Netherton Library visit 

 

Year 3 and 4 enjoyed a great morning out at Netherton Library to launch the Summer

reading challenge 2017.


They were entertained with brilliant stories, lots of props, music and they particularly enjoyed being squirted with water.


All of the children were impeccably behaved and a credit to the school.

 

Jeanette from the library then came and visited the children in school. If children don't read over the summer, their standard will dip. Please take part in the summer reading challenge to make sure your son or daughter hits the ground running come September.

Wear Green for School Eco Energy Day and 'Green team' competition 

 

All the children wore green today to share a theme day learning about sustainable energy. Holy Spirit has the Eco schools silver award and aims to get the Green glag award next school year. A new green eco team will be getting picked in the next week or two. All children need to do to be considered for the team is to produce a poster, poem, painting or power-point (or anything else such as a model) to help show the importance of being green and eco friendly at our school. The closing date is Monday 3rd July. We will be picking our new eco team ready for the 2017/2018 school year! Good luck with the competition.

Playing with the Halle

 

On Thursday 15th June Year 5 had the opportunity to play with the Halle Orchestra.

Over the year all the children in Year 5 have all been learning how to play a brass instrument and all their hard work paid off. Not only did they get to see the Halle play at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, they also got to play and sing with them. This is an experience that I'm sure the children will remember for a very long time.

Well done to all of the children and staff who worked so hard on Friday with their enterprise projects. Year 2 sold alien pencil toppers and chocolate marshmallow lollies. The photo-booth and fun props was tremendously popular.

Mental Maths Times Table Challenge: We enjoyed a mental maths workout today with year 2 taking on year 3 in a times table competition - followed by year 4 against year 5. 

 

All the classes came into the hall and children came out to the hot spot at the front and had questions fired at them - quickest on the buzzer with the right answer would be the winner!

Well done to all the children who bravely came to the front. 

 

It was a very sporting challenge - year 2 and year 3 drawing 2-2 and year 4 overcoming year 5 by 3 to 2 rounds. 

 

The children know that learning their times tables is very important in terms of doing calculation sums and solving reasoning problems.

Year 3 and Year 5 Business enterprise sale - 9th June 

 

We are running ‘Dragon’s Den style business enterprise activities. Today it was year 3 and year 5 taking their turn. Year 3 sold hot dogs and Year 5 sold toast, and made and sold loom wrist bands and stress balls! The class had a £10 budget, conducted research on the cost of buying materials, produced business plans and worked out profit margins. This work allows children to work as a team, listen and share ideas, think outside the box, understand the value of money and work out challenging maths sums. Yesterday, year 3 told me they had worked out they would sell 72 hot dogs and would need 9 tins of hot dogs (with 8 hot dogs in each) and 12 packs of buns (with 6 in each) allowing 72 of each!

 

Take a look of the pictures of year 5 selling their loom bands. 

 

Next week it is the turn of Year 2 and Year 4 to enter the Dragon's Den!

  Hinduism Day - Tuesday 1st November

 

On Tuesday all children enjoyed a Hinduism day. They enjoyed learning about another faith and showed great respect. The girls enjoyed wearing a range of saris and the boys tried on different prayer shawls and turbans. They listened to different stories about the Hindu Gods and Goddesses and danced away to different music. The children also learnt how to say hello in Hindi – Namaste

The lady who organised the Hinduism Workshop was very impressed by the children’s attitude and behaviour. She made this comment after the day. “Thank you very much for inviting me to Holy Spirit. I felt very welcome at your school, and had a wonderful time.”

Tuck shop launched! The school council's latest success has been to organise a healthy tuck shop. Year 6 monitors run the trolley which has healthy snacks to sell at morning break. The council organised the rules for organising the shop as well as arranging the prices of the items with Mrs Moore. Simple rules help the routine run smoothly such as good manners, taking turns, respecting the queue and avoiding litter. 

The new Healthy Tuck shop has been a real success
