We had so much fun decorating our tree last Friday!! Christmas has arrived at St Augustine’s!!

Poet from the Peaks: 

Today, we welcomed Andy Tooze, the Poet from the Peaks, to St. Augustine’s and what a fabulous day we had! Andy worked with the whole school and with individual classes to perform some of his own poems and to support the children in writing their own. We had an amazing day full of laughter and joy, surrounded by language, words and rhythm. Andy was a true inspiration to us all and the teachers were blown away by how enthusiastic and eager the children were to write and share their own work! He brought out the very best in all of the children and they were all enchanted from the beginning to the very end. We won’t be surprised to see a few notebooks appearing in pockets after today! Thank you, Andy, from us all here at St. Augustine’s for such a fantastic day. We know the children will continue to channel the inspiration you have fostered in them to their future writing, both in and out of school.

 

 

Kenning Poems:

This week, the children in Class 3 have been learning all about kennings and how they are structured differently to other poems. We explored a few examples together, including ‘What Am I?’ by Pie Corbett. We explored different ideas of riddles and two-word lines using noun-nouns or noun-verbs and used our rainforest work to inspire us!

 

Listen to our own rainforest kennings here:

 

       

Black History Month

As part of black history month our pupils enjoyed a collective worship about Rosa Parks. A part of this can be shown below.

 

Rosa Parks features on our timeline in the hall as part of our ‘Why do we remember people’ topic.

Mothers Day Poems KS1

Mothers Day Class 3

What a busy week back! It has been so wonderful to see all of the children back in Class 3, learning and playing together, just as it should be! We have been so busy reading and going over a few things with Miss Cashmore, ready for next week, but we didn’t forget it is Mother’s Day on Sunday! Usually, we’d hold an amazing service in church or school and share the special time with all of the fantastic women in our lives together, but unfortunately this year we can’t. Instead, we got creative and made some beautiful hand-made cards, painted and written by each of us in Class 3 to give to our lovely mums at the weekend. We each wrote a personal message inside our cards, as to why we love our mums so much and why they are so special and important to us! Here we all are looking very proud of our creations…

We all came dressed up today in something that represents maths – that could be number, shape, space, measure, statistics and so on! The children all looked fantastic and came ready to share why they had chosen the clothes that they had. In Class 3, we had a jumper full of hexagons, a number on a football shirt, parallel lines and even a handmade necklace to represent a repeating pattern! It was so lovely to see the children who are currently at home too – they too had found something mathematical to wear and it was amazing to see and chat to them this morning on Teams!

For our extra maths activities, Miss Cashmore sent home a pack of puzzles, including: a Sudoku number puzzle, a shape Sudoku and an Emoji crack the code quiz! At school, we went outside and gathered objects from around the school grounds. We then categorised them, ready to collate the data. We represented how many of each item we had in our categories and presented it on a giant bar chart on the playground and used metre sticks instead of our usual rulers to draw accurate bars! We had an amazing time!

World Book Day 2021

This year due to some children being at home for World Book Day, our teachers have recorded some videos to share of their favourite stories! We start off with Miss Cashmore, Miss Machin and Miss Jane. We hope you enjoy them.

Science Week 2021

Class 3’s Lovely Calendar

Class 3 pinned it up in the classroom (on our core values and prayer board), and explained to the children that during their daily prayer or quiet time, if they want to, they can take a look at the calendar and see which country name has been given for today. There is one country for each day of the month. Each country is a place where Feed the Hungry has provided aid. We spoke about the work we did with them before the pandemic and why it is such an important and worthwhile cause.

The children often take a look at which country could be in our thoughts today. There are often surprised that some richer countries, such as the UK, are also helped by Feed the Hungry!
