Venus Catch up

Last Week's Catch Up 6.7.18

Posted 11/7/2018

Congratulations to Venus Class! This week they completed the final school challenge in order to complete the Young    Leaders Award. All of the children worked incredibly hard to tidy up Mrs Hulme’s Peace Garden: weeding, lopping, cutting back, raking, composting, sweeping and supporting each other. We all had a marvellous afternoon transforming what had become a wilderness into a tidy usable outdoor space, but it was VERY hard work! The children had a great sense of achievement  and were rewarded for their efforts when they stood back and looked at what they had done. They only had one complaint and that was they would have liked to have had a whole day for the task! Parents, take advantage of your children’s enthusiasm for gardening: by setting them to work in the garden this weekend, put your feet up and enjoy the sun!

Venus Class welcomed several senior members of our village community into school this week for a ‘Stay and Read’ session. Both adults and children shared book preferences and they read to each other. A wonderful atmosphere for the love of reading soon became apparent as a buzz of all things books permeated through The Hub. One visitor kindly donated two books to the school (Goodnight Mr Tom and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) to further encourage the children in their reading for pleasure.

What is becoming an annual event occurred this week, when Venus Class welcomed senior members of our community into school for an Afternoon Tea. The children excelled themselves in terms of effort and behaviour; they were truly exceptional. They prepared traditional Afternoon Tea fayre, which was presented beautifully, and they transformed our school hall into hospitable tea rooms. In addition, they served their guests most attentively. A performance of William Blake’s ‘The Tyger’ by the children topped off the afternoon. In the words of one satisfied visitor, “It was better than Betty’s!” So proud of you Venus Class.

Venus Class thoroughly enjoyed being coached this week by Mr Miles. They completed   innovative warm up activities which helped them to prepare for their skills work and then their matches. It was impressive to see how much their racket control improved over the two days which resulted in far fewer balls being lost! They also acquired improved knowledge regarding the language of tennis using terms such as serve, volley and love!

Venus Class are taking advantage of the glorious weather by getting ready for Wimbledon!  The children enjoyed playing tennis this week, brushing up on their knowledge of the game and working on their hand-eye co-ordination.  After an individual skills activity, they teamed up to display their considerable ball control skills, which were most impressive.  They  are working on moving around the ball, using balance and footwork to ensure they get to return every ball. Venus are game for tennis!

On Thursday, Venus Class went on the visit of a lifetime to the Palace of Westminster, after being invited by our local MP, Mr Nigel Adams. We had an incredible day walking through St Stephen’s Hall, Central Lobby, House of Commons, House of Lords and, most importantly, Westminster Hall, where we walked in the footsteps of Henry VIII and Oliver Cromwell! This was followed by a Crown and Parliament workshop and a hour long question and answer session with Mr Adams. Venus Class were an absolute credit to themselves, their families and their school. Well done everyone!

In order to give the children a ‘real life’ experience about this term’s science topic: Animals and their habitats, we visited Mrs Hammond’s small holding where they learned first hand about the life cycle and habitat of various mammals and birds. They also identified vertebrates on the walk down and classified them further into different species of mammals, fish and birds. Unfortunately, we did not see any amphibians or reptiles on our walk. Venus Class thoroughly enjoyed their visit: petting and feeding the animals. Thank you Mrs Hammond!

Venus Class shared their Viking research homework this week. We had lots of information about Viking gods and goddesses, Viking boats, Viking artefacts and Viking runes. Each child presented their information to the class, who made notes on the presentation. Everyone learned lots of new information. We are all looking forward to the next session when we will learn about Viking farmers and Viking food.

VENUS 

 

The children started their new science topic this week: Living things and their habitats. They learned the first stages of classification and how to record these in a table. Next, they identified the five categories of vertebrates and investigated the characteristics which determined the group an animal should be placed in. The children shared their findings in the form of a mini presentation to the whole class. Super science and speaking and listening was on show!

This week the children completed their peer assessment of  our gymnastics work. They have done incredibly well and have improved immensely. Their sequences included travelling along the bench, balances, rolls, different dynamics and strength had to be on show. I have been so impressed by the progress they have made. Thanks go to Samantha and Aoife for their weekly warm up, well done girls.
