We will explore the human body and all of the wonders: head to toe, and what could happen if you mistreat it.

19-6-18 Science Session  

 

We welcomed Andy back to NCPS, nearly a year on. What kind of scientists and mathematicians have we become?

  • We learned the difference between a meteor and a meteorite.
  • We were able to apply and show mastery of measuring, converting and calculating mean average.
  • We made predictions.
  • We compared data and evidence.
  • We checked for anomalies in the data and repeated tests.

We're pretty special scientists and mathematicians, in fact!

3-5-18 CWttA Dance Session

We met and spent the morning with Lucy Blazheva, a dance teacher and choreographer, who worked with us to develop ideas for a project. The project theme is the Wickford Flood, which happened in 1958. North Crescent has been invited to contribute to an exhibition in September. Using Lucy's expertise, we were able to use our research and use a variety of movements to evoke water. It was such fun and so rewarding.

27-4-18 Maths games

 

As part of our revision programme the class played games to practise calculating and recognising fractions, decimals and percentages. Our class is working so hard and working together to make the most of every opportunity to make progress and show amazing attitudes to learning, by working together.

26-3-18 Balloon Race

We measured the distance and the time the balloon took to travel the distance. Using this data we could calculate the speed per metre.

CLC Poetry Slam January 12th 2018

 

Year 6 and year 5 took a trip to the CLC to join with Oakfield School and Wickford Junior School for a Poetry Slam event, hosted by Mrs Corderoy from Grange Primary.

 

Each class performed a poem we had learned by heart for the occasion; we read The Sound Collector by Roger McGough (https://www.clpe.org.uk/poetryline/poems/sound-collector)  and invented our own verses and then to top off the event individual children performed poems they had chosen and learned by heart for a competition. Our children were magnificent and performed at every stage of the event with pride and confidence - we were so immensely proud of them - bravo!!!

 

The Highwayman Time Capsule Education January 2018

On Friday 5th January, to carry us in to the new term, Tim and John returned to give us a unique insight into the poem The Highwayman. Our pupils were able to learn about the language and imagery in the verses through storytelling, historical facts, models and first hand experience hearing a pistol being fired.

To celebrate what we had learned during our history topic, we invited our families to a pop-up museum exhibition. Our year group set out their pieces of work that had explored British turning points, with a special focus on wars and battles.

 

Pieces included:

  • a drawing of in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry
  • black-out poetry using poems and texts from WW1
  • a fictional diary entry of a WW1 soldier, sailor or airman
  • creative homework
  • independent projects about WW2
  • a fictional persuasive speech

 

Many thanks for all of the parents and family members, who were able to attend. The children were thrilled to shared their learning with you.

WW1 Trenches - November 2017

To bring the past into the present, we made our own WW1 trenches. It gave us a taste of the effort taken to dig and fortify the trenches - the search for materials and problem solving to build and join components. By getting our hands dirty we were able to sense the cold and variety of textures that the soldiers, medics and cooks experienced day-to-day. We were able to imagine, more vividly, the cramped conditions and the hardships suffered by so many during wars and conflicts. This project will be used to inspire writing about the physical conditions and private thoughts of combatants. Lest we forget. 

Creative Writing Project - Music Inspiration Visit November 6th

 

We were very fortunate to meet and have session with a professional musician: Beth, who is a percussionist for the Royal Opera House orchestra, came to share some musical experiences. Following on from a course, led by Beth, Mrs Strange designed a session where the children would use classical music to inspire narrative writing. The session culminated in the children composing and performing their own percussion pieces to tell a story - in this case a battle to complement our History and English focus.

 

Glad to be back at the CLC!

We had a smashing time learning, exploring and making pieces of art and design inspired by Piet Mondrian, a Dutch artist, who worked in the first half of the 20th Century. Thank you to the staff and children from the local schools, who led the sessions and took part.

Maths games

Given the challenge to create their own maths quizzes, the children used PowerPoint slides and animations to make their work interactive. Here is some of their work.

Coffee Morning

After a great deal of work, to write our science fiction stories, we invited Class 2 to listen and share our finished pieces. Class brought some writing to share, about stars too. Smiles all round.
