Marvellous Magnets

This week, Rhino class conducted a fair test to find the strongest type of magnet.

The children planned an investigation which involved seeing how many paper clips each magnet could hold. Before testing each of the different types of magnet, the children predicted which they thought would be the strongest.

After the they had finished, they had some quite surprising results which led to a great discussion in class.

A Perfect Performance

On Monday, pupils from Myddle and Baschurch attended Young Voices.

We set out at midday and arrived in good time ready for the rehearsals before the main event at 7pm.

With performances from likes of The Shires, Ruti (2018 winner of the Voice) and the legendary Tony Hadley, We knew we were in for a real treat. The children were in fine voice too and sang and danced their hearts out. It was an amazing experience. To hear over 6000 children singing together as one is something quite special.

Well done everyone.

Year 3 & 4 Gymnastics Competition

Today, 5 girls from Rhino class took part in a gymnastics competition at Baschurch. As part of the team, each had to perform a floor routine and two vaults.

The girls performed brilliantly, as individuals and as a team, and out of the five school competing, they finished in first place.

This was a fantastic achievement and we are extremely proud of the girls.

Well done to: Ariana, Lilly, Maisie, Amelia and Isabella.

Worship Council

Today, the Worship Council delivered their first assembly to the rest of the school.

In line with the value of this half term, truth, the children shared experiences from their training day, demonstrated some of the practical activities they took part in and shared the newly created Federation Prayer.

The assembly was a real success and we were all really proud of the pupils and how hard they have worked together. It isn’t easy to stand in front of the whole school, but all members of the worship council spoke with confidence. Well done.

Describing a setting

This week, Rhino class have looked primarily at character description but finished the week by exploring a setting. To tie in with our class text of Fantastic Mr Fox, the pupils explored a woodland setting in detail.

By imagining themselves in the setting, they constructed phrases using their senses and prepositions to help explain where they could see, hear or smell details.

All this preparation should lead to some excellent descriptive writing next week.

Worship Council

Yesterday, a group of pupils completed their training to become members of the Worship Council. After applying by letter to Mrs Williams for the position of a Worship Councillor back in December, seven pupils were selected to represent the school.

Along with pupils from Baschurch, they all took part in a training session with Alex Wolvers (Christian Distinctiveness Advisor) and Rev. Clayton. As part of the Worship Council, pupils will both plan and deliver worship at each school. During the training, they learnt how to create practical activities by taking part in active praying. The children really enjoyed these activities and were able to think deeply about local and world issues.

The pupils also worked together to create a Federation Prayer, which now can be used by the councillors and pupils at both schools.

The day was a real success and all pupils now can’t wait to get started with the planning and preparations for their first worship in school. The day ended with the pupils receiving a certificate to commemorate their achievements of being selected and successfully completing their training as a member of the Worship Council.

Well done to Isla C, Amy C, Cassius M, Sophie C, Alex F, Charley M and Leo M.

Christmas Fayre Success

Thank you to all those that attended today’s Christmas Fayre. It was lovely to see so many children and their families, as well as members of the community having a great time, getting into the festive spirit and supporting the school.

I would also like to thank all members of our PTA, for all their hard work in planning and organising such a successful event.

Thank you from all at Myddle CE Primary School.
