Sounds all around 

 
Check out our wonderful listening ears! The Daisies have been very busy listening for familiar sounds in our outdoor environment. They had so much fun wearing our ‘careful listening ears’. 

 Firework sounds!

The Daisies have been working so hard in their phonics this week. They made their very own firework sounds! They loved experimenting with all of the different instruments. 

 

The Dragonfly

Year 6 have been visited by a Modroc dragonfly; Mr. S is convinced it is an unidentified flying object, but Mrs. B assures him it is a dragonfly. The children asked if they could write stories about the dragonfly, so we did! The only rule was that the stories had to include an icy world at some point during the story. The children planned their stories using story mountains, and then summarised their stories using storyboards. The children will also use a bit of their ICT time to create an animated version of their stories later today.

The Gunpowder Plot

The children have been sorting sentences about The Gunpowder Plot into paragraphs using who, what, where, when and why. We are getting ready for our Big Write on Friday – a non chronological report. 

We love to read!

Year 6 discussed their favourite books with each other, and they wrote a little bit about why certain books were their favourites. Some books brought back special memories with their families; others brought back memories of fantastic holidays; others brought back memories of when they were in different school years.

Super Assembly

The Foxes dazzled a huge audience with their amazing assembly all about Superheroes. They looked awesome as they sang, shared their Big Writes, art work and poetry.
Well done Foxes… you were wonderful!

Oh help! Oh no! It’s a Gruffalo

Look at these clever Daisies! They are amazing at retelling one of our favorite stories. We are working so hard to join in with the refrains. We are storytelling superstars! 

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

The Foxes are really enjoying their ‘Superhero’ topic. They have recently spent some time researching one of their favourite heroes: Superman. They will use their findings in their next Big Write.

An Autumn Walk

The Year 1/2 Bees have enjoyed their Autumn Walk this week. They have been out and about school looking for all the signs of Autumn to inspire their amazing Autumn Poetry.
