Greys Class – 7th February 2014

We have had another very exciting week in Greys Class.

At the beginning of the week we received an e-mail from James Mayhew telling us that our film had won the National Competition and he would be visiting Peppard School on March 6th, World Book Day.

Dear Mrs. Rolph,

I am delighted to tell you that your school has won FIRST PRIZE in the Katie World Book Day Competition.
Everyone was bowled over by the enchanting film you made, and also by the letters you sent in. It is wonderfully heartening to see such engagement and creativity.
I am very much looking forward to meeting you and the children on WORLD BOOK DAY which is March 6th 2014.
Do please get in touch to discuss arrangements for the day. For now, my thanks and best wishes to everyone who took part. There were a lot of superb entries, but it was clear to everyone at Orchard Books and myself that Peppard Primary School was a clear winner!

Well done also to all those in Greys Class who entered into the Sumdog Maths competition, all your hard work helped Peppard School gain first place. Please do continue to use your log-ins as you are still able to practice your Maths in a fun way.

Thank you also for all the scrumptious cakes that were made for the community coffee morning and cake sale.  Greys Class did a superb job being in charge of the organisation. We went out on Wednesday morning to leaflet the community, we made posters and price lists and we manned the afternoon cake sale, as well as working at the coffee morning in our teams. Greys Class are all Charitable Heroes!

The children have been continuing their Dance classes with Mrs Clinkard on a Monday. They have one more lesson left. Here are some photos taken this week.





In Literacy we have been continuing making our books about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. We are now up to Chapter 4.

In Maths we have been learning about time. The year 1’s have been doing a lot of work on o’clock and half past whilst the Year 2’s have been timing events in minutes and seconds.

In Science we have continued to explore the senses – concentrating this week on Taste. Miss Mander set out a plate of different items which the children were able to taste – some were sweet, some sour, some bitter and some salty.

We read the story of Louie Braille and discussed how the sense of touch enabled him to access reading and books when he could not see the words.  We will be working with Braille next week when we concentrate on the sense of touch.

The two people from Greys Class in the Starbook this week are:

Sofia  for excellent concentration and independent work in Maths when using clocks to find o’clock times.

Nina for some fabulous descriptive writing.

Well done to both of them!
