MESSAGE FROM MRS COLLINS

PTA Quiz Night

A big thank you to the members of the PTA who kindly organised the Sandfield Quiz last Friday.  The evening was hosted expertly by Paul and Katie Bridge and the music round by Jenni March.  It was a very close competition and just won right at the end by the staff team!

The quiz raised £400 towards our School projects this year and this money will go towards new books for the library.  Thank you to all those parents that came along to support and join in the fun.

World Book Day

It was lovely coming to school yesterday in our pyjamas and onesies, this made getting up so much easier!  It was great to be introduced to the children’s much loved teddies.   All the cuddly toys had a lovely day at school too!  Sandfield children really enjoyed the day and the joy of reading was celebrated in every classroom.

NEWS FROM THE CLASSROOMS

RECEPTION CLASS

Another exciting week in Reception as we celebrate St.David’s Day and World Book day!

We explored things often associated with Wales such as leeks, sheep, Welsh cakes and daffodils! We worked together to recreate a giant Welsh flag with the famous red dragon too! In art, we looked closely at a bouquet of daffodils – the national flower of Wales, noting the unique shape of their petals. Using pencil, the children sketched them and painted our first still life painting of them.  

The children learnt about Coats of Arms this week. They found out that knights and royals used them in the past to present their families. In small groups, they discussed what is special to them or what makes them special. They created their very own Coat of Arms to represent themselves and shared these with their friends. These can now be seen hanging up proudly on our classroom wall opposite the role-play castle! 

The highlight for most of us was wearing pyjamas to celebrate reading on World Book Day! We designed our own bookmarks, explored books from different cultures and had a bedtime reading pyjama party with our teddies!

YEAR 1 & YEAR 2

We have had another exhilarating week in Year 1 and Year 2, with a visit to Holy Trinity Church.

The theme of the morning was learning all about "Who was Jesus?" and they did this by learning about the miracles he performed and enjoyed the parable of the "Good Samaritan".  Finally they listened to the story of Zacchaeus and created some beautiful art work.

REMINDER: P.E days for Year 1 is  Monday and Year 2 is Tuesday.

YEAR 3 & YEAR 4

This week we started making our volcano models.

We had to use newspaper and a toilet roll as a base to build up the domed shape. We then secured it with masking tape ready to use paper mache next week – great team work!

We all enjoyed relaxing in our pyjamas on Thursday and listening to stories from different cultures. We read a Chinese folk tale about a magic paintbrush and an aboriginal story about the rainbow serpent.

Reminders: PE on Wednesday (outside) & Thursday indoors (shorts and t-shirts will also be needed)

Year 4 String Scheme takes place every Friday, please ensure all instruments are in school.

YEAR 5 & YEAR 6

Year 5 & 6 have enjoyed another busy week.

In English, we have explored the use of figurative language in our exciting text ‘Viking Boy’. This inspired us to write our own sentences using personification, similes and metaphors, which we will use in our own narratives.

We had great fun in History learning how Vikings were superb seamen and used Longships for travelling – we were so impressed they were able to navigate without any of the modern equipment we use today. Imagine life without technology…?!

REMINDER: P.E. days for Year 5 is Tuesday and Wednesday and Year 6 is Tuesday & Thursday.
