Today’s Green Day was the Year 6’s opportunity to choose cooking. We decided to have a Great British Bake-off style competition where the children had to decorate a variety of different biscuits using careful icing techniques, as well as draw them. There may have been a little christmas music and singing to help them on their way. It is the 1st of December after all!!!
Homework – 17th November 2017
This week in class we have been learning about our teeth and the different functions that they have. We would like you to create a poster to persuade people to look after their teeth. The best ones will be put on display!
We have been absolutely blown away by the creativity and thought the children put into their Remembrance Day pieces. We have put together a display of a selection of the children’s pieces. Here are pictures of some of the children’s work and a video put together by a Year 4 child.
Thank you to everyone at home for your support with these amazing creations.
Year 5 have been learning about King James I and the religious conflicts that occurred which led to the plotters: Robert Catsesby, Thomas Wintour, Thomas Percy and Guy Fawes also known as John Johnson attempting to blow up the House of Lords. The children have been working on their writing skills that will enable them to write a report to inform.
Year 4 have had a fantastic start to their Viking day. We have all been so impressed with all the effort that has gone into the children’s outfits and shields…very creative. Thank you to everyone at home who helped to get these ready.
Here are some great pictures of some of the children’s efforts and our chance to see some real replicas of Viking weapons.
Year 3 have found something amazing on our school premises!
After receiving a letter from the mother of the dragon egg, we are now trying to answer the question – Should dragons live in Stubbington?
We walked into Stubbington village to look for clues of our mysterious visitor, asking the public questions about Stubbington to help us to respond to the letter.
All of our learning this half term, will be helping us to answer this question as we wait to see if our egg hatches.
We will report back soon!
As you are no doubt aware, today is my last day at Anne Dale after nearly 8 years at the school, working alongside many hundreds of children who have passed through Anne Dale’s gates.
I have been so very fortunate to have had the opportunity to teach so many of the children as they have moved through the different year groups and having seen the AnneDaleBlogs grow and grow over past years, I couldn’t think of a better way to say thank you and goodbye to both children and parents from the school community.
My work here at Anne Dale has been a wonderful chapter of my teaching career, filled with a great many memorable moments (famed I am sure for the many Pantomime outfits that I have arrived to work wearing!). Thank you also to the many parents and children who have spoken with me recently – I am truly humbled by your kind words. Thank you.
Wishing you all a very enjoyable Christmas break, good luck for the future,
