Mrs Di Giorno Another great worship Hawks. You spoke clearly and I think people enjoyed the spelling advice! This week we will be writing our letters and learning about homophones. We will also have five new tricky words - what do you think they will be? We will be continuing to learn about multiplication. The new tennis balls have arrived and I'm looking forward to PE on Wednesday.

Jess H Hi I am back in Banbury can't wait to see all of you next week.

Ava Hi miss Buswell hope you had a nice first day at our school

Jess H Hi I have had a great holiday so far I am missing everyone

Miss Sturgeon Wow Hawks!!!..... what a 'choccywoccydooda' sort of a day!..... We learnt about where chocolate comes from and talked about Fair trade and the importance of supporting livelihoods of farmers who provide us with such yummy food and drink ingredients. We even talked about food miles and growing your own fruit and veg on the plot/ garden/ windowsill..... etc .. The children had so many questions and thoughts about this, it was wonderful to see. We then got to taste 5 different types of chocolate. We wrote our opinions on appearance, texture and flavour..... mixed reviews on dark and white chocolate!!!! We then designed our own brand of chocolate including a wrapper design of our own. To top it off, we made Chocolate Rice Crispie cakes with Mrs Thornhill..... and got to take a cake home. What a chocolatey woccladey doodarey day. Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Jess H Hi I hope everyone has a nice week

Jess h & Amy Very exciting sorry Jess is not going to be there

Mrs Di Giorno Hello Hawks, I hope you have all been enjoying your Easter break. I have been busy; in the first week I went to Cotswold Farm Park and saw some lambs which were just a few hours old. I went with Mrs Smith and her son. Later in the week I met up with Mrs Reeves and baby Arlo (he slept through lunch!). I then travelled to Sussex to meet an old school friend - we have been friends for 42 years. This week I am planning for next term. If you are in my English group, it would be great if have a copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to bring into school. I hope you all enjoy an Easter Egg or two and I look forward to seeing you on the 22nd April. Jessica, I miss seeing all of you too and if you are missing school work you could play some tables games and work on your handwriting.

Mrs Di Giorno Hi Hawks, I'm glad you are enjoying your learning. The science was good fun and everyone knew how sounds are made. The photos and film clips are fantastic. They really show how our characters are feeling. I have edited some of the images and films so that when it's supposed to be night I have made them darker. I can't wait to watch all the films on our WOW day tomorrow.

Mrs Di Giorno We have been investigating sounds this week. We conducted a sound walk - listening in several areas of the school to identify different sounds. Compare what we heard at school with what you can hear at home. I can hear church bells tonight. We also investigated vibrations. I have added some photos of our explorations. Who knew rice could jump that high?

www.topmarks.co.uk

Mrs Di Giorno I'm very excited to be going swimming with Year 4 tomorrow - remember your kit including your towel and swimming hat. Remind your parents that they can pick you up from the swimming pool; they can watch you swim from the cafe.
All of Hawks and Falcons have PE tomorrow morning so make sure your PE kit is in school.

Mrs Di Giorno What a great start to 2019 Hawks! You have impressed me with how you watched the ThinkUKnow video about Alfie the vlogger. You could identify the problems he faced and identify how he solved the problems. You were fantastic in maths - really thinking about the place value of the digits. More online safety tomorrow and news about an exciting project coming up over the next few weeks.

Mrs Di Giorn Hi Amani, I looked on CBBC and found Art Ninja, Blue Peter and In the workplace. I'll show you them tomorrow at school.

Amani I enjoyed tasting food to day it was fun. I don't know any non-fiction tv programs. Can you name some please?

Amani I enjoyed art and PE

Mrs Di Giorno Great to see you engaging with our blog Amani. I'm pleased you're enjoying revisiting the column method for subtraction. It can be tricky to remember to exchange but with hard work and determination we'll get there!

Amani Today I enjoyed doing maths I enjoyed the colum method

Amani I wrote 5 facts in my homework book about Mexico because i couldn't remember them in my head. I enjoyed panting today I can't wat till we start to painting ourselves. I can't wait for the next music session and I can't wait to put the poppy seeds around the trench.

Mrs Di Giorno Year 4 were fantastic today; they thought about how mistakes help us to learn. They know feedback helps them improve and they are on a journey. They know that they have to develop a growth mind set to make the greatest progress possible. Great learning Swallows!

Matthew M I really enjoyed digging the trench can't wait to do it again next Friday.

Mrs Di Giorno Year 4 you have wowed me with your descriptive writing about the trenches. I really have enjoyed reading how you weave factual information into your descriptions. In maths we have been plotting coordinates and learning about clockwise and anti clockwise turns. Practise your quarter, half, three quarter and full turns. Why not play with a member of your family? You all loved learning about performance poetry in Guided reading. Try watching Michael Rosen performing Macavity on the BBC Off by heart website. Please remember your PE kits and outdoor learning kits every week so that you can be fully involved with your learning.

Miss Hussain Dear Swallows, I hope you enjoyed this morning! It was tricky digging the trench, good luck for the rest of the week.
PS. Thank you Zofia for inviting me to your harvest festival, I had a great time.

Swallow Class This morning, we enjoyed trench digging on the school field. We found hidden treasure! We are looking forward to more digging on Friday.

Mrs Di Giorno Thank you to all the families who came to our EXPO today. We loved having you in Swallow class and joining in with our learning. This afternoon we began digging our trench. We were very excited and worked hard as a team to cut the turf and start digging. I have put some photos on the gallery pages - watch our progress as the topic goes on.

Zofia Last Saturday a special Polish celebration took place, traditionally called "Dożynki", which could be translated as the Harvest Festival. In my country for centuries people were gathering together when harvesting was finished and celebrated together all their hard work and were thankful to God for the abundand harvest. Year 2018 is very significant for Poles as it is 100th anniversary of regaining independence of Poland. We are very happy and honoured that this year Mayor of Banbury Mrs Shaida Hussain joined our celebration.

Mrs Di Giorno Swallow class you have learnt so much about Saints; you understand that their words and actions can influence the behaviour of others and that standing up for what you believe can be challenging. On Monday we will be joined by two history experts to begin our WW1 topic with another great WOW. Remind your families to join us (Years 4,5 and 6) for our first EXPO of the year on Wednesday morning.

Zofia Today I went to the Safeguarding children in Banbury I colurd in my face then mrs Di Giorno so we toluoed echother things what we ar going to do in the afternoon .Then me , Jan and granny went to the goguls, the goguls made everything look difront .

Mrs DG Thank you Ethan I loved working with you and seeing you grow in confidence over the year. I'm so glad you're enjoying BGN; they are lucky to have you.

Ethan allitt Hi Mrs Di Giorno it's going really well at BGN and I just wanted to say thank you for helping me with my sats test and making me believe myself that I would pass them and I did. It has made me such and active learner and made me believe in myself that I can do the same thing with my exams tests. Thank you

Mrs Di Giorno Fantastic music lesson today - you listened well and learnt three new words - crotchet, minim and semi breve. Look for the video and photos in our gallery.

Mrs Di Giorno and Mrs Reeves
To start our WOW day for our new topic, Defenders of the Faith we thought about the qualities that make a person a good person. This is what we came up with;
honesty       truth       showing endurance       working as a team       showing compassion       being loyal       friendly       helpful       being kind       polite       thoughtful       patience       showing an interest       sharing       encouraging       thankfulness       giving       love       hope       wisdom       forgiveness       listener       peace
We then looked at other Christian Values.

Mrs Di Giorno and Mrs Reeves Wow what progress with your art drawing skills today. You used the video to help you think about the shapes, you experimented with the shading and you took the critique from your class members really well.
We are proud of you Swallow class.

Mrs Allum What a fantastic first week back after half term and great to see all the children back at school. Thank you again for perfect school uniform, book bags every day and PE kits. Can I remind parents that our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. As we move into colder times it would be great if children could have appropriate outdoor clothes (coats, hats, gloves, scarfs) but please can they be named, We have been working hard this week thinking about life in the trenches in our work on World War One and thinking about Right Angles and positional language in our PE lessons. We also had an interactive food morning on Wednesday. Thank you so much to the students who voted for my team (team Orange) to win the taste test - it is amazing what you can cook in 15 minutes. I will certainly be trying the recipe at home with my family and it's all healthy fresh ingredients too! Thinking about healthy ingredients we had a whole class Zumba warm up in our PE lesson this week and it was great to see the whole class taking a full and active part - we certainly had fun!
Looking forward to another fun packed week next week and our special Remembrance Service!

Mrs Allum Aww, Glad to hear to it Jess - Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

Jess H I can't wait for school

Mrs Allum I am glad you had fun Ava, You are almost right - we learnt about where WW1 was in history and we thought about how Queen Victoria died in 1901 and that World War War started in 1914 only 13 years later! Good Remembering.

Ava I've had lots of fun drawing poppies and learning about remembrance day and I know that queen Victoria was killed and that's when the war started.

Mrs Allum What a fantastic first term we have had in Swan Class. Thank you all for your hard work and awesome learning. I hope you all have a fantastic half term and a well deserved rest ready for some more exciting World War One learning when we come back.

Well done Swans you worked thoughtfully thinking carefully and showing our school values in what is a challenging subject to learn about.
We are looking forward to our Expo day on Friday where we open our classroom door to all those adults who support you at home. You are very much welcome to come and take part in our Maths and English learning in the morning.

Ava hi I am having a great weekend and I also love learning French whith miss steargen.

Zach Hi everyone. I'm really looking forward to learning about World war 1. I found out it finished 100 years ago and I really enjoyed learning about different religions and how they linked to water. It was good when me, Jess H and Jess F and Hayden and Charlie were helping the Year 1's with the journey sticks. And i really like doing French with Mrs Sturgeon. We learnt how to say How are you and hello and Salut!

Ava This has been the best week and I also hope you will get beter soon. This has been a great start to the year getting everything ready and I also had lots of fun at cross country.

Swans class Blog update!
Such fun and games we have been having in Swan class this week with our Cross Country event coming up this week and our paired reading last Friday we have had so many chances to show our school values in action and it's great to see so many swans rising to the occasion.
We had a shared class worship with year 4 this week and it was lovely to welcome the year 4s into our worship and share our ideas and learning together. We were thinking all about the fruits of the Holy Spirit and how these help us to be the best versions of ourselves we can. We linked this learning to our theme on creation and thought about how lucky we are, at this time of year, to have so much food ready available to us.
Even with sniffles, coughs and colds swans are really showing that we can be the best that we can be in all our learning and I would like to say a huge thank you to all those mums and dads, grandparents, aunties, uncles, careers and anyone who has a hand in helping supporting our class with this - we know it's a family effort to come into school even when you are not feeling your best and thank you to all of those who do this every day.
Finally, I would like to say it was a huge privilege to be voted this week's adult of the week – thank you to all of you who nominated me - it left me feeling very warm and fuzzy all weekend!
Looking forward to all the adventures next week.
Mrs Allum

Mrs Allum Wow Jessica, this makes me feel so warm and fuzzy to read! Thank you for all your hard work too!

jess H hi everyone i have had a good start to the year. I love school becouse i like all the new stuff we do.

Swans class Blog update! 'What's in the box?' the children asked with great excitement as our brand new PE House T-Shirts arrived this week. How smart all the children will look! We have decided to keep our special PE shirts in school where we will wash them as and when they are needed.
The children have been working super hard this week thinking about how to improve our writing by adding in adjectives and similes – you could say we have been as busy as bees! Our work on Water and its symbolism in religion is well under way and this week we focused on Christian Baptism. The children have been thinking about what water might symbolise for Christians and how this is shown through the ritual of Baptism.
We have also been practicing for cross country and were excited to show our school value of endurance in action during this PE lesson as we discovered how far year 3 and 4 have to run if they are selected to take part! It also made me feel very proud to see so many of the children showing compassion supporting each other and cheering everyone on. Looking forward to another fun packed week next week.
Mrs Allum

Ava I really liked water wow day because it was really fun to do all the activities
Swans class Blog update! Water, water everywhere... What an exciting wow day we had on Tuesday! Working across year 2 and 3 we explored water in its many different forms and it was so lovely to see everyone having such a great time learning practically and showing our school values in action. Check out our gallery page for lots of lovely pictures!
We have also had a whole school art day where we worked on pencil skills and portraits - Swan class is full of so many little artists and I was overwhelmed by the determination the children showed by keeping on trying and honing their skills.
After these very exiting days we then settled down into our Water topic exploring how water is used as a symbol in many different religions. Over the next coming weeks we will be exploring Christianity in detail looking at how water is used in baptism and bible stories.
Thank you once again to all of you who come to school every day in perfect school uniform with your full and complete PE kit and your reading records - it is very much appreciated!
Can't wait for next week!
Mrs. Allum

Swans class Blog update!
Wow! What an exciting first few weeks back to school. I love my new role as year 3 teacher and swan class are absolutely awesome! We have been super busy thinking all about water safety in our first few days back and this week all about Smoking and the effects it has on you and those around you. We read a class story together and thought all about how habits are formed and how some are good and some are bad. We made a giant cigarette to go on display and filled it with all the things that the chemical's inside cigarettes are also used for. We were surprised to discover that the chemicals for poison and batteries are also found in cigarettes!
We have also been getting fit and active very much enjoying some fun work outs and making sure that we work our bodies and our brains! Swan class have also been thinking about growth mindset and we learned all about the power of YET! So when we find something that is challenging instead of saying 'I can't do it' we now say 'I can't do it yet!'
Can't wait for another fun packed week next week - Thank you to everyone who has brought their reading records, PE kits and come to school in perfect school uniform every day this week. You are super stars!
