Above All Compassion: The Story of XP School

Last week this beautiful film, made by Schools on Screen about XP, premiered at the Samsung Centre in London – how exciting! Now it’s available to watch on YouTube! Be sure to give this wonderful story a watch and share it with your friends and family!

Getting ready to learn

In crew we have discussed ‘healthy living’. We made a list of games/ sport/ exercise that we can do try over the week to keep us healthy, happy and ready to learn.

Reception at the seaside…….

This week we have been creating lots of beautiful work. We have spent time critiquing our own and each other’s drawings of sea creatures. We have also practised our cutting skills to create sand castles and beach huts. Finally we have been making posters about how to stay safe in the sun.

Inspiration from Punch and Judy

We enjoyed the visit from the Punch and Judy show so much that we have been making our own puppets this week. We have been using them to perform our own shows.

Investigating measures

We’ve been busy exploring measures in Class 3, firstly comparing, ordering and measuring heights and lengths. Our challenge was to find two people the same height.

We then we moved on to weighing and enjoyed lots of practical maths lessons to get us ready for some challenging problem solving!

Tranquil Tuesday

It was lovely to wander around our school this morning and see all of the fantastic things happening in our crew sessions – we had children reflecting on their howls, sharing stories and talking about their feelings using our zones of regulation. What a way to start the day!

Collaborative Critique

This morning in class five we have begun our final piece of writing for our Geography case study. We have thought about everything we have learned so far and began to put together some fantastic sentences, we then critiqued them to make them even better.

I can’t wait to read the final pieces!

This week in Class 4

This week we have celebrated BETTER WORLD DAY and we discussed what we can do  to make a difference and create a happy and safe world for everybody around us. In our expedition we worked on setting descriptions and worked together to make a word bank.  We had a great time when learning how to measure objects using a ruler and a metre stick.
