This week in Reception

We have had a busy week in Reception.

We are learning about the story of Owl Babies.  The children are learning to retell the story using a story map to help them.

We have learnt about where Owls live and went to the woods to make nests for the owls to live in using sticks, leaves and feathers.

Whilst we were in the woods we used our Space, Shape and Measure skills to look at the shapes and sizes of the different Autumn leaves.

In our Phonics work we have been learning new letters and sounds.  We have even been practicing writing the grapheme; s and a.

The Start of Year One…

Sorry it has taken a while, but here they are! Our first few weeks in Year 1…

There are still some parent consent forms that I am missing, so if you haven’t filled one in yet please call into the office or ask me for a new form and then I will make sure that there are pictures of your child on here too.

 

 

Romans everywhere!

The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy visited Year 4 to do some Roman drama.

We acted out a scene from the Celtic revolt led by Boudicca.

Can’t wait to show you the results in our assembly.

 

We made Roman bread too,

Using a clay oven just like the Romans.

 Mmmmm….

 

 

Year 4 Roman Experience

Year 4 went on a trip to the Dewa Roman Experience in Chester. We all dressed as Romans. Not only were our costumes a hit at the Dewa Center but many tourists stopped to take our photo as we marched through Chester. We looked  GOOD…

We carried our Marlfields Standard – just like the Romans of old.

Our commander was fierce!! And he had a big voice too! Watch out Mrs Barns!

We were fierce in our training session!

Look at us in formation!!

The traffic stopped as we marched ‘ Sin, sin, sin-dex, sin!’  What a great day.

Musical Theatre Workshop at Clonter

On Wednesday 13th September, Year 5 and 6 were treated to a day of song and music at Clonter Opera Theatre in Congleton and we all had so much fun!

Our first activity was to make a mini design set- the children could choose for their theme to be either: Year 3000, World War I, Island themed or Winter Wonderland and without any question, all of the Year 6’s chose their theme as World War I (which is very fitting as we are doing World War II as our topic this term!) All of the children did a fabulous job and one of our teams even won the best set design and were presented with a certificate- well done to the winning team

PS: Sorry for the delay in posting this.. we’ve been experiencing technical difficulties…

What a Wonderful Year!

Thank you for a lovely year and all of the very nice presents that I received. I look forward to having you all again for your last year in primary school. Hope that you all have a lovely summer remember to try to have time to read as much as you can and keep learning. See you in September! Miss Sowry 🙂

All Around the World…France

As part of our focus on France this week, we have made our own version of the Eiffel Tower. Whilst we have been working away and playing we have been listening to traditional French music. This morning, some of the children made up their own dances to the music – they had so much fun using their physical development and expressive arts and design skills!

For snack today, we have eaten baguettes with Camembert and Brie… some of us love trying all of these new things.
