MESSAGE FROM MRS COLLINS

Good progress is being made on our green wall.  Two suppliers have now been chosen; Scotscape and Hedra Screens.  These companies will construct the green ivy screen alongside the carpark and the living wall section on the main gate.

After half term, there will be two weeks of monitoring by the University of Surrey to accurately assess the levels of air pollution prior to construction.  The team at Surrey University will then be back at Sandfield to complete the monitoring again, after the build of this green-blue infrastructure.  This will measure the impact.

Mid-June will see every Sandfield child involved in the planting of the living wall.  This is the legacy piece – with all children helping protect our school from harmful air pollution as well as increasing their awareness of the need to protect our environment for the future.

Co-Green Survey

Thank you to those parents /carers for completing our short survey on our Sandfield Green Wall project.  For those that haven’t yet – we would be very grateful if you could complete this.  Please click the link below:

Year 6 Post-SATs Celebrations!

As part of their post SATs celebration activities, Year 6 competed in the Sandfield Showstopper Cake Decorating Competition.  All six teams worked with enthusiasm, cooperation and had great fun ( and made lots of mess!) Our three judges had a difficult  decision to make as all their designs were unique in their own way and showed creativity and flair. Eventually a decision was made…and the winning team were overjoyed ( Will, Abeera, Poppy , Harry and Mathias).

A big thank you to Abeera’s parents for donating all six delicious sponge cakes from their cake shop, Cake Inn,  in Victoria Way, Woking.

NEWS FROM THE CLASSROOMS

RECEPTION CLASS

This week we delved deeper into the world of mini beasts and life cycles!

The children used their knowledge of caterpillar and frog life cycles to change the beloved children’s story to The Very Hungry Tadpole. This tadpole ate and ate until it became a froglet them eventually a shiny, green frog!  

The children represented their learning in art when creating life cycle models using everyday materials. They also experimented with different natural materials to creatively make a variety of minibeasts. 

We continue to watch the butterfly life cycle come to life with our 5 live caterpillars! The children have loved watching how much our caterpillars eat, crawl around and make webbing!  They’ve grown triple their size in just one week!  

YEAR 1 & YEAR 2

This week Year 1 and 2 have been developing our amazing mathematical skills!

Year 1 have been practising how to recognise and find halves and quarters and Year 2 have been learning how to tell the time to 5 minutes. Try to encourage your child to practise even more at home.

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

YEAR 3 & YEAR 4

This week has been another busy one in Years 3 and 4!

The children have been immersing themselves in the world of Pompeii and starting to write a retelling of the story of a boy called Tranio in ‘Escape from Pompeii’ by Christina Balit. They have been working on their sequencing skills and generating more challenging vocabulary to describe events and emotions.

In Science, everyone has greatly enjoyed being curious about magnets and what materials are attracted to magnets and why. They are building on their knowledge of forces and thinking about how magnets are useful in everyday life.

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 & Year 6 had a wonderful trip to Holy Trinity Church this week.

We were exploring the Christian concept of the Trinity and investigating the different symbolism associated with each person of the Trinity. The children thoroughly enjoyed the varied activities, which included creating their own stained-glass windows using coloured cellophane and tissue paper. Another activity was based around a Footprints poem where children had to draw around their own feet and write down ways they can walk alongside (support) others.

As always, the children behaved in a calm respectful way during the visit and enjoyed working together as a team.

SATS PowerPoint Presentation sent out on 25/04/2023

Residential PowerPoint sent out on 25/04/2023

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