Year 6 are already knocking their SATs week out of the park. Miss Best seems to be sending subliminal messages each day through her t shirts. Mrs Fenn has encouraged her class to take a kinaesthetic approach to maths and Emma is kick-starting each day with the power of fruit juice and a bacon butty. Teamwork is making the dream work at Middle Park Go Year 6!!
Year 4 Macbeth had a fun adventure yesterday as they travelled up the the Globe Theatre and explored the area around the river. They enjoyed a fun workshop that encouraged them to express themselves and get into character. We definitely have some actors in the making in Macbeth. Well done everyone.
FS2 have had the best day out at Godstone Farm. Spring must be the most exciting time to visit and we loved our big adventure. Well done FS2.
Thanks to Emma and her crew for the fun and delicious Mexican Fiesta lunch yesterday. It was great to have something different and the children gave their lunch rave reviews.
Our staff are having Lego training this evening with Stuart Swann. We are learning the many ways we can build and program our Spike kits. Who will smash the challenge and get their robot turning??
Brilliant Club is underway in Year 5 and the children have enjoyed their first session on statistics. The children were buzzing with excitement and their tutor, Ms Jordan, was so impressed with their confidence and their dynamic attitudes. (In fact, she said they were one of the best groups she has ever worked with but let’s not be big headed.) Well done awesome Year 5.
You may recall that two of our Year 6 children Ashae Millwood and Stanley Lorraine, were announced winners of a competition to design a sustainability mural through the Cross River Partnership. This reflects our love of nature and some of our very favourite feathered visitors alongside our urban location. We are absolutely thrilled to come back after the Easter holidays to see the finished mural which was created by @aspireartwork. The children are delighted with the bold design and we particularly love all the different angles you can view from around the school. We have further developed this front to our school with some cherry laurel planting and will continue to add to the biodiversity we are already achieving. What an amazing legacy for Stanley and Ashae – thank you both.
Brilliant to see so many parents and carers at the Year 4 times tables workshop. Thanks for coming everyone!
Year 5 Nergui had a great day at the PPMCC. The black box is one of the first GPS Global Positioning Systems. It is amazing to think that all that information is now at our fingertips on our mobile phones. Learning how globes are made and making our own required a great deal of patience and teamwork.
