What a fantastic term it has been; getting to know all of you (many of you again!) and making great progress in our learning all term long.
I have asked that you push yourselves every day to be the best person you can be and I can really see some great developments in all of you.
It has been so nice to receive warm messages of festive joy and some gifts too - they are all VERY generous and they are all VERY appreciated.
I sincerely hope you all have the most enjoyable and lovely Christmas and spend the time relaxing with your loved ones.
Take care; see you in 2019!
We hope you enjoyed your christmassy themed time with the other KS2 members of your house.
There was some good friendly competition going on!
Well done to Hastings who were very well organised and friendly towards their peers in the Elder Tree Classroom.
Further to Mrs. Featonby's assembly a few weeks ago, we wanted to remind you about the Premier League's poetry competition...
The Premier League want children to write poems based on the theme of diversity, using inspiration from the poem written specially for Premier League Writing Stars, Beautifully different, Wonderfully the same by Joseph Coelho. The poem and subject encourage us to think of ways to celebrate similarities and differences that bring us together, and these are themes that run through this programme.
The judging panel includes former Premier League footballer Rio Ferdinand, singer and songwriter Olly Murs, Waterstone’s Children’s Laureate Lauren Child, poet Joseph Coelho. Casia Wiliam, current Bardd Plant Cymru (Welsh-language Children’s Poet Laureate) will guest judge all Welsh-language entries. All judging will be overseen by National Literacy Trust Director Jonathan Douglas.
There will be a top overall prize and 10 prizes for each category (Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2) in each area. There will also be prizes for the best entries in the Welsh language at Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
Prizes for overall winners:
This week we have really focused in on adding and subtracting fractions: can you write any questions that are similar to the ones we looked at today and solve them?
Today, the class were introduced to a competition to win a visit to London...
To enter, you have to:
"Tell us what you think makes your school rock in 100 words or fewer! Whether it’s an inspiring teacher or the amazing sports facilities and you could win a VIP trip to see School of Rock the Musical for your whole class... plus a chance to talk to the cast after the show! "
THINK ABOUT HOW YOU CAN BE CREATIVE WITH WORDS, TO STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD...
ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER: the man who brought rock and romance to the stage, is back with a new heart-stirring hit. SCHOOL OF ROCK “is not a lesson in air guitar: it’s rock’n’roll” (The Times) and “An inspiring jolt of energy, joy and mad skillz!” (Entertainment Weekly). The Mail on Sunday raves “Full marks to all concerned but specially to Andrew Lloyd Webber, who goes to the top of
Based on the hit film, this hilarious new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar- shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. While teaching these pint-sized prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for the school’s beautiful, but uptight headmistress, helping her rediscover the wild child within. The Daily Telegraph says that
School of Rock is “The most enjoyable few hours money can buy”.
Featuring 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and all the original songs from the movie, this high-octane smash delivers face-melting guitar riffs and touching romance in equally awesome doses! “A rabble-rousing rock score: Lloyd Webber’s most vivacious for years” (The Observer) and Time Out New York raves, “SCHOOL’s in – FOREVER!”
The prompt for this week will involve lots of thinking, I think! It is:

Things to consider:
Continuing work on circuits...
Last week we managed to do some great work on circuits and today we continued to look at circuits and we discussed about 'parallel circuits' which are used in most houses and electrical items that we use today.
Why are they considered more useful than 'series' (simple) circuits?
Try the quiz out on this website if you can and let me know how you got on.
