Lacewing Class: September 2022 - July 2023

This week's Legendary Lacewings

Flamingo Class: September 2021 - July 2022

English: Poetry, Creativity and Performance!

This week, the Year 5 Children enjoyed discussing and analysing Robert Louis Stevenson's poem My Shadow. With this inspiration in mind, the children worked in groups of twos to design and create their own shadows and stories. They were very excited to have the opportunity to narrate and perform their Shadow Stories to their class. We had some amazing adventures with super heroes, dragons, flying rabbits, football heroes, witches and magic cats!

All about ISLAM

This term in RE the children have been learning about the different aspects of Islam, including:  Who is Allah and Muhammed, Five pillars of Islam and why do Muslims fast? After doing lots of research, Flamingo class created different designs to present their information - leaflets, posters and mobile models.

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you Muntaha for sharing with everyone about her religion and created this amazing poster all about ISLAM. RE Lead Mrs G thought it was so informative and beautifully drawn that it has been copied for each class to display.

As I walk along the shore this particular January evening, I see a rocking horse perched atop a roof, reflecting the white horses that have galloped through storms and sun alike. The soldier-like groins are on duty tonight, on the front line of the beach; the battlefield strewn with helpless seaweed. As I breathe out the salty sea scents, the crisp air causes my breath to emerge in chimney puffs. Mouth fog. I sit down on the coarse but soft sand and ancient stones. Above me is the miniscule, egg shell white, half-moon, amidst the blue-grey, January sky. How many places has the magical moon seen?

 

Three things come to mind on this desolate, calm beach: safety; innocence; purity. My boots make petite angels as they separate the sand. This beach is angelic. The ocean could be a God that takes the rocks my brother is throwing into its gentle palms and sends them on a journey throughout many oceans.      

                                                                                                                       

Incessant seagull toddlers harass my ears as I try to return to the tranquility of lapping waves. The distant Sheppey lights get smaller as I walk away from the comfort of my beach. There’s a soft breeze whipping my hair around my face, as the footprints of many happy dogs disappear under my step.  The beach is empty of tourists ruining my ‘Whitstabubble’ tonight. 

 

 The beach; my home for as long as I have lived. All the more reason to love it better than any place in the world.        

Getting to the heart of the matter!

Monday 10 January

This week Flamingo class had the gory pleasure of dissecting a pigs heart to enhance their learning about the human circulatory system. We spent time investigating the different sections of the heart and compared it to a diagram of a human heart. We couldn't believe the similarities! 

Black History Month

Flamingo Class have been learning about the 'The Story of Windrush'

HMT Empire Windrush is best remembered today for bringing one of the first large groups of post-war West Indian immigrants to the United Kingdom.

 

The Windrush Scandal saw hundreds of Caribbean immigrants living and working in the UK wrongly targeted by immigration enforcement as a result of the government’s “hostile environment” policies.
