The children in Cedar class have been writing poems for the Premier League Primary Stars programme called 'Beautifully Different, Wonderfully the same'.
Here are a few poems that the children have written, about diversity in their class.
Today, Lyall's Grandad (Dave), who used to be a Baptist Minister came in to tell us about his work and life. He told us that minister is another way of saying 'servant'. His job was to help people hear what God was saying. He has never worn a dog collar as he feels this puts up a barrier. It was a very hard job, he was never off duty.
Year 3 went on a trip to Ely Cathedral on Tuesday 6th November. We all had a wonderful time looking at the architecture, stained glass windows, labyrinth, Octagon tower, altars, prayer rooms, monument to Etheldreda and learnt about the history of the cathedral. Many people commented on the excellent behaviour of our children. They were a real credit to the school. A special thanks to Mrs Henry, Mrs Bridge and Mrs Fuller that accompanied us on the school trip.
Kingsfield School has invested in a new scheme called "Maths No Problem". The children have really been enjoying working collaboratively together to solve the "In Focus" task and working independently in their work books. They have been encouraged to use a variety of strategies including using practical equipment.
You might remember using these resources when you was at school!
We had lots of fun and learnt lots of interesting facts about Chatteris on our trip to Chatteris Museum. Did you know that Chatteris was first called Cedriz coming from the words for (wood) and (Stream). Did you know the Iron Age people were the first to settle here? We also learnt that Ely is called Ely because of the fact that they were able to catch lots of eels in this area. These were sent to London were they were eaten as a delicacy.
Below are some of the activities from 2017-2018
What do plants need to keep healthy?
3CB have been planning and carrying out science experiments to see whether plants need leaves to grow. We had 2 plants, the same size at 14cm. We took the leaves off plant 2 . We put them in the same place and gave them the same amount of water.
Today we measured them to find out that plant 1 had grown and was 16cm (grown 2cm) and that plant 2 hadn't grown! We can conclude that plants do need leaves to grow.
Last week 3CB went on the life bus and we talked about our bodies and brain with a lady called Tina. She told us about the good things that benefit our bodies: (exercise, water and healthy foods, oxygen and sleep) and things that have a negative effect on our bodies (alcohol, drugs, junk food).. She showed us a model of a body called Tam, and we thought about all the organs including; heart, liver, lungs and intestines inside our bodies. She also showed us some medicines and one was a syringe. She asked what we should do if we found one in the street. Someone said pick it up and put it in the bin. She told us that this was a very bad idea as the syringe could hurt us. Even if we have gloves on! Then we said a rhyme “Don’t Touch – Tell”. This means that we should not touch it but tell an adult who can ring the Council. The Council have special people who can come and pick it up. This was reinforced back in the classroom.
Then we met a giraffe called Harrold. Harrold was upset because his friends had fallen out. We watched a video of two boys falling out and we had to make suggestions about how the boys could become friends again. We can to the conclusion that the boys should apologise to each other and give each other another chance.
The children really enjoyed the experience!
This week in Maths the children have been learning about statistics (collecting data).
We have interpreted pictograms and then drawn our own favourite fruits, the favourite was apples and the least favourite pears. We have interpreted bar graphs and then created one on flavours of crisps.The most popular was prawn cocktail.
ROMAN CLASS ASSEMBLY
We have also been busy learning our lines and making our own Roman shields, in preparation for our class assembly this week. We are looking forward to presenting our class assembly to you all on Friday. See you all there!
