Summer 1 in Dolphin class

Its been an emotional week in Dolphin class but I’m really impressed with how well you have all behaved and how hard you have worked!

I’ve loved watching you all learn and progress throughout the year! I’ll miss you all and know you’ll be happy in your new classes!

Good luck with your new classes and don’t forget to crack on!

All the best,

Mr Havies

Spring 2 week 6 in Porpoise class

The children have got creative in their DT lesson, creating their night lamps . The children join materials together using a range of materials strong enough to keep the lamp standing and hold a circuit. They look absolutely amazing!. The children went outside in to the playground and field to create their own OS map, creating their own symbols and plotting it onto a grid.
in music, the children looked at the four different Orchestra family the timbres and were able to identify different instruments that went into each family as well as the characteristics made up that orchestra family.

It is with genuine sadness that I informed everyone that I will be leaving the week after the Easter holidays. This is due to my family relocating to Birmingham. I am very upset that I cannot finish the year with you all, but circumstances are such that I have to move in April.
I’m so proud of you all! You have progressed so much since the start of the year and I am really chuffed that we are now winning best dressed class, getting stars for our attendance and being noticed by other teachers for doing the right thing. We will have two more weeks together and I plan to make them the best two weeks of the year! We have our treat day on Monday, the trip on Thursday and on Friday we will all get to show our adults all the good work we have done this term!

This week we finished off our nightlights! As you can see we had some very creative and inventive products made!

This week saw our first Times Tables Rockstars certificates handed out! Well done to Tyler, Sasmeka, Nayef, Mia and Casey for your hard work! We also ventured outside to look for invertebrates in science, and made some masks using paper mache!
