Story Sacks

Today I met my new class, parents and carers. I told them all about my story sack and showed them all the games, puppets, literacy, Maths, science and artistic ideas created around my chosen book, The Twits. I was interested in their favorite books and we discussed some ideas for their sacks. I’m really looking forward to September and seeing the Story Sacks. I was thrilled to learn that some parents had organized a get together in the summer so they could all work on their story sacks and share ideas – what a brilliant start to new year ahead.

Year Four play wind instruments in assembly

Today, the Year fours demonstrated their musical abilities by playing the Chalumeau in assembly. They played four pieces of music with increasing difficulty, utilizing four different notes. At the end they sang Just A Small Town Girl by Journey. It was very impressive and they made me feel extremely proud. Well done everyone.

Rowan Karim Passes his Times Tables

After several attempts Rowan passed his times tables. I am so proud of you Rowan. You kept coming back week after week and didn’t give in. Great perseverance! It is a special moment when children pass but this was an extra special moment. I can’t wait for you to collect your award in assembly.

More books available at Watercliffe Meadow

Y4 children helped themselves to some brand new books that arrived today. The books are really ‘cool’ and they have funny and interesting titles like “On Your FARTS, Get Set, GO!” All the children in Year 4 picked a book and have to tell Mr French when they are returned so we can keep track of the books.
‘They are awesome and I will be reading a lot more of them’ says Carisha Hyatt. ‘If you like horror, I recommend BLOOD HOUSE’ says Connor Breedon.
‘If you like humor take yourself to the shops and buy I Am Not A Loser’ says Issiah Ramsey. Report by Year 4 DF

Listening to Mr French reading

We are coming to the end of the book The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night by Mark Haddon, best book in the world. It is a funny book but it learns you a lot about prime numbers. So far we are on prime number 233 – It is an adventure book.
Report from Issiah Ramsey
