KINGSLEY SCHOOL ROCKS!
We came top of the rocks in the town tournament.
1st place with 137,229 points. Well done to everyone who took part!
Starting this week , all children will be receiving a phone call from their teacher to discuss how they are getting on with their home learning. The teachers are really looking forward to speaking to the children and are eager to offer their support. Parents: the call will be made on a weekday during normal school hours (9:00am - 4:00pm) using a withheld number. These calls will happen weekly.*
Don't forget that we are also available via email 9:00am - 3:00pm every school day.
We would love to hear from you. Children, parents and carers are able to use the email below to ask questions, share work and activities you have been doing or to just to keep in touch.
*Note: These calls will not take place during the Easter Holidays.
Well done Cassidy, you have worked extremely hard to create your pop art image. It is very impressive.
Ewan sent the following clues about a river in South America:
Can you name the river?
Miss Flanagan guessed correctly after studying an atlas for quite a while!
Ruby has also sent in some fab clues about a river in South America using some great technical vocabulary.
Can you guess which river she is describing?
The photograph shows one of the storms at the source of the river. Ruby loves the colour of the lightning! What do you think?
This is the new member of our family. She was born on the 14th of February, which is also known as Valentine’s day, and we got Rosie on the 3rd of April and she was so petite and was nearly 8 weeks old. When we first got Rosie I was a little bit afraid that she would bite my feet and it would hurt, but then when she finally did, it didn’t hurt very much it was more kind of a tickle.
Rosie eats 4 times a day so that her stomach doesn’t stretch. Also she always has to have fresh water to drink all day long.
Rosie goes to sleep 10 o’clock at night until 7o’clock in the morning and cries for the first 5 minutes. Also she sleeps sometimes in the day.
Every time Rosie wakes up either me or my sister has to take Rosie outside for a wee or a poo.
When I play with Rosie we either play with the ball were I throw the ball then she runs and gets it and brings it back to me. We also play tug of war which is where Rosie gets one end of a rope and I get the other end and we both pull at the rope and see who wins (by getting all of the rope).
On the 24th of April Rosie got her 1st Injection and in the middle of the injection Rosie had weed all over the nurses. We can’t take her out for walks yet because she needs to have her second injection-which is in a few weeks’ time.
Ruby researched lots of facts about Beyonce to create a mini-biography about someone who has inspired her.
She then organised them into topics and decided to display them in sections to represent different areas of her life. Ruby had great fun planning and putting this together.
We looked at tension techniques and tried to use these in our own writing.
Look at some of the vocabulary we have clarified.
Can you spot example of figurative language in our writing?
We used ‘Talk for Writing’ to plan our work. Using our pictures, we rehearsed each sentence before writing.
We summarised the description given in the text and drew a picture of the setting.
We practised identifying examples of figurative language and explored their meaning and effect on the reader.
We have been using different tools like counters and place value charts, to help us prove our methods and help us further understand why we use these.
