Welcome back to school....it has been lovely to see you all!

We have had a fun week so far, focussing on settling activities.  We have spent time sharing our holiday news.  We have designed new posters for our 'Golden Rules' display.  This morning we talked about our swimming lessons and the rules that we need to follow.  We also designed new peg labels.  We have all spent time in our mainstream class and have enjoyed getting to know our new teachers.

 

Wednesday 24th July 2019

Our last day as a class and with our wonderful y6s! It was certainly emotional but we’ve had lots of fun. We made our own picnic and performed ‘This is Me’ for each other. We were a bit shy on camera but we think it’s worth entering into the talent show!

 

The staff in the IR wish all the children a fantastic summer, they have worked so hard and we are so proud of them! We’ll miss you y6! But know you’ll go on to have an amazing time at your new school. Enjoy the holiday!

More Boccia today! This time we used blindfolds and had to listen really carefully to the bell inside the jack ball to work out where to aim.

This afternoon we worked on he Y6 enterprise project while the rest of us went swimming. It was a great day for working as a team - well done everyone!

What a lovely day!

The toymaker left us instructions to fix his clock and write a diary for him. We described the dolls we made and had a wonderful time in mainstream where between us we took part in Science, music, computing and P4C.

Today we received a surprise! A magic key that opened the door to a Toymaker’s Workshop!

We searched for the right door that the key would fit, then found boxes waiting for us inside! We used the items to make our own toys! A play shop, robots, a car, a train and a dinosaur!

 

The Toymaker was so impressed with our skills he’s gone on holiday! We are now the Toymaker’s apprentices! It’s our job to keep the workshop going until he returns!

It was a very emotional day for us as we said goodbye to Mrs Cantrill who is stepping back from teaching to spend more time with family - and the dogs!

We had a party to celebrate (after a bit of tricky maths work).

We will miss you Mrs Cantrill!

Happy World Book Day! The whole school was buzzing with stories and fantastic costumes: from Fantastic Mr Fox to the Cat in the Hat!

Miss Honey aka Mrs Longbottom was nervous to discover the Trunchball (Mrs Stringer) was in the classroom next door, but we survived the day - even though none of the teacher’s computers were working!

We explored some of our favourite books through sensory play; shared our chosen books with each other; used objects to inspire our own story writing and got to write poetry with a professional poet!

In mainstream, Y6 turned balloons into rockets, Y5 investigated states of matter, Y4 worked with electricity and Y3 are busy rehearsing for their production!
