Everyone – A poem by Molly Tuer

Last Friday, Molly showed us her Blue Peter badge in assembly. This was awarded for a poem that she had written.

Here is a copy of the poem for you all to enjoy.

Everyone’s looking one way,

Everyone’s looking another,

Everyone’s looking up and down,

Everyone’s looking all around.

Everyone’s playing on the beach and smiling in the sun,

Everyone’s swimming in the sea and having fun.

Everyone’s looking one way,

Everyone’s looking another,

Everyone’s looking up and down,

Everyone’s looking all around.

Cheerleading

Today saw our pupils take part in some taster cheerleading sessions held by Coach Chris.

The children had an amazing time learning routines and lifts.  Have a look through the gallery for some highlights.

If your child is over the age of 7, enjoyed the sessions today and would be interested in joining a Cheerleading club then please see the flyer that was sent home with the pupils today.

It’s safe to say that a great time was had by all.

Class 4 Design and Technology

Today we all made our own gift box using Computer Aided Design (CAD). Once the children had designed their net, they created it on the computer and printed out a paper prototype. Some children then needed to make some alterations before printing out their final product onto card. Inside their Christmas gift box was some yummy chocolate and orange shortbread. As well as developing their D&T skills, this project allowed them to practise perseverance and patience.

Well done Class 4 – You have created some amazing products and I am incredibly proud of you all!

Design and Technology in Class 4

This week in Class 4 we are looking at shell structures. We started off by evaluating current products and decided what we liked and would use for our own product. We decided to use exciting font, pictures and a colour scheme on our product. It was essential our food product had an ingredient list too.

Next, we had a go at making 3D shapes from nets.

We learnt that pyramids were a nightmare to make, tabs were essential and worked best when in a trapezium shape. We created our design criteria: Design, make and evaluate a gift box for a family member for Christmas.

Our last task of the day was to start designing our own gift box. The children have worked really hard and been extremely enthusiastic.

Well done Class 4

Maths in Class 4

Today in Class 4, we estimated the area of irregular shapes. We used the map at the front of our class text ‘How to Train your Dragon’.
