Thank you to all the children (and parents) who made a rainforest diorama for home learning.

We think they are amazing and you should all be very proud.

name those bones

Name those bones.
Name those bones.

I have a cranium, for my brainium.
And a mandible that's, my jawbone.
And there's my clavicle, that's my collarbone.
And my sternum keeps my ribs at home.

Name those bones.
Name those bones.

All my vertebrae are running down my back
From my head to my pelvic bone.
My femur fits in there, a leg bone I declare
It's the longest bone that I have grown.

Name those bones.
Name those bones.

Patella fits in next, that's my kneecap,
And below it are two more leg bones.
My tibia in front, my fibula in back,
Keep me running at school or home.

Name those bones.
Name those bones.

Now moving down my arm, let's start with humerus
Followed by two more arm bones.
There's an ulna and a radius
My ulna makes up my elbow bone.

Name those bones.
Name those bones.

All my fingers, all my toes,
They're called phalanges, everybody knows.
And on my back you'll find, two shoulder blades in line,
We call them scapula every time.

Name those bones.
Name those bones.

 

On Tuesday 29th November, Mr Musgrove came in and talked to the children about breathing.

We all really enjoyed his visit and he challenged us with a lot of mathematics. 


 Can you answer the question on the final slide?

Thursday 15th December 2016

Mrs Holmwood came into school this afternoon. Mrs Holmwood was a veterinary nurse and showed us a power point of animal x-rays. We found out lots of information and were surprised to learn how similar a dog's skeleton was to a human skeleton. We also found out that Labrador dogs eat very strange things!

Welcome back and Happy New Year.

We will be learning about electricity through making series circuits

and looking at forces through work on friction and magnetism.

This half-term we are enjoying learning Samba. To begin with we are starting to learn all the different instrument names and how to play them.

We are preparing to be tested - let's hope we get the names correct!

Visit our class pages where you might see more of each class in their samba sessions.

The children have been exploring circuits.

They have:

  • created series circuits,
  • found out what materials make good insulators and conductors of electricity
  • created their own switches to light up a series circuit.

Have you seen the optional home learning for our topic?

Just like a Roman

The first of our songs that need to be practised at home. Enjoy!

Just like a Roman

This clever cross-curricular song about the Romans offers a perfect vocal complement to KS2 topic work. Pertinent vocabulary, witty humour and a catchy cha cha rhythm, make this song a sure-fire winner. Boys in particular will love this brilliant song -- it is a descriptive history of Roman times with all the yucky bits left in!

Welcome back to the Summer term.

We have an exciting jam-packed term of events ahead.

 

Our first topic is

Neolithic Neighbours

 

This half-term we are using the novel 'Stig of the Dump' by Clive King

 to support our Guided Reading and as a class reader.

 

 

The children enjoyed learning about the Neolithic period with Tricia Zimmerman.

Thank you Tricia for the fantastic workshops!

On May 11th and 12th we visited Charmouth. Chris Pamplin took us fossil hunting.

We learnt how to find different fossils.

The teachers competed on the days to be the best fossil hunters.

Mrs Bellis with Foxes and Mrs Pennock with her half of Hedgehogs were the best at discovering fossils.

Mrs Kolbucaj and Mrs Denslow had lots of fun in the rain and wind still though!

Curriculum letter Summer 2017 - The World's Kitchen

Our trip to 'Sopley Fruit Farm' during Health and Wellbeing week.

 

We had a brilliant trip. All the children enjoyed the adventure of walking through the corn fields, climbing stiles, passing through kissing gates and being out in the countryside.

Once at the farm, the children took the opportunity to pick plums, raspberries, strawberries, gooseberries and tayberries filling their tummies.

 

The children returned to school rather fuller and much healthier having walked over 5 miles.
