Book Exchange returns next week! Years 4-6 will be in Monday afternoon and EYFS up to Year 3 will be on Wednesday. Children need to bring in a book, leave it in their bag and then when called they will have the chance to go to the dining room and exchange for a new one! Simple!
Here is a great example of Andy Goldsworthy style art that the children did with Miss Benn on the KS2 field! I’m sure you will agree it is beautiful!
Don’t forget to send in all of your books that have been read for the exchange! We are in need of some Year 3/4 level books to any upper KS2 children, have a look at what you have! We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
Here are the winners for KS1, Years 3/4 and Years 5/6. Daisy from Beech was the EYFS winner. Well done to everyone for a great effort with this homework, as a whole staff we were very impressed!
The scene is set! We are ready to take delivery of our book fair on Monday! We will be open straight after school all week. Monday will be in Larch Class and then in the hall for the remainder of the week. Come and support us, keep your children reading and help raise funds for our school library!
On Friday, year 4 had a superb, thrilling Science day. After an amazing assembly with Dr Bridges, who made her hair stand on end (!); the children experimented. They mixed soda and vinegar; mentoes and cola; and conducted magic with milk. The best activity of the day was creating bubble snakes.
Last Friday , Y4 went to Oaklands College for the Sports Partnership County Finals. We had beaten 20 school teams from the local and partnership finals to get there. A massive achievement in the first place!! Well done Maya, Marli, Mia, Alice, Zoe, Aidan, Austin, Charlie, Jon and Max!
We were super excited and nervous to take part, there were 9 other teams, who had all beaten 20 school teams as well, all competing for the Tri – Golf Trophy! We had a lovely day and worked really hard in the first half ……. so well that we were in the lead!
So we were very excited and more nervous….. even the adults! We played as hard as we could congratulating each other at every shot. The scorers were so impressed with us they gave us a Team work baton! We were very proud.
Out of the 9 teams, we came 3rd!! WE CAME 3rd!! AMAZING! Well done Y4 tri – golf team. We are very proud. We will display the teamwork baton and certificate on the sports board in September!
In June, Oak class had an exciting opportunity to investigate light in a workshop….We made Kaleidoscopes, used periscopes, made shadow puppets and discovered how our pupils react to a change in light. Great stuff.
10 members of the netball team went to Abbots Langley to take part in a friendly netball tournament. First we played Divine Saviour and Tanners won 8-7. It was fabulous to see how the ball went from end to end and both teams had great set pieces.
Next, we played Abbots and we dominated most of the match again with great set play from Erin, Marli, Ciara and Tia. Ciara’s shooting greatly improved as every time she shot, she scored! Well done Tanners for great team work. We look forward to the netball league in the Autumn Term, a great team developing.
On Wednesday, Oak class we’re lucky enough to have the chance to experience virtual reality headsets. As a class we travelled to Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, the Great Wall of China and Paris. It was very exciting, particularly finding ourselves in the middle of a gladiator fight!
