Black history week (19.10.17)
We can not believe that we have reached the final week of our first half term already. Everyone has settled into the class well and are making amazing progress. We are very proud of them all.
Carrying on with our topic of superheroes, we have celebrated black history week, with some truly remarkable superheroes including Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, all of which have greatly influenced our World today.
In Science we conducted an experiment to see which material is the best thermal insulator for ice. Some very tricky column addition sums in Maths and completed our newspaper reports in English. Finally finishing the week playing netball with Mr Bone.
Have a fantastic half term break.
Police and Firefighters (12.10.17)
Wow what an exciting week we have had. First there was a surprise visit from the local Police. We learnt all about the different equipment they use and had a go trying on the uniform and sitting in their van. Then later in the week the Fire brigade visited with the fire engine. They talked about how they put out a fire and what equipment is on the engine. It was so interesting listening to all our visitors.
We have also planned a Science experiment, completed lots of addition sums in Maths and written a newspaper article about a fire disaster in English.
It has been a busy but brilliant week.
Enjoy the sunny weekend.
Harvest Festival (5.10.17)
We celebrated Harvest Communion on Monday and would like to thank everyone that kindly donated food.
Our own BB superhero, did a presentation to the children on Tuesday. Mr Daysh is a RNLI volunteer and spoke to the children about the RNLI and the amazing work they do in rescuing people, out at sea. We then learnt about Grace Darling who received a RNLI silver medal for her bravery in 1830.
In Science we looked at the water cycle and found out about condensation and evaporation and in English we are now focusing on newspaper reports and the main elements of them.
We finally finished a busy week playing netball with Gary.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Real life superheroes (29.9.17)
We meet some real life superheroes this week including the Cornwall Air Ambulance and the Children's Hospice Southwest. It was really interesting to see what they do and how they help people in Cornwall.
Our Science experiment was to investigate `states of matter'. We had a bowl of ice and calculated how long it would take to melt in our classroom. Which was quicker than we first thought.
We finished writing our innovated story based on the Incredibles and have sewn our own superhero capes with logo.
We also looked very smart for our individual photos and enjoyed playing netball with Gary on Friday.
The end to a wonderful week.
Have a brilliant weekend.
What a wonderful week, everyone has worked really hard and are settled into their new class.
Our writing is coming along well, we have innovated our class story of the Incredibles. We have invented some brilliant new superheroes and monsters in our stories.
Solid and liquid gases were our experiments in Science, which was amazing.
Friday ended on a high with a Zumbathon challenge, tiring but lots of fun.
The Incredibles (14.9.17)
The children are really enjoying learning our class story about the Incredibles and how they defeat the Iron Bot robot. We have also been writing an instruction text on a `recipe to make a superhero.'
In Maths we have learnt about place value.
During singing assembly, we had a voice coach come in and show us how to do some simple singing activities to warm up our voices.
Our PE lesson on Friday's with Gary is always lots of fun, (especially dodging the rain). We are practising our netball skills, which can be a bit tricky. We have also designed our own superhero logos and are beginning to cut them out of material and sew them.
Have a good weekend.
Welcome to Phoenix and the new school year. The children have settled into their new classes really well this week and have worked hard.
Our focus this term is Superheroes and our class story is The Incredibles, which we are starting to learn.
We have also designed our own superhero logo which we will be sewing onto our own capes.
The children have also been given their reading books, spellings and homework this week.
Well done again to everyone for a fantastic first week, have a great weekend.
