Class 13 have been producing some beautiful art work with Mrs Green as part of GBlock. They have learnt to use lots of different techniques and have even been doing some salt painting!
Class 13 love doing French as part of GBlock! Here they are learning the french names for clothes!
Well done to our house point winners this week. You have all demonstrated many of the learning aliens and you have led by example. This weeks totals were:
Planets: 1930 (3rd)
Comets 1447 (4th)
Suns: 2077 (2nd)
Stars: 2199 (1st)
Today we tried a new maths starter. The children worked in groups and each member took it in turns, to spend 30 seconds looking at an angle poster before going back to their team and drawing what they could remember! There was some great communication between team members and they were extremely competitive!
I was impressed with some of the groups who had a very close match to the original picture!
Leah, along with her friends, has set up a learning club in Year 5. She has set up this club to support her peers with any learning they want to get better at. She runs this club herself on her break time and lunch time and dedicates her time to helping others learn!
Here they are choosing whether to practise times tables or reading. I am looking forward to next week when they learn about fractions! Well done Leah!
Class 13 did some more collaborative reading today but this time new children tried out the role of ‘coach’!
These children scored full marks on this months arithmetic test – 32 out of 32!
Our class average has also risen to 25! A huge well done to these and the rest of Class 13!
Lucas has produced a lovely picture based on Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. He has illustrated the different finch beaks which were used for eating different foods. A fantastic drawing Lucas – Well done!
Ava J and Olyvia did some amazing angles homework at homework club! They continue their learning from maths by drawing and labelling angles. I was really impressed – well done!
I have been made aware of a potential closure of the memorial park due to the forecast of high winds.
The Thorne Moorends Town Council Facebook page states
‘Current forecasts suggest that we may experience wind gusts of up to 56mph overnight and tomorrow. If such winds do arise, due to the high number of trees in the park we may need to close access to Thorne Memorial Park for safety reasons. Access to the café however will be maintained.
We know that a number of parents use the park as a shortcut to Green Top Primary School so please potentially plan your journeys on the basis that access to the park may be restricted.’
