MESSAGE FROM MRS COLLINS

Olympic Cyclist Visits Sandfield!

Today we welcomed Kate Strong, gold medal triathlete and holder of 3 cycling world records to Sandfield.  Kate is currently completing a 3 month adventure, cycling around mainland Britain on her bamboo bike, talking to schools, organisations and charities about what we can do to combat climate change.

Kate led a whole school assembly, which focused on setting yourself challenges to complete in small steps.  She told the children to never be frightened about “dreaming big.”  Kate shared with us her challenge, to be the best woman triathlete in the world and how she achieved this by training hard every day and building up her fitness challenges.  Kate inspired us all – to believe in ourselves and set goals that we can work towards.

After assembly, Kate lead a climate workshop with Year 5 and Mrs Grant was so impressed by the thoughtful questions the children asked. Members of the Eco team, then gave Kate a tour of Sandfield and talked all about our future green wall project.

We thank Kate very much for visiting us all at Sandfield and we wish her all the best on her exciting 3,000 mile adventure.  To find out more about Kate and her amazing bike ride around Britain, check out her website – https://katestrong.global/climatecycle/

NEWS FROM THE CLASSROOMS

RECEPTION CLASS

Another fantastic week of discovery in Reception! With our theme of the Very Hungry Caterpillar, we began to explore the world of miraculous Minibeasts. In art, the children were introduced to the idea of symmetry. They dotted paint along the middle of paper, folded it perfectly in half and pushed the paint outwards. This, like the Very Hungry Caterpillar, became a beautiful, symmetrical butterfly! Outside they made bug hotels and spoke about the various minibeasts that might stay. Inside, the minibeasts hid amongst the classroom for them to find and examine with their magnifying glasses.

In English, we had accomplished our biggest piece of writing yet! The children planted beans earlier in the term so they used their expertise to write a set of instructions with a list of equipment. They showed great determination with their sounds and used the picture prompts and word mats more independently. They even remembered capital letters, finger spaces and full stops!

YEAR 1 & YEAR 2

Year 1 and 2 had a fantastic week learning about the seaside.

In Geography, we have been finding out about the human and physical features of a Cornish town and the children were very excited to taste some Cornish fudge.

Next week, we are going to compare it with a resort in Antigua and taste some exotic fruit. Then we will have a class vote on our preferred seaside resort!

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

YEAR 3 & YEAR 4

We are very proud of our Roman Soldier guidebooks that we’ve written in our English lessons.

We know what the features of instructional writing are. Ask us if you’d like tips on becoming a fierce, strong warrior!

In Art, we have been studying Roman pottery and looking at the history of ceramics. We learned how to knead, slab, coil and pinch clay to create different shapes. Romans used oil lamps as their main source of light so we had a go at making our own.

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

This week, Year 5 have been enjoying some physical geography.

They have been learning about the different types of mountains and how they are formed – their favourite was the fold mountains as they were fascinated by the plate tectonics behind them. Human geography has also been a focus in class with a case study based on Snowdonia National Park. The children have produced some amazing fact-files which are informative, creative and beautifully presented!

Year 6 have been amazing this week! They have started each morning with a buffet breakfast to set them up for the SATs tasks ahead – it has been wonderful to see them all arrive smiling, relaxed and ready to show what they know. We are so proud of you all and your positivity and hard work. Have a well-earned rest this weekend!
