Class 8's FANTASTIC work on Black History Curriculum Week.

Date: 27th Oct 2020 @ 8:45am

During curriculum week the whole school looked at the Black History. Class 8 had studied Rosa Parks, who in 1955 travelling home on a bus, refused to stand up from her seat for a white person. This was against the law at the time and Rosa Parks was jailed and fined, however this one person’s stand ended up changing the law. We also studied Martin Luther King, who helped Rosa Parks among many to stand up for equal rights. The children took part in a variety of activities like acting out famous scenes, researching all about the life of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, writing fact files, drawing portraits and they carried out debates about equal rights where they raised questions and discussed them. 

What we've been learning THIS WEEK in CLASS 7.

Date: 23rd Oct 2020 @ 11:21pm

Hello from CLASS 7,

here you will be able to find out about all the FANTASTIC and FUN learning we have be doing in class this week.

This week we have been celebrating 'Black History Month'.  We have had lots of fun and learnt so many important things about some truly INSPIRATIONAL people - In Year 3 we looked at Martin Luther King Jnr and Rosa Parks.

I have loved every minute of our learning this week, about something so important - Danielle.

 

Ask your children to share what they have learnt.  We did various activities, such as :

  • Understanding the term immigration - the multicultural society we live in.
  • Understanding the term racism and the effects.
  • Understanding what the civil rights movement was.

We created our very own 'I have a dream' speech - inspired by Martin Luther King Jnr about something the children felt passionate about.  We had some very important topics such as longer play times, children’s choice of play equipment to some kind souls fighting for teachers to have a longer lunchtime.  Check out some of the children's work shown in the photographs.

We all had things that we felt were very important, I think teachers should have longer for their lunch. - Aisha

 

We re-created the famous 'Bus Boycott' scene along with other drama activities - inspired by Rosa Parks and learnt all about her great life and the contribution she made to the world.

 

We've also been busy entering a young writers competition and a school Halloween competition.

Class 7's WINNER was Jennah  - see below for the amazing efforts.

Have a wonderful half term holiday.  Plenty of quality family time and rest.  Ready for after half term.

Goodbye for now - Class 7, Mr S.Rahman and Mrs F.Begum. smiley

Black History week - Mary Seacole

Date: 23rd Oct 2020 @ 8:39pm

This week in Class 3 we only had two days to do our curriculum week learning,  but we worked really hard in class, and had  two fantastic days learning all about Mary Seacole for black history week.

Class 3 took part in lots of different activities and even became super doctors and nurses creating our own herbal remedies just like Mary Seacole, as well as producing some beautiful portraits of her.

We learnt lots of new super facts and wrote some brilliant sentences to describe her using lots of different adjectives. We were so impressed with all of the things that the children remembered. We can't wait to start our new topic next half term , learning all about another nurse - Florence Nightingale.

We hope class 3 have a lovely week off school, and we can't wait to see them when they return!

In nursery we have been learning about a story called 'We're going on a bear hunt'. In groups we went on our own bear hunt outside, looking for hidden bear cutouts which was great fun! The children have also been busy painting and drawing the main character from the story, the bear!! We created story maps, drawing out what we remember from the story. We also acted out the story in a music session. Remebering all the key phrases from the story!

Week ending 23.11.2020 Curriculum Week

This Curriculum Week Class 1 have really enjoyed finding out lots of new information about Ella Fitzgerald the famous singer. We learned about her early life and how she started to perform after winning a Talent Show - our own Talent Show in Golden Time on Friday should be lots of fun!

One of our favourite songs by Ella Fitzgerald is 'Happy Talk'. The chorus says ... 'You have to have a dream, if you dont have a dream, how you going to have a dream come true?' We had a lovely circle time where we shared our dreams for the future. If our dreams come true we will have lots of doctors,policemen, racing drivers and teachers in the future!

After Half Term we are looking forward to our new Topic of Night and Day.

Class 6 have been inspired by....

Date: 21st Oct 2020 @ 1:14pm

Nelson Mandela! 

During Black History week we have loved learning all about Nelson Mandela and his life. We explored Nelson Mandela in more detail, as an inspirational figure that fought for change for black people. The children were eager to learn lots about him and expressed their thoughts and feelings about his time in prison and how he wanted equal rights for all in South Africa. We are so proud of how thoughtful and empathetic all the children were when thinking about how tough his life had been.

The work that they have produced is amazing and below are a few examples from a variety of children in Class 6.

Inspired by... Black History

Date: 18th Oct 2020 @ 10:21pm

 

This week is Curriculum week. We are Inspired by... Black History and will be learning all about the Windrush generation.

                                                      Britain must pay its debts to the Windrush generation – no matter what it  costs | Colin Grant | Opinion | The Guardian

Windrush Day takes place on 22 June, remembering the day when around 500 migrants from the Caribbean arrived at Tilbury Docks in Essex in 1948.

Britain was just starting to recover from World War Two back then. Thousands of buildings had been bombed, lots of houses had been destroyed and it all needed to be rebuilt.

In the Caribbean, lots of young men and women had served in the British armed forces because at the time, many Caribbean countries were still under British rule and not yet independent.

After the war, some of these people answered an advert to come to Britain where there were lots of different jobs to do. 

Other people just wanted to see Britain, which they had heard so much about.

What we have been learning about in class 2! (WB 10.10.20)

Date: 16th Oct 2020 @ 12:55pm

This week in class 2 we have been learning all about houses around the world. The children have really enjoyed using the book 'You Choose' to find their perfect house. Every child in the class has drawn their perfect house and then labelled it thinking about the sounds they can hear in the words they want to write. 

In maths this week we have matching numbers and quantities. The children each had a gift bag with a different number in and they had to go around the room to collect that number of objects. 

Throughout the week the children have noticed the leaves that have fallen onto the floor in our garden, we decided to pick them up and on Friday afternoon we completed lots of different learning activities with the leaves. We made leaf people, used crayons to make patterns with the leaves and even collaged pictures of our faces with the leaves. We had so much fun following our interests!

We have been learning about... Incy Wincy Spider!

Date: 16th Oct 2020 @ 12:45pm

This week we have been learning the nursery rhyme-Incy Wincy spider.
Children have been joining in with the actions to the song and we have been reading The Very Busy Spider story by Eric Carle.

The children have been looking for lots of spiders hidden in our room!
