World Book Day 2018

 

Due to the school closure, we held our World Book Day on Friday 9th March. All the children dressed up as their favourite book characters. We spent the day completing various book related activities such as character descriptions and character portraits. It was also a delight to witness the children sharing their favourite books with children in Thoresby Class.

 

The staff didn't miss out either as we all played the part in dressing up as characters from Roald Dahl's, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

 

What a fabulous day and wonderful celebration of books and reading. The children looked amazing, thank you for all your efforts.

Mark Rothko was an abstract artist born in Russia in 1903 and moved to America when he was 10. His first paintings were of things he could see, like buildings, people and landscapes.

 

Later, he decided that using colour was the best way to show how he was feeling. He used carefully mixed colours painted in simple blocks and lines on very big canvases. This kind of painting was called ‘Colour Field’.

 

In art this week, we created our own 'colour Fields' and described our feelings about our comp

Show and Tell Christmas Special

 

To end our topic on pet homes, we had a few special visitors in school today.

Mr Arthur brought 'Welly' ,Nancy's border collie in and talked about the time Welly saved Nancy's hen from a fox. Mrs Brookes brought 'Hammy' the hamster in and told everyone that he likes to hide in the cupboard when he runs around the house and Mrs Roberts brought Toby in, her Cavalier King Charles puppy. Toby showed off a couple of his tricks and said hello to everyone in class.

 

Our class hamster Nibbles came out to play too. Kai is looking after him in the holidays. We are certain they'll have a wonderful Christmas together. Thank you for letting him spend his Christmas vacation with you.

A Special Visitor in Key Stage One

 

What a wonderful surprise to see that Father Christmas had time to call into Key Stage One today. The children had chance to have a little chat and then received a special little present to put under their trees.

 

Thank you Father Christmas for the lovely surprise!

We wish you all the best for the big day and promise we'll all be tucked up asleep in bed when you call next week!

Baubles!

Our Key Stage One nativity this year was a huge success. It saw ever child from Clumber to Rufford take part in a moving tribute to the traditional Christmas story. All the children performed brilliantly, singing, acting and narrating throughout the performance.

The afternoon ended with the beautiful Christingle service.

 

A massive thank you goes out to all the parents and adults who supported their children learning their lines and arranging costumes.

 

We would like to wish you all a very peaceful Christmas and a wonderful new year.

Maths Reasoning Morning (with a difference)

The children were asked to work in small teams to create the longest paper chain they could. The winning team would need to be able to measure their creation 

accurately too!

 

Well done everyone, it was lots of fun.
