Bonkers Hats

The Children in Topaz had the opportunity to work with Sarah Evans, a local artist from 18 hours and the Storytelling Festival.  All children are welcome to come along to the parade which starts at 3 p.m on Sunday 11th November from the Stade.

 

World War 1 in Topaz Class.

The children have been learning about World War 1.  They have looked at artefacts from World War 1 and had the opportunity to dress up in some replica clothing.  The children also put together a short play for Worship and learnt some WW1 songs.  They will be reenacting this in Messy Mass on 30th October at 3.30pm.

The children then spent time looking on the Roll of Honour website to find soldiers that lived close to their house or street.  They then sent posters out to these homes so they can be displayed in the home of that soldier.

Fabulous P.E

We have had the opportunity to take part in some amazing P.E lessons this term with coaches coming in to teach the children and the adults. The children have had an amazing time and so have we.  We have enjoyed, tag rugby, cricket and hockey.  We are looking forward to gymnastics next term.

 

Year 4 Rock Pooling Trip

On Wednesday 18th July 2018, Year 4 went to Goat Ledge to do some rock pooling and other beach activities. We had an amazing time, as you can see from the pictures below.

Thankyou to the PTFA for providing and delivering ice lollies for the children to enjoy in their break, and to the parents who were able to come and help.

 

A very exciting letter…

In Year 4 this term, one of our Home Learning tasks was to write a letter to the Prime Minister about an environmental issue. Many of the children wrote moving and well thought out letters, but Emily went one step further. She decided to actually send her letter ( which raised the issue of bee conservation and protection) off to Downing Street. We were all excited to find that one of Theresa May’s Correspondence Officers actually wrote back!

In his reply, the Correspondence Officer thanked Emily for her letter, and informed her that he had passed it on the the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, who will hopefully be able to respond to Emily’s letter with some suggestions for what we can do to combat the environmental issue she raised.

 

 

Coral’s Stunning Starter

On the first day of the Summer term, Coral completed a TASC (Thinking Actively in a Social Context) day. These days are designed to help the children to learn how to work better in groups and apply their knowledge of the wider world to their learning.

This time round the children were tasked with creating a structure from plastic bottles as part of our Caring for the Environment Learning Journey. As you can see from the images, the children had a lot of fun making their structures!
