Limited Edition Ice Pops on Sale Next Week!

On Tuesday the Woodpeckers will begin to sell their exclusive range of Ice Pops!

Because of the thorough research, design and make process they have followed, the Woodpeckers have decided to sell them for 50p each.

Stocks are limited, and once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Woodpecker Homework & Ice Pop Project News!

We didn’t get to write in Homework Diaries today, so just in case messages come home a bit muddled… I will set some Mathletics, there’s the usual minimum of 3 reads to an adult, plus to create a poster encouraging people to visit Irchester Country Park.

Project Ice Pop: We’ve done it, the marvellous creations have been made -thank you for the bits donated from home! Posters have been put up around the school, each class has been informed & we will sell them via Snack Shop from Tuesday – the Woodpeckers will get to try one of their own for free, after all a product has to be tested before being released to the public! Again, photo’s coming to the carousel a.s.a.p.

Hope you have a good weekend!

Kingfishers update

Hello!

This week we continued our learning of ‘Animals including Humans’ and investigated a range of endangered and extinct animals. We now know the difference between these two key words and can give a range of examples for each. We made some amazing top trumps and some ‘cup’ food chains to show our fantastic understanding.  In Literacy we finished writing persuasive letters, some fantastic Viewpoints were written by the Kingfishers. Finally, in maths we continued our work on Number and Place value including use of fractions and percentages.

Reminders:

Spellings will be tested on Monday and new spellings handed out the same day (hopefully).

Homework has been set on Mathletics for children to be completed by next Friday (07.07.17).

Our PE days are Tuesday (come to school in PE kit) and Friday with Mrs Dean. Two minute chats this week will be on Thursday with Lucie, Lyla, Rebecca and Will presenting.

Enjoy the weekend,

Woodpeckers’ Wonderfully Wet Wednesday!

A bit of rain didn’t stop the Woodpeckers from throwing themselves wholeheartedly into all the activities during our trip to Irchester Country Park yesterday. Terrific team work throughout the orienteering and full on enthusiasm & interest on the woodland walk – any moaning didn’t come from the children!

Thank you for such an enjoyable day!

Watch out for photographs on the carousel…

Puffins’ Activity Day – Thursday

Just a quick reminder that Thursday is our activity day. All Puffins will need to wear school uniform and bring a pack up / picnic lunch. You will also need a nut free snack and a drink to take with you to Kimbolton so you will also need a bag or rucksack to put them in.

End of the day arrangements do not need to be changed.

Please keep an eye on the weather – sun cream or waterproof mac?!

Thank you

Mrs Burrin

Woodpecker Trip to Irchester Country Park

Good afternoon Woodpecker parents!

A few bits of information regarding our trip on Wednesday: 

*footwear -because of the activities we will be doing the Woodpeckers

need to wear trainers & socks or similar (no sandals even if it’s sunny). 

*clothing – sensible/practical trousers suitable for the activities with school

uniform on the top ½ (with the school logo on if possible). 

*weather – it is currently not looking good for Wednesday L, so a raincoat is a

must as we are outside all day! 

*lunches & drinks – everyone needs a pack lunch for the trip, please can they have an extra drink

or two as well. 

*please cross your fingers for an improvement in the weather- but we’ll have fun whatever! 

Many thanks,

Mrs Mallace

 

Kingfishers weekly update

Hello!

This week we continued our learning of ‘Animals including Humans’ and investigated how animals adapt to their surroundings by designing our own animal. This then moved on to work on food chains which will continue into next week. In Literacy we began writing our persuasive letters on whether Zoos are good or bad – some fantastic ideas and opinions have been expressed so well done Kingfishers! Finally, in maths we have been looking at ordering decimals and rounding numbers to their nearest whole numbers, tens and hundreds.

Reminders:

Spellings will be tested on Monday and new spellings handed out the same day (hopefully).

Homework has been set in Purple books and so they need to be handed in next Friday. The homework was given to the children on Wednesday and includes two tasks. Task 1 is a weekly food diary – the children should note down the foods and drinks they have had throughout the day. Task 2 involves the children looking at a range of food packaging and discovering what goes into our foods.

Our PE days are Tuesday (come to school in PE kit) and Friday with Mrs Dean. Two minute chats this week will be on Thursday with Ellen, Zoe, Amelia and Ronnie presenting.

Enjoy the weekend,

Robins’ Grafham adventure

What a fantastic day the children had in Grafham forest!  They were brilliant and loved every minute; we went on a mini beast hunt, built shelters with tables inside and places to sit, the children went on a hat hunt then had picnics in their shelters.  After lunch we made forest faces with clay on trees and decorated these with leaves, twigs, acorns, moss and other woodland treasures and then the fairies texted Forest Ian asking us to keep them cool by building shelters for them and a fairy ring ready for their party tomorrow as it’s the longest day!

The children were so well behaved – they were really cool in the forest and we only felt the heat as we walked back to meet you!  We hope they sleep well, after they’ve told you all about their adventures 🙂

Puffins’ Class in Action

Thank you so very much for attending our Class in Action today! A total of 24 family members came and shared our learning with us. The children had great fun listening to the adults’ offerings for the Sentence of the Day – the alliteration was fabulous. The drumming was excellent too and I know that the children were very excited about showing off their skills.

I believe that I am still owed two minutes of break time by some adults who talked through the Register!
