Over the Oceans Blue.

Year three dived headfirst into a successful trip to the Sea Life centre this week.  The boys were fortunate enough to join in with a variety of different activities, from touching some of the sea creatures

to watching Ernie the turtle at feeding time.  The boys were a credit to our school and had lots of fun learning about this habitat.

 

Marvellous Mathematicians!

In Year 5 Jade we have been having a big push on times tables so the boys have speedy recall of all these vital maths facts. This group of five are the first to achieve their Diamond Maths Badges by having instant recall of all sevens, nines and twelve times tables including division fac ts. Previously they have achieved their Bronze, Silver and Gold badges for the other times tables. Well done to Henry, Xuan Ming, Youseuf, Cameron and Ewan

 

TTRockstars – Battle of The Bands Countdown!

Don’t forget … the next Battle of the Bands finishes before half term next week. Make sure that you log in and complete your challenges to earn points for yourself and your class. There will be mini-prizes awarded after half term for the winning classes!

 

Shadowy Science

In Year 6, the boys have been creating Shadow Sculptures in Science, based on the work of Tim Noble and Sue Webster. There were some truly fantastic creations from the boys who clearly enjoyed last week’s home learning task!

 

Clubs

 

Origami Club (Monday Lunchtime)

Origami from ori meaning “folding”, and ‘gami’ meaning “paper” is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. In modern usage, the word “origami” is used as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin. The goal is to transform a flat sheet square of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques. Modern origami practitioners generally discourage the use of cuts, glue, or markings on the paper.

Since the return of the children in September the Origami Club have met Monday Lunchtime in the Exitus Burgundy classroom. We have made a selection of items from the traditional Crane (flapping bird) and old favourite, different dinosaurs, a chair, a church and two different types of boxes. (See Origami Club pictures in file)

 

Multi –Sports (Tuesday after School)

The multi-sports club has proved to be a very popular choice amongst the boys so far this term, with more than 30 boys signing up. So far they have been playing a range of less tradition team sports and invasion games, all designed to help develop the boys’ spatial awareness and team work skills.
