What a wonderful time 3HJ had enjoying the recent snow day! Take a look and the magnificent snowmen and ladies constructed by some of the children in our crew! Top effort which certainly deserves a lovely mug of hot chocolate!
Well done to all the children in years 5 and 6 for their tremendous hard work this term. They have been on a journey, exploring the development of the camera and how the world has changed as a result of iconic events, remarkable people and even several disasters!
Watch the video here to gain insight into their expedition and let them introduce you to the culmination of our journey: their rather impressive final product!
This week has seen the start of our writing for the final product. We have worked extremely hard in pairs to complete different paragraphs all about moths and bees. 3HJ then critiqued each paragraph together and redrafted. The quality of writing throughout has ben phenomenal and all children have blown me away! We are so excited to reveal our products you all! Watch this space!
Here’s the gang!. A quite brilliant effort from Ronnie who is this week’s superhero – he has really tried his best in every element of his learning. Alas, we the turn to Evie and Evie. The first has amassed a quite ridiculous 6661 coins on TT Rockstars over the last 7 days and the latter, has shown tremendous resilience and effort in dealing with a plethora of difficult math’s problems. Well done to all and have a great weekend everybody.
This week we have experimented with ‘Silent discussions’.
The children had to decide whether a word was either positive or negative. In our silent discussion the children were free to move around the room and write their thoughts next to the word, enabling all children to have a voice.
3HJ really enjoyed trialing this method of learning and it will definitely be used in the future.
Congratulations to all our winners…
Well big well doe to Dalton for receiving the most votes when our Crew filled in their individual nominations for this week’s Children’s Champion. One always feels that a nomination from your peers just means that little bit more…

If it’s good enough for our children, its good enough for our staff too… Everything that you are doing in class, we are doing too!
We have also be revisiting our Core Values that we set together as a whole community 5 years ago. Here we are unpicking exactly what it looks like to embrace our values and identify our own HOWLs – Habits of Work and Learning. HOWLS help us demonstrate how we are working to be the best version of ourselves or as we like to say, “Being the BEST version of ME!”
