Wow! It was extremely hard to choose a winner for the calendar challenge set over Christmas. The children that entered all created some fantastic designs. It was nice to see how different some were too! Not any one design looked the same.
I have decided to have two winners, as I couldn’t choose between them and one runner up!
The WINNERS are:
Alfie Crossley- for your lovely use of materials and showing the four seasons using the life journey of a tree throughout the year.
Olivia Brant- for your ‘outside the box’ thinking. Your lovely use of a photo collage with memories from previous years was a beautiful idea.
I will be in next week to present your prize and 25 housepoints.
The RUNNER UP is:
Mikey Gregory- your beautiful collage uses many materials and many seasonal ideas! It’s extremely eye catching!
I will be in next week to present you with your 15 housepoints.
Thank you to everyone who entered their calendar, I hope you enjoyed making them as much as I enjoyed seeing them. I have made sure that all posts were approved before making the decision and apologise in advance if anyone had trouble uploading their image!
Enjoy your weekend Class 8. I’ll see you at some point next week 😁
As we have been EXTRA busy this term, we run out of time to make our annual calendars. SO… I thought I would set one last challenge for you all before I go.
In your wallet, you have two pieces of card and a calendar tab.
I would like to you be both inventive and creative . There will be a prize and housepoints for the winner and housepoints for the runner up. You can use the resources provided or choose your own but your final design must be sporting the calendar tab.
The winner will be announced on the 11th January 2019.
Please add pictures of your calendars to the blog so I can judge them 🙂
Well done Class 8 for all your hard work this term, you have put in huge amounts of effort and this has definitely paid off. You have achieved some fantastic things!
Thank you parents/carers for all your support throughout this term, it has been a hard one but I hope that you agree with me when I say that WE MADE IT THROUGH and we did an awfully good job of it! The progress of the children from September to now has been AMAZING. I, am certainly an extremely proud teacher.
We would also like to take this time to thank you for your well wishes, cards and gifts. It is greatly appreciated.
So… Here’s the homework. Please have ALL the fun completing the photo challenge. I would love to see photos and blog posts over Christmas! Just a reminder that the photos do not need to be taken in any specific order.
How many can you complete?
Lastly, HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and an extremely Happy New Year.
Over the last couple of week we have delved in to all aspects of 2d and 3d shapes! We have looked at their properties (including types of angles, lines, sides/edges, corners/vertices, faces), built some fantastic 3d models to help Sherlock and even explored the different nets that make up 3d shapes.
For your homework this week I would like you to apply this learning out in the big wide WORLD! Whilst you are at home or out and about this week can you spot any shapes in real life objects?
What shape does my Christmas tree best resemble? Can you tell me about its properties? How many faces does it have? Tell me ALL about it.
What shapes can you spot? Tell me ALL about its properties.
To get in to the festive spirit this year, we’re introducing a little competition and Christmas cheer in to each class in school!
Each class got the opportunity to pick a song name out of a hat in Monday’s assembly. There were many classic Christmas songs to choose from. As a class we have until next Friday to learn our song and perform it the best on the day!
Class 8 our song is ‘Let it Snow’- covered by many artists including Bing Crosby and Dean Martin.
