Stiperstones’ Space Week Satellites 🛰

Wow! I have been blown away by the creativity of some children in Stiperstones. Your entries for the Space Week Satellite competition have been outstanding.

Well done to everyone who took part 👏

It was very difficult for Mrs Platt to choose a winner, as there were so many worthy winners.

Stiperstones Superstar 🌟

Star of the Week in Stiperstones this week is… Zahraa!

Zahraa is our star this week, for making an excellent start to Y6 and to Holy Trinity. Zahraa has only been at Holy Trinity since September. She has settled in amazingly and has become a great role model for the class. In recent mock SAT papers, she excelled, demonstrating what can be achieved when you give 100% effort.

Well done Zahraa, keep up the fantastic work. ⭐️

Space week in Stiperstones 🚀

This week it has been Space Week!

Throughout the week, the children have enjoyed participating in activities extending their knowledge about space.

On Wednesday, they  carried out an investigation called Moon Craters. The children spent the day investigating which moon soil made the greatest crater when a golf ball was dropped from various heights into it.

The focus for space week this year was- how do satellites improve life on Earth?
On Friday afternoon, Stiperstones were set the challenge of building a satellite out of marshmallows and spaghetti. They then had to carry out research to answer the question- how do satellites improve life on Earth?

Our star of the week this week is Lauren.

Lauren is our star of the week for being an amazing role model and excellent mathematician. In maths Lauren has been using her stem sentences to show excellent reasoning skills. Well done. Keep up the hard work 😁

Krasimir is our star, for showing great courage during his learning. The start of Y5 was a little overwhelming at times, but he has shown great resilience and determination. He has impressed Mrs Taylor and myself, with his excellent work. Well done Krasimir! 😊

Stiperstones’ achievements ⭐️

Another week has past, it’s time to celebrate this week’s achievements in Stiperstones.

We have had another successful and busy week in Stiperstones this week. Y6 have been working hard with Miss Kerr on their reading Comprehension, other children have been impressing Mrs Taylor with their place value knowledge and everyone have been impressing me with their hard work and positive attitude in class.

Our school Trust (St Chad’s), have organised a poetry competition for the children to participate in. The children all wrote poems about their ‘special’ places. It was very difficult to chose only 6 poems to put forward to the final stages, as everyone created fantastic poems. We had well written, beautiful poems about the seaside, the park, bedrooms, gardens and many other places. The children’s imaginations came alive, it was lovely to see.
Well done to everyone in Stiperstones, a special mention needs to be given to the six children below, whose poems have been submitted to the Trust.


This week in Stiperstones 📚

This week the children have been very working hard, producing some excellent work.

They’ve been working hard in maths, focusing on their place value, rounding numbers to the nearest 10,100,1000 and 10,000. The children have also been busy making numbers up to 1 million and comparing them.

In English, we stated our new unit of work, which is a narrative about a monkey in space. The children have really enjoyed writing character descriptions of the monkey. Some excellent writing has been produced. I’ve been very impressed.

I’ve also been impressed with how engaged the children have been with our topic, they had great fun producing detailed posters about space.

On Tuesday, there was an incident on the school field. An object resembling a space rocket, had crashed. 🚀

The children had great fun examining the crash site. We took pictures of the rocket and used them in our art lesson. The children were asked to produce detailed sketches. We have some very talented artists in Stiperstones.

Our star of the week last week, for making an excellent start to Holy Trinity was Mia Sorour.
Our star of the week this week, for adapting a fantastic attitude towards her learning and making an excellent start in Y6- is Ella Comley.

Well done girls- keep up the fantastic work.

This week all children were given their log in details for, Mathletics, Read Theory, Times Table Rockstars and accelerated reader. It would be fantastic if the children could access these websites at home.

It has been another busy, productive and fun week in Stiperstones. I’m looking forward to achieving the same next week.

I hope everyone has a happy and safe weekend.

Welcome back Stiperstones

We have had an amazing start to the new term in Stiperstones. Mrs Taylor and I have been impressed with the children’s attitudes to work, behaviour and their ability to adapt to the new school day.

We have started our new topic ‘Stargazers’ and have carried out a lot of research about Earth and Space. This week we have began to look at the famous anthomania, Galileo Galilei.

In English and PSHE- we have been studying the book- Here We Are (which is a book the whole school are studying together.) The children have all produced some fantastic work.

Our class novel this half term is ‘Cosmic’ by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. The children have made predictions about the novel and enjoy reading together at the end of the day.

Our new topic in RE is Sikhism and we have been finding out about how this religion started and retelling the story of Guru Nanak.

Our PE day is going to be on a Thursday. The children will be having their PE lesson with Mr Smith from The Wright Way. This half term they will be participating in activities to develop their motor skills. The children need to come dressed for PE on this day and make sure they have a labelled water bottle.

Earth and Space is our Science topic this half term, linking to our Topic work. We have been looking at how day and night is formed. The children on Monday had great fun tracking the Earth’s movements through measuring and drawing their shadows at different times of the day.

Finally- Maths lessons have been very productive. The children have enthusiastically approached their work on place value.

I have been very proud of the start all children have made to their Y5 and Y6 journey in Stiperstones. Keep up the hard work and great attitude to learning.
