Monster Physics App

Monster Physics is an educational app that lets young scientists play with the laws of physics as they build contraptions and complete challenges. Kids choose from fifty missions that let them solve such problems as how to get their monster through an obstacle course or feed it fruit.  In the build section, kids can create their own imaginative inventions and then test them out for fun.

What have we done so far?

In September the council held a class council session.

We asked :

  • Tell us the 6 most important jobs they would like the council to do.

 

 

 

 

You said:

  • The willow dome has become messy and needs cutting.
  • The boys are not keeping their toilets clean.
  • The y3/4 toilet door is broken.
  • You all asked for worry boxes in your classes.
  • You asked for more equipment for break times.
  • Wet play times are causing issues.

We did:

  • Wrote a letter to Mr Dean about the toilet door, it is now fixed.
  • Wrote a letter to Mrs Reynolds and Mrs Canning to ask gardening club to tidy the willow, this has now been trimmed by the council gardeners.
  • Mrs Channon used the Sainsbury’s vouchers to get some equipment for break times, this has been shared between classes and are used daily.
  • Worry boxes are in most classes and councillors will continue to ask for all to be in place.

The council met today with Mrs Channon Thursday 19th December to discuss the issues raised at the last class council regarding wet play times. In the new year I will let you all know what the issues are and what we are going to do about it.

Merry Christmas!!

Mrs Channon

Year 2’s Class Painting!

I have been really impressed with the children’s painting skills this week, as they have worked incredibly hard to sketch a part of our nativity painting and then paint it. They have also contributed to the background of the painting and made the ornate material collage frame around the edge. The painting will be hung in the hall for our celebration with the rest of the school of on Thursday afternoon. Have a look at the images below to see some of the children in action!

Music in our school

Being a music teacher at Christmas is just wonderful. I have had the privilege of watching the children perform in a fabulous range of events, both at school and in our local community.Well done to all our infants for their great performance of ‘A Shepherd’s delight.’  Seeing our youngest children acting out the story of the Nativity always brings a tear to the eye – the acting, singing and costumes were all brilliant so thanks to everybody involved. Our Junior children did a super performance of ‘Snow White’ where once again the acting, singing and costumes were all of the highest standard.  Thank you to all the parents for supporting these events, the children always love performing to an audience.

December is always a busy time for the children, and our Choral group have been in great demand!  Last week we visited Spurr House Nursing home to give a concert to the elderly residents and staff. Seeing the faces on these people as the children sing so beautifully is wonderful to watch. The children thoroughly enjoy this visit, especially the interaction afterwards with the residents, and of course the snacks and drinks we are also very kindly given!

I have just returned from the Parish church where the Unsworth Choral group are to combine with 3 other choirs in our music collaborative to raise money for Bury hospice.  This Carol service will make over £1000 for the Hospice so again thanks to all who are supporting this event. The standard of the singing is outstanding by all four choirs, where combined with a Brass Band and Bury Community Choir (starring Mr French) we hopefully will give our audience an evening to remember. (Report to follow in the next blog).

Can I take this opportunity to thank all the children for preparing so thoroughly for every musical event, and I look forward to another fun packed year of music making in 2014.
