Nursery challenges happen each week and children have to complete 3 challenges in different areas oer the week. This week children had a painting, writing and ICT challenge. At the end of the week the children with 3 buttons had a fantastic treat after finishing the challenges. They got to play with some superhero figures borrowed from Mrs Iqbal's house and some chose the unicorn and fairy colouring sheets. I wonder what the challenges will be next week...?

Last week we discovered some Dinosaur Eggs in our classroom. We put the eggs in water and waited until they hatched. At first there was a small crack but slowly the crack got bigger until we could see the dinosaurs. Tiddler's dinosaur was green and Spinderella's was orange and yellow. From next week each dinosaur will sit with someone at group time for the day and be responsible for it. How exciting!!

On Friday 14th June we joined in with 'Healthy Lifestyles Day' in Nursery. In the morning we had a Nutritionist called Jack who came from Manchester Fayre and talked about healthy foods and the Eatwell Plate. He then asked Mrs Iqbal to help him make some 'Homous.' We tried it with rice cakes, sugar snap peas and carrots. In the afternoon we had a visit from a dental hygienist who talked about why it is important to clean our teeth every morning and evening. She showed us some photos that had good and bad teeth and shared some great advice; brush your teeth twice a day, go to the dentist for a regular check up and no sugary foods before your tea!

"Ryan used brillant vocabulary to create a spooky atmosphere." Thomas
"Thomas and Daim had brilliant description mixed in with dialogue and action." Paige

Can you believe we have been back in school a week???????? This year is flying by so quickly. Summer 2 is one of my favourite times of the school year as I get to read all about the fantastic things the children have been learning. The teachers are busy writing the children's end of year reports which will be sent home on Friday 19th July.
The children have had class photographs taken this week. We have also had some new photographs taken for the school website, we will let you know when they are on the website.
Year 4 have been practicing hard for the multiplication tables check which they will take this month.
I can't wait till next week when I can see all the amazing pieces of holiday homework, I wonder what fantastic creations the children will come up with this time!

Today, Year 4 have worked hard to investigate how many factors a number has.
Do you know how many factors the number 36 has ?

Spelling in Year 2
Children have five spellings to learn for each week of this half term. Please take time each week to help your child learn their spellings. The impact of learning their spellings can be seen in their reading and writing throughout the curriculum and is so important.
Children will still be tested each Monday on the spellings listed for that week by writing them in dictated sentences.
We appreciate your help with their learning.

To launch our new topic for this half term, "Why is Spain such a popular tourist destination?", we have been busy cooking a classic Spanish dish - patatas bravas!
We all helped make the sauce to go alongside the potatoes, and (almost) all of us thought it was absolutely delicious!
Check out the photos to see what we got up to!

During this half term we were delivered some tiny caterpillars. We looked after the caterpillars and watched them turn in to cocoons and then in to beautiful butterflies. We said goodbye to them and let them free in the garden.

AFTER SATS FUN!
We set the year 6 children a series of maths challenges. They needed to solve the maths clues in teams that were hidden around the room. The clues led them to a 10 digit code that would enable them to escape the room! Thankfully some teams managed this before breaktime! Yikes! Well done Violet, Enoch and Ellie.
Lots of fun - well done Year 6!

Well done Year 6!
The determination and resilience you have shown this week during your SATs has been remarkable. You should be very proud of yourselves!
Have a good rest this weekend and we'll see you all on Monday.

Miss wendt spent some of the Easter holidays in her favourite place - Japan! As a treat for 5HC she brought back some 'unusual flavoured Kit Kats' to try.
Would you eat a green tea Kit Kat? Or a strawberry cheesecake one? What about a tomato flavoured one?!
Date: 3rd May 2019 @ 2:13pm
How many times have you wondered what the inside of a flower looks like? 5HC have! They've been looking very closely at the parts of plants and flowers, and were amazed to learn that plants can be male, female or both!
Have a look at the images below to see our investigations!

Year 5 were set a challenge - they had to invent a game to help other children develop their knowledge of shapes. As you can see from the images there were lots of brilliant examples!
4NS came in to test the games - and they thought they were fabulous!

We would just like to say a huge big thank you to all the parents that came in to school this morning to help us create a minibeast. We understand that it's not always possible for you to come if you have to go to work or you have an appointment, but we love it when you can share in our learning.
Here are lots and lots of photos so you can look at and enjoy the experience we had...

"Look I made a model and did the writing for it!"
Date: 2nd May 2019 @ 4:54pm
"Miss, look these three sounds altogether make the word 'sat' - s a t."
Singing our Phase 2 phonics song can sometimes produce lightbulb moments in our learning.

It's so much fun reading and exploring and observing in our indoor Minibeast Garden.
Date: 2nd May 2019 @ 4:47pm
If you would like to learn more about minibeasts, come in to class to read the information in our science lab, or look at the minibeasts climbing the grass, crawling on the ground and flying about in our Minibeast Garden.
Date: 2nd May 2019 @ 4:41pm
Here are the resources you might want to use to create a minibeast.
Which minibeast will you make? What shape will it be? What colour is it?
This was the challenge that faced our parents and children, this morning in class. Look on our blog to see what we made.

We had an amazing time today exploring The Solar System using Virtual Reality!
Using our own individual headsets, we went on a tour of our Solar System, finding out fascinating facts about the different planets and their moons. It was such a fantastic way of learning about space!
