How many Penguins?

Last week, during book week, the school went penguin mad! The whole school used the book 365 Penguins to base their learning on. In maths pupil looked at; how numbers could be represented, odd and evens, doubling and halving, keeping totals, arrays, square numbers, days of the week, month and year. The also looked at Pascal’s triangle, distances to visit the penguins and time to get there. To name but a few of the activities.

 In English instructions for looking after penguins, poems, creative stories and non-chronological reports were some of the areas covered by classes.

Science looked at habitats, adaptations, food chains and classification. The art can be seen in the library! 

The children had a great week studying the same book but learning in completely different ways!

Story Writing Winners

Following the visit by author Kevin Crossley-Holland, Years 5 and 6 wrote stories which were sent for him to read. He was impressed with the standard of writing and chose two winners who received signed books written by Kevin. We are very proud of Harry and Meg and wish to thank Kevin for taking the time to read the stories and providing his books as prizes.

Creative fun at the KS1 Reading Cafe.

Our school hall was buzzing this morning to the sound of giggles and cooperative chatter as we held our latest reading Cafe. 

We shared one of Oliver Jeffers’ stories.  In Stuck a little boy has an interesting way of solving the problem of his kite being stuck in a tree.  After listening to this ridiculous tale the children and adults all worked together to create some incredible art work.  This can now be viewed stuck in our very own library tree! 

A huge thank you to all of the grown ups who were able to join us, your help was invaluable!
