A message of thanks…

Kate, Jane, Matthew, Giles, Debs and Dave would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who sponsored our 40 mile ‘Trek Through the Night’ walk. We set off at midnight and we all crossed the finish line at 3.30pm yesterday (Sunday).   It was one of the hardest things we have ever done and we were one of very few teams who crossed the finish line with all members standing.  Knowing that we had everyone’s support made such a difference.
We’ve raised about £3000 for Action Medical Research which is a fantastic amount.  And it’s still not too late to donate if you would like to – just follow this link https://www.action.org.uk/sponsor/TheSlendertones

This week we have started looking at a new book to inspire our writing called Fly Eagle Fly. We have acted out parts of the journey that a farmer takes to find his calf which leads him to finding a Eagle chick. We have also thought about describing the places that he goes working as a team to gather words to help us. Finally we spent the afternoon painting the penultimate scene to the story ready for us to write more next week.

In Maths we have been looking at pictograms and remembering the importance of reading a key.

What kind of data could you collect this weekend ton make your  own pictogram?

Next week we will find out if our predictions were correct when we look at our science experiments.

Finally, don’t forget swimming hat, goggles, costume or shorts if you got one of the letters about going swimming next week. It will be every day!

 

Have a great weekend,

Miss Conner

I wonder…

This week we have continued to wonder a lot of things…

Will this stop the sun damaging materials?

What does capacity mean?

How much water can we get in there?

Who will our next teacher be?

It’s great to keep questioning the world around us and exciting to learn something new everyday.

In maths the questions have surrounded measuring liquids.

Find a measuring jug at home and see what capacity different cups and glasses have in your kitchen.

We have set up our Science experiments to test sun protection and started to write up our posters to share with you and the rest of the school.

Last question for the week… Will the sun come out for our fair on Saturday?

Rosendale Summer Fair – Saturday 1 July – 1pm – 4pm 
It’s the Rosendale Summer Fair on Saturday.  A reminder that all this week the PTA are selling raffle tickets in the blue hut before and after school.  The raffle will be drawn at the summer fair on Saturday.
Entry to fair is via the Turney Road gate. As well of lots of fun activities, and crafts there will be lots of challenges (athletic and fun!) and performances from our very talented KS1 and KS2 Choirs, Steel Pan band and our orchestra.
See you there,
Miss Conner

How far could you go?

Call them crazy but starting at midnight on the 15th July, Miss Atkins, Mrs Boothroyd, Mr Criddle, Mrs Salmon and Mr Brokensha will be walking 40 miles along the South Downs Way to raise money for Action Medical Research. This is a charity that funds research into diseases that affect children. They will be ably supported in their endeavour by their driver, Dave – Rosendale’s premises officer – who will hopefully have them back in time for work on the Monday!

If you would like to sponsor them and support the work of this important charity, here is the link to their sponsorship page. Further information about the work undertaken by Action Medical Research can also be found there:

Many thanks from the team

Sports Day

SPORTS DAY
Sports Day is taking place on Friday at the Rosendale Road Playing Field. A reminder of the timings:

The Early Years and KS1 races commence at 10am,
KS2 children will arrive at the field for a picnic lunch at 12 noon,
KS2 races commence at 1pm.
Please ensure that your child comes into school in their PE kit and brings a water bottle.

A reminder that everyone is having a picnic lunch on the field. Harrisons will provide a packed lunch to all those who normally have a school lunch. Packed lunch children should bring their lunch as normal. I really hope that you are able to join us at the field.

Mr Cranston has suggested all year groups come into school in their PE kit.

Parents and carers are welcome to take their children home straight from the field however you must sign your child out with me first.

Calling people help tell stories

During the next academic year, we will be working with Elmgreen on creating The Great North Wood Education Trust Literature Festival (think of the Hay Festival) …we are looking for Authors, Illustrators, Publishers and Story tellers who would be willing to come into school to run workshops and speak in assemblies. If you are able to help, or know someone who would like to participate in the festival please contact Sarah Tyler. Librarybus@rosendale.cc
