From all of the Year 1 team.


Year 4 weekly update

Exciting, ship-shape, snowy- why don’t you have a look at what we’ve been up to this week?

We have been building Tudor houses, with all the features that we’ve learnt.

Firstly, we cut out the net of each part of the building. After that, there was a lot of gluing and folding involved. Finally, we made our houses and added beams, windows, chimneys, roof tiles, dates and extra details.

I’m sure you’ll agree we’ve built some amazing houses!

 


Workhouse Letters of Complaint

The sinning little children in Year 5 think that they are too good for the workhouse! They think they deserve better food, more respect and warmer clothes.

Thinking about coordinating and subordinating conjunctions, adverbial openings, subordinate clauses and how to PEE, the children have written letters of complaint.

Manor Lodge

On Friday, Year 4 visited manor Lodge.

It was a brilliant day of learning- we met Bess of Hardwick, dressed as rich and poor Tudors, learnt about what they ate, how to treat illnesses like a true Tudor and had a go at writing with a quill!

Children made a pomander to keep away the plague, created inventories of rich and poor houses and did a brilliant job of showing off their knowledge to our teachers, Rachael and Mrs Rogers.

Rock Night

Friday 17th November saw another PTA event which will go down in history and for all the right reasons….Rock Night Returned.

During the assembly the well rehearsed band ‘Totley Crue’ shared a taster session with the kids during the Children In Need Rock themed day and it went down a storm.

The evening was the main event with over 20 Rock Anthems being shared with an energetic audience of over 130. Once again some big named tunes were played such as ‘You Really Got me’, ‘Sweet Child O’Mine’ ‘Paranoid’ and ‘Teenage Dirtbag’. It was all brilliant! Mrs W and Mr P took centre stage after the interval and gave a fantastic rendition of ‘Chasing Cars’ and ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’.

Months of rehearsing and dedication from those involved certainly made this another night to remember, with over £1000 raised for the PTA fund.

Well done and thanks again!
