It's so much fun reading and exploring and observing in our indoor Minibeast Garden.

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!

Today year 5 were fortunate enough to visit Space!
We all used virtual reality headsets to explore our Solar System, and learn amazing facts about the different planets around us.
It was very exciting!

Because we are learning about toys in our connected curriculum lessons we were allowed to bring in our toys from home. We had so much fun playing with our toys and sharing them with our friends! We were comparing our toys to toys from the past and thinking about whether our grandparents would have played with these toys.

Only 2 days to go until our Marvellous Minibeast Morning Job. We'd love it if you could come in to help us create minibeasts!
Date: 30th Apr 2019 @ 8:23pm
Today we became real scientists by filling in mini-beast observation forms. We used observation skills by looking carefully at photos of minibeasts, by counting how many legs and wings and then writing about the colour of the minibeasts.
Then, at the end of the day, we shared our knowledge with each other by reading out the questions on the form and the answers we had written. As you can see we are very proud of our work!

This week Year 1 have been learning about the names of old and new toys by pretending to buy and sell them in our very own shop.

Can you guess what we are making today?
We decided to create a learning area in our classroom because it wasn't how we wanted it to look. We are really interested in minibeasts so we are going to create an area that we can learn about them in. The first step is to create the kind of habitat we think they need to live in.
What do you think the box will become?

This afternoonn we played a game of Who? Where? How?
First you play a sound and then you close your eyes and imagine who is making the sound, where they are and how they are making the sound.
Can you guess our sound?

Today our classroom challenges were to use our measuring skills.
We used the balance scales to find out about lighter and heavier objects, we compared the length of the 'green water snake' with our models and we created towers that were shorter or taller than Ruby Rabbit.

Today Lainy brought some fun games in to class to play with. We've been creating maths games using her ladybird resources.

As part of our topic about plants we have created collages of flowers. We used paint to create the background and magazines to the create the flower itself. Take a look at some of the collages we created.

We have been learning all about transport this term. For holiday homework we would like the children to make something linked with transport. You can be as creative as you would like!
Some potential ideas:
Make a new type of transport
Make an information poster about a type of transport
Use junk modelling to make a form of transport
Research an old type of transport and compare it to transport today
Write a story about a time of transport
Tell us about a time that you used a type of transport
We can’t wait to see what you create!

What a busy week we have had!
On Tuesday we had the Easter Bonnet Parade and the Easter Craft Competition, it was lovely to see so many parents coming to support the events. I haven't forgotten that we said we would do an Easter Bonnet Parade for parents next year!
As part of there Connected Curriculum topic the children in Y4 organised a cake sale to raise money for Water Aid and Y5 organised an art auction to raise money for Refugee Action.
Today we had three assemblies to celebrate outstanding attendance. Any child who had 98% attendance or above presented their grownup with a certificate to say thank you for getting them to school every day.
I can't believe we are nearly in the Summer term, this year is flying by.
Have a lovely Easter and we will see you all on 23rd April.

For our Roman experience, we were lucky enough to meet 2 Roman soldiers! We found out what Roman soldiers and Celtic warriors wore and we got the chance to try on some Roman armour. It was really heavy! One of them even led us into battle and taught us different battle formations! It was a battle between the boys and girls. Girls were not allowed to join the Roman army but the girls at Ravensbury won!

On Tuesday, we held an Art Exhibition to raise money for Refugee Action by selling framed prints of our Greek landscapes artwork, inspired by Nikolas Georgoudakis. As part of our study of Greece, we found out that many refugees go to Greece in order to find safety from their own countries where they may experience war or religious persecution. We watched some CBBC Newsround interviews with two boys who are refugees in Greece and found out a bit about their story. We thought it would be a brilliant idea to try and help refugees who are finding safety in Manchester by raising money for this charity.
We managed to raise a grand total of...
*** £231.12 ***
At the beginning of the Summer Term, we will have a representative from Refugee Action visit the school to meet the children and collect the donation.
Thank you SO MUCH for your support in helping us raise money for this brilliant charity.

Did you know about Nursery challenges?
Each week children are given three challenges in various areas around the classroom that they must complete independently. When each challenge is completed the children place a coloured button on their photo. When three buttons are placed the children get a treat on Friday afternoons. This week the treat children chose was to make some chocolate krispy nests. Have a look at the 'My Learning at home' sheet which gives you details of what will be provided in each area in the nursery.

In Nursery we have been preparing our Easter Bonnets to wear at our Easter celebration next Tuesday. We used a paper plate bunny ear design and used our 'Talking Fingers' to scrunch tissue paper and decorate our hats. Don't forget to come and see our Easter celebrations on Tuesday 2nd April at 9.15am in the hall.

We have been learning all about our amazing Mums this week. Mother's Day is a chance for us to show them how special they are.
First we read a book called 'Superhero Mum' by Tim Knapman and that made us think about all the brilliant things our Mums do for us every day. Then we wrote about why our own Mum is a Superhero with Mrs Ganner. Finally we made a garden of flowers picture independently.
This got us thinking... How can we make a bunch of flowers for our Mum? Superhero Miss Conway came to the rescue by showing us how to use our scissor skills and fine motor folding skills to create a very real looking, opening heart flower,growing in grass. We are so creative in our class that some of us made more flowers independently too! There was even a ladybird sitting in one bunch!
We hope all of you amazing Mums out there have a restful day on Sunday. You really deserve it.

We have been reading The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The goats went 'Trip trap, trip, trap over the wooden bridge...' Out popped the Troll and growled 'Who's that trip, trapping over my bridge...'
