Homework

Homework is given to children on a Friday and should be back in school the following Tuesday. If children do not bring homework in, they will be completing it during their reward time! Children will also have a spelling test on Friday morning! 

 

Changing of books

Children can change their books every Friday.

 

School Uniform

Please make sure that your child’s name is written inside all school clothes (cardigans, jumpers, trousers, PE kits and coats). This makes it easier to give out misplaced clothes back to their rightful owners. Remember if you take your jumper off in class, place it in the take home box to keep it safe!

In topic, we have been creating our own volcanoes! We had to assemble them using bottles, paper and masking tape. We then painted them using greens, browns and greys for the volcano. We then used red, orange and yellow for the lava and green for the grass at the bottom. We had so much fun making them.

 

On Wednesday 12th December, we got to explode them. We did have some technical issues as the bottles that we had used were TOO big! But we did try our hardest!

On Thursday 18th October we had the Eco Bus visit us. The eco bus is  a mobile environmental classroom that will help educate children and adults about their local environment and help keep waste levels down and recycling levels up in Sandwell. We completed a quiz all about recycling, looking at what could and couldn't be recycled. We Were split into 2 groups; and within our little groups we split into boys and girls. We completed a quiz and the boys won both times (They had so much knowledge)!!!

On Wednesday 10th October, we participated in World Mental Health Awareness Day.

We all came to school dressed in green and took part in a range of activities on the afternoon.

We looked at positive and negative words and how hurtful words can effect someone. We then chose 1 person in the class and wrote positive things about them. We also looked at a hot air balloon! We put ALL the things that make us happy at the top and the things made us sad in the sandbags. We worked really well.

On Monday 17th September, we completed a range of activities all linked to Healthy Schools Week!

One activity that we really enjoyed was 'What makes us happy?'. Even though we need lots of exercise, fruit and vegetables- we also need to make sure we are happy.

We created people that represented us and within them we drew pictures of everything makes us happy! Miss Hamer has put them up on a wall in our classroom, so whenever we feel down, we can look and see what makes us happy.

For hook day,  we all dressed up in clothes that were blue and green and completed amazing art activities.

This really helped us to get excited about what we will be learning about in our Topic lessons. We looked at how we can save our environment and tried to recreate volcano pictures.

 

We created some fantastic pieces of art work and used new techniques. We also looked at how we can help reduce, reuse and recycle everyday items! We have had a fabulous day!!
