This week, my Dragon Writer award goes to Hannah! Her gorgeous non-fiction writing on ‘The Rainforest’ was well planned and she showed off her use of super sentence level skills! Can you spot her drop in clauses? Can you spot the use of commas in a list?
Well done Hannah, you are a star writer.
On Thursday 29th January, the football A team faced Lymington school in tough football match. Although we lost 4-2, our heads we’re never dropped because of our great team-ship and supporting each other. Unfortunately as soon as the whistle was blown the ball some how reached the back of our goal but our heads stayed high, but yet again we conceded another goal. After many more tackles and throwing’s, the Half-time whistle was blown.
After a tactical team talk, we raced back onto the pitch with our spirits high once again determined to succeed. Two early goals bought it back to 2-2, but unfortunately we conceded two goals late on to lose 4-2. However it was a great experience and we can’t wait to play our next game.
Thank you again for all the parents who came to support us!
On Thursday the 29th of January the Hordle Year Fives played a football match away against Lymington B team.Although we did not start perfectly, our heads never dropped and we showed all our determination and colossal teamship. We used all the learning values and came back to draw 1-1.
Thank you so much for the support from all the parents especially Mrs Wooster and Mr Parsons who helped us to keep plodding on.
Recently, Team Alpha’s netball team played in a match against Our Lady saint Joseph’s school as a home game. With amazing coaching from Mrs Brown and Mrs Phillips, we managed to win with a great victory of 39-1! In the first quarter we were winning 11-0, not conceding any goals! Then, in the second quarter we were up by 22 goals but unfortunately they scored a goal but with determination in our eyes we were not going to let this get the better of us! Then in the last 2 quarters again we did not concede any goal but were able to score 17 more resulting an amazing win of 39-1! One of the players quoted ” it was amazing match and I think our teamship really showed through” Thank you to all parents who helped and a big thank you to our amazing coaches, Mrs Brown and Mrs Phillips! We could not have done it without you!
This half term, our KS1 author of the half term is Simon James.
Team Squirrel has read two of this author’s books, ‘Baby Brains Superstar’ and ‘Little One Step’. First, we read ‘Baby Brains Superstar’ – a book all about a Baby Rockstar! Izzy loved his big hit ‘I WANT MY MUMMY!’ and Jack’s favourite part was when the audience cheered. Roxy couldn’t believe that the baby’s mummy put headphones on her tummy!
Little One Step is about a little chick who was really tired and wanted to learn to fly. Ellie-Mae loved Little One Step’s resilience when he was learning to fly and Phoebe noted how he had to learn to walk before he could fly.
In a recent KS1 assembly, Mr Slattery read ‘The Birdwatchers’ to all three classes. This was a tale all about how a Granddad introduced his Granddaughter to the world of bird-watching; something she was captivated by. As William noted, it was all about how important family and nature are.
Overall, us Squirrels have really enjoyed the Simon James’ work and we can’t wait to hear about how other Team’s have enjoyed reading their author of the month!
Team Oak, Badger, Wilverley and Deerleap chose to sponsor the national charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind. Having completed all of our Autumn Term cake sales, all the children in these classes then cast their votes for the puppy of their choice.
We are delighted to announce that our sponsored puppy is Isaac. Take a look at the link below to learn more about our sponsored pup. We will update you on our puppy’s progress as soon as we can!
This week, Team Cooper experimented with a new writing technique- using a flashback!
For many children, it was the first time they had used this structural feature of story writing so it was challenging trying to plan in a flashback which would work within their story.
All the children worked so hard and I have read some fabulous big writes today. However, 4 stood out for me and these are my Dragon Writers this week.
Congratulations to Bethany, Freya, Grace and Toby. You all achieved PB’s in your writing this week.
Congratulations to the rest of my set who also produced some gorgeous pieces of writing- it was hard narrowing it down to 4 pieces for the BLOG!
This week, our dragon writer was Ella!
Her poem in the style of Brian Moses was well composed and she thought carefully about her vocabulary choices.
Well done Ella! You are a star writer, keep up the good work!
This week, Team Badger’s Dragon Writer of the week is LACEY! Which phrases or sentences, from this homework diary entry, are you most impressed with?
Last week, Corah wowed the Upper Juniors with her incredible review of a new pair of trainers! She critiqued the shoes and wrote about how they could be improved. I was particularly impressed with the examples she gave and the range of synonyms for trainers.
What do you think of Corah’s review?
