Year 6 went fishing at Deans Pond led by the Swinton Anglers Association. Everyone caught at least one fish but there was no fish supper for year 6. All catches were thrown straight back.
This afternoon all the children in Years 3 and 4, along with over 30 parents and relatives, joined together in the school hall, to work together using their Q1’s. The children (and adults) were challenged to make a video about The Deans using their Q1’s. We used a program called Windows Movie Maker. To make the video they had to sequence various video clips that they had previously recorded on their Q1’s. They then added various ‘transitions’ as well as attempting to add a narration. We will all look forward to seeing each others videos in school over the next few days.
We have some blue tits nesting in the wall, near to the Junior entrance. Both parents are busy collecting food for their chicks
Years 1 & 2 have been working extremely hard outside the classroom and have finally turned this…
We are growing a variety of vegetables including cabbages, radishes, onions and lettuce.
Today Years 1, 2 & 3 had lots of fun using some Science equipment. There was lots of discussion and plenty of noise!! One of the favourite activities involved looking at a bicycle that had been made of the wrong type of materials. The rest of Key Stage 2 will be using these activities next week.
Which was your favourite & why?
Good luck to all the children who are doing tests this week, particularly the children in Year 2 and Year 6 who are taking national tests.
What do you think of the tests this year? Easier or harder than you expected?
We have recently had some cycle stands installed at school. This now give us the opportunity to allow some children to come to school on their bikes and be able to lock them up securely during the day. The oldest children in school will be given the first opportunity to come to school on their bikes and then other classes will be involved depending on the number of free spaces available to lock up the bikes.
