World Book Week

What a fabulous week! Every class had a visit from an author. Oak Class were entertained by John Foster who astonished us with his poetry and tongue twisters. Kirsty from Abingdon library shared some excellent books with us  and told us all about the online library. We enjoyed being reading buddies to Maple class. Some of us turned the library into Hogwarts and entertained groups of children from other classes in our lunch-times. We even had a sorting hat! 

We spent a day on Shakespeare's Macbeth where we acted out the whole play in one day! Interestingly, we also learnt how to insult one another with insults taken from Shakespeare's plays....As we are studying life in Tudor times, enjoying a Shakespeare play helped us to understand life at that time in even more detail.

IMPS- First Aid Training

Oak Class enjoyed an informative morning at Abingdon Hospital learning about first aid and more importantly - DRSABC. Ask them to tell you about it - they might even practise putting you in the recovery position! 

 

Off with her head!

Oak Class began 2019 by re-enacting the Battle of Bosworth on the school field! 

Richard of York's troops outnumbered Henry's Lancastrians but the battle was won by Henry, who then united the two houses and became Henry VII, the first Tudor king. We are now writing newspaper reports to retell the story and creating our own Tudor rose prints. So our new topic begins.....

Term 2

We are now well and truly fascinated by the life of George Mallory, and are in the process of presenting an argument to say whether or not he was the first to climb Everest. In our investigation teams, we are proving ourselves to be excellent detectives when examining  our evidence packs. As part of our learning journey, we have planned and imagined an expedition of our own and created freeze frames of our adventures in our drama lessons. 

Interestingly, we also took a week to study a mini-topic: World War 1. It is 100 years since the Great War ended. You may have seen our poppies recycled out of plastic bottles? They are hanging from the Millennium tree outside Oak's classroom. In drama, we imagined life at the front and have written letters as if we were there.

 

 

Abingdon Cross Country - October 4th

Our sporting calendar has got off to a sprinting start with our first competition of the year: The Abingdon Schools Cross Country at Tilsley park on Thursday 4th October. 

31 children took part at Tilsley, having previously won the preliminary rounds at our school inter-house competition.

Daniel Bee, Harvey Taylor, Keiran Perris, Ellis Major, Jay Taylor, Lucas Chanoca-Pakisi, Ben Webb, Arabella Mercer, Maddy Rickard, Alexis Bardell, Chloe North, Lily-Mae McGuinness, Zara Tearney, Felicity Barringer and Bobbi Cookson were the year 6 children who represented the school magnificently by showing great courage, perseverance and good sporting spirit to complete the 2km course. 

Well done to all of you.

We were all particularly proud that Martha Soanes came 2nd in the year 3/4 girls race and will now go onto the Vale final at Buscot Park.

 

WELCOME CLASS OF 2019!

 

What a great start to the year! The class of 2019 have settled well into their roles as ambassadors for St Michael's, leading by example throughout the school.

Our creative curriculum topic until Christmas is Mighty Mountains. We launched the topic by climbing to the highest point in Steventon! Recently, we found  out how mountains are formed.....with bread, clay, balloons, vinegar, rice cakes and bicarbonate of soda...! We even tasted some mountains!!!! Enjoy our photos below

Thank you to all the parents who made it to the 'Meet the Teacher' session. For anyone who couldn't make it that evening, we have attached the information sheet  below. We are also available on Tuesdays after school - but if that isn't convenient, we are flexible!
