North Notts Lions Club came into school to present a cheque which will fund our Year 5/6 DARE course. The DARE programme is a course developed to help children years 5 and 6 (Age 9 – 11) acquire a wide array of personal and social skills, including:
• understanding the need to take personal responsibility for ourselves and others
• effective communication and listening
• coping by dealing with pressure and stressful situations
• decision making
• resistance skills
• the identification of risks and consequences, particularly in relation to substance abuse
Many thanks to the North Notts Lions Club for supporting this programme.
This week, we have been learning the skill of how to describe a setting and character in a narrative text using camera shots. Your challenge is to describe the long shot of a Victorian street (see below) and introduce the character in as many ways as you can. Remember to use all the prompts and support on the working wall to help you vary your sentence openers. Leave your sentences in the comments box.
Today was such a wonderful day! Class 3 stepped back in time as part of their topic ‘Revolution’ and dressed as Victorian children for a traditional Victorian school day. Children took part in drills, The 3 Rs, cooking, sewing and even tried gruel! Take a look at some of the pictures to see what we got up to!
This term, our Science topic is ‘Danger! High voltage!’
Our first lesson focused on the symbols for circuits and children investigated how to make circuits using only 2 wires, a piece of foil, a cell and a bulb. They were challenged to find as many wats of doing this as they could. As you will see from the pictures, children were very proud of some of their findings!
Yesterday, Class 3 all took part in the Play Leader training to earn their playmaker award. They learnt all about the skills needed to be a successful leader and are now trained up ready to teach the younger children sporting activities to ensure all children at North Wheatley are as active as they can be. We look forward to following the progress of our new Play Leaders.
