Easter Learning Project for the Whole School

Hello again everybody! Your teachers have been working hard to try to find a plan to suit all classes. Our idea is that every week (although this one lasts for two weeks), each class will get a plan for the week. All classes will have the same theme. This means that if you have a brother or a sister in a different class, you might be able to work on things together and share ideas. Have a look and see what you think. We hope that you will find a few things that you would like to do!

All the following plans will also be on your class learning tab under ‘Home Learning.’ Every teacher has written a letter to their class because it’s all a bit strange in school without you all and they definitely want to try to keep in touch.

If you’d like to send a letter to your teacher, than the best way to do it is to write it up on Word and get mum or dad  to email it to the office. This will then be passed to your teacher who will then write a reply, email it back to the office and then back to you.

Great Fun! ‘Now Press Play.’

Hello there everybody, we hope that you are managing to keep yourselves busy with fun things as well as a bit of learning while school is closed. Just before Christmas, we had a trial from ‘Now Press Play.’ Those of you who took part will remember the pink headphones that you wore and that you enjoyed the session.

We had an email from them and they have set up a page with four free activities/stories for you to take part in. If you have headphones then you might like to plug them in but you can also just listen without headphones.

Here is the link to their webpage of the free activities.

We hope that you will enjoy this and send lots of love from everyone at school. Xx

Carol Vorderman Maths Factor

Hello everybody, how are you all doing? It’s a very beautiful day and we hope you are enjoying the sunshine in your garden.

We thought you might like to know that this website from the maths wizard Carol Vorderman is now free for the moment.

This is the link if you’d like to take a look. There are quite a few videos of her teaching various concepts, as well as several maths games.

Lots of love, everybody at Nabb Xx

Wildlife Explorers!

Two of the children in our school go to the RSPB ‘Wildlife Explorers’ club at RSPB Old Moor.  They have been persuaded to take up blogging after their monthly meetings and their blogs tell us all about what they did at a particular meeting.

Their most recent blog was published about a week ago and you can find it here. 

As per usual, the Old Moor blog was posted on their social media channels and very excitingly, BBC Springwatch saw it and gave our two young bloggers this fantastic feedback. One of the Springwatch presenters, Chris Packham, also left them some great feedback of ‘Top work!’ As you can imagine, they were over the moon and we are all very proud of them. Do have a look at their blog, it’s a great read!

 

Fabulous Friday Afternoon!

Last Friday afternoon, Year 3 had a special visit from  professional artist Rob. Rob’s daughter is in Year 3 and he helped the class with various art techniques and ideas as they started to prepare an Egyptian collage. We all had a wonderful afternoon and would like to thank Rob very much.

Rob has also very generously donated one of his paintings to school. At the moment it’s in the Year 3 classroom but at some point will be hung up in school.

Nabb Tiger Band!

This week saw the start of something very new and exciting for a few musicians from Year 5. They started their own band – electric guitar, drum kit (not on the photo), saxophone, two cornets and two keyboards.

They are learning how to play together without music and also how to create their own music. The first band session was hugely enjoyable so watch this space for more news about the ‘Nabb Tigers!’

Nursery Sports Day

Yesterday afternoon we held the Nursery Sports Day in our field. What a fantastic afternoon it was too with plenty of effort, smiles and sunshine! Thanks to all of the parents who came to watch and well done indeed to all the children in Nursery. A special mention and thanks also goes to those children from Year 6 who made it all run very smoothly. Here are a few photos for you to enjoy.

An Upsidedown Rainbow?

Children in Year 3 were having a late playtime today and they spotted an ‘upsidedown’ rainbow! It looked like a big smiley face in the sky and Years 4 and 5 also managed to get to see it.

It’s actually called a ‘circumzenithal arc’ and the Met Office page about them tells us that it isn’t actually a rainbow. Instead, it’s a kind of halo and here’s a quote about them from metoffice.gov.uk webpage.

‘They are formed when sunlight refracts through horizontal ice crystals at such an angle that the light enters the crystal through its flat top face and exits through a side prism face causing the distinctive upside-down rainbow effect.  They are commonly associated with cirrus clouds where ice crystals readily form.’

Amazing!

More Fabulous Computer Art from Year 3!

Year 3 have been continuing their learning about how to edit and alter photos in the programme ‘Paint.Net.’ They have created some stunning work!

From Archie (and much better than the original we all agreed), a purple shieldbug!

And from Jude and Rosie, a wonderful creation from the original photo of a green sawfly. We loved the colours, the patterns and the graininess.
