Spellings for this week

Home Learning Week 5 Timetable - it is hard to believe that another week has passed! I have enjoyed the emails I have received this week. I couldn't believe how many of my class were wizards with paper! Who knew that Kite class could actually walk through a piece of A4? Mind-blowing stuff! Another successful week. Well done Kite class for all your hard work. Miss Chandler.

Home Learning Week 4 - what a great start to the week. I have received lots of eye-catching emails today full of dragons, potions and rainbows. What more could I want? Well, hopefully some more tomorrow!

We spent the afternoon colour mixing for our Roman mosaics!

Engineering Morning: What an exciting and interesting morning we have had! The children were engineers and had to design some inventions which would solve various problems which 'grumpy grown-ups' always complain about. The children's ideas were amazing. We had a speedy scooter, robots which could cook or clean for you, a supermarket app, a sun cream tablet, a word scanner, a helpful shopping trolley, a device to help the elderly remember things, a bag with extendable arms, a heated seat for your sofa, a device to help you wake up in the mornings and even an impressive drone car (to name but a few). I was blown away by the children's efforts today. Fingers crossed for when the results are released. We'll keep you posted on that! Special thanks to Mrs Gibson for taking the time to talk to us about her job as an engineer. It really was fascinating to listen to her and also lovely to watch her enthusiasm for her area of work. Thank you again!

Shadow Investigations: The children have been designing and carrying out their own investigations. They have been thinking of various questions about making shadows and these are a few pictures of them during their experiments.

A note from Mrs Mooney (just in case you didn't get a letter on Monday):

 

Parents/Carers,

In preparation for engineering morning next Tuesday, we are asking your child to come to school with an idea of a product they would like to invent and make. There are no rules for this and the best ideas always come from children as their imaginations are endless and have no practical limitations. If you could please encourage your child to come up with an idea of something to invent and draw a picture of it. The best ideas come from a problem, so the children have been asked to think of all the things that they observe or hear 'grumpy grown-ups' complaining about. Once they find a problem - can they think of an invention to solve the problem? It doesn't matter if you think it is not possible. The only things to avoid are things that already exist, so if your child comes up with something that already exists, can you encourage them to tweak their idea.

Thank you in advance.

Mrs Mooney.

Homework 07.02.20. Please find the homework attached. We would encourage the children to continue to revise the x7, x8 and x9 times tables again for this week. There are a couple of things to remember for the coming week: every child needs to bring in their reading book and purple reading record on Monday and it is engineering morning on Tuesday so ensure your child has an idea in mind ready!

Kite Class are going to be doing Science tomorrow so please could you have your torches ready to bring in again. Thank you. smiley

Well done for those children who have finished their homework project. You have obviously been working hard at home to researching Roman landmarks. If you haven't done so already, please bring in your project! Thank you.

SCHOOL GAMES EVENT: INTRAHOUSE FOOTBALL. To celebrate National Football Week, we played some intrahouse games this afternoon. Year 2 even joined in the fun for a bit! Well done to Cole house who were the overall winners!
