We were so proud of our Year 5 Kwik cricketers who represented the school and Christchurch in the county finals last week! Thanks to Mrs Colebeck who supported them.
Class 5 have really enjoyed learning about Shakespeare’s Macbeth in their latest Talk4Writing unit and next week will be planning and writing their own Shakespearean tragedy, as a play script. It all begin with a ‘treasure-hunt’ and the grim discovery of a pair of bloodied knives!
Congratulations to our Learner of the Week, who sang her heart out at the Pavilion concert! She was noticed by members of the public. We have also been really impressed with her imaginative play script writing.
Well done to our Learner of the Week. This pupil has ‘WOWed’ us all year with her amazing writing and her persuasive leaflet linked to alcohol awareness was tremendous.
A big well done to our most recent Learner of the Week who has really grown in confidence with her maths and has been doing a fantastic job in her ‘Every Day Counts’ – basic skills practice – each morning.
For the fantastic finale to their ‘Fantastic Forces’ project, Class 5 launched their water rockets from the KS1 playground! It was tremendous fun as the various rockets travelled in a variety of directions and reached different heights (including one landing on the roof of the boiler room!).
We concluded that filling the bottles with more water does not mean the rocket goes higher (because there is more weight and less space for air pressure to build). The optimum amount of water appeared to be one-third full.
Pupils in classes 3 & 5 are looking forward to participating in the ‘Singing Strategy’ concert on Tuesday 2nd July at the Pavillion in Bournemouth.
Attached are copies of the lyrics of the songs we will be performing so that pupils can practise at home!
Well done to our latest learner of the week, who has been really impressing with her writing recently! She has done a great job with her anti-smoking persuasive leaflet this week, using a very mature and informative style.
