Juniper class had fun reading and preparing a poem to the rest of the class. We added in actions and variety our voice and tone! We really enjoyed this type of activity and want to continue practising our drama skills!
A magical evening for our Carol service with our year 5 and 6 pupils! Wonderful singing and performances celebrating Christmas and Peace. Thank you to all for joining us in our Carol singing- we wish you a very Merry Christmas!
Today we took some of our KS2 girls to play a friendly football match with Wybers Wood Academy. We continue to raise the profile of girls football and this was another fantastic opportunity for the girls to showcase their skills!
The girls played brilliantly, with many goals saved and even more goals attempted. Their teamwork and skills were outstanding and showed the great Stanford football team they have become! Well done girls!! 🌟
Humberside Fire and Rescue Service came into school to talk to the children about how to be safe on the roads, especially through using seat belts in cars and wearing helmets when riding our bikes. Something as simple as this can save lives and it's so easy to do.
Chartwells came to visit Year 6 to discuss healthy eating and demonstrate some recipes. Gavin, the head chef, talked about different food types such as protein, carbohydrates and vitamins. The children took part in a food tasting session and tried bubble and squeak. This was made up of chicken, carrots, peas, potato and cheese. This was all made up from food from the day before to show that you don't need to waste any food. After tasting the food, many of the children changed their mind on the food and enjoyed the dish.
A: It was scrummy and I don't usually like carrots.
E: It was delicious, especially the cheese topping.
Juniper class enjoyed celebrating odd socks day yesterday by wearing a range of crazy socks to show our individuality!
I- I enjoyed being able to show that we’re all different
O- I like wearing odd socks everyday!
As it is road safety week, today in Juniper class, we had a go at stop motion animation! We watched a few videos, came up with our own ideas on how to explain stop motion and then took hundreds of photos!
P- I liked working as a team but making sure to only move the object tiny bit at a time was difficult!
L- I really enjoyed using stop motion to help learn about road safety, I can't wait to see the video altogether
As a part of this project the children were invited to Centre4 to learn about community businesses, see them in action and find out what a difference these businesses can make to our community. There are some fantastic local businesses out there which enrich the lives of so many. We can’t wait to see what project our children develop!
Today we had two pupils from Juniper Class showing their achievements from karate! They explained how the belts are ordered and demonstrated a few different moves too! They said they enjoy going to karate a couple nights a week, answered some questions, and we all learnt a few new words in relation to karate!
We had the pleasure of having some Vikings in school! They showed us how Vikings live and all sorts of facts and information about them. We then staged what it would be like to be on a long boat and we re-enacted what it would be like to loot other places. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed the Vikings visiting!
Year 5 and 6 pupils had a visit from The Principle and SLT team at John Whitgift on Tuesday. They spoke to the pupils about their secondary Academy , how a typical school day looks like and what subjects they have to offer. Pupils were then able to ask any questions they had.
Today we watched Harvest Live Carbon-Crunching carrots! We learnt about how carrots are grown and how they are cleaned for supermarkets.
O- I didn’t realise just how dirty carrots were and how much they are processed for supermarkets!
H- I didn’t know that the wonky carrots were made into a powder.
S- There are so many different bugs in the soil, like nematodes that help the carrots.
C- I can’t believe how many ways carrots are used.
Juniper Class enjoyed a trip to the library. Ms Wink told us why library's are important and where we can find different types of books. On the right was fiction and the left non-fiction! We spent 15 minutes looking for the perfect 2 books to take back to our classroom. All of the children then sat quietly reading their new books!
Today we immersed ourselves in our Wild Weather topic. We looked at the different climates on Earth and then went on a fact hunt to solidify our knowledge. We then created some volcano artwork and watched a volcano erupt with the help of coke and mentos!
