This week, the children in class 6 were surprised to find that their classroom had been transformed into a spooky haunted house, complete with chilling sound effects and the odd hidden spider!
Mrs Stonier created a wonderful atmosphere to stimulate the children's imagination, ready for their weekly 'Big Write'.
We watched a short video clip which took us on a journey around a haunted house. The children thought of some amazing words to describe the feelings, sights, sounds and smells of the setting. After a short discussion, they were ready to write independently, by candlelight, of course!
On Friday, class 6 were lucky enough to have the opportunity to watch Team GB competing in a speed skating competition at the Nottingham Ice Arena. We made posters to support the team and had a wonderful day waving them and shouting encouragement. The phrase 'Go GB!' could be heard for miles around!
On Wednesday 16th December 2015 we held our termly achievement assembly to reward those children in each class who have been recognised for their excellent progress or their behaviour. Prizes as always were reading books, especially selected for each child. Well done to all those children who received awards - it is always difficult for teachers to decide as so many pupils could be chosen!
Look below at how many children received their bronze medal for full attendance during the Autumn Term! They will now aim for their silver medal in Spring Term and other children will try and get their Bronze award.
All full attenders were entered into a raffle to win a bike. Ashandro from Class 4 won this fabulous prize donated by Aquinos, a local charity which is promoting good attendance. Huge thanks to them.
The Achievement Assembly was followed by our annual Nativity with cast from Years One and Two and narrators from Year 6. They told the Christmas story beautifully.
