Pickmere had great fun taking part in the House Captain’s Challenge this week. 


Tomorrow is Children in Need day, and our new year 6 House Captains decided to set us a fun challenge. After watching the example dance routine, a couple of times, Pickmere sprang into action and put their dancing shoes on. Head over to twitter to see our video!



Wednesday was Remembrance Day and as a class we observed the two minutes silence. Prior to this we watched Mrs Garner’s digital Collective Worship where she discussed why we observe the two minutes silence. Whilst the majority of pupils knew why we adopt the red poppy for Remembrance Day, many were less aware of the reasoning behind the purple poppy. They were all really engaged and throughout this week’s collective worship. On Wednesday, we were also had a visit from Rev. Angela, and as a class we discuss how we could grow as a school, a class and individually. 


This week has been assessment week and the majority of children have now completed all of their initial year 5 assessments. We have been really impressed with the children’s ability to focus during these. It can be sometimes be a little difficult to work in silence for up to an hour at once! Theses assessments are now being analysed by myself and they will be used to inform your child’s future learning within year 5. 



Outside of completing our assessments we have learnt about forces. We had lots of discussion about how forces can work together and against each other. In RE, we have been comparing various Christian places of worship from around the world. Children made some fantastic inferences and were really engaged throughout. 


Next week we have a student teacher joining us from Chester University. This week the children have met Mr Taylor virtually, and we are excited to welcome him into our classroom. Mr Taylor is due to be with us until the end of the Spring Term. Over the forthcoming weeks he shall be getting to know the children in and around the classroom.


On a final note, it has been lovely to have the opportunity to speak to everyone during this week’s parents evening phone calls. I now have a voice to put to the face’s behind the masks at the end of the drive, hopefully we will be able to have a face to face conversation at some point in the not so far distance!


Have a fabulous Friday everyone and a wonderful weekend, 


Miss Wild and Mr Ashworth
