Shanghai Day – Term 1

Shanghai Day – Term 1
The last Wednesday of Term One marked the first Geography Enrichment Day of the year; it was a truly memorable experience with all children showing great enthusiasm for the subject of ‘Earth Writing’ (Geo = Greek for ‘Earth’; Graph = Greek for ‘writing’).
Based around the most populated city in the world, the day focused on the Human and Physical Geography of Shanghai. A particular highlight has to be the whole school conducting morning stretches in unison, as well as standing to attention whilst the National Anthem played and the Union Flag was raised.
The custom of raising the flag and having school-wide stretches takes part in all Chinese schools, usually commencing at 7:30am!
Well done to all children for their continued enthusiasm for Geography! The next Geography Enrichment Day will be on 8th February 2018 based on the theme, ‘Who do you [Geographically] think you are?’
​I hope you are all looking forward to it,
Mr. Goodeal​

Shanghai Day

Shanghai Day
The Rabbits and Owls have enjoyed a day finding out all about life in Shanghai.  We did our exercises as a whole school, we learnt where we are on a map and where Shanghai is, we counted to 10 and then finished by producing some fans and lanterns.
 

Home Connect Launch

Home Connect Launch

   

As part of our annual Book Week, we have today re-launched Home Connect for Years 2-6 (with Year 1 beginning to use Accelerated Reader as they year progresses), a superb and very powerful tool to help you to keep up to date with your child’s reading progress. By logging in, you can see all the books that your child has read, as well as their progress on quizzes that they have taken in school. You can even register your email address to receive emails each time your child completes a quiz, allowing you to celebrate this at home as much as we do in school. You can also register multiple addresses so that the whole family can stay informed.

Today, you will have received a letter with your child’s log-in details, and you can access the Home Connect website for our school through the link here, or through our school website.

Currently, we have email addresses registered for 119 pupils, with 31 students having logged in – let’s see if we can get that number higher!

 

 

 

 

Oliver Twist

Oliver Twist

The children in Rabbits and Owls really enjoyed watching M & M perform Oliver Twist.  The songs and dancing were great and they were amazing at all the different characters.

Rabbits and Owls shared their talents today at our Harvest Celebration.  We shared poems, our book of friendship, our blanket of kindness and sang our favourite harvest songs beautifully.  Thank you to everyone that came and helped make our morning memorable.
