  • Victorian Day

    Published 17/12/21

    Year 5 travelled back in time to a Victorian day in 1862. We had lessons including singing the National Anthem, chanting times tables, handwriting practise and sketching objects from the natural environment. Some of us brought our packed lunch in a tea towel just like the Victorian children used to. At the end of the day, we took some serious Victorian photos and some of us smiling, then we played a game of Hide and Seek. We got back into our time machines and were so happy to have our normal teachers back-those Victorian teachers were pretty scary!

  • Year 3 Stone Age Activity Day

    Published 17/12/21

    Year 3 delve into the past!

    ​Year 3 have been learning about the Stone Age as part of their History topic. On Tuesday 30th November as a finale  they enjoyed a fun packed 'Stone Age Activity Day' .

    They watched video clips about the Paleolithic, the Mesolithic and the Neolithic times and discussed the changes that took place in the materials they used (stone, bronze and iron)   the change from hunting and then to settling in one place and rearing farm animals for food. 

    All the children enjoyed a variety of Stone Age related activities. They made a magnetic fishing game to test their skills in hunting. Baking biscuits using spelt flour, vegan butter and other ingredients was a great learning experience. They engaged in a bit of weaving using wool and card. Biscuit Henge got them excited! This involved them using biscuits to make a 'Stone Henge'! I hasten to add that they took their own biscuits home to eat!! Year 3 also made and decorated masks. They learnt that in the Iron Age the tribal warriors would paint their faces to scare off the enemy. 

    The children thoroughly enjoyed their 'Stone Age' experience. History did come alive at Roxeth!

    For the last 3 weeks, the year 1 students have been learning about fairy tale stories. In the first week, we read different tales and looked at the parts of the stories exploring the characters, settings, problems, and solutions. We also learnt to make connections with each story and even wrote our own page for a fairy tale story. 1A shared their learning with the infant school in an assembly explaining what fairy tale stories are and some of the students even read ‘The Three Billy Goat Gruff’.

  • Year 2 Play

    Published 16/12/21

    Year 2 performed brilliantly last Friday during the Nativity Play. This was the first performance they had done in front of the school and yet they displayed amazing confidence! The children have worked very hard to remember their speaking lines, the songs and all of the actions. Some characters from the nativity story, such as shepherds, wise men and angels did brilliantly to stay in role throughout the scenes. A great sense of pride could be felt from Year 2 when they received a rapturous applause from the audience. A massive well done from all of the Year 2 team.

    Published 06/12/21

    Dear parents and carers,

    It is with great pride that I would like to inform all about a new book called ‘Your Soulful Companion’ written by Mrs Aliraza that has been published recently. It is a fantastic achievement and one that we are very excited about! Get your own copy today from Amazon!

    Mr Deanus’ review:

    “A wonderful book that is not only inspiring but thought provoking too. The quotes in this book certainly make you reflect about the everyday life experiences. I love the illustrations and the simplicity of the book that allow you to pick it up and take something from it. The handwritten aspect certainly gives it a personal touch”.
