Today is my last day at St Martin's School, after having worked here for over 8 years it's a very sad day for me. The school, children and staff are wonderful and I shall sorely miss coming here each day. Miss Brindley and Class 4 are fabulous and do brilliant things...keep being amazing, love Miss Andrews xx
This half term we have been learning about Anne Frank by reading her diary and moving on to writing radio play scripts based on her story. Below are the recordings of our plays, we hope you enjoy listening to them...
'Make £5 Grow'
We took part in 'Make £5 Grow' with Virgin Money. Virgin bank lent each child £5 to grow, the children chose whether they did this alone or in groups.
Over 12 weeks the children researched, advertised, made/bought and sold stock and kept profit and loss accounts. The children were very enthusiastic about this project as we gave them the choice of what they would like to do with any profit they made at the end...the decision being a day trip!
As the weeks rolled by, the profits began to creep up and by the end of the final sale day the class had made a total combined profit of an amazing £918.38! This beats the total made by any other school taken part in Virgin Money 'Make £5 Grow'.
With the money we are able to pay for the full class to enjoy a trip to The Forbidden Corner, the bus journey, lunch and ice-creams. Great work everyone!
We have been trying a new approach with our homework during the last half term where the children can choose which piece they do each week from a list of 15.
This seems to have been very well received, so much so that we decided to dedicate a display board to the work the children bring in.
There has been lots of baking (which is always gratefully received!), fact sheets, paintings and games, to name but a few. The children have used their imaginations and creativity to make some amazing pieces of work.
Class 4 children, as part of our history of medicine, did an extra curricular homework project on a period of their choice, to look at the illnesses and remedies of that time. The children thoroughly enjoyed their work and it culminated in an open afternoon for parents to come and see all their hard work.
