Our ‘Wonderfully Made’ Day

Today the children took part in a ‘Wonderfully Made’ day. This was intended to teach the children about diversity and how we are all different as well as the importance of respect.

The children rotated around 4 different activities, which included:

Values through Art

Brazilian Culture

Respect in Sport

Bhangra Dancing

It was an excellent day, made even better by the beautiful sunshine. The children learnt a lot about the diverse world we live in and the importance of treating everybody with dignity and respect. The day concluded with a real celebration in the school hall, where children and staff took part in various Bhangra style dances.

Programming using Scratch

Today, pupils in Rhino class learnt how to use a programme called Scratch to write simple algorithms. They were able to produce their own x table check style programme to test each other. It was great fun!

Scratch can be accessed online and is a great programme to explore. Click here to access Scratch

Inspire trip to Lichfield Cathedral

Rhino Class have had a wonderful day out learning about the importance of values in the beautiful setting of Lichfield Cathedral.

The children were so well behaved and really enjoyed all the activities which included a historic tour, singing in the Chapel and even building using Minecraft!

The weather was absolutely brilliant and we even had the opportunity to eat our lunches outside in the sunshine.

 

Rhino Jubilee Celebrations

Rhino Class have had a great day celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

They all looked fantastic and enjoyed all of the activities that had been organised. They were very creative during the royal themed art with Mrs McGrath and thoroughly enjoyed the dance session that Mr Hughes had organised. They loved Mrs Crow’s party games and finished the afternoon by singing some royal themed songs with Mrs Kassel-Fell.

What a lovely afternoon.

Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

Today the children looked fantastic as they arrived at school in their posh clothes. The School had a make over too, thanks to our dedicated and talented staff!

Weather conditions were not perfect during the day, so we had our picnic lunches in our classrooms, which the children still really enjoyed.

During the afternoon, the classes took part in a series of activities in rotation. Each class experienced:

  • Royal themed artwork in Panda Class
  • Royal themed party games in Tiger Class
  • Royal themed singing in Rhino Class
  • Royal themed dance in Jaguar Class.

All children have had great afternoon taking part in each of the activities and there really was lovely feeling around school, a real buzz of excitement.

I would just to thank each and every member of staff for all their dedication and creativity in the planning and organisation leading up to this event.  I would also like to thank all parents for sending the children in so smartly dressed as it really made the day even more special.

Please check the class pages for even more photos of the day.

Play Script Perfection

This week in class, we looked at the importance of stage directions in a play script. The children added their own stage directions (for both how to speak and how to act) and tried them out with their partners once they had finished. All children worked hard and were really able to bring the basic play script they were given to life.

Welcome to the brand new class page for Rhino Class

Our new class web page looks great as I’m sure you’ll agree.

Hopefully you will find navigating the page really easy. You find any class news here in this section and be able to access homework and spelling information using the tabs below. You can now also scroll down and click on the class apps to access some really useful websites to support learning at home.

Rhino Homework

Last term we studied a Geography unit about Shrewsbury. For homework, I would like the children to produce a poster all about Shrewsbury showcasing all they learnt during the unit.

They should be able to produce information on:

  • Land use
  • Population
  • History
  • Buildings of interest
  • Famous people

The children are more than welcome to do further research if they wish.

It would be great to have this homework handed in before the end of the half term – Friday 27th May.

Many thanks

Mr Glover

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.
