Safer Internet Day

Today the Starfish and Rainbow Fish came together to take part in a special presentation from some of the Swordfish Class, who talked to the children about how to stay safe when online. They acted out the story of Zap and Zoom which highlighted the importance of never sharing personal information online.

Make time for music

Today these children performed in front of the whole school. They have all been learning how to play a musical instrument, some for a few years and some for only a few months. It was a very impressive performance from everyone and they should all feel very proud of their achievements.

If your child felt  inspired by what they saw today and wish to begin playing a musical instrument next year, please fill in the leaflet that will be sent home this week and return to school before the end of June.

Outdoor Gymnastics

Everyone had great fun today learning different gymnastics positions and moves including the dish, pike, bunny hop, shoulder stand and bridge. The children were able to demonstrate good poise and buddy strength to hold these positions. I think there may be a few Olympic gymnasts in Starfish a Class!

Mini-Beast Hunting

This afternoon the children were excellent detectives, hunting out an array of different insects that live in the school grounds. Once they had found an interesting collection, they then had the opportunity to carefully study them using the magnifying glasses.

This week in maths, the children have been very busy investigating capacity. They have had to make predictions on which containers would have the biggest capacity and then measure them accurately by reading the scales on measuring jugs. A few of the scales proofed a little tricky but everyone was fantastic at persevering.

Internet Research

In English we have been learning all about non-chronological reports. So now the children are preparing to write their own report on an animal of their choice. In doing so they have been using the laptops to research their chosen animal and find interesting facts about them. It has been a great opportunity for children to work collaboratively together to share the facts that they have found.

Author Visit

Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from Briony Dixon, a children’s author. She shared one of her books with us before we took part in an exciting spy themed workshop. The children thoroughly enjoyed trying on a range of interesting disguises and then became very imaginative designing the contents of their very own spy suitcases.

Skittles Fractions

To help the children further their understanding of fractions, today they were excited to use Skittles as a way to find a fraction of an amount. This was a great way to ensure that all parts of the fractions were equal as the children were very careful to make sure that everyone got the same amount!
