Student Council Visit Westminster

Student Council visit Westminster

Westminster 1 Westminster 2 Westminster 3

Our student council had a very busy but exciting day at Westminster learning all about life as a councillor.

The children attended a workshop that looked at how people have their voices heard in Parliament.

It focused on the decisions made at different levels of government such as local, devolved and national.

This has been a great extension to the work the children have already done with John Healey MP and earlier in the year with Councillor Christopher Read.

Here’s what the children had to say…

Maddison – ‘The visit was amazing, I really  enjoyed it.  I learnt that the Queen only visits Parliament once a year.  I saw her big throne there!’

Tom – ‘Today I have enjoyed absolutely everything!  I have learnt that the Queen is not allowed in the House of Commons, only the House of Lords.’

Ellie – ‘I’ve enjoyed everything we have done.  I loved going into Parliament and walking through London.  I learnt a lot.  Thank you for taking me.’

Ella – ‘Today I enjoyed visiting Parliament and finding out about working in the House of Lords and Commons.  I especially enjoyed having a ‘vote’ and acting out a situation in the workshop.’

Week beginning 4-7-16

Let's Learn Together

Year 3

Y3 will be starting to write our own hero and villain stories next week. We are looking forward to creating our own characters and thinking about the plot, settings and resolution. In SPaG lessons we will be continuing to work on inverted commas as well as word families.

In numeracy we will be thinking about capacity. This will involve us looking at how to measure liquids using various measuring equipment. Please remember to keep practising those times tables. 

During creative lessons we will be exploring hero and villain costumes thinking about materials and how they are made. Also, we will be using our powder paint skills to create portraits of famous heroes and villains. 

Remember to bring your PE kit to school everyday as we have a lot of children with missing kit at the minute. 

Year 4

Next week in Y4, we’re perfecting our prose about potions; securing spellings, punctuating properly and getting to grips with the correct grammar. 

In mathematics, we’ll be using calendars, timetables and clocks to solve puzzles and problems relating to all sorts of time. Can you tell the time? Does it exist?

In RE, it is Eid next week; 4G have already started making Eid cards and 4MW and 4D will be learning more about the festival that marks the end of Ramadan. 

Our transition sessions are on Wednesday and Thursday next week; you’ll be doing more magical activities with your new teachers around our Harry Potter theme.

Remember your PE kits should be in school every day and let’s try to increase our attendance percentage from last week!

Year 5

In Week 5 of this summer term Year 5 will be reviewing their progress in mathematics through revision and the end of term assessments in arithmetic and reasoning skills. We will also be reviewing our progress in SPaG.

On Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning there will be transition to Year 6, the classes are getting very excited about moving up, whilst enjoying the topic of Harry Potter.

In science we will be continuing our study of minibeast by going on a minibeast hunt and using our classification skills to identify them.

In literacy we are finishing our non-chronological reports about animals and then writing a short narrative based on the invention of a ‘beast’ as part of our topic called ‘Beast Creator’.

Please can children ensure they have a PE kit available all week as PE sessions may be moved around depending on the weather.

The Battle of the Somme

The Battle of the Somme

3691382_Battle_of_the_Somme-large_trans++ipDOC0SYvIS0P1F3nifng60lXemu6JGPc2J4UIOu5R0

The children in school demonstrated their knowledge in assembly about the significance of the 1st July 1916.

The first day of the Battle, July 1 1916, was also the bloodiest, and remains the worst in the British Army’s history.

Of Britain’s first-day casualties, a staggering 19,240 died.

Officers below Major died at a much higher rate on the Somme than private soldiers did, with 60% of British officers who were involved on the first day losing their lives.

The battle lasted 141 days, from July 1 to November 18 1916.

The average British infantryman had to carry 30kg of equipment along with him during the initial advance to the German lines.

In classes, children watched clips and discussed The Battle of the Somme in more detail, reflecting and remembering.

Children in 4G discussed the causes of the 1st World War and the horrors of being in the trenches.  They watched clips on CBBC and Newsround to enhance their understanding.
