Penguins Stibbington Trip

ON the 23rd September 2016 the Penguins and the Sailfishes went to Stibbington to investigate rivers.

We completed a river study on the river Neme. The children had to wade into the water to measure the flow rate, the width and the depth of the river.

Our results were unusual as the river flowed fastest at the edge of the river. ONce we had completed our study we went back to the centre to study flooding and water run off.

We had a really great day and learnt many new things about rivers. Thank you to all those who helped make our trip a success.

Please take a few minutes to look at the picture in the gallery above. They show some of the investigations we took part in.

Penguins - Homework

Penguins Homework will be given out each week based on the following timetable:

All Maths and English homework should take no more than 30 minutes. If a child works for 30 minutes continuously and does not finish the work set, parents should make a note in their homework books to indicate the time spent on their work.

Welcome Back

Welcome back to everyone. We hope you have had a restful break. We are very much looking forward to getting to know you all and working with you this year.

Stibbington River Study

We are delighted to be visiting Stibbington Outdoor Education Centre this term so that we can participate in fieldwork linked to our Geography topic. You will not have to wear school uniform but you will need to wear suitable clothing for working in and around rivers.

P.E. - Stingrays

For the first few weeks of term, we are hoping to continue using the school pool. Swimming lessons will take place on Friday mornings. Please see the curriculum newsletter for details regarding the appropriate kit.

Once the pool is closed for the winter, we will continue with outdoor PE on Thursday afternoons. Please ensure that you have suitable P.E. kit, including a navy blue or black tracksuit for outdoor lessons as well as football boots if possible. Shin pads are also advisable.

Every Wednesday morning, dance and then gymnastics lessons will take place with our specialist dance teacher, Vanessa. Please ensure that you have the correct P.E. kit (white t-shirt and navy blue or black leggings or shorts).

Spelling Homework - Stingrays

Spelling homework is given out on Mondays and is due in and tested on Fridays. Please write 10 sentences that show you understand what your spelling words mean in context.

Don't forget to keep revisiting those key words from the National Curriculum - they are listed in a PDF link on this page.
