11.6.2021 - What a week we have had in LKS2!
I think it is fair to say that LKS2 have hit the ground (and the air!) running in the first week back after the holidays.
The children have been fascinated by the eclipse, learnt about empathy, sent birthday cards to HRH Queen Elizabeth II on the occasion of her official 95th birthday and seen their classroom transformed into Spratton International Airport!
Next week we will venture off in our sky ship to South Polaris (be assured it remains firmly on the green list!) for a new adventure!

We will finish the lesson by creating an uplifting postcard which we can give to someone we know and put a smile on their face!

We have been learning about The Stone Age. We have created cave paintings and Stone Age jewellery.
LKS2 have had a very busy, but rewarding week at school. This term we are learning about the United Kingdom, it's countries, counties, boroughs and our locality. The children enjoyed trying to find cities and towns on our map and begin to recognise where Northampton is in relation to these places.
Student council elections took place on Thursday, I was very impressed with all of the candidates, they had considered their manifestos carefully and I would like to congratulate those who were successful, I look forward to working with you this year to achieve great things.
We concluded our week with Roald Day Day, a celebration of an author and screenplay writer who has influenced so many lives and continues to delight us all. The children enjoyed learning about the authors life and works and reading Fantastic Mr Fox beside the woods in our new Story Circle was a complete delight.
Our first full week back in school got off to a great start. Congratulations to our star of the week and the winners of the tidiest desk award.
We were thrilled to receive some gifts including a fabulous new clock that will help us to tell the time, an LED candle for morning worship and a lava lamp to support our meditation time.
The children enjoyed refreshing their memory regarding telling the time, they played a matching game where they matched the clock face to the words, challenged one another to tell the time and then challenged the class with some tricky times. Feel free to test them at home!
It has been a complete delight to welcome back the children to school this week, their enthusiasm, confidence and positive mental attitude has been inspirational and a credit to both them and you all.
We have used our first short week to focus on well-being, the children have been taught new techniques to support relaxation, Zen Tangling is now a firm favourite along with mindfulness colouring and listening to calming music.
I asked the children to draw both a picture of their new teacher and a self portrait - I am happy to say that they were very kind to me! I have included some examples below.
We have also enjoyed devising new games to play outside and even enjoyed a maths lesson about shapes on the field, they enjoyed this activity enormously as you will see from the pictures.
It has been an exciting week, I am delighted that the children have settled back into the "new normal" routine so well and there is definitely a buzz in the classroom.
