Year 6 investigate Road Safety

Monday, 22 January 2018

With the support of The Riot Act theatre group Year 6 took part in a C.S.I workshop. Pupils investigated a crime scene and considered safe and unsafe behaviour for pedestrians and drivers. Through interviewing witnesses they were able to consider responsible behaviours and how to increase their own safety. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and informative experience.

Reception Update for the week ending 19th January:

We have been very busy in Reception combining our computing skills with our writing.  The children used the iPads to scan the QR codes in the area, which showed them a picture from Jack and the Beanstalk, a story we have enjoyed reading.  They then recorded on their sheet where they had found the picture.

The children were very excited to find all 9 pictures and used their phonics skills to sound out the words when writing.

Bike Polo Training Day 3

Our final training session with Emmett - how fantastic for us all to be coached by a current world champion bike polo rider! The improvement in everyone’s bike handling skills was clearly evident during this session. Lots more opportunities for playing games and managing to score goals against Mr White! All in all, it’s been a brilliant 3 days and we look forward to bike polo club starting up after school in the next couple of weeks.

“Today we were really excited because Mrs McKinnon took us to see Mrs Delmonte in her office. It wasn’t because we were naughty, it was because Mrs McKinnon was so proud of us. We had worked so hard sequencing the story of The Gigantic Turnip and writing it with adjectives and conjunctions. We read our stories to Mrs Delmonte. She was so happy and proud that she gave us her special stickers. The sticker says ‘ Mrs Delmonte says well done! Hilldene Primary school.”

Recorder Club

Friday, 19 January 2018

The children in year 3 are thoroughly enjoying our recorder club - an new and exciting curriculum opportunity this term.
So far the children have worked hard to master the art of playing a kazoo using their own voices before being assigned their very own recorder.
In this club, Mrs Gillard will teach the children to read music alongside teaching them how to perform their musical pieces to an audience. Happy tooting recorder club!
