We have a full week of engaging, stimulating and fun activities planned.
Read for meaning; read for fun is our motto!
We have many reading sessions when key skills such as: questioning, clarifying, predicating and summarising are taught, encouraged and promoted to help create confident and happy readers.
Let's talk, allowing groups and couples (reading buddies) time to discuss what they have read is KEY. It allows children the opportunity to form opinions and enhance understanding. Be WORD AWARE!
Monday 2nd March
BUG CLUB DAY - please can children come dressed as their favourite BUG, this can be as simple as a child coming dressed in their favourite, brightest clothes and making a bug mask ( over the half term) to wear on the day. This will help bring our BUG CLUB reading to life. We have exciting plans for the morning – promoting reading, and learning new vocabulary with our WORD PARADE!
Thursday, 5th March - WORLD BOOK DAY
Please can children come dressed as their favourite book character, and bring in their favourite book to read with other children.
There will also be a table outside for children to bring in their personal books - that they are happy to swap for a new one . We will discuss before, the importance of children bringing in books that they are only happy to give away, or replace for another one. Sharing is caring!
Friday 6th March
Chris White, a famous author, will be visiting our school to give all the children a master class in writing for fun and meaning.
He will be reading out his work, and promoting the love for reading, writing and being creative!

Utilita (life with power) Energy Presentation
Year 5 and 6 had a visit from 'Fiona' from Utilita (life of power). To talk to the children about the company, about the future of the company, what they are aiming for in the future and how we can help the planet and save money, for example the children learnt that if you turn your heating down by 1 degree you can safe £80. The children were quite shocked by some of the money saving ideas and where going to go home and tell their parents about them.
They also had the opportunity to design a poster for a competition to explain how to save money and how this will help change the planet for the better. If their poster is the winning poster it will be made into a billboard and placed in Derby.

Our amazing homework of our 'Strangest Shop Objects'!
Designing and planning our mable runs. Looking at scaling and proportion.
Science Lesson : Understanding that melting is a reversible change.
Our 'Makory' Experience by Derby Musuem.
The children had a look at the history of Derby, using maps from the past to the present day. They looked at the many differences between both maps identifying the expansion of roads and building, the decline of a railway line on Friar Gate and much more.
They were asked to think about what is needed in a city and what is important?
The children were then set a challenge to design city of the future, they included all the important features that they discussed earlier in the session: such as schools, hospitals, shops, transportation routes, an electricity plant etc. You can see from the photos they had an amazing time designing and planning their city. The high-level thinking skills and discussions were amazing amongst the children.
Additionally, they had the opportunity to go on the 'Makory Bus' which is a 'making factory' on wheels. The children designed their own badge, and used a badge press to make it. They were shown many different artefacts in the bus and were told about the renovation of the 'Silk Mill' - which will be re-opened in September this year - focusing on design and ultimately be a 'Making Factory' .It will feature a plane engine descending from the ceiling which has been donated by Rolls Royce and much, much more.
The children really enjoyed their experiences and wanted to go to the museum in September.
Our 'Makory' experience!
Making our Marble Structures - using lots of different materials and equipment.
