Lo que hicimos en español (otoño 2)

Time for an update on Spanish over the last few weeks!

MatemáticasY3 have been working hard on their numbers in Spanish, concentrating not just on recognising and correctly writing them but also on pronouncing them correctly. They're been listening out for phonemes and discovering the grapheme that corresponds, and then applying this to pronounce new words. They've also been doing some Spanish maths.

cuál es la fecha de hoy optY4 have been looking at numbers too, this time to 31 as part of learning how to write the date in Spanish. You can have a go yourself by using the image above to guide you! They enjoyed discovering the numbers through playing a game of dominoes, and worked hard on distinguishing between ei and ie in numbers like seis and siete.

animales domesticos opt

Year 5 have spent this half term learning how to talk about pets, applying structures that they learned in the first half term to talk about their families to talk abotu their pets. They'va laso enjoyed using their imaginations and writing about their pet 'elefantes' and 'tigres'.

triarama

And Year 6 have concluded this unit of learning by makiing triaramas, advertising what can and can't be found in their town. They enjoyed drafitng and 'polishing' their writing and then presenting it in a creative attractive way. Señora Stevens was particularly impressed by the independence of several pupils who looked back in their books and recycled language from previous years without prompting. 

Christmas Angel Design

 

Holy Trinity Church has launched an exciting Christmas art project to try to fill their church with lots of beautiful angels.

If you would like to take part you can print the  angel template from the attached link (or see Mrs Edwards in school for a copy) and decorate it anyway you please. There is a prize for the best designed angel.

Angels can be given in directly to the Chursch before 7th December or can be handed to Mrs Edwards in school by Wednesday 6th December.

You will then be able to view the angels in the church December 11th, 13th and 15th between 5pm and 7pm.

Good Luck and get creative!

Year 5/6 Hockey Tournament 31.10.17

20171031_171611_edited.jpg

A huge well done to our fantastic team who played in the Wilson Stuart Active Society Hockey Tournament at Bishop Vesey Grammar School - we are very proud of your excellent sportsmanship and playing! It was a very tense evening, with Mrs Mytton's nerves in tatters, but what an incredible result and we got to bring the trophy home too!

Well done, also, to the children who attended the after school training clubs to be considered for the team - you showed great commitment and perseverance!

The report below was written by some of our Year 6 boys who took part in the tournament:

'The hockey tournament was an incredible and competitive experience. There were 8 schools all together. We all arrived and warmed up, and were ready to go. We found out who we were playing against and the starting line-up for our team, then we got onto the pitch where the tension started to build. We played excellently and dominated against Maney Hill, with us having many close shots – unfortunately, it ended in a 0-0 draw. Credit to their keeper who made some good saves!

Next, we were against our main rival school – Deanery! Once again, we played extremely well and kept possession of the ball for most of the match. This time, we pulled it off successfully with a 1-0 win to Whitehouse Common! Woo! It was a fantastic feeling and all our supporters were in high spirits – including our biggest supporter, Mrs Mytton, whose nerves were now gathering back together!

We had a short and well-deserved break while Maney Hill and Deanery played each other. It was pretty tense, as if Maney Hill won then we would have to go into a penalty shoot-out. Maney Hill ended up winning and so it was at this point that we sent Mrs Mytton’s nerves into shatters as we had to have the penalty shoot-out. The pressure was on and we both did so well that it kept going and going. Unlucky for us on the final shots, we missed one and Maney Hill managed to score. But never mind, we were proud of our match playing. Fortunately, we were still through to the semi-final as the runners-up.

In the semi-final, we were against Moor Hall. We found this match a little easier as we had had a break. We played incredibly well again, keeping the pressure on and making some great saves. Thankfully, we were successful in scoring and won 1-0…we were through to the final!

When we got the final game pitch, we saw our opponents… Maney Hill! Again, this was an incredibly close game with both teams playing well and us keeping on the pressure. We had some close shots but the match ended up going into extra time as we were at 0-0! At this point, the game could go either way, but we were confident as we had had some good possession. All of a sudden, the lights went out and we were plunged into darkness! Bishop Vesey couldn’t get them back on after us waiting for 15 minutes so we had to end the tournament. Frustratingly for us, the only way to decide an overall winner was to go back to the penalty shoot-out with Maney Hill (because our other matches were 0-0 and we had won the same amount of matches in the tournament) so we ended up taking home the silver medals!

Because of the situation and how close it was, Wilson Stuart decided that it was only fair we split the trophy so we came home with it for the first 6 months!’

Whitehouse Common look forward to more success next year!

The stamps must be used. Please tear the stamps off the envelope, leaving a 1cm border around the edge. There's a stamp box outside the Oaks office to post the used stamps in.

WCPS will also be competing against Hollyfield to see which school can collect the most. We're keen to keep our three year winning reign!
