Lower School Friday Meeting

 

Tuesday 9 June

 

Good morning lower school,

 

Thanks for all your hard work and messages yesterday, it's been great to see what you've all been up to.  It's World Ocean Week this week. The theme is 'Innovation for a sustainable ocean' with a focus on reducing litter, particularly plastics, in our ocean. There's a number of ideas and resources online for activities including a poster competition and different video clips that you may wish to have a look at:

Please send in any of your work to us and we will add it to the class pages.   It was also great yesterday, to start sending out some virtual certificates for all your hard work.  Keep it up and we'll see you soon.

 

Mr H, Miss Braid and Mr Baker

Hi Hedgehogs! 

 

Oxford Owl: Free ebooks

I realised that some of you may be finding regular reading a little tricky whilst you're away from school - libraries are closed and you cannot just wander down the corridor to choose another book from the shelf...

 

So, with that in mind, have set up an account on the Oxford Owl website. The company that made this site are the people who publish all the "scheme" books we have at school so it will be particularly helpful for those of you that are on stage books. That said, the "e-books" on offer in their "e-library" are appropriate for those up to age 11 so you 'free readers' will find it useful too!


Get onto website using this link https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/ then click on "My class login" at the top of the page.

Log in using the username: Endowed Hedgehogs and the password: missbraid (I originally set this up for my class before realising how many others may need this too!). You can browse the e-books by age range, series or theme. You can turn the pages just like in a real book, and even have a narrator read along with you! Such a great resource, I hope you get lots from it.

Letter from Bradbury Grange

Exciting news: Dorcas received a reply from a resident of Bradbury Grange! And what a reply....99 years old! Imagine that.

 

Jean is going to be 100 very soon and she is an author of children's books and stories.

 

More exciting news, Arthur also received a reply from Jean - what a wonder lady.

Term 5 TT Rockstars Results

 

Hello all of you Times Tables Rockstars! 

It's been four weeks since our TTRockstars Championship winners were announced and we've been keeping count of all the coins that you've earned since. 

 

This term's class winners are Lynx Class with an impressive 96,361 coins.

 

A massive well done and thank you from all of the Lynx Class goes to Lily who earned 45,712 coins on her own! An amazing achievement, beating some of the other classes' combined scores! This means that Lily is our TTRockstars Queen for Term 5. Congratulations Lily!

 

Kurt in Year 3 put in a valiant effort, earning over 18,000 coins for 2nd place and Stuart in Year 6 finished 3rd with over 12,000 coins. 

 

Well done to everyone who took part this term and don't forget to keep practising over the next few weeks! Perhaps the TTRockstar trophy can move from Lynx Class next term - it's becoming part of the furniture in there!   Mr Leone

Plantastic!

June 2018

The children of Potter class were given the challenge to create new recycling ideas having been inspired by our Plastic Free July. After an encouraging brainstorming session they came up with “Plantastic!” Plastic milk containers cut in half and recycled as hanging plant pots. The children had lots of fun designing their hanging planters and learning about different plants. We look forward to seeing their creations blossom during the next few weeks.
