Open door maths classroom – 19.5.22

Thank you to all our parents who came to see a maths lesson in action this week. Your children really appreciate you coming in, as do the staff. We hope events like this help you to understand what we are teaching and help you to support your child’s home learning.

Partnership between home and school is essential for children to achieve success and to feel confident. We will hold more in the autumn term.

Parent feedback

I enjoyed the lesson. The teacher method of teaching was very good. I am happy with the children’s learning in class. They ae progressing well. I am happy that I was invited into school. Thank you.

We really enjoyed the maths lessons together. I am looking forward to more lessons with my daughter. Thank you.

I enjoyed the lesson as it was full of information on the topic. There were lots of questions, which are beneficial for everyone as this helps us to recap over what had been learnt. The lesson was interesting, and everyone was engaged and focused which is important. I learnt a lot from this lesson.

In Year 4 last week we were able to visit the Ramgarhia gurdwara temple in the local area. The children enjoyed a leisurely walk through the park to reach the temple and were greeted by some very welcoming sheikh worshippers. Some of the children have included a recount of the event.

First we listened to the instructions and so we had to take our shoes off before entering the congregation hall. The boys sat on the right side while the girls sat on the left. They explained about Sikhism and then we asked some questions. Before we left they have us some chocolate and a view of the room where the holy book is kept. (Munawar, Sarah and Yusuf 4JD)

We felt very excited to see what happened and the Guru Granth Sahib because we have been learning about Sikhism and wanted to see it face to face. It is good to learn about and respect other religions (Maheera, Iqra S 4JD)

I liked the way the Gurdwara had lights around the Guru Granth Sahib. It was also interesting to learn about how lots of religions are mentioned in the holy book. The boys and girls sat separately but the man told us you don’t always have. (Rumaisah and Umama 4CS)

When we went to the Gurdwara we took off our shoes because we are like guests. They showed us where they cooked the langar (food) which they give to anyone who wants it. They can be from any religion.

ANGLO SAXONS IN YEAR 4!

In Year 4, pupils have been learning all about the Anglo Saxons this term. They have explored the different lands that the Anglo Saxons settled in or invaded such as Kent, Wessex and Northumbria. As part of their History curriculum, the children investigated how the Anglo Saxons lived, especially focussing on their living environment. Living in small villages that were built near a body of water such as a river or lake, the Anglo Saxons, built their houses made out of wood, wattle and daub (cement like substance). Also being near the water, would allow them to have access to clean water and food. Sitting in the middle of their village, the house of the chief would be larger than most as it would often be used as a hall for the whole tribe. Year 4 pupils were most alarmed when they discovered that Anglo Saxon children didn’t have any time to play, instead they were busy contributing to the group by doing jobs such as collecting wood, feeding the livestock and finding food. That’s very different to our children’s lives now! 

Our pupils have loved designing and making models of Anglo Saxon villages and creatively sharing different aspects of the village. During this project, they showed great team work, collaboration and perseverance! You can see some of their wonderful Anglo Saxon village models here.

CHINESE NEW YEAR

The children learned about the Chinese New Year in assembly this week, the myth that led to the selection of the twelve animals of the Chinese Zodiac and that 2022 is the Year of the Tiger. We also discussed the characteristic traits associated with each animal.

6CR made some red envelopes and decorated with Chinese writing. These envelopes are given with gifts of money to celebrate the New Year. The children also made some Chinese Lanterns.


Year 4 have made some lanterns to celebrate Chinese New Year.  They used weaving skills to create these beautiful read and yellow lanterns!  Lanterns hung at Chinese New Year are thought to scare aware the Nian monster and bring good luck.

FOOTBALL

The new football league started at the end of January at Judgemeadow Community College. The team played their first game well and were leading right up to the end until a last minute goal in the dying seconds  saw the game end 1-1.

The next 3 games saw uplands on the defence throughout and whilst there were chances they all ended in losses for the team.

In the final game Uplands again managed a draw, thanks to some spectacular saves by Hamza, something that the organisers noticed.

For the first games of the season this has given the team something to build on in the coming months.

BASKETBALL

In recent weeks, a number of children have participated in two basketball tournaments and, I am very pleased to say, they have given a fantastic account of both themselves and the school with their attitude and application to these events. Unfortunately, the standard of competition is very high and we did not manage to win either of the competitions, but, as every good sportsperson knows, it is not the winning that counts, it is the taking part.

Mr Pryce (basketball coach).
