Reading Certificates February 2018

Congratulations to the following children for receiving their reading certificates for reading three or more times a week this half term. The biggest gift you can give your children is to get them reading and praise them when they choose to do so without being asked. If children are motivated to do something on their own they will do so much better in the long run. We thank you for all the help and support you give your children with Reading.

At Kimberworth Community Primary School we are beginning to develop the children’s understanding of technology through the use of a 3D printer.

The children are really amazed at the fact they can design pretty much anything they want and can print it out to develop a 3D model.
So far we’ve used the printer in school as part of enterprise work, making and selling Christmas decorations which the children also decorated using glitter.

 

We’ve also brought it into the curriculum and linked it into Ancient Egyptian Work in Year Five this half term where children have used the TinkerCad Software to design and make 3D cartouches using hieroglyphics.


The scheme has been really inspirational and is driving learning forward as technology advances. 

Over the next 2 years, we plan to embed the use of the 3D printer across the curriculum and ensure that children are regularly provided with opportunity to use science, technology, engineering, and maths in their work. To introduce the concept to the younger children in school it is hoped they will be able to create 2D drawings which can then be brought to life and printed out as a 3D model.

We aim to use the 3D printer across the National Curriculum to support children in developing their creativity and imagination, speaking and listening skills, writing opportunities as well as enabling children to investigate problem solving and evaluating work.

 

Today was pirate day in Class 2!

This morning we received a letter from PC Button who had been investigating our pirate break in. We solved a series of clues which led to our stolen gold doubloons! During the afternoon we took part in a pirate puppet making workshop and had lots of fun being creative. Our puppets looked fantastic! Thank you to all who took part and came to help, it was a great day!

Awards 3rd February 2018

A message from Dr Digger…

When we arrived at school today, we had received a video from Dr Digger, a palaeontologist from The Natural History Museum.

He told us that a dinosaur had been spotted at Kimberworth Community Primary School, and it had laid some eggs in our playground!!

He asked us to help him look for the eggs…so off we went on a dinosaur egg hunt. We were so excited and couldn’t believe what we found….

Come and have a look in Foundation Two to see for yourself!!
