Winners!

At Calpe School, our KS1&2 pupils have access to the Active Learn website which allows them to read English books, play maths games and enjoy online grammar, spelling and punctuation activities to further their learning at home. As an incentive, we offer a prize to pupils who consistently log on and engage in these activities. Our winners for the summer term are pictured below. Mark also won the mosaic which Year 3, 4 & 5 excavated and put together during their work on Romans.  Well done, everyone!

Railway Debate

In Literacy class, Year 3 children took part in a mock Town Hall debate, discussing the age of the railway in role as a character from history. As a class, they considered the pros and cons of railways and the different opinions that were held by people at the time (in the early 1800s). In the debate, the children put across their points of view about the idea of a railway being built. They enjoyed preparing their speech and saying it out loud with expression and wearing costumes or using props. Such great acting, Year 3!

Wonderful Weather Reports

Year 2 have been learning about the weather here in Spain. They have also been learning about Seaside Resorts, Capital Cities and mountains in the U.K. The class combined their knowledge of these topics and presented their own weather reports using cardinal points and weather terminology such as sunny spells, blustery winds and thundery showers.

Brilliant Bakers!

Year 3 class learned how to make bread and used the right tools to slice, mix, spread, bake and knead. During this activity, they practised weighing ingredients accurately. They learned new vocabulary such as loaf, yeast, dough and kneading and learned how to use kitchen tools carefully. The children really enjoyed eating their fresh loaves of bread as the end of the day and they had brought special spreads to eat them with! Delicious!

Reception’s Rockets

The children in Reception arrived at school a few weeks ago to find underpants hanging on a washing line in the playground and the classroom. They had strange green handprints on them!  After reading the story ‘Aliens Love Underpants’, the class decided that aliens must have been to the gardens near the school, stolen the underpants and dropped them as they were flying back to their planet! The children were inspired to draw and write about aliens, rockets and trips to the moon. They made their own rockets using junk modelling items, drew the planets using pastels and sequenced the planets too. The children also chose to make their own books about the planets and really enjoyed creating a space station outside using the boxes and crates. They also enjoyed wearing the jet pack made from large water bottles to explore the moon.
