Well done to Owen, Jack, Olivia, George and Naevia for reading a staggering 50 times! Owen and Bailey were this week celebration award nominees. They both work incredibly hard in the classroom across all subjects and are brilliant role models for the class. They are always doing the right thing and offering a helping hand to others. They are always smiling and enjoying all school opportunities. Well done everyone! 👏🏼

This week the children enjoyed doing lots of Christmas activities. They enjoyed making their Santa sleighs, making their Christmas presents for people at home and of course enjoyed their party. Thank you, once again, Matt Eva for the disco. 🎶🥳

This week... the children have enjoyed writing the Hebrew alphabet and sewing a mantle for their Torah to conclude the Judaism unit. They have also enjoyed their introductory lessons to the science unit Light and Shadows. The children tested different materials and categorised them into opaque, translucent and transparent. They then used this information in addition to some research to decide which material would be suitable for a pair of sunglasses.

Hare class wanted to say a big thank you to Michael Loader who told us one of his stories today. They were encapsulated by the musical accompaniments, belly laughed from the things Teddy did and enjoyed watching Michael perform his story.

Congratulations to Anaia, Oscar and Jack for passing their number bonds. Well done to Naevia for being our hand-writer of the week. Xavier produces lovely work and participates in class with thoughtful anecdotes. It is lovely to see how much he is now believing in himself. Naevia wrote a well crafted letter to our guest story teller today showcasing the techniques taught in English throughout last week. Indi has had an improved effort in her maths and is participating lots in class. Well done everyone!

This week... we have been mastering the written column method for subtraction with exchanging, learning a new Story all about Hanukkah and comparing it to Christmas as well as re-enacting the Hannukkah story, creating our own Torah in the Hebrew alphabet and playing the traditional dreidel game.

One word... WOW! We have so much to celebrate this week in class. Well done to William, Kathyrn, Maizie, Jack, Naevia, Jack, Jacob and Oscar for reading 50 times this term! Bailey was our hand writer of the week. Jack, Olivia, Ruby, Eleeshia, Owen, Naevia, Kathryn, William, Oscar, Callum and Ben all passed their number challenges. Olivia and Ben were Hare Class superstars. They are both working well across all their subjects and have a good work ethic. Ruby earned the celebration award for displaying her knowledge of the Judaism unit and all round attitude to her learning! Congratulations everyone, you have been working hard!

Look who has arrived... Each week I will take photos of our mischievous elf and add them to this post.

Another fantastic week for Hare class. Well done to Alisea, Hannah, Olivia, Owen, Poppy, Oscar, Bailey, Eleeshia, Anaia and Xavier for passing their number challenges this week! Maisie was our class dojo star of the week. She is always listening, producing great pieces of work and never gives up even when some things are a little tricky. Mason and Martin earned the celebration award. Martin has worked incredibly hard on blending his phonics, focusing on his maths and has a positive approach to his learning. Mason always participates in class discussions, has been a wonderful coach to his peers to further their understanding and has soared in confidence over the past few weeks. Superb effort everyone!

The children have thoroughly enjoyed cooking their Jewish dishes this week. Many have asked for the recipe so I have attached them below. Happy Baking!

Congratulations to our Christmas house winners. Thank you Joseph Casson Estate agents for the prizes. Take a look at the other fantastic art work and other window displays in the Bridgwater food and drink advent trail.

Congratulations to Jacob, Eleeshia, Oscar,Jack and George for passing their number challenges. Bailey was the class dojo star of the week, she works hard all the time to create beautifully presented work. Aubrey and Hannah were the celebration assembly stars. Aubrey is a kind friend. She makes sure everyone has someone to play with and offers her help in and outside of the classroom. Hannah has blown the adults away with her reading and comprehension this week. Well done everyone!

This week... the children have practised saying the colours in French, learnt some yoga poses, handled some Judaism artefacts and asked questions such as how is it special, who would eat oily food and why, when would you wear these items of clothing, what days would you light the menorah. In English the children have been following instructions to make Lego houses, paper aeroplanes and draw faces to evaluate and identify features of instruction writing. They will use this information to help them cook their own version of a traditional Jewish meal for Hanukkah. They have also added to their tessellation as they further study the works of M.C Escher.

Well done to these superstars! Hollie-May has made great progress in her reading and comprehension, Alisea has made some fantastic contributions in science, Rafferty is the class dojo star of the week and Jack, William, Poppy and Bailey have all worked incredibly hard to pass their number challenges!

This week... the children have been very busy writing the parable of the lost son, learning about different forces and investigating with magnets. Thank you to all who brought a donation for Children in Need. The class enjoyed working out with Joe Wicks, doing the Rickshaw challenge around the school and having a mini dance battle.

Congratulations to Callum and Anaia for being this week’s superstars. Anaia wrote a beautiful river poem and always has a smile on her face. Callum never gives up and tries extremely hard in all areas of his learning. 

Hare class have taken inspiration from nature in their Literacy work this fortnight. They have written poems using metaphors to describe the different phases of a river's journey, following their work on Valerie Bloom's poem, 'The River'. Hope you enjoy their iMovies!

Some of the children’s published poems using watercolours to create a river landscape.

This week Hare class have learnt about the importance of tolerance and embracing each other’s differences. Hare class looked at some significant individuals for Black History Month and produced a poster about one person that interested them. Below are just a few of the amazing posters the children created.

Congratulations to Oscar and William, this week’s celebration stars. William produced an excellent River poem and Oscar has worked extremely hard on his times table knowledge. Oscar was also our class dojo star this week. Well done boys!

This week everyone has worked really hard, both in and outside of the classroom. There have been many ‘Show and Tells’ from children visiting local places on the Somerset Levels, making progress on their times table knowledge and sharing their views about Valerie Bloom’s River poem using thiinklink on the iPads. The children have been busy writing their own versions of this poem which they look forward to publishing next week!

Congratulations to these superstars this week. Jack has been thinking carefully about using adjectives appropriately in his writing and Maisie has been increasing her vocabulary. Kathryn was our class dojo star of the week for consistently working hard and being a good role model for the class.

The children took part in apple pressing and making willow stars this Friday to see what some people use the Somerset levels for. They found out apple pressing was hard but rewarding work. They also realised how much resilience was needed to make their stars. Well done Hare Class!

On Friday the children put their research about flood defences to the test. They were challenged to build their own towns, thinking carefully about where and why they would place it with a main river and floodplain. They then had to build their own flood defence based on their research in class. The children chose between afforestation, dams or levees. Finally their towns were put to the test. Well done everyone!

Superstars of the week. They are always giving 100% effort to their learning.

This week we have been... securing our place value knowledge with dienes, writing some amazing sentences for our picture book, researching about flood defences, investigating what things in our classroom may need repairing or replacing for different depths of water and retelling the story of the Good Samaritan.

Well done to these superstars for receiving the celebration award. Two great role models for Hare class!

This week I have been...researching the Somerset Levels, developing my hockey skills, playing place value games in Maths, acting out scenes from the picture book Flood, sharing with others what is important to me.

class dojo stars of the week

This week I have been learning... how to partition and order numbers, why Jesus is important to some people, about Bridget Riley and OP art, how to make a space painting.

This week I have been so impressed with everyone’s writing. We read the beautiful book ‘Here we are’ by Oliver Jeffers and thought carefully about our world and everything in it. Hare class wrote letters to someone special, listened and made their own favourite place poems and took inspiration from Blue Planet clips and Louis Armstrong’s song what a wonderful world to compose their own song.

We had a fantastic first day back! We shared the book ‘Silly Billy’ by Anthony Browne then talked about things that make us worry. We made Worry Dolls like Billy did in the story. If we have any concerns, we will let our dolls know to take our worries away.
