St Marychurch visit!

Posted by ks1blog on September 29, 2016

Year One and Two were lucky enough to have a visit each to St Marychurch this week! Year Two visited on Wednesday 21st September and Year One visited on Thursday 22nd September. They had a lovely time looking at all the different houses and shops that were around and it was a lovely day to have a walk- sunny with a bit of cloud.

House Points

House points this week have gone down a bit since last week. We’ve got the figures here:

Killer Whales-142 House Points

Golden Eagles-153 House Points

Kodiak Bears-190 House Points

Bengal Tigers-212 House Points

Well done to the Bengal Tigers who have won the House Cup for two weeks running!

Attendance

Sadly, the attendance this week hasn’t been very good, as Year Six unfortunately didn’t manage to reach our goal of 96%. The results were as follows:

Foundation Stage Two-99.3% (2nd Place)

Year One-97% (6th Place with one late)

Year Two-100% (1st Place. Well Done!)

Year Three-97% (5th Place)

Year Four-98.5% (3rd Place)

Year Five-97.6% (4th Place)

Year Six-92.6% (7th Place. Come on!)

Well done to everyone!

It’s been a great week and we’ll update you with more next week!

House points quiz!

Posted by ks2blog on September 28, 2016

On Thursday 22nd September, a house points quiz was held in the hall. The quiz was about England and was quite challenging for some people. Mrs Taylor was the organizer of the quiz and each and every house team enjoyed it. Bengal Tigers the were the very lucky winners of this quiz.  Well done!

The house point winners for last week were the Bengal Tigers, with a score of 212, in second place were the Kodiak Bears with a score of 190, in 3rd place were the Golden Eagles with a score of 153.  The Killer Whales were unfortunately in last place with a score of 142!

Congratulations to all of the teams for trying hard to get points!!!

Clubs have started now!

Posted by ks1blog on September 22, 2016

It’s our second week back and we seem to be getting back into the swing of school. Clubs have started; Singing Assembly is back and Year Three have had their first Key Stage Two Assembly. How exciting! There are several clubs that have begun including Cookery Club, Performing Arts and Netball. People have enjoyed lots of these clubs and we found that as a pattern all over the school! Well done to the fabulous people who run these clubs and good luck to the boys in Year 5 and Year 6 who took part in the football trials.

Attendance: 

Year Six won the attendance cup with 100% but shared it with Year One as they only had one child late. The week average was 98.8%, smashing our target of 96%.

How amazing!

There’s been a big step up for the Foundation Stage Two children as they have graduated from half days to full days! Last week, they were only in mornings and lunchtime. They ate with their mums but now they are in the hall on their own, something great for them! They start in the big playground in a couple of weeks. Here’s hoping they thoroughly enjoy their time at Homelands!

It’s been a great week and we’ll give you more news next week!

First Week Back!

Posted by ks1blog on September 15, 2016

Everybody in Key Stage One has thoroughly enjoyed their first week back. There has been a change with the teachers as Miss Shorland is now the Year One teacher. Attendance however, wasn’t very good, as Year One and Year Two didn’t manage to reach our 96% attendance goal.

On Wednesday 14th September, Collette (from the NSPCC) came for an assembly talking about keeping safe.

One of our pupils from Year One said, “I have had so much fun and I have really enjoyed having Miss Shorland!”

Another one of our pupils from Year One said, “I’ve had fun and my favourite bit was gymnastics!”

A Year Two pupil commented, “I’ve had fun and my favourite bit was Mrs Maskell!”

Another Year Two said, “I’ve had fun and I like Mrs Maskell!”

On Wednesday 14th September Homelands Primary School had a visitor from the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.) She came to talk to us in an assembly about abuse, bullying and what’s right and wrong! She came to visit each year group individually too!

We also have two new teachers, Mr Hobson joined year 3 and Miss Silcock joined year 5!

Children from year 3 have said that they think Mr Hobson is nice and they have enjoyed their time with him!

Children from year 5 have commented that they think Mrs Silcock is fun and they are having a lovely time with her!
