thanks to Gordon McCormack who said the Exhortation and Reverend Ruth who gave the blessing.

Autumn Term 2016

 

A very warm welcome from the children and Staff in Class 3. We have had a very exciting start to the term learning about our topic, Light and Sound and linking it to Science and History. The children have been learning about how light travels in a straight line, how artists such as Kandinsky use sound and about famous inventors from Victorian times such as Thomas Edison.

 

In English we have been reading Street Child, this again links to our topic of Light and Sound as it is set in Victorian times. We continue to learn lots of new grammar skills that we can use in our writing to make it more exciting and engaging for a reader. As well as pursuing our excellence in Maths and Reasoning.

 

Keep coming back to see what else we get up to in Class 3

On Friday, Year 6 went on a Life Skills course. Below are some of our experiences
