Afternoon Tea – February 2021

Year 5 spent their afternoon amongst the highest of aristocracy at the Savoy Hotel. Virtually anyway! To launch their next English book; Kasper, Prince of Cats by Micheal Morpurgo, they began their lesson by going on a virtual trip through the streets of London, being stunned by the architecture of buildings whilst walking down the Strand. Once they arrived at the Savoy Hotel, a scrumptious Afternoon Tea was awaiting them inside the world-famous Thames Foyer. Children both at home and at school enjoyed delicious scones, cakes, sandwiches and a spot of tea whilst listening to the first chapter. Many brothers, sisters and parents were able to come along for our afternoon at the timeless hotel  too!

Year 2 January 2021

Dear Year 2

We hope very much that you are all safe and well. We want to thank you all again for your ongoing support. We feel incredibly lucky to be working with you all during such a challenging time. We are missing seeing you all face to face – it’s just not the same. However, we are glad to have Google Classroom to keep in touch with you all. Thank you for your patience while we are getting to grips with how it works. Your feedback is most welcomed and will help us to make improvements. You will have noticed that we have been experimenting with new ways of using Google Classroom! 

One thing we are currently trialling is opening up the comments on the “Stream” for a live registration each morning until about 9.30am. Please note this is not compulsory. We know that this time will not be convenient to all of you so there is absolutely no pressure to join in. If you are able to join it would be lovely to “see” you in the comments. It’s a great way to start the day and a good opportunity for us all to say hello to each other, just as we would at school. Please be aware that any comments posted on the stream will be visible to all (unlike those comments you make when you submit assignments which are only visible to teachers). This feature will be monitored closely by the teacher in charge of Google Classroom. We hope to see you there soon!

With very best wishes from Miss Howarth, Miss Corden and Mrs Stoppani.

Year 3 December 2020

Year 3 have enjoyed a really successful term and we are now able to celebrate some of the successes. Several children have already gained their 1st Silver Awards, as a result of their super behaviour in school and their efforts at home in completing reading to an adult at least 3 times, completing at least 30 minutes Maths Whizz and their homework. Now we have some children who have gained their Pen Licences as they have worked really hard to develop neat and increasingly joined handwriting. Congratulations to everyone and thank you to all of you parents and carers for your support too. If we do not see you, have a lovely restful Christmas, stay safe, take care and thank you for everything,

Miss West & Mrs McCaig

Volcanic Eruption – December 2020

There was a volcanic eruption in Year 3 today! We have been learning about volcanoes as part of our work in Geography and so we simulated an eruption for the children to see.If you would like to have a go at home it is not very complicated and the instructions are part of our Year 3 Google Classroom. If you do have a go we would love to see any photos or videos. Good Luck!
