Happy Children Inspired to Learn

Autumn 2

Here are our last ⭐️ award winners of 2023! Well done guys!

Last week of Autumn term and of 2023! We had year group parties with dancing, games and prizes. We finished off our English lessons exploring the gorgeous story ‘Coming home’ by Michael Morpurgo, discussing its meaning and sequencing the key events as a story map. And despite Storm Pia trying to ruin our annual trip to the local church service, we brought the service to Woodbridge instead. Had an excellent first term with the foxes, everyone has earned a fantastic Christmas break! See you all in the new year!

Well done to our week 6 super Woodbridge ⭐️ winners for showing their resilience and for showing pride in their learning attitudes! Well done 👏 I am lucky to be able to teach you all!

W.C 11.12.23 Wow! What a jam packed week! A visit from the big man 🎅, 3 performances of our school play. Christmas dinner 🥘 day, carrying out our science experiment to see if all metals are magnetic. We performed our persuasive speeches “dance-off” style, battling it out to see who can persuade Santa the most for that extra present under their tree. Culminating in a lovely Friday afternoon, creating Roman Coil pots with our terracotta clay! One more week to go, can’t wait for more festive learning next week!

W.C 4.12.2023 We have had such a busy week I have not taken as many photos of our fabulous foxes as normal. In PE we moved on to perfecting jumps and our landing position, I managed to get some action shots of the foxes. During the week we have been rehearsing our socks off for the school panto, no photos as I don’t want to give any sneaky peaks. We ended the week on an absolute high attending The Winding Wheel in Chesterfield to watch their performance of Aladdin. The kids loved and and their behaviour was impeccable! Well done foxes.

Well done these 3 foxes who impressed their class mates and teachers with how respectful they were last week!

W.C 27.11.2023 - week 4 already! This week we used Numicon in maths to support our multiplication. In PE we created our own sequences of moves, including travel and holds. In art we practiced different clay manipulation techniques in preparation for our pottery design next week. And most importantly, Christmas arrived at Woodbridge! The children love December 1st here as all the staff work really hard to turn the school into a fabulous grotto!

Well done Dylan, Harriet and Alex for showing us your creative and responsible personalities!

W.C 20.11.23 This term is flying by, 3 weeks in already! This week the foxes explored our black history by researching 4 case studies of historical figures. They were buzzing to collect the facts and move on to find out about the next one. In maths we have been practicing our 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Singing songs, playing games and dancing to get the facts in our heads. In art we evaluated Roman pots and practiced different sketching techniques all in the build up to designing and creating our own Roman pots.

Well done these two wonderful 🦊 for showing their creative skills at both school and home! Well done!

W.C 13.11.2023 this week we began to explore multiplication in maths and solving maths worded problems, even coming up with our own. In history we explored how the Romans lived by investigating some Roman artefacts, we came up with some fantastic questions and ideas about who had used them in the past. In science we learned all about friction and tested how much friction different surfaces created!

Well done these 3 for showing what 🌟 they are for exuding pride in their learning! Well done team!

W.C 6.11.2023 second half term already! We have had a wonderful week back beginning our new topic question ‘What is art?’. We took our creativity outside to create art in nature. We had a cracking time in forest school this week, making sure we got good and dirty. Exploring what we can build and problem solve in our little wilderness area. We brought our our rainbow grammar cars to explore subordinating clauses, and I was blown away with how quickly they picked up the concept.
