We were really lucky today as Sunita came to our school to teach us about how Hindus live their life, pray and celebrate, The morning started with an assembly where she told us about the story of Rama & Sita. The children loved listening to this story and taking part with actions & sound effects.
For Juniper's Christmas enterprise, we have made Christmas Rag Wreaths and Christmas pots.
Wreaths are £3 and Pots are £2.50 Each pupil has made one of each.
If you would like to buy your child's items, they will be available soon to buy on Scopay or by bringing cash into school.
As part of our work on The Wolf Wilder book by Katherine Rundell, we created a blackout poem based on one of the characters dancing. Blackout poetry is when you take a written piece of text from a book and redact words, in order to come up with your very own poetry!
Welcome to the new cookery club, tonight we used the rubbing in method to make our pizza base then we had to chop, slice and grate other ingredients for the topping. Everyone went home to enjoy pizza for tea!
Juniper class worked with their peers to create an emotive poem for Remembrance Day. The emotive language and word choices created wonderful poems- Well Done Juniper.
These poems are displayed on our display in the school hall and were shared in our Remembrance assembly.
Juniper Class took part in our second PE Wow event of the year, this time focusing on learning and developing their archery skills. During this event we focused on 4 areas: safety, distance, sharing and scoring. We all improved our skills by the end of the session!
In Science Juniper class investigated the conductivity of different materials. They set up a simple circuit with a battery and bulb, and used different metals to complete the circuit. They observed the brightness of the bulb with each material and measured the light levels.
The children enjoyed a range of exciting craft activities, spooky fun and delicious food at our recent Halloween Event after school.
C- I enjoyed making all the different things. I liked making pumpkins and ghosts.
L- I made a paper bat with Mrs. Hill. It was tricky, but a lot of fun.
E- I made a haunted house and a Happy Halloween card.
M- The hotdogs were yummy and I also liked decorating my biscuit.
H- It was good fun to dress up. I danced to scary music too.
P- Mrs. Brady showed me how to make a spooky spoon ghost.
W- I enjoyed myself and would like to do it again next year.
Another fantastic tournament with our Year 4 and 5 football team. The team were amazing, played with skill and dedication - could not be more proud. Thanks for the support. Great evening!
Juniper class learnt about prepositions using a catchy song! We then had to identify prepositions within sentences and explain what sort of preposition they are: Location, Time or movement. We may be coming home singing the song!
Juniper Class predicted and then investigated which materials would dissolve in water to make a solution. We predicted which we thought were soluble and which were insoluble. Sugar is soluble whereas cooking oil is insoluble!
Recently, some of our Juniper and Willow pupils have participated in an exciting new project at Stanford! They have begun their Anti-Bullying Ambassador training - a marvellous project delivered by The Diana Award. They spent the day with Clio, a representative from The Diana Award, who worked with the children to help them understand how they can spread the message of helping and supporting one another, abolishing bullying and feeling safe and happy at school and online.
Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors will help to train other children and each month will be working with Mrs Jones, Learning Mentor, to continue embedding their training across the school.

In Juniper Class, we performed 'Livin' On A Prayer' to Barley Class.
We really enjoyed learning this song, eating our cakes and raising money for such a worthwhile cause.
Y5 enjoy their French lessons. Today we looked at classroom items. It was quite tricky as the children had to remember whether the items were feminine or masculine. Well done Year 5!
On our hook day we explored different types of extreme weather. We considered what made a good weather report and enjoyed role playing reporting weather in small groups.
It has been fantastic to welcome Juniper class back. They even brought the sunshine with them.
