School Council

Why do we have a School's Council?

 The School’s Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupil and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views of all the other pupils they represent.

Selection Process

At the beginning of each school year each class will discuss the role of the School Councillor and will agree on a set of criteria that the ideal candidate should try and meet, eg: confident to talk in front of others. Any children who are interested in taking on this role then have the opportunity to prepare and present a short pitch to their class explaining why they would make a good Class Council representative. The rest of the class then vote for the person they feel is most suitable for the role. We ask the children to be considerate of each other; if they have had the opportunity to take on this role before then they allow others to also have the opportunity.

Message from your teacher - Week Beginning 30th April 2020

Hello Everyone. I hope this message finds you all well and hope that you have been able to enjoy the lovely, sunny weather we have had this week. We were sad to have to say our goodbyes so suddenly last week and wish all of our children and families best wishes during this difficult time. The Nursery staff are missing you all but we are also excited to keep in touch with you and find out how have been learning at home. We have already enjoyed watching videos of you singing, counting and painting and other fun activities. Don't forget to add any videos or photos to the ILD for us to see. We will endeavour to send you a message back. Use the portal below to upload you pictures, videos and comments:

https://portal.interactivelearningdiary.co.uk/

 

 

On Monday and Tuesday, Miss Morgan worked in the Nursery with a number of Nursery and Reception children whose parents and carers need to go to work. We made some bubbly water and role played being firemen with pretend hoses and water squirters! We even made a car wash and scrubbed and cleaned the bikes in the sunshine. We also painted some colourful rainbows for the children to display in their windows at home. Maybe you could do that too. Miss Morgan also planted a sunflower seed and has been carefully watering it each day. Look how much it has grown! There were 3 little shoots stretching up towards the sun when she checked this morning! I wonder how tall your sunflower is? Send us some photos on the ILD. We would love to see them.

 Hello everyone!

I hope you are all well and have been keeping busy. It is lovely to see lots of observations being uploaded onto the ILD. Take a look at some of the amazing home learning below!

 

We’ve decided we’re going to grow some veg. Jude (and Seb) helped their Daddy build the raised beds. Jude helped to measure the wood using a tape measure and then helped Daddy to drill the wood. Next job for tomorrow....seed planting!

Freddie has some special pens that can write on glass he drew a lovely picture and wrote his name. He had a lot of fun

We made some rainbows for our window. We like to go for a short daily walk and count the rainbows we can see in other people’s windows.  Eleanor also made a banana cake and it was delicious. She has done lots of counting and enjoyed using the pasta and playdoh. We had fun with google putting animals in our home. Eleanor has been a great Gardener planting seeds and she loved her big curly hair after mummy gave her plaits at the ‘hair salon’ 27/03/20

 

We have started an Around the World project. Hazel chose Italy and we found it on the map. She made a poster with an Italian flag, Italian food and some Italian words.

Ezra has enjoyed learning about shapes and playing with them in different ways the last couple of days. He made the 2 pictures (a man and a stegosaurus) using some shape stamps I bought a while ago. Before we used them we named each shape and put them in order according to number of sides. He's also completed the shape pages in the school workbook. 31/03/20

 

I hope you enjoyed the activities last week, here are some more to try!

Easter Project
'Good things that have happened to our planet from social distancing.'
 
Hi Year 1
 
We miss you all and hope that you have managed to settle into a good routine at home where you have been able to balance your home learning, outdoor activity and spending time with your loved ones.
 
Although having to stay indoors for long periods of time can feel a little boring, there are lots of great things that have happened to our world since we have remained inside. 
 
Over the next two weeks, we would like you to research all the brilliant things that are happening to our world. For example, in Venice you can now see clearly through the water at all the sea life because there is less plastic pollution in our oceans. 
 
Your project could include:
  • A poster
  • An online presentation
  • A model of our planet before/after social distancing took place
  • A video recording
  • Some related art work
  • A poem or story
 
 
We really look forward to seeing what you come up with; be as creative as you like and have fun with it!
 
 
As well as doing your project over Easter, please continue to read at least five times a week and practise your phonic sounds using the recommended links on this page.
 
We hope you and your family are well and wish you a lovely Easter holiday.

A big hello to all our Year 2 pupils and their families from Mrs Cable , Mrs Nyiri and Miss Stevens. We hope you have been enjoying your new learning journey at home.

Mrs Cable has been taking some time to do a spot of yoga and baking, when she is not working.She even made some playdough for her little boy to play with, using items from the kitchen cupboard.

Mrs Nyiri has been cooking and playing with her two special pussy cats, named Amber and Fitch. They love being stroked and brushed. She has enjoyed a daily walk and has been spotting all the beautiful blossom and flowers that are coming out in the spring sunshine.

Miss Stevens was in school on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday but now she is at home. Each morning, she has done some peaceful yoga and sat on her sunny balcony reading her book. She ticked off one of the boredom busters by constructing a new garden chair and she looks forward to reading a story on it with Mr Bananas!

 

Here are some activities for the week ahead.

This week we are still thinking about poems.

We are going to write one of our own based on the pattern of this poem about a fairy!

Practise saying it out LOUD! in different voices... like a dragon... like a unicorn?!

 

Do you remember what verbs are?

Yes that's right action/doing words.

 

This fairy uses lots of verbs to describe what she is doing....     fight,  ride.

What other verbs does she use?

 

.

Now you try and write a poem about an alien and use these verbs to help you.

Look at the fairy poem and magpie the structure.

 

Here's one we've written.

 

If I was an alien I would

Zoom in a silver rocket ship all over the galaxy

Jump between deep dark moon craters 

And wiggle my ears when I munch moon rocks for my breakfast.

 

You can then try and write another verse.

Have some fun.

Remember no one writes a brilliant poem first time.

Practise saying your poem outloud.

How does it sound?

Can you improve it?

You could also write a poem called

 

If I was an astronaunt 

 

Good Luck!

 

Try this new activity

 

Draw your own amazing rocket. What 10 things would you take on a trip into space?

 

Try using your phonics to answer these questions...

 

 

 

 

Number 5.

Here's a scavenger hunt that needs you to think  about all  the books you've read? Have fun!

 

 

                                           

 

                         Thinking about your wonderful friends...

                           Why not draw your own octopus. 

 

 

 

    

 

         

 If you liked Small Potatoes you can find more episodes on the iplayer or youtube.

Listen to Mrs Cable reading one of her favourite poem books here

 

We've  found this lovely space poem. 

Try reading it out loud to ... a kind grown up... a friendly pet ... a friend on line.

Read it quietly.

Read it LOUDLY!

Read it in a high pitched  voice  and then  in a deep, low voice. 

Can you spot the rhyming words?

 

There are some questions to go with it if you fancy doing a bit more.

Today, we're looking at giving and following directions bbcbitesize video, dance. Look at these activity cards and direct Ricky Robot! Extension: Can you use clock-wise and anti-clockwise instead of left or right turn?

ART - yesterday, we created our own ~rainbowtrail rainbows out of felt. These will brighten up your homes and if you hang them on your window, it will brighten others' days too!

 

ENGLISH (pop a date at the top of your page)

Hello 2NC Mrs Cable and Mrs Nyiri here!

We can't wait to see who will be the first to login to getepic? We've been checking every day... it's lots of fun .

 

Now here's a lovely english activity for fans of Bob!

Remember those naughty aliens? Write as many adjectives(describing words) as you can think of on a piece of paper (colours,sizes, looks etc) and then put them into an  alphabetical  list.

 

So you could have : green, enormous, strange, weird ,silly

Then when you have thought of lots put them in alphabetical order: sing the alphabet song to help. Which letters come first?

What would happen if you had two words starting with the same letter?

1. enormous

2. green

3. silly        Why did this word come first?    Talk to a grown up about it...

4. strange

5. weird     

Good Luck !

Could you think of more than 10 words? 

If you'd like to do more then use the words in your list to write 5 sentences about an alien.

Try to write longer sentences by using conjunctions like :  and , because  OR  also

Hi Everyone, Miss Stevens here! I hope you're all well and smiling today :) I've finally worked out how to upload videos to YouTube and how to upload sheets for you on this website. So visit this page each day for an update and ideas for learning at home. Year 2 teachers recommend that you start the day with a work out (we've been using Joe Wicks). Then read your book/ go on Bug Club or Read Theory for 20-30 minutes. Have a break at 10.30. Then complete a Maths activity. Lunch is at 12 and make sure you play and eat well until 1. In the afternoon, continue with your moon buggy project or practise some Art in your sketch book. Of course, if you want to start your very own alien story, remember to put the date at the top of your English book page and off you go :)

Click here to see Miss Stevens' first blog (from yesterday!)

Today's Maths work sheet is all about position and direction. Label each shape with the fraction rotation - 1/4 or 1/2 rotation. Here's a tutorial to help.

TERM 4


We are basing our Topic and English work around the book, Man on the Moon (A Day in the Life of Bob) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lO_B7CT_-Cs

English: We are writing our very own 'Day in the Life' stories. This could be one of the aliens that we have noticed in the story or it could be Bob's space friends or even the tourists! It's up to you.

Science: We are investigating how we can change the shape of different materials. How can we change their shape? Are these changes reversible? 

Maths: Our focus this term is multiplication and division. Division also leads onto fractions! Let's have fun with sharing...how can we share shapes and amounts equally?

TERM 5

We are basing our Topic and English work around the book, Traction Man by Mini Grey. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FfW3X1V4J0

This is an incredibly rich story that lends itself to so many exciting activities!

Tm

ENGLISH: We will be creating our very own super heroes and super hero stories. How can your classroom/ house super hero save the day?! Find lots of different ideas of how to bring this story alive here... https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/traction-man-is-here

MATHS: This term we will be revising all Mathematical topics ready for the KS1 assessments. 

Addition and subtraction using partitioning. (Use booklets)

Multiplication and division facts (2,5,10,3). (Use booklets and recitale games, TT Rockstars)

Fractions - 1/2, 1/4, 1/3, 2/4 and 3/4. (Use booklets/ find opportunties at home to investigate sharing equally)

Telling the time on an analogue clock to the nearest 5 minutes. (Use Twinkl/ lots of dicusussion on about time using clocks - reading and calculating durations)

Money - identifying money and finding change. (Use Twinkl and home resources, play shops!)

Measure - kg/ g, km, m, L, ml (Find any opportunity at home to measure and compare lengths, weights and liquids)

We will be providing Maths booklets to take home which will help arithmetic practice. Please search these topics through Twinkl and Classroom Secrets for further ideas and resources.

WEEKLY UPDATE - Message from your teachers Week Begining 30th March 2020

Hello Year 5!

Well, it’s certainly been a very quiet week without you all. We’ve been keeping ourselves busy with a daily walk in the beautiful sunshine, some yoga, baking and even a spot of gardening!

We hope you are all settling into your new routines at home, and that you’re well. This is a funny old time and it will take a little bit of getting used to. There is no ‘right way’ to feel or be at the moment; it’s ok to be a bit worried, it’s ok to have fun and it’s ok to feel however you are feeling.

Hopefully you’ve all had some time to have a look at the online learning tasks. Next week, you could have a go at the following:

  • Choose a video on the literacy shed and write a story about it (invisible housepoints if you manage to get in a relative clause, correctly punctuated speech and adverbials for cohesion!)
  • Have a go at some maths. You could use the online resources, or try a new recipe and practice your measuring skills. You could even create yourself a new timetable for the day and work out how long each activity will last.
  • Find something that makes you smile and draw it. It could be someone in your family, something in the garden or something in your house.
  • We can’t wait to see your brilliant Bristol projects once we are able to return to school and are already wondering what fantastic creative ideas you’ll all come up with. You could use some of your time to do that this week too.
  • Do something active. There are lots of great videos online, Joe Wicks the Bodycoach is doing daily PE lessons, and Oti from The Greatest Dancer is doing online dance lessons!
  • And of course, please make sure you are still reading!

 

Take care, be kind and stay safe,

Mrs Peasey and Miss Wiltshire

Hello 6C,

It has been so strange walking past our classroom and not being able to teach you all! We have created so many memories there and it always made me smile walking past. I really hope you are all okay, still behaving at home and helping out with chores? (Not just on Xbox!). Over the next two weeks, try to relax if you can but keep your day structured. Your next required work will be week commencing 20/4/2020 so scroll down to check. Maybe do some exercise in the morning, have some lunch, read a book or do some drawing, make something, learn something new or even do some extra maths! In terms of what I expect, it might be a good time to look at the next term's topic on ' Colonisation' and create a Powerpoint? Make sure you look after yourself, as well as your family and stay as positive as always. I will see you soon no doubt.

 

Mr Cox

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well. 

I have some very exciting news about an Easter writing competition that I am running for the whole school. You can choose any text type that you like and the theme is EASTER.

You might like to write a story, a cartoon strip, a newspaper article, an information page or even film your very own documentary!

I have two prizes to give away (one for KS1 and one for KS2) so make sure you put your class on your entry.

All you need to do is email a copy, photograph or video of your entry to the school email address and I can start judging.

The closing date for entries is Friday 24th April so get writing!

Happy Easter! 

Miss Wiltshire
