Week 4 (10/05/2013)
In Numeracy we have been having fun learning about fractions. We have looked at writing newspaper reports in Literacy and have written some super sentences.
Mr Houghton kindly lent us his mountaineering equipment for Geography, so that we could see what a mountaineer would take climbing with him. The best bit was that we could dress up as mountaineers ourselves! In Science we continued with our experimenting of keeping liquid at the same temperature and this time it was warm water.
Summer Week 3 (03/05/2013)
Busy, busy , busy! In Literacy we have written our own newspaper reports after organising the key details and putting them in order of occurance. We chose to write about our Comic Relief fundraiser that we held in School. We practised division and multiplying in Numeracy. We carried out an investigation in Science to see what materials are best at keeping a cup of freezing water cold. We had fun discussing pillow function, dimensions, materials, target market, equipment needed and how we will transfer the design onto the material for our pillowcases.
We have progressed in our games of Hockey and have been learning to stay in position. In Geography we designed our own informative posters showing facts about our chosen mountain.
Have a super Bank Holiday weekend break.
Summer Week 2 (26/04/2013)
This week in Numeracy we have been partitioning numbers to help us multiply. We continued to practice imaginative character and time related openings for our stories in Literacy. In science we used thermometers to accurately gage the temperature of three different bowls of water. Geography was fun as we used netbooks to find facts about mountains. We have been practising sewing and tried tacking, running and back stitch with Mrs Chard.
An assembly by the Air Ambulance Was both enjoyable and informative.
We have also reviewed some of our favourite books and put them on a classroom display so that others can enjoy them too.
Summer Week 1 (18/04/2013)
We are back for the Summer Term, refreshed and ready for learning.
In Literacy we have been looking at how actions can help us remember the story. We have created story maps and have been looking at ways to make our writing more imaginative. In Numeracy we have learnt about angles and also how to measure the perimeter and area of a rectangle. We were introduced to hockey in PE and started with how to properly hold the hockey stick and control the ball. We have some fun DT homework this week involving researching existing products on the market in order to make our own pillow case.
Happy Easter: (28/03/2013)
Over this half term the children have been working hard on a fantastic project. The children have been creating their own mazes!!! This was linked to the story of the Minotaur which the children have studied in Literacy.
Once again Class 7 has shown real enthusiasm and team spirit and this was reflected in all the amazing effort in the Easter Egg competition.
Thank you all for your support this term, the children have taken on all the new challenges that have faced them and excelled in doing so.
Comic Relief (15/03/2013)
What an amazing week we have had, the whole school has really pulled together and achieved so much!! The children in class 7 have really got into the spirit of this week and taken part and supported their friends.
In numeracy we have been looking at 3D shapes and their properties and in our literacy we are looking forward to creating some of our own poems!!! The children really enjoy playing Robinhood maths and I am sure they would love playing it at home, so please encourage them to continue and play along!!
Quick reminder that it is swimming as normal on Monday and also that on Friday it is Spanish day.
Assessment week: (11/02/2013)
This week is assessment week. We will be looking in to Literacy and Numeracy. We are confident in our pupil’s progress and are looking forward to the results. The children have been working really hard during our time together and whatever the outcome we know our children will have done their best. Make sure they get plenty of sleep and are fully prepared for another exciting week… before our short break!
Welcome back: (17/01/2013)
The children have worked very hard this week and produced some excellent work. We have been looking at our new class story 'Theseus and the Minotaur.' I am sure the children would love to show the fantastic action they have created to retell the story.
Seasons Greetings: (20/12/2012)
Before we all leave for a well earned break, we in Class 7 would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The children have been exemplary in all their efforts and we wish them the best of luck in the coming year. We look forward to hearing all their Christmas stories when they return back safely.
The Nativity! (17/12/2012)
Congratulations to everyone in Class 7 who performed in the wonderful KS2 Nativity performance. The show was a huge success and the support from the children’s families has been outstanding, from the costumes through to the support on the night. The children have been working so hard and we look forward to our last week with lots of Christmas surprises and festive fun.
This week has been really busy. We have been rehearsing for the KS2 Nativity play – it is looking amazing and the children sound wonderful. Our class focus is to use different openers ensuring our punctuation is correct so this week we have begun planning our own stories. Our focus in numeracy has been division, we have used the sharing method, grouping method and even partitioning. In History we have been finding interesting facts about Queen Victoria which I’m sure the children will love to share with you. Thank you very much for all those who have provided gifts for the Secret Santa next week.
Christmas art week: (23/11/2012)
Another action packed week filled with wonderful Christmas surprises!! We started the week with a lovely Christingles service followed by the children creating their very own.
This week has been Christmas art week we have created some lovely 3D Christmas trees and also designed some beautifully colourful bells.
Special congratulations to the pupils from class 7 who took part in the Youth Speaks competition, you sounded amazing and did so well!!!
Children in need: (16/11/2012)
Thank you to all the children who have made efforts to look amazingly colourful today and contributed to Children in Need. We are now looking forward to the torch light procession, good luck and stay safe!!
Welcome back (09/11/2012)
This week the children have begun an investigation into the effects of sugar on an egg. To finish the week we have continued with our whole school project and covered our withy stars, the children have done an amazing job and we are really excited to show them off in the torch light procession.
Have a nice break (26/10/2012)
Well done Class 7!!! After an intense week of assessment the children deserve a well earned break. Have a wonderful half term and keep safe. We look forward to seeing you back for the big build up to... CHRISTMAS
Bible presentation (19/10/2012)
This week our year 3’s and 4’s were presented with their Bibles. It was a lovely assembly and the children were amazing for the whole service. In science this week we looked at teeth, the children were given big models to examine and we looked at the different teeth and what we use them for. A quick reminder (if it is possible) could the children for Monday bring in cereal boxes, straws and whatever else please to help us build are BB park models.
This week the children have been completing a science investigation. The children were asked to collect data relating to living things, we chose to look closely at the slug!!! The children then had to test and check their predictions and find any interesting patterns in their results.
In numeracy the children have been looking at the properties of shapes, both 2D and 3D. To prove their knowledge of shape the children had to report to an alien all the key words and information they knew about their given shape.
A Magic Week (05/10/2012)
This week we have moved on to a new class story, ‘The magic Brush’. The children have had great fun role playing the story. Also this week the children have been introduced to a new sport in PE Dodgeball!!! Alongside class 6 we went into the hall and played a small sided tournament. The children had such great fun, you could hear the cheers and echoes throughout the school.
Super Performance (03/10/2012)
What a Dahlicious day we have had. The children in Class 7 looked fabulous in their fancy dress today, thank you for your support with their costumes. The nerves were high today as Class 7 prepared to perform in front of the whole school!!! However the children showed no hint of stage fright as they gave a grade A performance of our class story ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ with a twist of ‘gum boots’. We were very proud as a school to see how brilliant our children continue to be.
What we've got in store for you... (21/09/2012)
Numeracy this week has been focused on the partitioning of numbers. The children have been experimenting with 2, 3, 4 and even 5 digit numbers and breaking them down in to their place values.
Our exciting class story has been worked on and the children are doing an excellent job in bringing the poem to life with class 6. We are now using the poem and our own rhyming trees beginning to create our own even more interesting medicines!!!!
In art we have produced some amazing collages of some very tasty fruits and put them in our very own fruit bowl.
Lastly don’t forget Roald Dahl day next Friday is fancy dress.
A Marvellous Week. (14/09/2012)
This week the children have really settled in and begun some fantastic work. As part of our learning we have in both Literacy and Numeracy introduced some Kung Fu actions to help the children remember symbols and punctuation. Both have been great fun learning. Our class story is George's Marvellous Medicine. The children have already started to bring the story to life with some fantastic actions and brilliant ‘hot seating’. Geography this half term is based around our local area, this week we have introduced map work and how to spot key features on a map. We then moved on to Science. Our topic as a healthy school was food to help guide our children in healthy and help children understand the importance of a healthy diet. Finally we have had swaps and already the enthusiasm is running through the school, with ‘Gum boots’ music and dance filling the air.
Welcome back!!! (07/09/2012)
Welcome back to all our new faces. We are really excited for the time we have ahead of us. Already we are seeing this new class blossom into a fantastic team. Every child has got straight into to the swing of it and has contributed well to the rest of the class and the high expectations we as a school have.
End of Term (25/07/2012)
We have all had such a wonderful year in Class 7 and are all sad to leave! The children have all grown and learnt so much that it has been a real pleasure to be a part of it! Thank you for so many lovely gifts - they really are appreciated.
Our Mini Production! (13/07/2012)
We worked really hard this week practising for our year 3,4&5 celebration of our achievements which we performed on Thursday to a packed house! It was a great show and we all really enjoyed being a part of it. Our thanks to Mrs Williams for all her hard work in organising the show!
Picnic in the Park (13/07/2012)
We had a wonderful whole school trip to Tregrehan Gardens on Monday! The weather wasn't enough to dampen our spirits as we were joined by Fr David for an assembly in the park. We ate our lunches and had plenty of time to explore the gardens before heading back to school.
