World Book Day17-03-2017 | 12:12:38 | 4 Comments

On the 3rd of March, Stanwell Fields had a World Book Day  to celebrate authors, illustrators, books and it’s a celebration of reading.

The teachers all dressed up! In Hawks class we made book character potato people and that was really fun (see pictures below!). Then we did a scavenger hunt to find books! I dressed up as Dorothy! We had a parade in the afternoon and in our class Amelie and Georgie were the runners up! Amelie was dressed as Aslan from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Georgie was dressed up as an Oompa Loompa!

What did you dress up as? What activities did you do?

Which potato people can you recognise in the pictures below and which is your favourite?

Young Voices23-02-2017 | 12:07:02 | 2 Comments

On Tuesday the 7th of February a fifteen children went to London in the O2 for Young voices. We sung a mixture of songs like five guys named, Moe birdhouse in your soul, sing, you’re the voice. We also met some singers like Charlotte Heppter and some beatboxers called the Beatbox collectors and some really god dancers called Striders.

We all enjoyed it very much and we travelled in our own Stanwell field’s mini bus. We went at around 12:00 and came back at around 10 or 11:00 – we came back safe and sound with a lot of excitement. We really enjoyed it.

Maybe you could be part of Young voices 2017!

Stanwell Fields New Pond09-12-2016 | 12:23:19 | 2 Comments

Hi,

I am Hannah and I am yet again joined by Brooke and Harley.

Stanwell Fields School launched a new pond area on the 8th of December 2016 next to the nursery to abolish the brambles! All those who helped in a way were there (the builders, designers, office, Friends of Stanwell Fields group children and teachers) and the area was covered in ribbons.

Councillor Evans cut the ribbon and we had a picture by the pond. It is a wildlife area so we will grow flowers and tell stories on the extremely bouncy astroturf. The ambassadors of year 5 and 1, Hannah from the blog and many others were the first on. The press were there taking many pictures!

There were a lot of green and white balloons and there are plenty of plant slots where we hope to see flowers grow in the spring!. The new pond is right next to the nursery window so lots of children looked out of the window to watch!

Comment below once you have visited the area and tell us what you think!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Fantastic Futsul!01-12-2016 | 13:55:37 | 2 Comments

On Wednesday the 30 of November, Futsul came to visit us at Stanwell fields to teach us sporty skills!

Kieran the coach came to our school! He taught skills from year one to year six. Year five went in the hall at 2:40pm. We paired up and he explained: “Number yourself into one and two.” I numbered myself one and my partner two. I went in number one line and my partner went into the number two line. Where we thought we were going to be playing together, we were actually on opposite teams!

He numbered us to one to ten (I was number six). Kieran called out all the numbers at different times after each match. We all wanted to play big match with all of us but…we couldn’t!

I thought futsul was very fun to play and I enjoyed it!

FUN FACT:

Some famous footballs in Brazil such as Messi and Ronaldo played futsul before playing football!

Year 5 Wow day01-12-2016 | 13:52:25 | 3 Comments

Hi, I am Hannah and today I am joined by Brooke and Harley. Today we will tell you about the year 5 wow day, which was on Friday 25th November 2016.

The day was about where our things came from. Hawks and Falcons class split into groups and each group was given a country to find out about. We were aiming to make a living museum (which we were a part of.) After we finished our minor project, we were going to present it to year 6, year 4 and parents!

We were allowed on laptops to research about our given country (and we got Bangladesh!) we built a model of a rice farm and made a huge poster and in the rice farm was the delicate, wooden farmer Bob. We were visited by many people and they earned our replicated Bangladeshi pots! We also earned a lot of money as well!

 

It was a great day to celebrate our learning in Geography!

Keep any of your passwords to yourself!

Remember to stay safe online at home too!

Hello!

As Bonfire night is coming up, we thought we would share some tips with you all on how to stay safe with sparklers! These are lots of fun but can be dangerous if not used safely.

These tips are from the Newsround Website:

1. Never put them in your pockets.

2. Never pick one up of the floor.

3. Make sure an adult is present.

3. Light them one at a time.

4. Wear gloves.

5. Hold them at arm’s length.

6. When it goes out put the hot end in a bucket of cold water.

Stay safe and halve fun everyone!

Poetry Competition03-11-2016 | 12:10:33 | 1 Comment

Poetry Competition!

This month, the House Captains are hosting a poetry competition for year groups 1 to 6. You can write any type of poem, for example: acrostic, rhyming, non-rhyming or any other style that you know. The poems can be about fireworks or autumn. There will be a winner from each year group, and the winner will receive a mystery prize, plus 10 tokens! Anyone who enters will also receive 5 tokens. Here are some important rules:

* You cannot write about Halloween because that is a pagan festival, and this is a Christian school.

* If you do a poem, it has to be in by the 11th November 2016, and winners will be announced on the 18th November 2016.

* If you do decide to enter, then you will first have to choose what style of poem you want to do. For example: acrostic, rhyming, non-rhyming or simply any other style you know or want to do.

* Give your poems to either a house captain or your teacher, and your teacher will give it to a year six teacher.

* Poems will be judged on the 11th November, 2016.

* You will have to include your name, class and your house group.

* House captains will not only judge on the poem, but on the idea, presentation and handwriting as well.

* Posters have been put around the school, and letters have been handed out in case you feel like participating.

Good luck to all who decide to join, and also……have fun!
