A fantastic start to the Spring term

The SSC class have had a fantastic start to their term. It was super exciting to receive a copy of our class book ‘Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx’ from illustrator and author Joe Todd-Stanton. We are very lucky to have won this prize.

 

We also had a fantastic time on our class trip to Manchester Museum. The class travelled on the tram and the bus to get to the museum. Whilst at the museum, we saw lots of exciting exhibits such as the dinosaurs and the fossils. We are really looking forward to creating our own ‘Ancient Egyptian’ museum this half term.

A busy week for year three

Year three had a busy but fun week last week.  At the start of the week, they performed an assembly to tell their parents all about their topic Ancient Greece.  Towards the end of the week, they had a visit from Yellow Brick Road, who taught them all about their new topic, which is Stone Age to the Iron Age.

Fun at Forest School

What a lovely morning we had at Forest School on Friday. We made clay insects, explored the forest, played with the teddies and masks and role played in the mud kitchen. We were very lucky to have Buddy Bowker join us, he was extremely well behaved and followed the rules. Buddy enjoyed playing with the ball and having running races with the children. We finished our session with a hot chocolate and a biscuit to warm us all up! Thank you Mrs Rowley.

Receptions trip to the Post Office

Last week the Zebras and the Giraffes walked to the Post Office to buy their own stamps and post their New Years resolution that they had written as part of their guided writing. The children waited in the que until it was their turn to buy their stamp. The lady who worked at the Post Office complemented our children and said how well mannered they were, so well done Reception! Also thank you to our grown up helpers!

Toys in Space

Over the last few weeks year 2 have been reading the book Toys in Space by Mini Grey. Some strange things have been appearing during this time and we just can’t work out where they have been coming from. Finally at the end of the week the children have written their own space adventure stories, which are AMAZING! I am very proud of them and can’t wait to put them in our school library, so that everyone can see them.

Year 6 – The Tunnel

Our new book, The Tunnel – by Anthony Browne, explores the relationship between a brother and sister and the adventure they have.

In order for the children to write their own stories based upon The Tunnel, we created a tunnel of their own so they could explore and get inspiration for their writing.
