Celebrating Homework

This week we shared our homework with the class. I was very impressed by the standard of the work and enjoyed giving the children feedback on their efforts. There were some fabulous pieces, from maths games to poetry. Everyone gave and received positive comments about why we liked particular pieces of homework and we each shared a piece of work we were particularly proud of.

Sports Relief

This week, the Sports Crew and some of our Play Leaders have been organising extra sports activities. These have included hula hooping, skipping, juggling, cardio fun and ‘keepie-uppies’. Thank you to Harrogate Racquets for running the Cardio Fun session. Our respective winners will be given certificates in next week’s celebration assembly.

Enteprise Day

The children enjoyed a successful Enterprise Day. They raised money for the school council with their stalls, using a £5 loan that had to be paid back. This year stalls were based around the theme of a book, for 5M it was How To Train Your Dragon, which is also our class book at the moment.  

World Book Day

For World Book Day the children enjoyed a visit from poet Annaliese Emmans Dea,  brought in their favourite book in to share and each classroom was turned into a themed reading room.

Open Hour

A big thank you to all the family members that were able to join us for open hour. The event was very well attended. The children really enjoyed having you in class and being able to share their work so far from this years Arts Week

Playground rules poster competition

In 5M and throughout the school we have been thinking about our playtime rules and how we can keep them safe, happy and fun. Mr Moore had the hard task of selecting two winning poster designs, which will be displayed in classrooms and around the school. Elodie Parker and Grace Brierley were the winning entries for 5M. Miss Weir presented certificates to the winners in celebration assembly and was most impressed by the creative high winning entry standards.

Christmas Displays

In 5M, the tigers have been researching Advent and creating their own Advent calendar. We created our own advent calendar section, making levers with a fixed and loose pivot, producing a moving decoration. We also explored the meaning of Advent and our hopes for the future.

 

British Values and SMSC:

 

Spiritual - we spent time reflecting on our own and others experiences at Christmas. Behind each door you will find the children's hopes for future Christmases, based on these reflections.

 

Cultural - we researched the history of the modern Advent calendar, discovering its European roots went back to the mid-19th Century.

Class book

Our current class book is Tall Tales by E.R.Reilly. We are enjoying the imaginative and colourful adventure of Tanya.

Anti Bullying Week

This year, the theme for Anti-Bullying week is ‘All Different, All Equal’. We also explored the different kinds of bullying, the emotional and physical symptoms of bullying and what to do if your or someone you know is being bullies. Below is an example of the work we did in class by Rebecca Manyonganise.
