Dear Parents,

Out and About on Kidblog

Reception
The children have been busy completing activities based on the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’. They have found out about fruits from around the world and animals and their habitats. The children are still enjoying chatting to each other on Teams and, on Thursday morning, Sienna from Year 6 read a story to them that she had written herself. Sienna read the story beautifully and the children listened well and enjoyed it very much indeed. Thank you, Sienna!

Year 1
Another great week in Year 1! The children are working incredibly hard. We are delighted! They have explored musical instruments and created symmetrical patterns. They have made up their own comprehension questions and applied new vocabulary like multiples in maths. They have explored sun safety in P.S.H.E. and learned all about the celebration of Eid in R.E. Fabulous, Year 1!

Year 2
The children have had a busy time learning about 2D and 3D shapes in Maths, homophones in English and minibeasts in Science where they created some fantastic models, mobiles and posters about the different groups of invertebrates. They took the minibeast theme into their creative writing and produced some amazing stories about meeting minibeasts inspired by Alice in Wonderland meeting the caterpillar.

Year 3
3M has been working hard learning how to tell the time in Maths and the children have shown a lot of perseverance with it despite the fact that it has been a tricky topic. Our last Roman lesson spurred some very creative work from the pupils: beautiful posters, mosaics, collages, aqueducts made out of Lego and even a song! Keep up the hard work 3M – Mrs Morrice is very proud of you!

Year 4
4S has done some outstanding written work over the last couple of weeks, both amazing imaginative stories and some wonderful poetry. It has been especially pleasing to see how dedicated they have been to producing the best work they can, re-writing and improving until they have come up with the best work possible. Mr Sheppeck is delighted with you.

In Science, 4D has been exploring the causes behind deforestation and the severe consequences that come with the felling of rainforests. They enjoyed a brilliant discussion lesson where lots of super points of view were looked at and addressed. Well done, 4D!

Year 5
We have had a very busy week in Maths, learning how to read timetables for trains and buses using the 24hr clock. In our English lessons, our focus has been on creative writing. The classes have written a newspaper report on a famous person from the past or the present and Year 5 has also written some really thoughtful and moving acrostic poems, using the theme of the ‘Lockdown’. We are sure that these will serve as historic reminders of these times and be studied by the future children of Highfield!

Year 6
6P has been very busy and the children are working hard and with great dedication to their learning. This week, they have enjoyed learning about the composer John Williams in Music. The children carried out some great research and found some very creative ways to present their work. In English, 6P has begun a new class novel, The Silver Sword, an exciting tale set in Europe during World War Two. Teams has allowed us to share some story times together as a class which has been a real treat. I have also been blown away by the super work being produced in Maths. The children have taken to algebra really well and have been solving some complex equations.

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
