Raising money for Sign2Sing

Today the children have brought 50p to buy a cake as we raise money for Sign2Sing. We have a number of hearing impaired children in school and so this is an annual event which is very close to our hearts. The staff have all been baking (or buying for those of us who are culinary-challenged) cakes so that every child has the opportunity to participate. 

Chinese Dragon

Today was the first day that I saw our Chinese dragon all assembled. Every child in the school has contributed to the dragon by making one of the scales on its body. There are 527 scales altogether. It looks pretty fearsome I think.                                                                                                        

 

 

 

 

Construction Club Winners

I was very excited to see who was going to be a winner in Mr Hyder's Construction Club competition last week. The competition was to build the tallest structure and in the time, they built a tower which was a whopping 67cm high.

Congratulations got to Scarlet Whent and Tia Grossthall.

Well done, girls!

    

In the previous week, the winner was Ben Fallows. Here is his winning model.

Chinese New Year Day

On Friday 27th January, Sneyd Green Primary School celebrated the Year of the Rooster. We dressed in Chinese clothes or in red and yellow. We sampled Chinese food, made hats, dragons, lions and fans. We sang songs in Chinese and made lucky money envelopes.

We had the most fantastic day!

We would like to wish all of our pupils with family and friends in China a wonderful New Year.

Chinese New Year fun in Nursery - 25.1.17

I visited the Nursery children to find out about their learning this week which has been all about Chinese New Year. It was great fun. The children have been food tasting (yum yum), performing some Chinese dances, and making Chinese lanterns and drums. This afternoon, the children were making body parts and scales for a whole school Chinese Dragon which will involve a small piece of artwork from every child in the school.

I cannot wait for our dress up day on Friday. I hope that there is more food tasting going on.

Y5 Police cadets - 20.1.17

Today I had the great privilege of joining the Y5 police cadets whilst they worked with PCSO Justine. They were coming up with some wonderful responses to her questions and I was amazed at Mackenzie who had learnt the special alphabet code. It is great to see such enthusiasm particularly as they give up half an hour of their lunchtime to participate in the activity. They also look great in their t shirts and caps. The children were all Foxtrot Alpha Bravo!

I am so proud of you all. Well done.

FS1 Fun Maths Session - 17.1.17

This morning over 20 parents joined us for a fun maths session in Nursery. The staff had set up lots of activities that parents and children could share together reinforcing basic number skills. It was lovely to see so many parents working alongside their children.

We are looking forward to the other maths sessions coming up this week and next week.

 

Sneyd Green in the snow

What a start to Friday the 13th!

Children and staff were welcomed with open arms to a very cold and snowy Sneyd Green Primary School this morning. However, we are made of strong stuff here and learning has continued as normal despite the arctic weather. Thank you so much to all parents who braved the weather and brought their children to school. It was lovely to see them all. The cancelled celebration assembly will take place next Friday.

PC Justine gives us a dog handling talk

PC Justine visited us today and gave us a talk about how to react around dogs to keep them and us safe. It was a really interesting talk and everyone learnt lots of things. We really enjoy it when PC Justine visits us in school.                         

Y5 Tubing - PTFA treat

This morning Y5 went to Stoke Ski Centre at Festival Park to go tubing. This was in place of watching the pantomime and was a treat provided by the PTFA.

The children set off from school wrapped up in thick coats, scarves, hats and gloves and arrived full of trepidation for an exciting morning. But a great time was had by all. They started off on the small slope but soon plucked up the courage to go down the big slope. Even the staff had a go and there is a wonderful video of them all going down together at the end.
