My Amazing weekend

This weekend I went to a cottage and there was a hotub,consevatory,BBQ also there were a lot of trains going past and just Down the road there was a bridge where the trains went under and when they went under steam came out of the funel and it went in my face. On Saturday we went to Willington but we stopped half way because Santa came to us but before we saw him there was a man that went round and touched everybodies hand 3 times and if there was a spark you were on the good list and he showed us all two tricks . And then we went back to the cottage and I went into the hotub and then it was tea time and I went back in the hotub for ten more minutes and went to bed.

We went to Devon on holiday.  We had an amazing time and I will show you some pictures.

My ballet results

On Saturday I got my ballet result.  We all have shown our dance to our parents.  I passed my exam,with a merit,I was only 3 marks away from getting a distinction,which is the top mark!

Our teacher Nicola gave us a medals and certificates.  Afterworeds me,Eloise,mummy and daddy went to a restaurant for lunch.  I had steak,chip,peas and lots of ice-cream.

Hatching chicks at home

We hatched eggs at home in our incubator and after 21 days this is what we ended up with! Our first one is a boy so he can’t stay but we are keeping the girls.

Sophie’s weekend

At the weekend I went to my grampeys house to see my cousin how was visiting from Paris. They only stayed for three nights but we managed to see them for all three nights.  my cousins name is julial and on Saturday we stayed for roast. We played for hours.

Squirrel Bake off!

We have spend the morning learning to make bread. We have made Hedgehog bread rolls!

A lovely afternoon in Badgers

 

Well done to Badgers for sketching beautiful pictures of the Hindu Gods. You have also taught me some very interesting facts today. It was nice to celebrate by reading in the autumn sunshine!

 

 

The start of a new week


The sun is rising over the outdoor classroom to indicate the start of an exciting new weeks’s learning in Berkley school! The goals have been put into place (sorry…I couldn’t resist!)

 

 

 

APPLE STORE!!!!!!

On Friday we went to the apple store as a school trip.

We used the iPads. On the iPads we used iMovie and we made videos of us acting as villains super heroes and spies.

Thank you Mrs Hirons for taking us and thank you to the apple store for having us.

David Walliams!!!!

On Saturday I went to see David Walliams as part of the Bath children’s literature festival. He read from 3 of his books, Gangsta Granny, Ratburger and Windy Mindy. He was very funny. Afterwards we bought 2 books that he had signed.

 

My ballet exam

 

yesterday I went to ballet so I could do my ballet exam.  I had to have my hair in bun.  The examiner was helpful and kind.  I think I did well we get our results in a few weeks  Eloise did three exams they were tap ballet and street dance.

Buddying up!


On Monday afternoon Rabbits and Owls had a great time. The year 4 children have been helping the new Reception children to settle in and have done a brilliant job. We all had a fantastic time sharing different activities and making new friends. It was lovely to see the children young and older exploring and playing together!

Squirrel Class has produced some fantastic home learning

 

What a joy to see such beautifully produced home learning. Here are some of the pictures from week one’s home learning – to create one of Percy’s friends using a pine cone base.

Squirrel Class – The first three weeks

 

We have enjoyed our first three weeks of the Autumn term. We have planted like Percy, learned about the trees, experimented with mixing paint to match the colours of the seasons and sharpened our maths skills. Great learning Squirrel Class!

Head Teacher’s News

Headteacher News

The recent balmy weather makes us feel like Summer is still here, even though we are well into the throes of a new school year now. I have been extremely impressed by the industrious and caring approach of everybody working at Berkley and your children are very welcoming and only too keen to show me their good work.

I regularly pop into lessons and this week, it was a sight to behold: I arrived unannounced, to find one- to-one tuition going on in reception class, year 2 TAs were linking the pupils’ writing to their individual targets, year 3 were speaking French and Year 4 pupils were working in pairs, creating their own food webs. The challenge and the creativity were clearly embedded.

My first task has been to complete the School Development Plan, which drives our striving for even further success this year. You should be able to access this on the school website now. This has been a collaborative process, involving feedback from the pupils, parents, staff and governors.

The main headlines are:

  •   Under Leadership and Management: to improve communication with parents and amongst staff; seeking Dyslexia-Friendly re-accreditation; undergoing a mock Ofsted inspection in the Spring and further developing collaborative work with other schools.
  •   Under the Quality of Learning, Teaching and Assessment: to agree the ingredients of an outstanding lesson; to implement more strategies to stretch the more able; to review the homework policy and to further develop our teaching of literacy and numeracy
  •   Under Personal Development: to introduce a buddy system for reception pupils; to ensure the school’s behaviour system is clearly explained to parents; to include personal statements in reports and to further develop pupil presentational skills
  •   Under Outcomes for all: to show evidence of ‘deeper learning’ in books, to case study key pupils and to further develop global understanding.Please see the website for more details.Open DayWe are holding an Open Day on Tuesday 18 October for prospective parents whose children are due to start school in September 2017. If you know of anybody who may be interested in attending, please pass on this information to them. I will make a 20 minute presentation at 9.30 a.m. and again at 1.30 p.m. Parents will be able to tour the school and then ask any questions. Thank you for your support.Spare books

    As staff we are very keen to pass on our love of reading to each child. We are always on the look-out for books, to add to our collection in the classrooms and in the library. If you are able to donate a book to the school, please can you hand them in to the school office. Again, thank you in anticipation of your donations.

    Traffic issues

    As you will be well aware, this is an on-going problem for us, but we appreciate your patience and your efforts to help minimise the hold-ups. I know some of you car-share and the staggered start to the school day has helped, with some of you dropping off at 7.45, 8.15 and then from 8.45 a.m.

Place value

Well done to badgers class for working really hard to understand place value in maths. I have been very impressed with your levels of enthusiasm so please keep up the hard work!
