Year 4 Kingswood Residential July 2016

WOW! What a weekend!

Thank you to everyone for being such stars at the weekend.  You were all a credit to our school. 

You all did so well with everything you did during the weekend and all the grown-ups are very proud of you for this. 

For a lot of you it was the first time you stayed away from home and this was your biggest challenge. 

Throughout the weekend you all showed imemnse bravery with everything that you all faced.

Well done to you all! What a wonderful way to end the year.  

 

I hope everyone has had a lovely summer holiday. 

In July some of Year 4 were lucky enough to experience a residential at Kingswood in Kent.  This was an amazing opportunity for all involved.  Thank you to all the adults that made this residential possible and thank you to all the children that made this a memorable experience.  Everyone gave 100% and faced indiviual fears which, I am thrilled to say were overcome.  

Please have a look through the gallery to see what your child took part in throughout the weekend.  

I am sorry for the delay in posting these pictures.  I had some trouble with uploading photos.  

I wish all of year 4 all the best in Year 5!

Year 4 Pop Up Experience

Year 4 have recently completed a pop-up book experience with John O’Leary.  The project consisted of 2 workshops where John worked with a group of children to create a pop-up book of their own.  The results were exceptional and John was really impressed with the quality of work that the children produced.  He was particularly impressed with the teamwork that was on show on the occasions that he wasn’t at school but the children were able to teach others the specific folds and constructions that they had been shown by John on previous visits.

 

Please click here to see a report by John and some pictures of the children’s work.

Skip-Hop Workshops

Skip- Hop Workshops.

 

We were so lucky to have Lee Collinson-James come to visit us from Skip-Hop.  Working with Years 2 to 6 Lee’s enthusiastic and entertaining approach had the children really fired up to learn new techniques and games.  It was great to see the wide variety of skills and manoeuvres being taught.  There were lots of opportunities to learn solo skipping moves, games to play with a partner and great team skipping games that required lots of concentration and energy.  Staff and pupils alike found the workshops so informative and we all worked together to gather a great stock of ideas for future PE and playground activities.

 

It has been wonderful to see students continuing and develop their skills at lunchtime and break.  With the support of our midday supervisors Stopsley children have become enthusiastic skippers and are going to make the most of the playground rope sets we have purchased.

Year 6 Courtroom

On Friday, Bolt class had their classroom transformed into a courtroom.

 

The SAT's based legal case scenarios were great fun; with the students having failed their SAT's and appealing against the decision. All the pupils were actively involved during the session, such as acting as the judge, jury, witness or defence barristers. We even had an angry parent and a journalist! Everyone had a role to play in the fun filled but informative sessions.

Year 5 Black History Month Raps

In Year 5 we have been learning about Martin Luther King Jr and how he affected change through his ‘I have a dream’ speech.

We thought about the unfairness and injustice we can still see around us and created our own raps based on his opening phrase.

Here are two examples:

 

I have a dream that poverty must go.

Rich people need to share, this they know.

Spreading the wealth around this Earth,

Showing everyone their true worth.

 

I have a dream, let's spread the money.

I'm not joking, this ain't funny.

Hunger and illness need be no more,

Let's share the wonga from shore to shore.

 

I have a dream to make the world a better place.

Bring us all together and make one race.

Sharing the riches with each other,

Making each one of us each other's brother.

 

 

By Champ - Year 5

Jeffreys Class

I have a dream that there won't be any poverty.

Rich people splashing their cash, that doesn't seem fair to me.

They have so much money that they bare,

Why don't they help poor people with their money that they should share?

 

I have a dream, while Bill Gates splashing his cash,

He didn't realise that the library's Windows computers have crashed!

Ronaldo in football, you have a lot of pace,

Don't let all that money go to waste!

David Cameron, you live in Number 10,

Why didn't you pay the firemen?!

Year 6 Visit the Construction Site of the Stopsley Respite Centre

Some of our children were given the opportunity to visit the construction site of the Stopsley Resite Centre, which is being built next to our school.  Here is what our children found out when visiting the site.

 

This centre will be opening at the end of June 2016. It is good for people in wheelchairs due to the fact that there is a lift.  It is going to be ysed for adults with disabilities. It gives them a chance to socialise, learn, play, make friends and much more!

 

It has cost £4.3millon to build this centre! Workers are certain it will have a positive effect for the community.  The people who work there will give good hospitality and they've had lots of experience.
