Y5 Trip to Gadespring

On Thursday last, Year 5 enjoyed some magnificent autumnal weather down at the old cress beds, now known as Gadespring and part of the Box Moor Trust.  We did some bird watching, pond dipping (removing 2 unwelcome crayfish visitors from the USA who destroy the mini ecosystems within ponds by eating it all ) and a minibeast hunt, where we found lots of small frogs.   With Waterways Experiences, we spent time navigating the canal, steering the boat and learning how a lock works, taking it in turns to open and close them.

One child said that it was better than Chessington!

Imaginary Creature Homework (Spiderwick)

Hello Year 6!

Enjoy the surprisingly snowy weather, but do stay safe and warm!

Because we won’t be in school on Monday, it’s likely that we won’t finish our writing topic this side of Christmas, so I’ve extended the homework deadline to Thursday.  Please use some of the time that you are not in school on Monday to start or complete your homework, giving it the amount of time it really needs.

If you get really bored, there’s always some tables or spellings to practice ……!!

Year 3/4 Football Tournament at South Hill

On Saturday 20th May we attended the South Hill year 3 and 4 football tournament. It was a great day with 11 teams entered into the tournament. All of our group matches were played on the Stamford Bridge pitch. Our first game was against Kings Langley (B) team and we won 1-0 with a goal from J. Next we played a good game against the South Hill (A) team and after a great effort we lost 1-0. In the next game we bounced back with a 1-0 win against Galley Hill (A) team with a powerful goal from Z. We then met with Westfield (A) and with a fantastic goal from J we managed to end the game with a draw.The last game we played was against Bridgewater and with a goal from J and Z and own goal by the other team we won with an easy 3-0 win. We then had a nervous wait to see if we got through to the semi-finals…… And after a short wait we found out that we had come second in our group and were going through to the semi-finals.

We went on to play a semi-final match against Galley Hill (A) on the Wembley pitch. After a tough game we won with the score 2-0 after two great goals from Z. We were through to the finals and our last game was against South Hill (A) with Mr Brathwaite as their coach. It was a great game and with one of our goals being disallowed (If only we had goal line technology!!) We lost with the score 1-0. We had some fantastic goals saved by O and worked well as a team to achieve good results. It was a great day had by all who attended and we all received runners up medals. A big thank you to J and Z’s dads for helping with coaching and managing the team on the day.

Fantastic Fractions and Mystery Stories!

The clues in the tile!!! In Year 3 we’ve been looking at fractions during  maths. Mainly the tenths. We’ve also learnt about equivalent fractions for example, 1/2 is the same as 3/6, 4/8,  5/10 or 6/12. Going back to tenths, we know that 0/10 =0%=0.0 and so on.

Again, the clues in the tile! Also in English we’ve been learning about mystery stories, one we’ve been focusing the most on is ‘In the back seat.’ We’ve enjoyed text mapping the story, we had split it into 10 parts and worked in partners to act it out and draw it too.

Fun French in Year 3

In French we have been learning about animals. For example, a guinea pig is un cochon d’lnde. We have a Year 3 French Art Gallery where we put pictures or creations made by us. We also have a French Star each week. To earn the French badge we must try hard, have a go at everything, not give up so easily and try our best when using our French accent. We love our French lessons and can’t wait to learn more!!


Friday 10 March 2017

all about French

In French we have been learning about how to talk in French.

Like saying the numbers 1-10 here is a example, 1 is un.

We have also learnt colours for example, yellow is Jaune.

See we have done lots of French and we know lots more of it.

We started doing things about the Eifle Tower.

School Gate SET supporting SCIENCE in schools

We were delighted to have been joined by Jan, Lisa and Susanne from School Gate SET.  Children were given the challenge of creating a bridge to span 30cm from K’Nex materials.  They were encouraged to ask questions to facilitate their design and consider what features they needed to include, whether for functional or aesthetic reasons.  Cooperation, negotiation and determination were all needed in vast quantities and as you can see, the designs and successes varied.

If you would like to know more about their work, please visit their website – you may know someone who could also help promote Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths in schools.
