Stanwell Fields New Pond

Posted by stanwellfieldskidsblog on Friday Dec 9, 2016 Under Uncategorized

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!

Posted by stanwellfieldskidsblog on Thursday Dec 1, 2016 Under Uncategorized

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 day

Posted by stanwellfieldskidsblog on Thursday Dec 1, 2016 Under Uncategorized

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!

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:

* 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.

Year 3 Egyptian Wow Day

Posted by stanwellfieldskidsblog on Thursday Oct 6, 2016 Under Uncategorized

Every year group at Stanwell Fields always does a wow day based on their topic! So year 3 were learning about Egyptians and they did their wow day on the 22nd of September.

We interviewed some yr3 students and a teacher and we are going to tell you what they said down below!

In year 3 Leopards we interviewed Eleanor. We asked her what did you do? “We did Egyptian colouring and watched a film called the Princess of Egypt!” Eleanor said that she loved her Egyptian wow day!

We next interviewed another year 3 Leopard called Luke. He said he learnt about mummies. He learnt as well that they wrap mummies up in bandages. His table played a mummy game! He said the Egyptian wow day was fun!

Then we interviewed Miss Kleiner in year 3 Pumas. She said that they made headdresses and they wrote their names in Egyptian writing. They went on laptops and researched about mummies.

Finally we interviewed Annie in year 3 Jaguars. She said she enjoyed the colouring and coloured in a snake. She dressed up as a normal lady Egyptian. She liked all the activities.

Thank you for reading. If you have had a wow day, why don’t you comment below and tell us what you thought of it?

Tudors

Posted by stanwellfieldskidsblog on Tuesday May 24, 2016 Under Uncategorized

Hello, I’m Bonnie Ann and I have some facts about Tudors written in an acrostic style!

Tudor times. Tudor times was when Henry the 8th was alive with his six wife’s but two of them did not live long because they did not give Henry a son so he decided to cut their heads off!

Underage. One of Henry’s wife’s had a boy called Edward and he was only 10 when he became king. He died at fifteen. So his sister Mary became queen but when she died their other sister Elizabeth was queen.

Devil/died. King Henry was horrid but nice he had six wife’s and only one survived but the rest died he had 3 children and that was three daughters and one son they were called Mary, Elizabeth and Edward.

Over all he loved his children very much but the one that survived was a bit ugly! All his children did not have mum’s they had there dad because Henry killed some and one died by herself.

Royal. He married all his wife’s but set a law where he could get divorced so he divorced all his wife’s! But they lost their throne because when Elizabeth died she had no children to have the throne.

Six wives. I will tell you the order: divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived. That was the order of the six wives that did and did not live. Some of them were married for only 3 months.

These are some facts I have learnt. What do you know about the Tudors?

What topic are you learning about? Comment below!

World Book Day

Posted by stanwellfieldskidsblog on Friday May 6, 2016 Under Uncategorized

Hi this is Brooke, Dolly and Nycia

We are a bit late but we wanted to tell you about world book day at Stanwell Fields.

World book day is a day to celebrate book and reading! We always come into school dressed up as our favourite book character.

This is what some people has dressed up as this year: Cinderella, Willy Wonka, Elsa, Anna, Where’s Wally, Jasmine, Little red riding hood, Camila Cream, Harry Potter and many others!

In the afternoon on world book day you come to assembly and do parades to see peoples costumes. Each class had a democratic vote to choose the best dressed and then they went to be judged for overall prize winners!

In class we do different book activities across the school such as writing in role as the character we are dressed up as, sharing our favourite books and writing letters to authors. Year 6 wrote letters and have had 2 replies – a postcard from Michael Morpurgo (and did you know his wife grew up in Stanwell!!!) and a letter from Rachel Renee Russell who writes the Dork Diaries! How exciting!

What did you do on World Book Day in Class? Who did you dress up as?

The Festival of Holi

Posted by stanwellfieldskidsblog on Friday May 6, 2016 Under Uncategorized

Hi I am Saanvi and I am going to tell you about Holi.

Holi is an Indian festival, this year it was held on the 23rd of March 2016. During Holi we throw colours at each other and  it is really fun. I am going to tell you the true story of Holi.

The word Holi originates from Holika. Holika is the sister of Hiranyakashipu. Hiranyakashipu is a demon king. He grew arrogant and he demanded everyone to worship him only. Hiranyakashipu’s own son is Prahlada. Prahlada is a devote of Lord Vishnu. This infuriated Hiranyakashipu. He subjected Prahlada to cruel punishments. None of which affected the boy, Prahlada. Finally Holika-Prahlada’s evil aunt- tricked him into sitting on a pyre with her. Holika burned, Prahlada survived. Lord Vishnu appeared and killed Hiranyakashipu. The bonfire is a reminder of the symbolic victory of GOOD OVER EVIL. The day after Holika bonfire is celebrated as Holi.

How do I celebrate?

During Holi I invite my friends over or I go to their house. At my house we have a barbecue and we have powdered colours that we throw on each other. We wear Indian or old clothes so that our new clothes don’t get dirty. I put on henna mehndi. THAT IS HOW I CELEBRATE HOLI!!

What festivals do you celebrate in your religion? I would love to hear so comment below!
