4 Edison’s Week

This week has been very busy for our class. It was our assessment week so we’ve been working really hard on our Maths, Reading and SPaG tests. Despite some challenging questions, the children have worked their socks off and have shown some fantastic progress. So a big well done to everyone in 4 Edison!

 

Also, we had a visit from Paul Sturgess, the tallest man in Britain who used to play professional basketball for the Harlem Globetrotters. We go to show off our basketball skills and get a group photo with him.

 

 

If that wasn’t enough, we won the smart card trophy for the first time this half term, earning 5 golden smart cards!

Thank you for all your hard work Year 4.

Have a lovely weekend

Paul Sturgess

On Thursday 21st March 2019 Paul Sturgess, former professional basketball player and Britain’s tallest man, visited Peel Hall Primary School.

He presented an assembly at the beginning of the day and taught the children about working hard to achieve the success, using what makes you unique as a strength and staying active and healthy.

Later in the day, he lead each class in some basketball activities on the MUGA. We took some pictures of year 6.

I also managed to take two 360 pictures with him.

And while year 6 were doing basketball exercises.

At the end of the day he was kind enough to take a selfie with me.
On behalf of the children and staff at Peel Hall Primary School, thank you again Paul.

(We also took some videos which I’ll be editing and uploading next week)

RE Week!

IMG_0002This week we have continued to learn all about Sikhism. We have learned about a very important festival called Vaisakhi, also spelled Baisakhi. It is one of the most important dates in the Sikh calendar and it is the Sikh New Year festival and it is celebrated on 13th or 14th April. We found out that Sikhs celebrate Vaisaki by wearing colourful clothing, by having parades, going to the Gurdwara and by singing and dancing. We ended the week by creating our own Vaisaki flags and having a celebration in our classroom. We have enjoyed learning and writing all about the festival and talking about how we celebrate different things!

The 9 Rhyme Challenge – Week 2

Week 2 saw the Nursery children learn the rhyme ‘Mary, Mary Quite Contrary’ .

The children have really loved learning this rhyme and have been singing it throughout the school day.

All the Nursery staff are very proud of the children.

 

Keep posted for Week 3 – Little Bo Peep
