Career Week 5th to 9th March 2018

 

Last week the school all had the opportunity to learn about the world of work. Below you can find out what each class got up to.

Year 2

 

In Year 2, we were lucky to have lots of visitors in class. We met architects, care assistants, shop workers, paramedics and fire-fighters. They told us about their jobs and what skills you need to do their job. We also went on a walk in the local community to speak to people about their jobs. We met a supermarket manager, florist, estate agent, butcher, charity shop worker, pharmacist and postman on our travels. Back in class, we completed a range of challenges linked to jobs including tasks on the class construction sit, creating job adverts and lots of measuring activities. Thank you to everyone that helped during the week, especially parents and grandparents that gave up their free time to speak to the class!

On Tuesday 24th January, the whole school were treated to a performance of Aladdin by M and M Productions.

The classes picked a Christmas hit to sing and the show was closed by the choir with a great rendition of Slade's Christmas hit.  The children looked wonderful in their Christmas themed costumes. Thank you to all that attended and helped at the event.

Newspaper Special Interest Week
Year 2 created pages about food for the school newspaper and also pages about remembrance and poppies. As part of the week, we learned how to interview and edit articles. We looked at breakfasts and how to find out if your breakfast is healthy. We did some research linked to this to help write our article. We played with layouts and headlines to make sure that our page was eye-catching.

YEAR 5 NEWSPAPER WEEK

In Newspapers Special Interest Week, Year 5 looked at newspaper advertising. We had already been studying persuasive writing in English so first we looked at how persuasive techniques could be adapted to adverts.

Next, we made a poster to advertise the Christmas Cracker concert all together and learned lots of ways to use IT to make our posters attractive and eye-catching. This joint effort was to go in the school newspaper. After that, we had a go at making our own adverts.

Once we had mastered the techniques, we all made a poster to advertise the infant nativity called The Bethlehem Star. Mrs Taylor chose her favourite to put in the paper. Charlie was picked. Well done, Charlie!

We also watched a video that showed us how newspapers are made today, largely using computers, and then another video that showed us how they did it before computers. We discussed the differences, advantages and disadvantages.

We made some silhouette pictures using newspaper too.

Year 1

Year 1 have looked at the musical 'The Lion King' to link with their learning on animals. The children wrote recipes for a Minibeast Cafe, learnt about and coloured in Tinga Tinga art and designed and made masks for our performance of 'I Just Can't Wait to Be King' in the Musical Extravaganza. You can see some photographs from the week on our class page. 

 

Year 2

 

In our class we learned about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We did lots of fun activities such as creating our own chocolate bars which we designed wrappers and slogans for, creating lickable wallpaper and learning the song Pure Imagination from the musical. We created a dance to represent the chocolate waterfall and river. Some children played chime bars and glockenspiels to accompany our singing. We ended the week by performing to the rest of the school in a 'Magic of the Musicals' extravaganza! You can see more of what we got up to during the week on our class webpage.

 

 

World Book Day 2017
We had a wonderful World Book Day! As part of the celebrations, each class decorated a door in a book theme. You can see the pictures below. The whole school took part in a writing project, started by Reception and completed by Year 6. Below you can read the whole school story, ' Lucy and the Polar Bears'. Also, the children enjoyed a Harry Potter themed lunch complete with the great hall projected on the wall and music from the film.

A few weeks back each class was given £20. The children had to think of ways to turn this in to a profit. As part of 'Enterprise Week' we held a democratic vote to decide on a charity to donate to. The charity with the majority vote was the Dogs Trust and so we invited the charity in to receive the cheque. The Year 2 councillors presented the charity with a cheque for £260.
