Fabulous Friday - Mini Section

Academic Blog

As we approach the weekend, let's have a look at what the Minis have been up to.

Assembly

The assembly this week was celebrating the importance of teamwork. The children were put in mixed age groups and asked to work together to complete their challenge. We discussed the importance of collaboration, perseverance and listening, respecting and encouraging one another. It was wonderful to see the children supporting one another.

Library

Each class visit the school library on a weekly basis. This is an important opportunity for the children to spend some quiet time engrossed in their chosen book. The children are able to use the library computer system to check their books in and out.

Year 3 & 4

Year 3 & 4 made edible Earths for their entry point to Active Planet. They used cherries for the Inner Core, marshmallows for the Outer Core, rice crispies for the Mantle and chocolate for the crust! They had to use their communication skills to work as a team and take turns.

Year 5

Year 5 had a great time making models of the Roman Coliseum and a Roman Village for their entry point. Their IPC unit this term is 'The Great, The Bold & The Brave'. During the science lesson this week the children had to dissect a flower and identify the main features.

Year 6

The Year 6 are enjoying their IPC unit, 'Champion for Change' and in science they have been working out the correct order of the Linnaean classification system.

Road Security

Today the local police officer joined us to speak with the younger students about road safety. As usual, they had a fantastic time and learnt a lot about how to behave outside the school.

First week

The first week!

What a fantastic start to the year. The students are already well integrated and enjoying the new clubs on offer. The boarding houses are now awake after a short but well earned break and the students are making the most of everything on offer. The students are enjoying the robotics club and the teachers are looking at how they may be able to incorporate the work done by the students within the lessons. All the students are working together and enjoying their time. A fantastic start to the year!
