    Last week, we continued to focus on the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We discovered paw prints in our classroom and thought they might belong to the big, bad wolf. We created wanted posters to find the wolf and made traps. The children enjoyed sticking their posters up around the classroom for others to see.

  • Summer Half Term!

    Year One have worked so hard this half term… All of the staff are so proud of how amazing they have been settling back into school life and throwing themselves into their learning. We have been extremely lucky to be able to regularly visit the Outdoor Classroom, this has helped to inspire our learning and is something the children have really enjoyed.

  • Les Souris Tennis Session

  • Year 6 Historians

    As part of The City of Norwich Aviation Museum’s outreach, Year 6 were able to explore World War Two primary and secondary sources by handling some interesting artefacts today!

    When you do research, you gather information from a variety of resources. These can be defined as primary and secondary sources.

    Primary sources give you direct access to the subject that you’re researching or learning about. They can provide you with a first-hand account of an event or time-period, represent original thinking and give you new information.

    Secondary sources provide second-hand information and often offer explanations for primary sources. They analyse, interpret and restate information from primary sources.

    Children looked at gas masks, a warden’s steel helmet and even a German incendiary bomb!

  • New Life in Year 4

    Have you heard the news? Ms Taylor’s fish have had babies!

    The newest member of Les Faisans!

    Year 4 also reenacted a gladiator fight scene in preparation for our writing. We used verbs and adverbs to describe our actions. E.g. I’m swiping you aggressively!

  • Angles in Year 4

    It’s been a busy week in year 4. We have also been learning about angles! The children are now able to identify acute angles, right angles, obtuse angles and reflex angles. We used masking tape and drew the angle onto the tables!

  • Girls’ Football @ Goals

    This week, some of the girls’ in year 3/4 and 6 got to take part in a football competition. The girls’ played very well with the two teams scoring lots of goals and showing great teamwork. They all had a fantastic time and represented Queen’s Hill very well.

  • Cross-Stitch in Art Club

    Miss Taylor, Miss Earl and Miss Osbourne have been busy in their after-school art club, teaching the children cross-stitch skills. They all designed their own templates, before choosing coloured thread to create their own pictures and patterns. We think they look amazing!

  • Romeo & Juliet: A Prologue!

    We have started studying Romeo & Juliet this half term. We watched a performance of the Prologue and dissected Shakespearean language and translated it into modern day English. We also looked at all the fun phrases we still use that come directly from Shakespeare; ever “worn your heart on your sleeve” or “been in a pickle”?

    As part of the first week, we re-enacted parts of the prologue in small groups and created tableaux stills (“living pictures”). The children did amazingly at learning the lines and dramatising them for their peers. Watch this space for more theatrical fun!

  • #WeWill Sing – Y5

    The children have been busy over the last 6 months learning the songs ‘One moment, one people’ and ‘When I Grow Up’. Today they got the chance to perform with other schools, from across the county, at Ormiston Victory Academy. They were also taught the BSL actions to go along with the songs. We can’t wait to invite you all to the final performance – watch this space for a date to be announced.

  • RSHE in Year 4

    In RSHE, year 4 have been learning about marriage. We discussed that marriage is a legal commitment that people make to each other to be in a loving and respectful relationship. We also discussed the difference between arranged and forced marriage. In class, we staged a wedding between two teddies to understand the vows that are made between people who get married. The children made a wanted poster of their ideal partner, when they grow up. We discussed all the things that make a good partner. Then, we asked them to think how they would feel if they did not have the choice to pick their partner. This highlighted the meaning of forced marriage.

  • Teeth in Year 4

    In Science this week, year 4 have been learning about teeth and their basic functions. We used mirrors to look at the shapes and sizes of our own teeth. Then we ate apples and considered the functions of our teeth. Finally, we wrote about the functions of different teeth and labelled them.
