Road Safety have been in school this week working with Year 3. All the children have been out in the community learning and reinforcing the knowledge and understanding of keeping ourselves safe near the roads. Please spend some time asking your children what they know and ask them to teach you how to be safe!
In Monday's assembly, the whole school had the treat of listening to two pieces of Year 5's writing. It was based on a film about a lighthouse and the lighthouse keeping when danger is about to encroach the village.
EVA wrote an amazing newspaper article:
Last night, a terrible tragedy was avoided when a ship nearly crashed into the rocks (in Coolsville) after the lighthouse light went out. Derrick Platter has run the lighthouse for 37 years and he said there had never been a problem before.
Last night, 9.48pm, in Coolsville, Mr Platter was alarmed by a very disturbing sound. Then the life-saving beam suddenly failed.
Cameron also wrote an enthralling newspaper article:
The great, old lighthouse manager (Fredrick Spaghetti) was at work when the light went out. During when this happened, Frederick was running up the main lighthouse staircase as afast as his little, old legs could carry him. When he reached the top he said, "I feel like I have just run a marathon."
Well done to the these two who have used:
Varied punctuation - brackets for parenthesis, speech in a newspaper article, commas to mark adverbial phrases and clauses.
Excellent examples of language - tragedy, disturbing, avoid, accidentally.
Thank you for your confidence to read your work aloud in assembly and your effort in your work. Well done to you both!
Foundation Stage Two pupils have had an amazing start to our new topic of, ‘High View Cares’. They have handled, with great care and kindness, a range of animals. They learnt about keeping them safe and how to be kind to them.
I cannot believe we are into the final term of 2018-2019. I hope you have all had an amazing break over Easter. This is an extremely exciting and busy term where we all have lots to look forward to...e.g. Sports Day, Transition days, Summer Fair, Family Fun Sessions and for our Year 6 pupils a whole lot more as they get ready to say hello to Secondary school!
