PTA Film Night - Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Remembrance Day 2022
Today, for Remembrance Day, we thought about the heroes who had served for our country and other countries who had either been injured or killed in conflict. We held a 2 minute silence and prayed for past and current troops who put their lives on the line every single hour of every single day just to help people they don't know. After the 2 minute silence, we went back to the classroom and wrote letters, posters and notes to our Armed Forces. We have posted them so current serving members of our Armed Forces will get to read them. Hopefully, we can put a smile on their faces and make them realise how loved they are.
Some pics of our learning from this week (Term 2 - week 2)
Numbots and Times Tables Rock Stars Relaunch!
What a great, rocking day we all had. Everyone dressed up in some superb robot and rock star costumes and then spent much of the day putting their Maths skills to the test. Brilliant - we love days like these!!
Black History Week
This week, all the children in school have been learning about Black History and the struggles and equality black people. The children have created some fabulous pieces of work from art to poetry to djembe drumming - they've learnt lots!
This week's Award Winners!
SPACE DAY POETRY
Here are some brilliant poems the children created as part of our Space Day themed learning. They are out of this world!
SPACE DAY 2022!
The day started with Mr Marston leading an assembly about why he loves space, with reasons such as: Buzz Lightyear, Stargazing, Moon Landings, Gustav Holst's 'The Planets' and then some mind-bending space facts!
Afterwards, we took part in some space maths, creating data and statistics that we interpreted into a bar chart, pictogram or pie chart. We asked, 'Who believes in aliens?'
Once the maths was over, we took one giant leap and designed a rocket using exploded diagrams and annotated sketches. Class 2 designed and made aliens that could stand up! The rest of us made rockets that could launch to the moon!
Live long and prosper!
Last Thursday, we celebrated our 150th anniversary as Monkton Church of England Primary School. To celebrate, we had a very special guest visit us, The Right Reverend Bishop Rose Hudson - Wilkin. She helped with our Collective Worship, went on a school tour and also opened our brand new Tom's Garden. It was a very special day indeed!
We've seen some great learning this week! Indoors/outdoor learning, Roald Dahl day with tasks linked to his books, story sequencing and writing, maths problem solving - you name it, we've done it (well, the children have!)
Today (14.9.22), we picked our first, ripe tomatoes from Tom's Garden and gave them away to parents. We'll be picking more very soon so keep an eye out for our super duper Market Traders on the playground!
What a great start to the 2022-2023 academic year!
