September 2018

The first month of the new school year is over. It seems to have gone past so quickly.

We have now all settled in and got used to the KS2 routines.

Our house captains have been elected.

Our school council has been selected through a very scary application and interview process – well done to all who volunteered for the job!

The topic for the first 3 weeks has been ‘Alien Invasion’. We have learnt lots of information about space and the Solar System. In small groups we learnt about a particular planet and created our own fact file of information. We have also created our own aliens and even used them to learn about classifying living things. We have just move onto the topic ‘Journey into the Unknown’ and can’t wait to use our imagination about travelling to an unknown planet to discover our aliens.

In numeracy we have secured our number knowledge and extended it by using larger numbers, some of us even began to use decimal numbers. The challenge was given when we had to use our knowledge to solve a variety of problems.

In outdoor PE we are trying to earn ourselves an award for athletics with Mr Ely.

We have also taken part in a Handball session. The coach taught us about the rules. Some of us are going to a competition to represent the school.

We are all looking forward to our trip to The National Space Centre and visiting Tim Peake’s capsule!
