Springwood’s Week 29th November 2013

This week Miss Hudson and Mrs Pitson revealed a big secret…..

We are going to Harry Potter Studios!!!!

We were all overjoyed and completely surprised and can’t wait for the trip on Thursday 12th of December.

On Monday whilst the Year Sixes were out cycling the rest of us started to write an alternative ending to Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. These pieces of writing were super important because they were going in our learning journeys.

We have been preparing to make our head pieces in DT and Art so have written shopping lists and completed our design process. We will start making these on Monday (so don’t forget to bring in any materials you might need).

In PE we did a cross country run, lots of us beat our PBs some even shaved two minutes off our previous times. Hopefully lots of us will be doing the Saturday morning run at Chiltern Edge in a weeks time.

In Maths this week we have been looking at solving word problems using the four different operations. On Wednesday we had to carry out an investigation into odd and even numbers – we had to find general rules for when these numbers are multiplied. We had our weekly times table test – most of our scores are really improving.

On Thursday we got a bus to Abingdon Hospital for our IMPS training. We learnt about first aid, CPR and even got our fingers plastered in the fracture clinic!




We were really lucky to have three fantastic parent helpers; a big thank you to Mrs Paton, Mrs Wray and Mrs Girdler.  

Please look at the website each day next week as we are creating our very own living advent calendar with songs, poems, stories and prayers.

Don’t forget next week is assessment week, make sure you have a big breakfast and pack your thinking caps.
