Autumn term

Our class assembly went well and the children worked really hard. Well done for such a fantastic performance. Straight on to the Christmas play now!! Autumn 2 term is always a busy term and the children have jumped straight into their learning. We have been learning about traditional tales in English, which has led to some fantastic role play and vocabulary. The children have really impressed me with their multiplication and division skills in maths, the next step will be to learn our times tables. In Science we have begun learning about Materials and link this to our English work. We have begun learning about the Great Fire of London for our history enquiry and have started by doing some research about London. Super effort Year 2!

Fabulous First week in Reception

The Reception children have had a fabulous week settling into school life meeting their year six buddies and making lots of new friends. They are off to a flying start writing their names and reciting their favourite rhymes as well as  learning some new ones. Everyone has really enjoyed having school lunch with most children settling into the routines well.

This week the children have been challenged to learn 4 nursery rhymes – word perfect! Certificates will be given to children who complete the challenge. We will be doing lots of practice in school , and this will be a fantastic opportunity to develop their speaking and listening skills at home.

Thank you so much for all your empty boxes and packaging, the children have really enjoyed using them to make models. Have a fabulous weekend see you on Monday.

Back to school!

Year 2 have made a fantastic start and have settled into the new year really quickly. We have been getting to know the class rules and routines, as well as becoming familiar with our new classroom. We have also been learning about our golden rules and how we can promote them. The children have enjoyed learning about our class rewards systems and have already chosen the grand prizes! In English we have been learning about poetry and have even had a go at writing our own poems. In Maths, we have been learning about place value and learning what each digit means in a number. Everyone has been working hard and has made a great return to school. Well done everybody! Miss Robinson.

Musical Fun!

I always look forward to the start of a new term, thinking about all the exciting opportunities and events the new school year will bring. One of the most enjoyable activities I like to engage in during the holidays is to look for new resources, particularly songs for the children to perform either in class, Big Sing or Choral group. Mr Geelan has often commented ‘Why are we listening to Christmas songs during August?’ I like to be well planned so when a festival or celebration is upon us I have the necessary repertoire for the children to learn and enjoy.

I will continue this academic year to visit Unsworth every Tuesday, leading the whole school singing assembly and working with individual classes. Year 2 will be learning to play the Ocarina and Year 3 the recorder.  I will be responsible for the Year 5 Brass Wider Opportunities project across the year.  In the past we have many problems with the maintenance of these instruments.  If a problem does occur, please parents do not be tempted to fix the instruments yourselves.  We have an expert on instrument repairs who has the necessary tools and appliances to do the job!  Please encourage your children to practise their instruments, the sound may not be too pleasant initially but that’s all part of the learning process.

Choral group begin rehearsals in the next couple of weeks and you will receive additional information about this activity. Fiddler Music will continue to visit school on a Tuesday afternoon, so please remember your guitars and ukuleles. It is great to see we have some new recruits this year who have been added to the list. Bury Music Service are also willing to provide tuition if there are additional instruments your child may like to learn. Please visit the school office where information can be obtained.

The Bury Young Voices choir directed by myself is an out of school activity, however children from Unsworth Y5 and above are welcome to join, if they have an avid interest in singing. We meet every Tuesday at the Derby High School Inspire Theatre at 4 45- 5 45pm (Price £1 per session)

We want your children to enjoy music at school, so if you have any questions or queries, please pop in and have a chat.

Mobile Friendly

Over the summer our website has been optimised for mobile devices to make it easier to view. It is still exactly the same website, but when accessed on mobile devices it displays slightly differently so that it is easier to access the menu and items load faster. You can view the usual “desktop” version of the site by scrolling to the bottom of any page and clicking “Desktop”.

The banner at the top of mobile version displays the 5 latest blogs and in the top left hand corner you will see an icon that has 3 straight lines. If you click this icon you will open the menu, which is normally horizontally across the top of the main site. Once you find the item you are looking for you can click it or on the arrow at the side to further expand the item to find the exact page you want. Click on the item or specific page and it will take you there.

Our aim has been to make the site as accessible as possible, so hopefully the mobile version of the site will do this! We would love  to hear your feedback about the mobile version of our site, so if you have any comments, scroll to the bottom of this post and fill in the comment form, all you need to do is fill in a name and a comment.
