Stixx challenge!16-10-2017 | 11:16:51 | No Comments

 

On Tuesday 10th of October, at Stanwell fields, Year 6 had a stixx challenge to learn DT skills!

The aim of the session was to  replicate some of the ancient Mayan ruins! We had to build our models out of newspaper but we couldn’t just use newspaper, first we had to stabilize the paper. Because of this, we had to roll it, paste it and power roll it. When I say power roll, I mean we needed to put it through a machine so that it could flatten and harden completely! Then we attach them with cable ties. After we had to connect our building. Finally, it was fished after all the hard work! We used lots of collaboration and team work!

Raising money for Macmillan.03-10-2017 | 11:27:43 | No Comments

 

On Friday 29th of September, Stanwell Fields School had a coffee morning mufti-day wearing green and white to sponsor Macmillan.

We had a coffee morning where student’s parents could come and have tea, a raffle and a spectacular cake made by Mrs Brown’s (eagles) daughter! It was extremely fun and we hope that we are able to raise more money next year! This year we are pleased to say that the amount of money exceeded the total of last year. That year we raised £649.33 but this year we raised £698.22. that is £48.89 more than last year!

Did your parents go to the coffee morning? Did you wear green and white?

Heathrow Coding21-09-2017 | 11:29:04 | No Comments

The new year sixes had a coding afternoon with Heathrow Airport on  Tuesday 12th September at Stanwell Fields School to learn about coding!

With Heathrow, the new year sixes worked on the laptops in groups to complete a coding challenge!We found out about different products that go on Heathrow’s Airplanes (which are called cargo). In the coding session, we had to program cargo trucks to load the cargo onto the planes, come back and we even had to program them to chat! The winners, who did that, were Reesy, John-Henry and James. At the same time as coding, we had to do a bit of multi-tasking because we had to solve maths problems.

 

We had a great time  – thank you Heathrow Coding!

HELP ALFIE BEAT NEUROBLASTOMA!!07-07-2017 | 11:11:03 | No Comments

Alfie, who is 14 years old, has neuroblastoma. Stanwell Fields have had a mufi-day and brought in a £1+ to contribute to the 600,000 pounds needed for his treatment.

The Thursday we broke up for our half term we had a mufi-day for Alfie and brought in one pound or more. People dressed up in sports wear and football kits as Alfie is a huge fan of Chelsea FC. We didn’t just have a mufi day, we also sold Alfie wrist bands. The money we raised out of the 600,000 is … 600 pounds!

Have you had any other ideas for helping Alfie? Don’t forget to comment below!

Y6 SATs12-05-2017 | 11:19:45 | No Comments

From 8th May to the 11th May, year 6 children completed their SATs tests. They have worked incredibly hard all year in preparation and should be proud of themselves. Mr Frankly said in celebration assembly that he was very proud and that if we see a year 6 around school we should give them a pat on the back! He said they were very mature and sensible and no matter what happens, they should be pleased with themselves.

Well done year 6. Keep on working hard and in 6 weeks times we hope you will find out that you got good results!

Are you in year 6? How did you find the SATs? Are you in year 5? How do you feel about SATs next year?

Viking Visitors05-05-2017 | 11:18:33 | No Comments

On Tuesday 2nd May, a visitor called May, from Chertsey Museum, came to our school. She visited Year 5 to teach us about the Vikings.

She showed lots of artefacts from those times. One of these was a Viking sword which was extremely heavy. You would have had to be very strong to use it! There was also a shield, a helmet and chain mail which John-Henry got to try on (it was made of over 25,000 metal rings). Most people think that Vikings wore helmets with horns on but really they couldn’t because it would have got in their way when in battle.

Reesy was dressed up as a Viking man and Bonnie-Anne (me!), dressed as a Viking lady. Amelie dressed up as a monk (even though there were not women monks at that time).

We got to play a game called Knuckle Bones which would have been popular back then. These were made out of the bones in animals feet (although the ones we had were pretend). You had to put them in your cupped hands, flick them up (not too high) and catch them on the backs of your hands. It was fun and Miss Leeks was really good at it!

Chertsey Museum have been in to visit other year groups and have lots to see at the museum as well if you want to visit.

Have you ever played with knuckle bones? Would you like to be a viking? Have you had Chertsey Museum visit your class?

Alive’n’Kicking31-03-2017 | 11:56:22 | No Comments

Hi I am Hannah and is with Amelie and Nycia and we are talking about alive and kicking. Alive’n’Kicking is a thing that gets people fit and working and every Friday year 5 do a physical activity alternated with a food and diet session. In our physical activity session, we do exercises in games, with partner or on our own in the hall.

In the diet session, we learn about the eat-well guide and we do many activities to learn about it and it is extremely enjoyable. First we learnt about our fruits and vegetables, then the starchy and carbohydrates and so on going through the segment sizes!

In alive and kicking we do lots of exercises and games like this game named pizza, bulldog, cigarettes , and there is a game where we have to go around the hall 10 times and do exercises when we get to a round. In that game, we do 10 of an exercise then we run to the other side, do 9 of an exercise then run. Then 8. Then run. Then 7 and so on!

How do you stay healthy?

Library Opening17-03-2017 | 12:58:27 | 4 Comments

Library grand opening

Hi I am Hannah and on March the 9th our library had a grand opening and all the ambassadors of the junior classes came with some of the Friends of Stanwell Fields. Father Stuart of St. Mary’s church cut the ribbon and then all of us poured in. The photographer took pictures of us reading our favourite book in the library and we all sat on the comfy seats. The library is mostly blue and green with many trees in the corners. The front of the library also has a tree saying ‘Our library!’ so you are welcome to borrow books and even to sit in side. But ssh, it’s a library! Enjoy the pictures below!
