Congratulations to our newly appointed Head boy and Head Girl

Jake and Libby

And our new Deputies

Rhys, Leyli and Evie

We look forward to working with you!

 

All children were fantastic at interview, it was a very hard decision appointing. I’m sure you agree such a wonderful experience for them and good practice for the future. We were so impressed with the applicants that we felt others deserved some responsibility too so we are currently agreeing some new positions. Watch this space for an update…

Our Macmillan Coffee Afternoon

Aladdin 

 

We had a very exciting day today. Maple class was invited to the Castle Theatre, Wellingborough to help launch the pantomime season.

 

We got to take part in a workshop lead by two of the cast members- Jasmin and Aladdin. Some children were given lines to present the cast at the press release. We finished the afternoon having photo opportunities with the cast that included Atomic Kitten's, Natasha Hamilton.

 

A fantastic day, thank you for the invite we really enjoyed ourselves.

Also a huge thank you to Mrs Scola, Mrs Ellwood, Mrs Harris, Mrs Kerlin, Mrs Pike and Mrs Parsons for your support and help transporting the children and of course a thank you to Mrs Brown for thinking of us and putting us in contact with the Castle for such a lovely opportunity.

 

Can we take this chance to wish our very own shining star Elliott good luck for his part in the Aladdin pantomime, we know you will be amazing and we can’t wait to hear all about it. Don’t forget to go see him if you have a chance!

Avalanche Shelter design competition

 

After the previous week's lesson on strength from triangles in engineering, using only one sheet of card, art straws and PVA glue, the class were challenged to make an avalanche shelter that cold protect the girl from weights of up to 1kg, dropped from 1 metre above.

USA Handiwork

 

I'm sure you've all seen the handsome science work USA children brought home tonight. It was all-hands-on-deck as we had a special visitor from Wrenn Academy delivering a science lesson on the human skeleton, a topic that goes hand-in-hand with some of our human body work this term. Some of the children needed a helping hand with the more tricky bits, but I was there to lend a hand to those who struggled to assemble the tendons, carpals and phalanges. The bone names were difficult to remember in the theoretical part of the lesson, but a more hands-on approach was hands-down more memorable. At the end of the afternoon, a show of hands was a weird sight; on the other hand, shaking hands in the cloakroom would have been odder.

MUSEUM OF ANCIENT GREECE

Thank you to everyone who came along for our Greek Museum afternoon. It was lovely to receive so many positive comments, about the children's knowledge, enthusiasm, manners and confidence. It was great to see so many of you attend - your support only makes my job easier, as it enthuses the children further - by 2:30 they were so excited I though some of them were going to burst.

 

Well done USA - you made me a very proud teacher today.

 

Some photos of the afternoon are below.

 

Well done to the winners of our photo quiz this afternoon, guessing the Greek inventions on our class display, and thank you to all who took part. The correct answers (that have names on) came from:

 

Water clock - Colin's dad

Jumping weights - Sarah

Toothbrush - Kat

Automatic doors - Jens N

 

There were lots of other correct answers, but they either have no names on them or the name was illegible (come on parents - you're worse than your children!).

MUSEUM OF ANCIENT GREECE

Class USA are opening a museum on Ancient Greece for one day only, Thursday 6 December, in the mobile, from 2:45 - 3:30pm. Please come along and support our work, and let the children show you how much they know about the Ancient Greek civilisation.
See you there, I hope.

End of WW1 Centenary - 1918 - 2018

 

Our class have been studying WW1 war poets this week, and inspired by what they have read and learned, each of them has written a poem in tribute to those poets, and all who lost their lives or loved ones in the Great War. The book can be downloaded below, along with the original poems we studied all week.

I am hugely proud of their efforts, and how respectfully and seriously they all undertook this task.

Parents' Evening follow-up (8/11/18)

 

Here are a two of the documents some of you asked me about last night at parents' evening meetings.

 

The Maths curriculum map shows the order each class is studying different areas of maths this year. The 'Reading Support' one has some suggested questions / prompts which would be good to promote discussion when reading to or with Y5/6 children.

If there's anything else you need, or have thought about after our meeting last night, please contact me by email or see me after school (from next week - I still have a few individual appointments this week).

Clepsydra Competition

 

Today the children worked to design and build a working clepsydra (an ancient Greek invention, a water clock) to accurately measure 1 minute. The results were impressive, with 6 pairs measuring a minute to within 4 seconds, three of them being within 2 seconds. The winners were:

1st: Ross & Amy - 1 minute 0.66 seconds

2nd: Lily & Harley - 58.39 seconds

3rd: Fynn & Samia - 1:01.90

4th: Dougie & Emily - 1:02.22

5th: Jake & Alanna - 1:02.96

6th: Abi & Mavi - 1:03.99

YEAR 6 BIKEABILITY GROUPS

 

Everyone who returned their form will be doing Level 1 Bikeability on the first morning back, Monday 4th June. This will go ahead whatever the weather, so dress for the conditions on that day (you can come to school in your PE / cycling kit), and remember to bring school uniform to change into for the afternoon.

 

 

I have worked out groups to avoid clashes with the cricket teams on Wednesday. If you pass level 1, you will be doing level 2 as follows:

 

Tuesday 5th June, 9am - 3pm

Archie B, Archie L, Joseph, Baydon, Max, Lauren, Stefanie, Katy M, Amelia W, Phoebe

 

Wednesday 6th June, 9am - 3pm

Kieran, Amelia C, Konstantin, Rylee, Isaac, William, Charlie, Clinton

 

All cyclists will return to school between 12:10 - 1:10pm for their usual lunch hour. Any hot dinners booked are unaffected.

Maths SATs Morning Booster Classes

 

In the weeks between Easter and SATs, I will be running morning booster classes in Maths for year 6. They are optional, but can really make a difference, with the chance to work in smaller groups and tackle any specific problem areas or worries they might have. If your child encounters an area of Maths that they find difficult in their revision books, this is the ideal time to bring them in for some extra individual support.

 

Booster classes will take place in class USA from 8:00am to 8:45am on the following dates:

 

  1. Wednesday 18 April
  2. Wednesday 25 April
  3. Wednesday 2 May
  4. Wednesday 9 May

 

There is no need to sign a permission letter, or to attend every one; if you can only make one or two of them that’s better than none at all. Just turn up with your Maths revision books between 7:55 - 8:00am (please be prompt – arriving after 8:00 is really disruptive for everyone else) with your Maths brain ready to go.

Horowitz Horror

I've had several requests for the book I've been reading the children this term. It is called 'Horowitz Horror' by Anthony Horowitz, and is age-appropriate for years 5-6, and full of well-crafted scary / suspense stories that have really caught the imagination this term.

It is available for £5.99 on Amazon.

 

 

 

 

The inter-faith group from Wellingborough visited our school and lead workshops based on their religions.  The children asked lots of questions and filled a workbook with lots of information they had found out.  We will be learning more about these religions in the next few weeks.

 

 

Class USA have been studying horror and suspense fiction this term. We have written a class ghost story - every child has contributed in some way to this story, so it is a real team effort. Enjoy.

 

Breath             by Class USA

 

          Splash!

          James was glad to be in the water - those changing rooms were gloomy, eerie and oddly worrying. Although he normally spent as long as he could admiring his own reflection, the mirrors at Hellingborough indoor swimming pool made him feel nervous, like a pair of concealed, blood-shot eyes were watching him. Now he was in the water, where he was most at home, swimming his fifty lengths he did every morning before the pool opened to the public. There were four other members of staff there this morning, but instead of swimming lengths like James, they were all sat around chatting in the little hot-tub pool at the side. Even Paul, the lifeguard who should have been watching at the side, was 'chilling' in the tub. Despite this, James was enjoying having the main pool to himself, before the stickies came in and warmed up (and topped up) the pool a bit.

          "Oi James!" yelled Paul. "I bet you can't do two lengths underwater."

James already knew Paul was an idiot (only last week, on James' first day, Paul had pushed him off the high diving board, and James hasn't felt well since), but he didn't want to lose face in front of the rest of the staff. Accepting the challenge, James took a deep breath and plunged into the deepest, darkest water.

          The first length was easy. Silence. Stillness. Solitude.

          Towards the end of the second length, however, he knew he was in trouble: his arms and legs seemed to slow down; he could hear his rapid heart-beat accelerating; his lungs felt squeezed, like someone was inside his chest gripping them tight.

          Ascending from the depths, he noticed a dark, fast-moving silhouette out of the corner of his eye. Was the lack of oxygen making him imagine it? He turned. Beneath him, wearing an oddly old-fashioned swimming costume, he saw a woman with the palest skin he'd ever seen and long, dark, wavy hair glide past.

In the changing rooms, James and the other staff chatted about nothing in particular as they got dried and dressed into their smart red and yellow uniforms, ready for the pool to open to the public in ten minutes. Not wanting to appear peculiar, James decided not to say anything about the mysterious figure in the pool to the people he was working with all day.

          At six o'clock, the others went off to their jobs, leaving James alone in the changing rooms - he didn't start work until 6:30.

          Whistling his familiar tune, Bob the caretaker came mopping and sweeping into the changing rooms.

          "Hello James. Are you OK? You look a bit pale today," enquired Bob.

          "Funny you should ask that. I've just seen a strange, very pale woman swim under me in the pool just now," replied James.

          "You must be imagining it. There haven't been any women swimming this morning - the female changing rooms are still locked."

Shocked and confused, James rushed out of the door to the female changing rooms. He yanked the handle, but soon noticed it was locked, just like Bob had said.

          Sprinting through the male changing rooms, past a bewildered Bob, he hurried into the pool area, but found the female changing room door locked on that side too. Staring into the translucent, rippling water, he was surprised to see that the mysterious female swimmer was nowhere to be seen. There were no wet footprints (apart from his own) at the poolside either.

          James charged to the office. He thought the security camera footage might show her ... but despite playing it back five times, he was the only swimmer in the pool that morning. Maybe he imagined her - after all, he was struggling to breathe at the time.

          Spinning the office chair around, before he could get up he came face to face with a photo of a swimmer - she was pale skinned, with long wavy dark hair, blood-shot eyes and was wearing an oddly old-fashioned swimsuit. Next to the photo, a plaque read: 'In loving memory of Jane Coral, Olympic swimmer, 1878 - 1898.'

School Council reps for Y6

 

Following an election in class last week, the school council representatives for year 6 were chosen. Congratulations to: Katy M and Archie L.

 

(If either of these is selected as head boy / girl, the runner-up in the election will take their place as the extra Y6 school council rep).

Year 5 reps were chosen by an election in Miss Shelton's maths class (just year 5s).

Congratulations to all of year 6 for an excellent set of SAT results - all the hard work paid off in the end. Particular mention should be made of our '100-percenters,' it's such a rare achievement and I'm so proud of you all.
