Week Beginning 18 April 2016

Year 5 and 6 Sports Morning on Wednesday 11 May (8.45am – 12.50pm) at Secondary Sports Field. The students have been busy in their houses organising and choosing their events. All students will have the opportunity to participate in a minimum of 2 events. There is also an option to take part in a fun tug-of-war and house team skipping. After registration, the students will assemble on the Secondary Sports Field. The day will begin with a warm up and stretches. The events have been designed around the FOBISIA designated athletic events. Years 5 and 6 students have been using curricular PE lessons to practice their events. Certain events (track, high jump, skipping and tug of war) will be timetabled events. The remaining events of; long, triple, or three springs jump; quoit throw; shot putt and basketball push are non- timetabled events. This means that competitors can freely move around these events and perform when they have the chance.


  • Saturday 23 April is the annual Garden Party which this year has “a twist of Shakespeare” as the theme. Again this year, we want to encourage students, teachers and parents to wear a great hat – the more unique the better. Flamboyant, fabulous and even more fantastic if you can link it to the Shakespeare theme!
  • To add some variety we are also adding a new challenge this year. We want you to design your very own shield. You could go for a traditional design, a futuristic one or even one with a Shakespeare theme. Big or small – it is up to you but again we want you to show your imagination and creativity.
  • There will be a Hat and Shield Parade and prizes for the most outstanding designs. So get busy and creative and come along and join the fun of the Garden Party on Saturday 23 April.
  • Now the weather is getting warmer, please could you encourage your child to bring in a hat and also a water bottle so that they remain well hydrated during the day.
  • Term 3 Second Hand Uniform Sale  3.00pm – 4.30pm on Monday 25 April in the Gallery.


In Literacy the children will spend the next 2 weeks focusing on Poetry. First of all the children will experience reading and performing a selection of poems both individually as well as part of a group. During this work they will explore intonation, tone and volume and challenge themselves to learn a selection of poems by heart. The children will also build on the rhyming work covered by our visiting poet in Term 1 as they edit and perform a rap.


In Maths this week the children will be learning how to convert units of time. They will be converting seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years. They will also convert between digital and analogue times and express these in words. Towards the end of the week the children will complete a variety of word problems that will require them to apply their knowledge of conversions in order to answer the questions correctly.



This week the children will be reflecting on last week’s entry point where they took part in a series of astronaut training exercises. The children will be using these experiences to investigate and research what life would be like for an astronaut. They will discover what life is like inside the space station. They will also discover what the most challenging apects of being an astronaut are. We will look specifically at the British astronaut Tim Peake and will find out how astronauts sleeps, eats and goes to the toilet! They will also find out how to apply to be an astronaut and what training is needed to become one.


Dit was het nieuws

Na de vakantie vervolgen we het thema ‘Dit was het nieuws’. De Razende Reporters van SDS zullen sportwedstrijden verslaan, een podcast maken en uiteraard verder werken aan het Dagblad van SDS.

Spelling en woordbeeld

We herhalen met spelling de klanken. Meertalige kinderen hebben vaak moeite met klankzuivere uitspraak van woorden en het onderscheiden van korte klanken (bakken, fikkie, ram) en lange klanken (raam, bomen, vuren, familie). Zeker wanneer de woorden langer worden en er in een woord meerdere spellingmoeilijkheden voorkomen, zien we dat leerlingen in de war raken.

Bi(e)bbezoek en Estafette

Denk aan het meenemen van de bi(e)bboeken op maandag (Year 3, 5 en 6) en dinsdag (Year 4). Estafette doen we op maandag (Year 3, 5 en 6) en donderdag (Year 4).
