Can we just start by saying… WOW!
What a fantastic assembly! The year 2 children worked so hard, and spent all afternoon in the hall singing and dancing (I think we were a little bit tired by the time our amazing audience arrived).
We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.
Thank you to all of the fantastic parents for coming to watch us!
I hope you got lots of pictures… Miss Cunningham was too busy dancing at the back to get any! (Whoops)
In Computing this week we are looking at shooting games. So many games involve shooting things one early example is Space invaders.
There are many other examples some thaqt you might play on your xbox or PS4 – can you name any?
Some games have age restrictions – they are clear on the box. These exist to make sure that you only see games with material that is suitable for you to watch as you play. Sometimes we may want to play games our older brothers or sisters are playing but they aren’t suitable.
What should you do if you see something in a game that concerns you?
This game we are testing today is suitable.
When you play this game I want to know what are the rules or algorithms for this game.
In English, the children really look forward to their “pink copy days” because it’s an opportunity for them to showcase all of their recent learning, skills, understanding, perfect presentation and their amazing flare for telling stories.
You could hear a pin drop in our classrooms during these lessons because all of the children are focused, concentrating and working hard on their personal targets. Clearly demonstrating their love of learning and working hard to be the best they can be.
If you would like to purchase your child’s school photos, you will need to bring your orders and payments in by Friday 23rd March.
We’ve had an absolutely amazing morning at the Mornings of Music!
We sang beautifully, we played our instruments perfectly and showed our BEST manners the whole time we were there! So much so, that other schools were commenting on how polite we were as we arrived and left.
Take a look at us in action!
This week in Computing we are testing a version of the first every console game – PONG!
As you are testing the game with your partner I want you to think about the following questions.
How is the score determined?
How do the racquets move?
How does the ball move?
What happens when the ball hits the bat?
What elements are random in the game?
We have been trying to remember our methods to help us answer tricky maths questions, but sometimes we get them a little bit muddled up.
So here are some reminders of what methods we use, and when.
On Tuesday, Year 2 tested and chose the best Year 5 games in an arcade! But we only managed to see one class each 😦
By ‘spending’ our 50p we chose / voted for the best game in each class. Today we are picking the best game in year 5!
Thank you so much to all of our amazing parents who came to see us for the parents evenings.
We hope we have answered any questions you have about your child’s progress and how they are getting on in all of their subjects.
If you have any additional concerns, questions or queries please do it hesitate to ask us.
